Our Food Menu

We are currently open on Wednesday and Saturday only.  We do our regular baking each day.  If you would like something specific – and especially if you would like multiple items or bread – we recommend that you order ahead. 

Orders can be made in person, by text (604-679-4564), by email (convivialcafe@gmail.com) or by phone (604-675-9885).  Orders should not be assumed until confirmed and bread orders in particular should be made a minimum of one day in advance.  Large orders will require pre-payment in person or by e-transfer to the above address. 

All items can be served to eat inside/outside or to take away.

BAKED GOODS

We bake a variety of goods daily.  All but the croissant, sausage rolls and baguette are made from scratch.  To ensure freshness and to accommodate variable demand, we bake throughout the day.  You never know when we might be pulling a fresh batch of triple chocolate cookies out of the oven…!

Scones – $3.10+

Our scones are appreciated for their crispy outside and fluffy inside – and because we believe that, for example, there should actually be cheese in a cheese scone!  We bake a variety daily, trying to have at least one flavour from each of the following categories.  Despite labelling some as “sweet” we rarely add sugar to the scones.  (* Indicates the most popular/common flavours.)
