One of the sweetest names in bakeries is officially landing in downtown Vancouver: Milk Bar. And now, we have a sneak peek of the space and an opening date to share with you.

The NYC-founded concept, known for its Compost Cookie, “naked” layer cakes, Cereal Milk Soft Serve, and Milk Bar Pies, will be launching on the first level at Nordstrom Pacific Centre.

Milk Bar was founded by James Beard award-winning pastry chef Christina Tosi. This famous figure in the sweet treat scene was featured on Netflix’s smash hit Chef’s Table: Pastry a few years back.

“We’re thrilled to open our first-ever, full-service Milk Bar store in Canada with our friends at Nordstrom,” says Tosi.

“At Milk Bar, we’re all about challenging the norm of what a bakery can and should be, and where it shows up. So, putting a dessert shop in the world’s most dynamic fashion retailer? Sign us up!”

Tosi opened the first Milk Bar in 2008 in NYC’s East Village and the brand has since launched bakeries in New York, LA, Washington, Boston, Las Vegas, and Toronto, where it operates above Momofuku’s Noodle Bar concept on University Avenue.

Now, the cult-favorite bakery has made its way to Vancouver.

“We’re thrilled to bring this beloved brand to our customers – just in time for the holidays. We hope the shop will become a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.”
