Open 24 hours a day, Breka is my favourite bakery in Vancouver. Open 24/7 for all of your coffee, donut, and sandwich desires. Breka is our go-to spot for bread as well. We buy day-old bread for around $2.00-$2.50. Our favourites are Sovital and Bauernbrot. On a typical day we'll stop in for an Americano or a Mocha with an apple fritter (which are our tried and true staples). The apple fritters are huge and more than enough to share. My only qualm with the apple fritters is that I wish there were more apples actually inside.
