Middlegate Aroma Bake House is located in South Burnaby close to the Edmonds area. The newest owners have been here for the past 1.5 years serving up a variety of baked goods from all over the world.

Throughout the year, they have close to 900 different items for sale.

aroma-bakery-inner

Once you step into the shop, you will see so many baked goods and desserts.

aroma-cookies

The treats are quite affordable and most are under $2.

aroma-cakes

They also sells a variety of cakes, tarts and desserts.

aroma-bakery-coffee

Forty Ninth Parallel is what they serve if you need a little coffee with your treats.

aroma-bakery-d

Zaban Puff Pastry is a Persian pastry with a touch of honey on top. It is flakey and not overly sweet.

aroma-bakery-danish

 Danish Pastry had more of a bread to cream ratio. I wish there were more cream and peaches to their danishes.

aroma-bakery-mousse

Dark Chocolate Mousse is nice and creamy with a bit of cake on the bottom.

aroma-bakery-nut

Fruit and Nut Scone is packed full of nuts and dried fruit. So much! I really enjoyed it and would make a great power breakfast.

aroma-bakery-rice

Rice Cookies comes in 2s. It doesn’t contain gluten, so it’s great for people who are allergic to gluten. When you first bite into it, it is quite dry, so you will need some coffee or tea to go with it.

aroma-iranian

They also sell Zolbia and Bamieh, traditional Iranian treats drenched in honey. It’s quite sweet, so it’s not for everyone.

aroma-baklava

Baklava comes in square bite-size pieces. It has a strong taste of honey but is pretty addictive.

aroma-almond

Almond Florentine is a brittle, roasted almond mingled with the taste of candied fruit. It is also dipped in chocolate on the other side.

aroma-brownie-cup

Brownie bites in a cup.

aroma-brownie

Each bite was good and its the perfect size if you just need a bite of brownie.

aroma-cannoli

Cannoli was good. The inside is made on dense fudge with bits of nuts and the crispy tube.

aroma-granola-balls

Tahini Granola Balls comes in a pack of 4. Another alternative treat for people who are vegan or gluten free.

aroma-pie

Almond Apricot Tart has the apricots scattered all around. It tasted alright.

aroma-quinoa-cookie

Buckwheat and Quinoa Cookies are gluten-free and is rich in Amino Acids, Dietary Fiber, Minerals, Vitamin Bs, Antioxidants, high in Protein, and easy to digest. Since my sister is Ciliac, this would be a better option than the other treats here.

Overall, they have a lot to choose from and have alternatives for people with dietary restrictions. If you’re looking for a bakery with European and treats from around the world, give Middlegate Aroma Bake House a try.
