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.
Once you step into the shop, you will see so many baked goods and desserts.
The treats are quite affordable and most are under $2.
They also sells a variety of cakes, tarts and desserts.
Forty Ninth Parallel is what they serve if you need a little coffee with your treats.
Zaban Puff Pastry is a Persian pastry with a touch of honey on top. It is flakey and not overly sweet.
Danish Pastry had more of a bread to cream ratio. I wish there were more cream and peaches to their danishes.
Dark Chocolate Mousse is nice and creamy with a bit of cake on the bottom.
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.
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.
They also sell Zolbia and Bamieh, traditional Iranian treats drenched in honey. It’s quite sweet, so it’s not for everyone.
Baklava comes in square bite-size pieces. It has a strong taste of honey but is pretty addictive.
Almond Florentine is a brittle, roasted almond mingled with the taste of candied fruit. It is also dipped in chocolate on the other side.
Brownie bites in a cup.
Each bite was good and its the perfect size if you just need a bite of brownie.
Cannoli was good. The inside is made on dense fudge with bits of nuts and the crispy tube.
Tahini Granola Balls comes in a pack of 4. Another alternative treat for people who are vegan or gluten free.
Almond Apricot Tart has the apricots scattered all around. It tasted alright.
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.
