Swiss Bakery has been around since 1993 baking up a storm in Mount Pleasant. They made headlines years ago for creating the Frissant – fritter + croissant combo in Vancouver similar to a Cronut. Since the shop is so close to my work, a few of us came here for lunch on a beautiful Friday.

The space isn’t too large but there are a few seats and a large communal table. Most people did get take out.

What caught my eye when ordering lunch are the mini frissants! Half the guilt of eating a whole frissant. It was a few days before Valentines day, so their usual frissants were shaped like hearts.

Elderflower Mini Frissant was quite greasy. It sat in a paper bag on my desk and all the grease seeped out. This isn’t for those who are on a diet. Since it was a Friday, I didn’t mind. I found the flavour of the elderflower to be a bit odd. Slightly sour.

Coconut Chocolate and caramel Mini Frissant was awesome! That mix of chocolate and caramel were amazing.

Italian Salami on Olive Bread was a good lunch item to order. A good amount of salami and cheese. I got it toasted so the bread was nice and warm.

Overall, its a good lunch time alternative if you are in the Mount Pleasant area.
