On one weekend in May, my day started late. While I was ready to go out, I was thinking where to go, as I had to buy some bread. I also thought about going hiking a bit. By they time I got to Vancouver downtown, I had decided to go to West Vancouver, to hike and go to the bakery. Yet, the bus was either delay or just didn’t come for over 30 min, so I had to skip for hiking and went to the bakery directly.

The place may not really be a bakery. They are a cafe, for sure! Savary Island Pie Company is located on Marine Drive, close to 15th street. That is the west side of Ambleside or Park Royal in West Vancouver.

I bought a loaf of Italian bread and also ordered from soups of the day for lunch-ish snack. They asked me if I wanted to slice some pieces from what I bought, to eat with the soup, so I asked.

Ohhhhh, this soup was great! I wish this is on their regular menu. 🙂 The bread was good, too.

This beautiful tulips were on the table. Of course, it was in May!

Just a little side path for a cute pic. After I left this cafe, I walked on Ambleside Beach. While I was walking by a pond, I found swan babies swimming with their mom and dad! A person who came by told me that they were about 3 weeks old. Aren’t they cute?

On another sunny weekend, Collin and I decided to go for walk. He said he had never been to the Park Royal shopping mall, which was surprising me! So, I suggested him have brunch and go for walk on beach side trail before going the mall.

Now is the chance! The last time when I visited this place with my friend, we had slices of pie, and I found they had breakfast and lunch menu, too. I was excited to re-visit for that.

Savary Island Pie Company is located on Marine Drive, close to 15th street. That is the west side of Ambleside or Park Royal in West Vancouver. This small bakery cafe was packed when we arrived, and luckily we were able to have a seat.

The sandwiches tasted so good! He liked his grilled cheese, and I liked the organic chicken with fresh basil! You know what? The bread was so good.

When I ordered, there was some one-bite bread samples at the cash register. I tasted it, and right away, I bought one before I even had the sandwiches.

One of my friends and I went hiking on a sunny day in September. It was a bit steeper in the beginning than I thought, and after 9km of walking, we were so exhausted. As I suggested to her even before hiking that their sweets could help us get back energy, we decided to go there.

Savary Island Pie Company is a few blocks west from Ambleside or Park Royal in West Vancouver. It may be difficult to find a parking spot during lunch time, etc.

My choice, Slice of Raspberry Blueberry Pie

My friend’s choice, Slice of Apple Pie
