My wife and I needed a short break from the Mural walking tour and wanted to try Nanaimo bars, and Utopia Bakery was the perfect spot. Small, nondescript bakery. The coffee and nanamio bars (regular and peanut butter)hit the spot.

Oh my! Pastries and bread and coffee! Oh my! If you want an extra-special coffee break, you will find it at Utopia Euroean bakery! We had the hazelnut meringue pastries and apple strudel. Both were fantastic!
