Owners Betty and Jacky Hung
Beaucoup Bakery & Café opened its doors in December 2012, offering French-inspired pastries. The reason for opening Beaucoup Bakery was simple, to leave the world a happier place, even if through something as simple as a cookie. The company’s priority is to put care and pride into everything it does, from the ingredients used and the little details that go into the baking, through to the way the company treats valued customers and friends.
Sister and brother duo Betty and Jacky Hung realized their dreams when they assumed ownership of Beaucoup Bakery from founder Jackie Kai Ellis in 2017. Betty began with Beaucoup Bakery as an intern from the very beginning and worked her way up to head pastry chef, receiving one of Beaucoup Bakery’s scholarships in Paris to train at the famed École Gastronomique Bellouet Conseil. Previously a designer, she had little formal food training but her passion to create delicious pastries helped drive her to succeed. Jacky spent many summers and holidays at Beaucoup Bakery as a barista, in between his studies. He enjoys being front-of-house, chatting with regulars and immersing himself in his love for coffee. Both are committed to continuing what Beaucoup has started – inspiring with quality and care.

Must try: Croissants. One of the most popular ones is infused with local honey, filled with almond frangipane and fresh banana slices, and then topped with rye crunch, honey caramel and crushed banana chips.

“The pint-sized spot exudes je ne sais quoi…Every morning, the pastry team whips up a variety of croissants and other French pastries such as kouign amann (Breton cake), cinnamon scrolls, and fruit tarts. We love the classic chausson aux pommes for its flaky, melt-in-your mouth pastry and sweet apples. Be sure to order a peanut butter sandwich cookie for later, one of the bakery’s signature items.”

It may be home to Vancouver’s best croissant (we don’t disagree), but it’s the crispy cardamom kouign-amann, peanut-butter sandwich cookies, and expertly pulled shots of 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters espresso that could keep us here all day.
