German – Edelweiss Village
Edelweiss Village is situated in Calgary’s northwest and is a go-to spot for European products and German baked goods. Try an Apfelstrudel with rum-soaked raisins, apples and almonds wrapped in a flaky pastry, or share a Streuselkuchen Blueberry (blueberry streusel cake!) with family and friends. Items are made fresh daily at the Edelweiss Bakery. Browse the bakery menu and order for pickup here.
French – Black Sheep Pâtisserie
One reviewer said Black Sheep was “real French pastry at its finest” and we totally agree. If you’re looking for a perfectly crisp yet flaky croissant, this is the place to go! With ten flavours of croissants available, you can try them all and decide which is your favourite. It doesn’t just stop at croissants, though—Black Sheep has traditional French bakery items like flan parisien (vanilla bean egg custard tart) and millefeuille (vanilla slice) that’ll make you feel like you’re sitting at a café in Paris.
Japanese – Foster’s Oguraya Bakery
Foster’s Oguraya Bakery mainly operates as a wholesale business with their products reaching customers from Ontario to British Columbia, but they will still give walk-in customers a warm welcome! Catch them during the day for authentic Japanese pastries like red bean buns, cream puffs and shoku-pan Japanese loaf bread.
Middle Eastern – Tasse Bakery
Tasse Bakery has hundreds of five-star Google reviews and brings authentic flavours of the Middle East to Calgary. Try out their specialty, knafeh, a sweet and cheesy Middle Eastern delicacy with phyllo pastry and soaked in a sugar-based syrup and topped with pistachios. They also serve savoury options like their fatayer pies and mana’eesh flatbreads.
