March 22, 2021
Blacksmith Bakery is to open new location at Latimer Village in North Langley!
The popular artisan bakeshop will be the delicious jewel of the new Latimer Village retail high street at Vesta Properties’ master planned community, Latimer Heights. “We are excited to announce that Latimer Village will be home to Blacksmith Bakery’s newest location. They are the exact type of tenant we envisioned for Latimer Village high street – local, boutique, and delicious!” says Kent Sillars, President of Vesta Properties.
The café will be located in the south-east quadrant of the community with a patio facing out onto a courtyard and surrounding greenspace, including a natural water feature. This will provide a new meeting place for the community, including the estimated 5,000+ new residents who will call the Latimer Heights community home upon completion.
Blacksmith is a boutique bakery serving luxurious treats and gourmet sandwiches in a relaxed setting that appeals to all ages. It was founded in 2014 by Chef Stephan Schigas, a Langley native who has worked around the world in renowned restaurants and bakeries, and his wife, Bernice Farah. Since then, Blacksmith has attracted a loyal following for their rich, buttery and decadent treats seldom found in the suburbs of Canada. “Our new location will offer the vibe of a pedestrian-friendly street with the exposure and convenience of being on a major road – that combo is hard to come by” says Chef Stephan “we can’t wait to bring our hand forged viennoiserie, patisserie, cakes, eclairs, tarts, cookies, savories, soups, thin-crust pizzas and gourmet sandwiches to more people!”
Blacksmith Bakery creates real food using traditional artisanal methods, baked fresh daily, on-site, in open kitchens using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. It’s not just the food either! Blacksmith Bakery prides themselves on having master baristas on staff who provide a delicious range of espresso-based coffee drinks using their own Anvil espresso roasted by local coffee legend Agro Roasters.
Blacksmith’s flagship café is located in Fort Langley’s Reid Block building at 9190 Church Street. The building is named after Charles Reid, who established Reid Blacksmith Shop and Garage on the site circa 1910 and gives both the building and the bakery their names. The second location, an express, was opened just this summer at the new Langley YNJ airport terminal building. Both locations are open 7 days a week from 7am-5pm, be sure to visit to get a taste of what’s coming to Latimer Village!
