If you’re looking for a treat (whether it be for a party, Valentine’s Day, or just for yourself to enjoy) you’ve got plenty of options to choose from in Burnaby.

But there are some smaller foodie businesses in the city we’d like to shout out. In fact, there are a lot of purveyors, bakers, and chefs who operate out of their own private kitchens that you may not know about until you come across their work on social media. Here are a few Burnaby-based small businesses making delicious treats for you to try.

Thyme and Rosemary

If you’re looking for a beautiful charcuterie board for a dinner party or a fancy night in, check out Thyme and Rosemary. Their two-person team creates amazing boards suitable for any occasion, that feature specialty cheeses, crackers, meats, preserves and more. They also make delicious homemade cannolis, biscotti, and macarons so you’ll be covered for dessert too! Find out more here.

Twins Donuts serves up some delicious, unique flavours including Leche Flan/ Dulce Flan, Lemon Curd, Avocado Delight, Bailey’s Cream, Nutella Cream Cheese, and Coconut Latik.
