Calgary Hidden Gems: Yamato Bakery on Centre St.
When it comes to buying gourmet desserts like mousse cake and cheesecake in store, Yamato Bakery on Centre Street North is one of the best.
We recently made a stop into this Calgary hidden gem to pick up a birthday cake for a friend, and after tasting it at the party afterwards, we were left with Yamato’s name permanently imprinted on our mind.
When searching for Yamato Bakery we had to rely on Google Maps. There wasn’t any large sign on the street in front of the strip mall where it’s located at, nor was the business easy to spot from the corner of 13th Avenue and Centre Street North.
If you do know the general location of this hidden gems strip mall however, it makes it easy. For those of you who don’t know or may find Google Maps confusing at times (I know I do), It’s located between 12th Avenue NE and 13th Avenue NE on Centre Street North. See below:

We tried the Mango Mousse cake. Infused with rich mango flavour, this mousse cake had everyone at the party smiling from ear to ear. It was actually so good that it was gone before we thought about taking a picture of it!!
