If you have been to Banff lately, you might have seen a line of people on Banff Avenue and Caribou Street. They aren’t there for a vaccine, they are there for the bread.
Uprising Bakery has been supplying the Bow Valley with fresh bread since the fall of 2018. Their slogan – “traditional tastes, artisan attitude” – is spot on. All of their ingredients are fresh and preservative free, so when they opened their bake shop and espresso bar – the whole seemingly valley lined up.
Uprising’s new location offers a variety of bread, but also sandwiches (vegan and meat options), pastries, coffee and fresh specialty baked goods. The menu is always changing, depending on what is coming out of the oven. We recommend the falafel sandwich and their classic "straight-up grilled cheese.”
The bake shop is open seven days a week. To learn more, people can visit: www.theuprisingbakery.com/bakeshop
