Bigsby the Bakehouse

Bigsby the Bakehouse may be only a month-old fixture in Vancouver's Mackenzie Heights neighbourhood, but proprietors Earl and Ellen Morris (a brother and sister team) have been on the local food scene since ... well, forever.

The Morris family operated the iconic Red Onion in Kerrisdale for 26 years, before they decided it was time to change direction, sell the Onion, and start cooking the kind of food that they themselves preferred to eat: organic, health conscious fare served up in a casual, community-welcoming environment. After taking a year off to clear their heads, they settled on a space in a sleepy corner of MacKenzie and 33rd, brightened it up with a few colourful quirky touches, and then lured in the neighbourhood with a simple but effective bait - ridiculously good bread.
