If you’ve got a strong sweet tooth, you’ve likely already heard about the picture-worthy, nostalgic treats at Milk Bar. Home of the iconic Compost Cookie, Cereal Milk Soft Serve, and unique “naked” layered cakes. The playful concept was created in New York by award-winning (and Netflix-starring) pastry chef Christina Tosi – and Canadians can finally get a taste without crossing the border.

The first-ever Milk Bar opened back in 2008 in New York’s East Village, with a unique “choose-your-own-adventure” space created for visitors to “taste, build, and play.” The brand has since expanded with locations in Boston, Washington DC, LA, Las Vegas, Toronto, and now (finally!), Vancouver.

According to a release, the full-service Milk Bar at Nordstorm Pacific Centre is the first in Canada – and it’s open for business starting Friday, November 18th.
