Upper Crust Bakery Charleswood Closed
In 2012, the Upper Crust Bakery took over Oma's Bakery at 3416 Roblin Boulevard. Before that it was Roblin Bakery and Pastry. This week the closed sign is up and the windows have papered over. The Upper Crust had been owned by the Pesticelli family who also owned
the original Upper Crust in Selkirk, Manitoba. Pretty much every day
people driving down Roblin would see people in the bakery making
purchases. It seemed the last remnants of a downtown Charleswood that used to have bank branches, a meat shop and a bakery would end forever.
Fear not. A sign has gone up and a website declares that S Square Pâtisserie will be opening in that location soon. They call themselves A Little Taste of Paris in Winnipeg.
Sophon Chhin is the owner and head pastry chef at S Squared Pâtisserie and had been looking for a location for sometime. His specialty is desserts and in particularly Macrons. The ship is still being worked on so Charleswood will have to wait and see what emerges in the days ahead.
