Located in the historic Oliver Exchange building, Brio Bakery brings together Edmonton’s urban heritage and rural roots. The market-like atmosphere is a nod to Brio’s beginnings at the Downtown Farmers Market. Interior finishes reflect a mash-up of farmhouse warmth with urban coffee house, bringing tin and timber next to historic brick. On busy Saturdays, product flies from the back of house production area through several passthroughs to the display areas in the front. Meanwhile the bread wall acts as display centre, anchoring the space, and providing glimpses of how the bread is produced.
