New food spot in Tofino – Pasticceria Conradi :
Heading into downtown Tofino? Turn left at the 4-way (there is only one, maybe two 4-way stops).
You see The Common Loaf bakery on the left? Yes? Well keep going there little sister, because on the other side of the side street is a new Bakery-Trattoria-Pizzaria called Pasticceria Conradi. Let me tell you, this is just what the doctor ordered.
Maybe, just maybe it will be a wake-up call for those people that run the Loaf that serve that dodgy brown stuff they call coffee. This new place gleams.
They have an Astra espresso machine.
They serve Serious-Coffee brewed right. The espresso is real and served with a smile. The food is to die for.
Just in for coffee? Get an Americano and a glazed or powdered Bombolino (Italian doughnut) – a fist-sized wonder of pastry-flour, oil and sugar, filled oh-so-gently with custard and deep-fried. Yum-yum, have another. My wife and I visited 2 days in row. Coming to Tofino? Make sure you stop here.
