yes there was some kind of bakery sandwich type place. I was going to VCC until 2012 and there was something in that spot I can remember passing a few times.

There was a Bread Garden operating there in 2010. I have a picture - not a good one, and as far as I can tell, no external sign, but they were there.

The West Broadway duck place is also from Beijing but not as old.

The dining establishment is originally from Beijing, and has been operating three restaurants in Shanghai and Xi'an since 1997. This will be the roast duck chain’s first location in North America.

General manager Denny Sun is excited to bring his family’s restaurant business to Vancouver. He is the one who encouraged his father and restaurant proprietor, Sun Yi, to open a location in the 604 instead of Toronto.
