La Ruelle Bakery

Description: Tucked away in a back alley just off of Baker street in Nelson lies an inconspicuous little bakery, no bigger than your typical living room. When you open the door and walk inside it's like you walked right into the middle of an old school French bakery. The light is dim, the smell of yeast and baked bread is intense and bakers are busily weighing out raw sourdough and pulling out golden brown loaves of bread fresh from the oven, right in front of you.

This Focaccia has a rustic texture with a soft and pillowy inside. The flavour is yeasty, slight sour and with a touch of sea salt and rosemary on top - everything you want in a loaf of focaccia.


About La Ruelle Bakery

La Ruelle Bakery, formerly known as Au Soleil Levant, is a historic French Canadian bakery that has been operating in Nelson for 30 years. When former owner Raymond Gariépy decided to retire in 2024, long-time employee Justine Gareau-Loyer assumed ownership of the bakery. The batton was passed on and Justine decided to renovate the bakery and refresh the brand under the new name Le Ruelle.

La Ruelle Bakery specializes in authentic 100% sourdough bread with no yeast or rising agents added. And they use locally-source organic flour from Anita's Flour Mill out of Chilliwack. With their experience and passion for baking Justine and her team make some of the best sourdough bread in the Kootenays and we're beyond excited to be able to share their bread with you!
