About Hank's

Hank's Opened in the summer of 2023 and we offer a wide range of sourdough and traditional breads, pastries, sandwiches, salads and desserts all made in house daily by our talented crew from scratch daily.  We have a small number of seats for those who wish to dine in and watch the action in the kitchen, but primarily our menu is designed to be grab and go.

We can't wait to see you at our easy to access spot, located at #3 - 5311 Trans Canada Highway (next to Dulux Paint). 


Freshly made in house daily, our chefs make and bake a wide selection of artisan sourdough breads, pastries and plenty of options for those with a sweet tooth!  We use these breads to make fresh sandwiches daily, great for lunch on the go!
