Happy Birthday, Common Loaf



I hear there was a disco ball in the Common Loaf Bake Shop last night. Who would've thunk? The Common Loaf is 30 years old. Congratulations to Maureen and all of the staff over those three decades who have made this place a Tofino institution. You can read more about the history here.

[If you're wondering about the name, Common Loaf, the inspiration came from the poem by Judy Grahn, which reads, in part, "a common woman is as common as a common loaf of bread . . . and will rise."]
