3 Quarters Full Cafe

After seeing so many Instagram photos of this quaint little cafe tucked away in the Downtown West End, I finally dragged myself here to check out what all the fuss was about! What I ate: Small Cheesecake ($4.50) Very light and fluffy! Perfect for me! This cheesecake is definitely for you if you like your…

Oui Coffee House

I’ve always walked past this cafe, but I haven’t had a chance to try it until recently. I wanted to like this cafe so bad! It’s very close to my house and they have really good hours (open pretty late). What I drank: Matcha Latte ($4.50) This picture was taken before I had even drank…

Snowy Village – Revisit

Yes, I’m back again! I just cannot resist their croissant taiyaki! Although it’s always busy in here, the staff are pretty good at cleaning the tables and helping you to find seating! What I ate: Croissant Taiyaki (3 for $10) This time we got Nutella, Red Bean and Sweet Potato! Although very greasy (from all…

Choco Coo Cafe

Went here with L before he left for the next 2 years to China for work. The cafe wasn’t too busy when we showed up in the late afternoon, but it filled up later in the evening. I love the decorations and vibe of this cafe! Because of its location and big windows, the entire…

The Bubble Tea Shop

What I ate: Standard Egg Waffle – Original ($3.75) There’s nothing better than a classic egg waffle when I’m feeling home sick for Hong Kong. This was a pretty good version of the Hong Kong classic, with a crisp exterior and a chewy interior. What I ate: Premium Egg Waffle – S’more ($6.95) I love…

Mister

Mister is one of the newest kids on the block jumping onto the ice cream trend in Vancouver. Mister is a nitrogen ice creamery located in Yaletown. What I ate: Crème Brûlée Ice Cream ($8) At $8 this is a very expensive ice cream! While I enjoyed the novelty of it being “made fresh” in front of me,…

Sulmida

Sulmida is the newest Korean dessert cafe on the block. Located across from Metrotown it is a really cute little cafe spot. It is Chinese run (but the cashier in the front was Korean) establishment, which doesn’t matter to me because they make a mean patbingsoo. What I ate: Matcha Patbingsoo (~$10) THIS WAS SO…

Leisure Tea and Coffee

I am obsessed with shaved ice. I’m forever on the look out for a good shaved ice, and if a restaurant offers it, I will invariably order it. Leisure Tea and Coffee is tucked away on Alexandra Road, but as one of the few dessert shops in the area, it always fills up fast. What…

Thomas Haas

What I ate: Double Baked Almond Croissant Thomas Haas is my favourite place to get an Almond Croissant. It’s even better when I happen to come when they take a fresh tray out of the oven! This is by far the most heavenly pastry in Vancouver. I used to come here every week for one,…

Chicco

On a sunny weekend we wanted to have some sweets, and we stumbled across Chicco. They always have such pretty parfaits, that we couldn’t resist! What we ate: Green Tea, Black Sesame, Very Berry Parfait What I ate: Green Tea Parfait The top part was delicious but the bottom was WAY TO DRY! There was…

Cartems Donuterie – Downtown 

What I ate: 2 dozen donuts (Assorted – the classic, vanilla bean, maple walnut, salted caramel etc.) (No not really, I had the coconut one) Overall, I’m not the biggest fan of donuts. I find Cartems’ donuts to be on the oilier side. Also they are very cake like in texture which I’m not a fan of….

Nelson the Seagull

What I ate: Avo on Toast After seeing a million instagram shots of this I wanted to see for myself how good it was. And I was definitely disappointed. It wasn’t anything special, and I don’t think it warrants the high praise that it gets. The toast completely cut up the roof of my mouth,…
