Patisserie Lebeau Review – Authentic Belgian Waffles

I absolutely adore waffles – especially the traditional Belgian varieties. My maiden name originates from Belgium, so perhaps loving waffles is in my blood? Regardless, I’m always on the lookout for tasty waffle offerings around this city and during our travels. Did you know that you can find authentic Belgian waffles in Vancouver? Yes, it’s […]

Caffè Artigiano (Hornby) Review

Caffe Artigiano serves, without a doubt, some of the best espresso in Vancouver. And just like their Kitsilano location, Caffe Artigiano downtown on Hornby always delivers on taste, ambiance and excellent customer service. Baristas really do go above and beyond to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Instead of pouring raw sugar into my […]

Marketplace IGA Bistro (Broadway & Vine) Review – Best Coffee & Muffin Deal

Fresh out of coffee on Easter Sunday morning, we ventured out in the rain for a much needed caffeine fix. Since yesterday was a holiday, our regular coffee haunts like Evelyn’s Cafe and Garden Corner Cafe were both closed. And having most recently visited La Petite France and Plaisir Sucre, we wanted to try something […]

La Petite France Cafe Review

Just around the corner from our place is the home of a little French bakery & cafe appropriated called “La Petite France”. This authentic “Mini France” shop is located on Arbutus & 10th Avenue in Kitsilano. With calming light peach colored walls, French music softly playing in the background, and lovely artwork on the walls, […]

Moka House Shoal Point Review (Victoria, BC)

When we lived in Victoria, we’d often head over to Cook Street Village to meet friends at the Moka House. Incidentally, the coffee shop was actually founded by a friend from high school’s parents. Now a franchised company, Moka House has seven locations around Victoria and the lower mainland. During our recent trip to Vancouver […]

Georgia Cafe and Deli Review (Sidney, BC)

We were visiting family on Vancouver Island last weekend, and ventured into the heart of the quaint little town of Sidney for coffee. Located right at the end of Beacon Ave, on the main level of the beautiful Sidney Pier Hotel & Spa, we decided Georgia Cafe and Deli would be the perfect spot to […]

Starbucks (Arbutus & Valley) Review

Did you know that Starbucks opened its first location outside Seattle at Waterfront Station, right here in Vancouver? Either love it or hate it, the company has infiltrated the world. Its presence in so many countries is a factor contributing to what people loathe or despise about the coffee giant. Some will argue that local […]

Plaisir Sucré Review

Plaisir Sucré is a little French cafe and bakery located on the pleasant Arbutus & West 10th Avenue area of Kitsilano. French owner and baker extraordinaire, Fabrice Roché, is always there to greet his customers with welcoming exuberance. The cafe offers daily fresh-baked French pastries – like delectable croissants, pain au chocolat, and brioche. Other […]

Bonchaz Bakery Cafe Review

Expectations are strange things, aren’t they? I came to Bonchaz (downtown Vancouver on West Hastings) looking forward to indulging myself in delicious French brioche. An expectation I got from a friend claiming Bonchaz has ‘amazing brioche buns’. If you throw around a word as glorious as brioche, well that pastry better deliver. When I think […]
