Trafiq Café & Bakery West Vancouver Review

French-inspired Trafiq Café & Bakery is a neighbourhood favourite located on Marine Drive in West Vancouver. We really enjoyed our visit to Trafiq’s newer sister cafe on Main Street a while ago, so we wanted to visit the original location to see how it would compare. Also a licensed establishment, this Trafiq has similar bistro […]

Faubourg Macarons Now Available! [Review]

We stopped by one of our favourite French bakeries in Vancouver last week – Faubourg in Kerrisdale – for some coffee and Viennoiserie. When we walked in, the first thing we noticed is that Faubourg now bakes Parisian macarons! Finally! (They had been selling them for a few weeks when we visited.) If you know […]

Faubourg – Vancouver’s Own Gourmet Retailer

This is our third review of Faubourg, Vancouver’s Own Gourmet Retailer. Our first visit focused on their delectable pastries, while the second featured a variety of their delicious weekend brunch dishes offered in their Bistro. And on this occasion I wanted to highlight a couple of their fantastic desserts. Out of sheer habit, we always […]

Soirette Macarons & Tea Review

In a French macaron-crazed city like Vancouver, Soirette Macarons & Tea has made a welcomed addition to the current dessert scene. The beautiful shop recently opened its doors in a prime downtown location, perfectly situated on West Pender Street in dazzling Coal Harbour. Stylish and sophisticated, the space is impeccably decorated with calming soft blue […]

Located in the heart of Kerrisdale is the delightful Faubourg Boulangerie. The front section of Faubourg is its bakery/coffee shop, while at the back you’ll find its lovely bistro. A light and airy high-ceilinged space, decked in hardwood floors, marble-topped tables and fanciful chairs imported from France, Faubourg’s bistro offers table service and seating from […]

Les Faux Bourgeois Review

After we enjoyed afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, we managed to secure an early reservation for dinner at Les Faux Bourgeois in Mount Pleasant. Les Faux Bourgeois is a highly-hyped casual French restaurant located East 15th Avenue, near the non-foodie intersection of Kingsway & Fraser Street. We were seated at the bar and presented […]

Traditional poutine dishes, complete with hearty brown gravy and squeaky Quebec cheese curds, were served before the competition began (pictured below-left), while […]

French Made Baking

We had heard of French Made Baking through word-of-mouth and happened upon them at the Baker’s Market Vancouver this past Saturday: French Made Baking is a French-from-France couple, David and Catherine, both passionate about food and even more passionate about sharing it with family, friends, strangers: …anybody really as long as you have a sweet […]

Le Marché St. George Review

Situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood, Le Marché St. George is a delightfully rustic market and authentically French café on the corner of Saint George Street & East 28th Avenue (between Main & Fraser). With little signage indicating that it is indeed an establishment, you might walk right past this quaint East Vancouver hidden gem. […]
