Solly’s Bagelry (Mount Pleasant) Review

We were craving a quick soup + sandwich combo for lunch, and happened to be near Solly’s Bagelry on the corner of West 7th & Yukon (near one of my favorite places, Whole Foods Cambie). Bonus: We discovered they provide free parking, which we accessed via 7th Ave. Apart from this Mount Pleasant location, Solly’s […]

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 […]

Sweet Revenge Patisserie Review

Sweet Revenge Patisserie is a unique little dessert house encompassing a Victorian-esque theme. It has a warm and very dimly lit interior – with red wallpaper and old oil lamps. The small room houses antique looking furniture, including floral patterned armchairs and dark wooden tables and chairs. This desserts-only restaurant specializes in “good old-fashioned home-made […]

Dairy Queen Kitsilano Review

We ended up at Dairy Queen in Kits for dessert on Saturday night, after having dinner at Suika izakaya on West Broadway. As I’m sure you’re aware, not all fast food joints are created equal, and some locations are better than others. Food and service at this particular free-standing DQ restaurant (Broadway & Trafalgar) in […]

Cold Stone Creamery (Point Grey) Review

Cold Stone Creamery opened its first location in Tempe, Arizona. Incidentally, our first Cold Stone Creamery experience was at a Suns basketball game in nearby Phoenix, AZ. I ordered their Coffee Lovers Only signature creation – coffee ice cream mixed into roasted almonds, Heath toffee bar, drizzled with caramel, nestled in a chocolate dipped waffle […]

Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt (San Diego, California)

Way back in 2005, SoCal socialites were raving about their ‘Crackberry’ adoration for Pinkberry. A year later we were living in Seoul enjoying South Korea’s über popular Red Mango (read our experience here) frozen yogurt. I remember thinking (as is the general consensus) that the company seemed like a copycat of the famous American Pinkberry […]

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, […]

Bon Rouge Bistro Review (Victoria, BC)

While we were in Victoria, we had drinks & dessert at Bon Rouge with our recently engaged friends Emmy & Justin. Located in a 1920’s building on Courtney Street in downtown Victoria, Bon Rouge Bistro & Lounge is a beautifully decorated Parisian bistro style restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and offers French-inspired comfort food to […]

Ganache Patisserie Yaletown Review

Ganache Patisserie is a posh Parisian-style bakery located on Homer Street in Yaletown. They offer modern French cakes with a twist (whole and individual servings), fresh baked pastries, macaroons, personalized wedding cakes, etc. Visually, their desserts are unbelievably stunning and look like true works of art. We decided to order two individual serving cakes to […]

Sweet Obsession Cakes & Pastries Review

Sweet Obsession Cakes & Pastries is nestled right next to Trafalgar’s Bistro on West 16th & Trafalgar – located in Kitsilano/Arbutus Ridge. They offer an exquisite selection of daily, fresh-baked desserts: cakes, cookies, pastries, tortes, tarts, flans, etc. as well as sandwiches and espresso. This cozy 16-seat cafe, is a wonderful place to sip a […]
