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 […]

Baguette & Co Review – French Bakery And Coffee House In Kitsilano

We absolutely adore Faubourg in Kerrisdale and find ourselves there quite often, either dining in their Bistro for brunch or enjoying a few of their sinfully good pastries. However, we thought it was time to try a French bakery that we had never been to before and that was closer to our Kits home, such […]

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 […]

New French Cafe & Bakery Hits Main Street

Vancouver, BC — In 1999 Sergio Salamonovitz, a well-known local pastry chef, opened Absolute Sugar commercial bakery in East Vancouver. He wanted to share his incredible baked delicacies with a wider audience and opened French-inspired Trafiq Cafe & Bakery in West Vancouver in 2005. The location was so successful that Sergio opened a second Trafiq […]

Faubourg Bistro Review – Parisian Brunch In Kerrisdale

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 […]

Plaisir Sucre Macarons Review

We visit Plaisir Sucre quite often, and we’ve previously written a review about this wonderful little authentic French cafe & bakery (seen here). Since I’ve been on a Vancouver macaron quest recently (Thomas Haas, Kitchening With Carly here and here, and Thierry), I thought I should try some from our local French bakeries. We first […]

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. […]
