The best Chinese bakery in Vancouver. The bbq'd pork and pineapple bun are very good. Soft, flavourful, with a lovely, flaky sweet crust. Friendly people at the counter too.
Awesome sandwiches, one the best Americano's in downtown, and an amazing tea selection.
It's the sweetest little place in Vancouver for a great selection of both macarons and tea. The immense tea selection they have is any tea lovers dream.
A beautiful little spot tucked away at the edges of "respectable" Gastown, Cadeaux is mostly a working kitchen and a counter featuring the daily spread, but there are a few places to sit down, and if you can manage to snag one it's a great place to sit and have a leisurely coffee or tea and chat with a friend. The London Fog cake is hands down the favourite item here. See Menu.
They offer a large variety of Belgian chocolates as well as dark and milk chocolate hot cocoas. It is a small location so gets very busy very quickly but you can enjoy a seat outside. Due to the size, it can get quite loud.
Great selection of chocolates, always fresh and so many items to choose from, highly recommended, especially the ice cream bar dipped in white chocolate.
If you're looking for top-notch baked goods (yes, including French macarons), look no further because French Made Baking has you covered. The macarons are amazing. Large assortment of flavours. Highly recommend to anyone.
An outstanding selection of chocolates in all shapes and flavors from this long established store. Worth a look.
Beautiful chocolates and helpful service. Their chocolates would make a beautiful gift or a splurge for yourself! They have nice packaging and some really great flavours for their chocolates.
Everything and anything delicious can be found here. Pastries, cakes, cookies - even gluten-free Bliss Balls. They make fine pastries, special cakes, delicate mini cheesecakes, lovely desserts and fresh cookies/muffins. The pastries are luscious with great-quality ingredients and you can tell, baked with loving attention. There are line-ups on both sides of the counter, but worth the wait.
Beta 5 was chosen as one of North America's Top 10 Chocolatiers in 2012. Excellent chocolates, pastries, sweet delights... but a bit overpriced. BETA5 chocolates "are produced in small batches using ethically sourced estate chocolates and premium ingredients.
Great location, fast service and delicious food. I would highly recommend this place for a date night and family dinner such as Christmas. Overlooking a panorama of downtown Vancouver and set on top of a hill in the middle of a park, the view is spectacular. MENU
Come to get real experience and atmosphere with Ukrainian trying their famous dishes such as borscht, cabbage rolls perogies, and many more of them. All their food is from homemade Grandma's traditional recipes. This place looks like a bit of a dive but the food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Most of the entrees can easily feed two adults so consider getting an appetizer with entrée to split, unless you are starving. Standouts in the menu are the cabbage rolls, cottage cheese perogies, and sausages. MENU
As far as bars go in Vancouver, there are many to choose from. When choosing, make sure to put Bacchus at the top of that list. It's swank and plush with overstuffed chairs and dark woodThe menu is awesome and this is the type of place that you ask what the servers favorite meal is and you will never be disappointed. The wine list is also incredible A classy place for a Christmas dinner. MENU
This is a very classy place - people come here to be seen. (not shocking since its the Four Seasons, but still wanted to state the obvious). The service and food are always good. They have an excellent selection of wine and drinks, and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. See menus for Christmas, American Thanksgiving , New Years Eve and every day.
