A little bakery in North Burnaby. They have a variety of breads, cakes and pastries. They all looked good, so we decided to give the pastries a try.
Unfortunately, it’s the worst pastries ever. It was hard, dry, and tasted unnatural. There was nothing good about it except for the aesthetics. I barely ate them, and gave the rest to Sheepie. Despite him eating it all, he wasn’t pleased with them either.
The cafe part seems to be bare, but customers after customers do come by to pick up their special occasion cake. I would not want a cake from here.
After discovering the one in Granview area, I wanted to also check out the one on Broadway. Again, the interior was built to look like a platform at a train station. Such a unique cafe, I love it! Unlike the other one, this one was less crowded, though it could have been because it was a weekday early evening. The place is clean and has a hipsterish feel. The concrete wall is fake, but it’s still fun to be in a Disney-like feel.
We ordered a Blueberry Muffin $3.00 and Iced Americano $3.00. The Iced Americano was really good and pretty large. It was good that we were sharing it! The pastries and desserts were limited, and none that were appealing to me (more appealing to Sheepie who is into the tarts, muffins, nutty things, etc.)
The service is friendly with all the staff smiling and saying thank you or goodbye when leaving. We’ll be back! A great place to bring people from out of town to a unique, memorable cafe.
After living in downtown for so long, and visiting the gallery several times, I don’t know how I missed going to this cafe. It can be easily missed as it is on top of the gallery.
The cafe was pretty bare. It had an European cafe feel, and had a high-end charm. We each had a piece of dessert with Coffee $2.25. Nice presentation! The chocolate cake was really creamy and tasty. Mmmmmmm!
Since it was warm, we sat out on the patio. Definitely would come back again for sure!
