Bon Bon Bakery

Bon Bon Bakery Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoA 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.

Gallery Cafe

Gallery Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter 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!

Boulangerie la Parisienne Yaletown

Boulangerie la Parisienne Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoOn a Friday after work, Sheepie and I were walking around Yaletown looking for a nice cafe. We came upon this small, corner cafe, and though we were a bit worried on how it was completely empty while the rest of Yaletown was bustling with people, we gave this place a try.

idearabbit_boulangerie_la_parisienne4I had the Chocolate African $4.79.

idearabbit_boulangerie_la_parisienne5Sheepie had the Chocolate Truffle and a Small Latte $3.25.

idearabbit_boulangerie_la_parisienne6 The sides were completely open giving it an open patio, but sheltered feel.

I was extremely disappointed in the cake. It seemed like it was really fluffy with cream, but to my dismay, it was literally like rubber. The lady fingers tasted chemical. I should have stopped eating it right away. I kept trying and forcing myself, considering I paid nearly $5 for this slice of cake. Unfortunately, I could barely finish half. It tasted disgusting. It was the worst cake I’ve ever had in my life.

Sheepie’s cake was also super hard. It was just gounache that was solid. It was rich, but I wouldn’t call it a delicious cake. I gave my cake to him, but even he, who has a sweet tooth couldn’t finish it. It wasn’t edible.

I’m not sure about the coffee, Sheepie kind of drowned it in brown sugar, so it was super sweet, covering the coffee flavour. Service was satisfactory.

Both of us felt really unwell for several hours afterwards. Will never return!
