On 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.
I had the Chocolate African $4.79.
Sheepie had the Chocolate Truffle and a Small Latte $3.25.
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!
