After dining at Taishoken, the 5 of us walked to Gastown for dessert and to meet up with one more friend. We arrived at Trees Organic in a location which I never knew it existed before. I have walked by it so many times, and never noticed.
With the heavy ramen broth, I was not interested in any more food, so I just had a Rooibos tea $2.40 instead. I also told them, the cakes were really sweet, and I could barely finish half. My friend ordered the Blueberry cheesecake $7/slice. Everyone loved it, and wondered why I would say it was super sweet. I did like it, but then again, we were only taking small bites, sharing a slice. I think it would be different if each of us had one.
The staff seemed to be Japanese, and the service was pretty good. The man who seemed to be the owner even brought in a small table with 2 chairs for us, though we ended up on the counter instead, and finally moving to the bigger table later on. The cafe is quite small, and I think they try to cram in too many tables and chairs… You are practically brushing each others’ chairs.
To get to the bathroom is a bit of a mystery at first. The cafe is inside a mini mall (if I can even call it that). We went into the stairwell, and found that whether we went up or down, there was a gate. We got back onto the floor with the cafe, and tried the elevator down. We came upon an area that looked a bit familiar. Hey! I know this bathroom! I went here when I dined at Al Porte! …so that was interesting.
