This was the second time visiting the cafe. The first time, I only had a tea with a friend, so I wanted to give it another try for their desserts. Same as last time, the cafe is pretty bare although being right on Granville in busy downtown. Also, like last time, the first thing you notice as you go in are the flies swarming around in the middle.
Despite some reviews of rude customer service, we had a pleasant woman serve us. When Sheepie was picky on which cake he wanted, the lady came around to the front of the counter to see which one he was pointing at.
I ordered the Chocolate Cup $4.95.
I love cream, but this was a HUGE load of cream. There were more custard cream in the cream puffs – though surprisingly only in one of them. It tasted good, but I was done when I had a third of it.
Sheepie had 2 cakes and a Drip Coffee (12oz) $2.65.
When I couldn’t finish my Chocolate Cup, I asked for a to-go box, and the lady gladly packaged it up for me.
Not sure why it’s so empty, but it does make it a bit lonely to be in there with no customers. I’m not sure, but it seemed like one person came in to use the bathroom, the other to charge her phone? and another man was eating out on the patio tables, even though I don’t think he was their customer.
We usually go to Breka around the corner, which is why I thought we’d try something different for a change. Good customer service, but unfortunately, this wont be replacing our Breka.
