Platform 7 on Broadway

Platform 7 Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter 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.

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.

Caffe Artigiano

Caffe Artigiano Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI used to think that this cafe was really high end when I first moved to Vancouver over a decade ago. Wow! A lot has changed since then, in terms of competition amongst the coffee/cafe market and as well as my tastes after getting into the foodie world. idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings1 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings2 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings3 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings4Their coffee is good, but I am not a fan of their old-restaurant-bathroom-tile-floor-table top. It’s bumpy and not that great for eating on top, and doesn’t look appealing. The brick walls has the old hipsterish feel, along with their vintage decor.

Butter Baked Goods

Butter Baked Goods Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoTo meet up with a friend Sheepie and I thought we’d check out Butter. It was a very chic place, with pastel, soft greens and pink. Their branding was well done, and one could spend more time just looking not only at the food, but the design as well.

But it was too buttery and sweet. Enough so, that I had to give the leftover to Sheepie who was happy to take any sweets to satisfy his sweet tooth. It looked pretty, but the custard was cold and hard. I like fluffy, airy, soft custards – usually found in Asian cakes.

Super cute place, but unfortunately, I am not the right target for their sweets. Still nice cafe to catch up with friends!
