I came here when it just opened to the public and I can still remember my first bite into their tiramisu. Heaven. Every time I think about it, I can’t help but drool. It’s really one of my favourite things to eat in Vancouver. I don’t know if it’s because I don’t have it often or if it is really that good, I always make the excuse to get it whenever I am close by.
Unfortunately, this time I came by, they didn’t have it. Instead, they had a Western take on the classic – Tiramisu cheesecake. Tempting, right? Of course, I ordered it just to see if it looked as good as it tasted. I also decided to get a pocket since it was lunch time and for me, I need something savoury before my sweets.
Both items were definitely alright, but they didn’t leave an impact on me that was note-worthy. In fact, the pocket filling was over-seasoned and made the wrap very salty to eat. The horchata was disappointing too, though I was so excited when I saw it on the shelves. If you are looking for a good horchata, I recommend Bandidas Taqueria.
Still, this is my favourite place to go to when I’m on campus and have some extra time. It’s pretty consistent in terms of quality and with so many baked good options, you are sure to find something up your alley. It is honestly like a mini PureBread. If not, there are nearby restaurants that might have something available. Still, I would pick this gem in a heartbeat. Like most places I adore, their philosophy is all about home-made everything, incorporating as much organic and local ingredients whenever possible. That of course, makes my attachment to this bakery a little bit stronger.
