Celebrated Chocolatier-Pâtissier Thierry Busset, opens a she-she foo-foo pastry shop on Alberni St Downtown. I’ve been complaining there is just not enough bakeries in Downtown. Walking in, I was giddy with sweet goodness. Every product was so deliciously presented.
I expected the prices were going to be steep, especially situated on Alberni and Georgia. The prices were even more expensive than my favorite pastry cafe, Thomas Haas which compares to $5.95 vs here $6.95.
I didn’t get a chance to try out the chocolates but, it is a promise that I will.
My friend, Gary has tried every Tiramisu in town and rated this a 8.5/10! The high marks is almost unheard of from him.
Forgot what these cakes were called but they were rum based. Not my favorite, although it may just be my preference. They sure looked pretty, that and the rum was what sold it.
