Faubourg second location just opened yesterday. I am just dying for more bakeries downtown Vancouver. Located right beside Artigiano’s coffee on Hornby. It’s a quant place to chill-out after dinner, it’s relaxing and the décor features two gorgeous chandeliers right underneath a communal table.
With a decent pastry selection, I choose the croissant, lemon tart and almond twist pastry.
The croissant dough is yeast-risen, apparently this enhances the flavor. It was fairly light and flaky, the only con, was that it could have been more flakier, felt like it’s been sitting there a while. The bottom was a denser than I liked.
The lemon tart was one of my favourite from Faubourg’s first location, so I had to reorder it.
The almond twist pastry, not what it was called was the better pastry of the two, this was not too sweet, super flaky with the right amount of chewiness from the honey. Sooo good.
