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.
Raspberry and Blueberry Tart
Citrus Madeleines, were light. I gobbled up the entire bag within a day.
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.
It was a scorcher day and waiting outside in a lineup for 15 minutes for a doughnut was excruciating. By the time it was our turn to order our expectations were through the roof.
They definitely had some very interesting combinations, maple & bacon, their most popular. Which was basically, a maple doughnut with 2 pieces of bacon on top. Oreo doughnut, powdered raspberry and lemon. The doughnut was overly sweet and the portions were pretty big for $1.95/ doughnut.
They even sell a mini coffin full of doughnuts for $100. Not recommended, it that will definitely give you diabetes.
I was persuaded by its charm, fallen head over heels with its good looks and absolutely titillated all my senses.
By what you say?
A charming French café nestled in Kerrisdale, serving one of the finest and decadent desserts I’ve had of yet. Yes, it may be on par or even surpass my fave, the internationally acclaimed Chocolatier, Thomas Haas Café.
The atmosphere was French modern, chic and friendly. Now the food oooo…my mouth is watering just reminiscing, is scrumptious.
We tried the chocolate croissants, nice, flaky and fresh. It seemed like it just came out of the oven. Our desert lemon tart meringue $5, was to die for. It was tangy made with fresh lemon and not too sweet.
It was just so light I felt like I could eat these the whole day and not get enough.
Absolutely recommend the next time you stop on by Kerrisdale. One of my favourite Café’s in Vancouver

Mouth starts to salivate, eyes start to glaze and the beginning of a wistful smile transforms my face, I must be daydreaming of the Oreo sandwich from butter bakery.At $2.75 a pop I could afford fill to my fridge and have my daily indulgence. The creamy vanilla butter cream filling oozes of richness with the perfect amount of sweetness, in between 2 chewy chocolate cookies, it is a delicious aphrodisiac.
The lemon coconut and walnut bar $2.75 had a the right balance of citrus tanginess and sweetness. The extra crunch of the walnut adds an extra layer of texture to the smooth lemon filling.
Who knew something so simple and small could be such a turn on.
