Cucumber Cafe in Richmond


Update 12-Jun-2010: Cucumber Cafe is now closed.

I’m so glad that the kids are back to school and we’re back to normal routine. Polly and I take our first opportunity to have a ladies’ day out at the Cucumber Cafe in Richmond. We had a long break in December as either one of us was not feeling well or our kids were not feeling well. Well, winter is the flu and cold season, :(.

Cucumber Cafe is located at 10211 St. Edwards Dr, adjacent to the new Sandman Signature Hotel. It’s a new cafe in the block. The first thing we noticed was the good service. The waiter opened the door to greet us warmly.

The Cafe is cozy and warmly decorated with a real fireplace and the brightly orange coloured seats bring the warm morning glory into this place.

As usual, Polly and I were looking for cheesecake to endeavor. Luckily, there is one in the menu.

We ordered the Creme Brulee Cheesecake for $4.95. This cheesecake is rich and served with caramel sauce.

We also ordered a Warm Apple Brown Betty which is apples baked with brown sugar and cinnamon, topped with streusel and served with vanilla ice-cream and caramel sauce. The warm apples and the cold ice-cream is just a perfect marriage. This dessert costs $3.95.

Polly ordered a hot chocolate while I had coffee. The hot chocolate is served with marshmallow which and whipped cream. The hot chocolate costs $2.95 and the coffee costs $2.30. The coffee comes with free refill.

I would recommend this place for their good service and quite reasonably price menu. Before I shred the receipt, I noticed this printed message that Cucumber Cafe is honoured as one of Canada’s Top Ten New Restaurants in 2007 by Where Magazine.

  1. I saw this, wondered how I missed it and was thinking I’d have to go into the city and find this place Until I realized it was in British Columbia and not Virginia. How disappointing!

  2. My wife and I have enjoyed delicious breakfasts at the Richmond Cucumber Cafe a number of times and will continue to go there. Question: Does the Richmond Cucumber Cafe also serve dinner?
