Krispy Kreme on 120th St., Surrey

While we were in Surrey, Ben decided to go for dessert at Krispy Kreme since we seldom patrol this area.

This is the only Krispy Kreme in Metro Vancouver.

Like all Krispy Kreme locations, customers can view the making of the donuts from a glass enclosed kitchen.

It’s always difficult to choose from so many varieties. I wished they have bite size samplers like the Tim Horton’s donut holes. Continue reading

Angel Cake House on Fraser St., Vancouver

Ben and I started our weekend ritual on a Friday evening. Ben usually picks me up from work and we will drive to some nearby neighbourhood for dinner.

For this Friday, we went to Angel Cake House for some comfort food.

Besides being a HongKong style restaurant, Angel Cake House also has a cake and dessert counter. We’ll see if we still have room for dessert after our dinner.

We ordered a House Special Chow Mien as we spotted our neighbour customer had some sort of chow mien which looks good. It did not disappoint as the chow mien was still crispy where the sauce has not soak into it. There were generous amount of assortment of meat on top of the noodles. Continue reading

Jack Frost Dessert Cafe on No. 3 Road, Richmond

It was a hot spring day. Ben treated me a cool desert on a pre mother’s day celebration.

We went to Jack Frost Dessert Cafe across Richmond Center on No. 3 Road.

We arrived around 6:00PM and there were only two other customers there. When we left, the restaurant is already full house.

We asked the server what is their popular item and he told us it’s the Tiramisu Snowfall. The bowl is topped with a slice of Tiramisu cake. It was good as it is not too sweet. Continue reading

Scorpio’s M Dessert on Alexandra Road, Richmond

Updated: 26 Jul 2017: This restaurant had been replaced by Miss Lina Crepe Cakes.

After dinner, we walked over to the Central at Garden City to do some exploration on what’s new there.

Then we returned to Alexandra Road to look for a dessert place. We ended up at Scorpio’s M Dessert which opens from 3PM to midnight.

The interior looks nice with the high back chairs.

Ben just wanted a drink from the thirstiness he experienced from Midam Cafe. He had a Mango Soda which he said helps to quench his thirst. Continue reading

Beard Papa’s on No. 3 Road

I had to send my car for maintenance on a Tuesday afternoon and had three hours to kill. Coincidentally, Polly called me up a day before to ask me if I wanted to go out for coffee. So, I made arrangement for Polly to pick me up from the automall after I dropped off my car. We went to Beard Papa’s on No. 3 Road for convenience as I can take the free shuttle back to automall from Richmond Center later.

We shared a couple of little cakes. The above is Mont Blanc which is a sponge cake iced with chestnuts cream. It is called Mont Blanc as it resembles a snow-capped mountain.

Leisure Tea & Coffee on Alexandra Road, Richmond

It’s been a while since Polly and I met up for cake meet due to her busy schedule. We found time to meet up and went to Leisure Tea & Coffee for a light lunch, more like a snack lunch.

Polly told me that this is a popular place for Taiwanese. Truely enough, a group of middle aged people came in for coffee at the later part of our meal and they spoke “Hokkien”/”Fujian”.

We had the Oriental Style Combo for 2 with 1 black coffee and 1 pot of tea for $26.25. For the tea, Polly selected the Passion Fruit and Pineapple Tea. It was very sweet and fragrant. We asked for a pot of hot water so that we can dilute the tea before drinking. Continue reading

Faubourg on West 41st, Vancouver

After the dim sum at Neptune Seafood Restaurant in Surrey, Polly and I went over to Burnaby as Polly had to run an errand there. On the way back to Richmond from Burnaby, Polly decided to go to Faubourg for tea break as she still had some time to kill before picking her daughters up from tuition after school.

Faubourgh is one of the best cake meet place that Polly and I enjoy. The little cakes are very pretty but quite costly.

We saw the above sign on the way in and smoothies is just perfect for a warm late spring afternoon.

We shared two desserts. The above was something green tea and passion fruit. It is $5.95. Continue reading

It was a beautiful time of the year. The cherry blossoms never fail to amaze me.

We walked from Costco to Ikea. It was a cloudy morning and the walk was very pleasant.

We stopped by the Ikea food court for coffee. I need my coffee fix since I did not have coffee for breakfast. Continue reading

Trees Organic Coffee in Gastown, Vancouver

After an early dinner at Hapa Izakaya, Polly, Whitney and I decided to move to Trees Organic Coffee in Gastown for dessert. It is quieter here to have a conversation.

We all had caffeine free mocha since it’s late in the evening already.

The three of us shared two slices of cheesecake. We were curious about the above cheesecake with the name “The Sin Cheesecake”. It is actually a regular cheesecake topped with marbled chocolate and there is cherry in it too.

IMG-20160113-WA0018

The Mocha Cheesecake was more softer than the Sin Cheesecake.

The bill came to $30.25. Credit card is accepted here.

It is always a treat to end a meal with the best cheesecake in Vancouver.
