With temperatures below freezing under sunny skies we walked the Seawall. We earned a treat and we searched the area for French pastry and coffee. We must have looked lost because a local stopped us and asked what we were looking for. When we told her a bakery her eyes lit up and she directed us to "True Confections". She... More

While there are lots of desserts to choose from, I don't think I'll be back. I've been twice and a little disappointed both times. The cake is good, but not great. The service is terribly slow-it took almost 15 minutes to hand us 2 slices of (pre-sliced) cake and some water while the restaurant was only half full. I love... More

This place has such an assortment of cakes, pies, coffees, teas...it was hard to choose. At the end of a long ordeal of trying to choose, we had the waiter choose. And he chose exactly the right thing for us....great place.

Live a few blocks away and dine on denman often. Stopped by tonight to fulfill a sweet tooth after dinner. No carrot cake tonight so chose something else. I watched the table service deliver a nice portion of every order. When it came time to box our order it was a one inch slice of cake. I was taken back... More

A nice, quaint neighborhood confection shop. It is in walking distance of downtown and just a couple blocks from Stanley Park. The desserts are fresh and tastey and the service was friendly.

I guess, because I had been told so much about this place that my expectations were really high. This place is not 'life-changing' - as I had been told. The hot choclate was Luke warm at its best. It looked really wow. But that is where the 'good' stopped. I sampled two cakes - and for both I felt it... More

We went here twice on our stay in Vancouver. We were served by the same waiter both times and he was very friendly and helpful. As I am allergic to nuts I sadly couldn't sample the desserts, so I had a herbal tea the first time and a cherry soda the second time and they were both nice. My husband... More

We went here a couple of times during our stay. It was close to our B&B (Barclay House) and satisfied our need for decaf cappuccinos and dessert. We split one piece of cake between me and my husband...the pieces were quite generous (as they should be for $8.75 a piece). The tiramisu was way too creamy for my taste and... More
