Expect to be overwhelmed with lots and lots of pies and cakes. It doesn’t stop there because the portions are large and each of our choices was very good. The only problem you will have is which one to pick. Regardless, if your sweet tooth is in need, you can’t go wrong.

I had them slice up two pieces of Berry Pie only to discover the owner does not want "anything American" American Express - including cash. I wasn't sure how to take it. I searched my purse for some Canadian money, but all I had was American. The gal at the counter exchanged it out of her own pocket and she... More

Portions for the fruit cheesecake was extremely small. I paid $7 for a sliver of cheesecake. Very disappointed.

Finally went into True Confections to take a closer look at the monstrous cakes. First visit had the tall Cafe Mocha cake ... Thinner cut but the icing and cake looked amazing. First bite underwhelming ... Scoop of just the icing was good but not fantastic as icing should sing ... Ate most but couldn't finish, not due to size... More

From cheesecakes to 12" tall cakes to pies, your sweet tooth will be sated. Our table of 6 shared 4 different desserts - chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, chocolate caramel cheesecake, blueberry cheesecake and dark chocolate hazelnut mousse case. After a taste test, the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake but everyone loved their choice. The desserts were so rich we needed milk... More

From the outside this place didn't look that good. They have a good range of cakes. Portions are very generous. The coffee good. Service a little slow. I would recommend this place

We had just finished dinner at Dinesty and chose to have our dessert around the corner at True Confections. We had not been there before, but were advised that this was the place to have dessert and that advice proved correct. The evening was perfect for outside seating. Our server was friendly and helpful. My wife had a chocolate raspberry... More

So many home baked cakes and pastries to choose from. This is one place you must make time for when you visit Vancouver. We went once on an afternoon and then once on an evening after our meal as the sweets here are so much better!!!

My husband and I were looking for a sweet something after dinner and had no idea how perfect a True Confections would be. Our waitress was lovely. The atmosphere was ambient, sophisticated, and the desserts were worth every penny. We don't often eat dessert, so when we do, we like it to be special. You will not be disappointed! We... More

Desserts look delicious at this dessert restaurant on Denman St in Vancouver's West End neighborhood. Taste didn't quite measure up. Teas & coffees on the menu. Friendly waiter & good service, though.
