Small portions but delicious cakes.

The place was empty when we entered but quickly filled up. We ordered a coconut cake. It was smaller than expected but delicious - layers of light fluffy sponge smothered in coconut custard and covered with vanilla icing and toasted coconut flakes. It was creamy but not overly sweet.

Great place for late night dessert. They have a really good selection of dessert and drinks. We were a bit disappointed that the patio doesn't stay open as long as the rest of the place. We ordered the Mocha Buttercream cake and the White Savannah cake. The dessert was very good, but the service was just average, we didn't mind... More

Took some friends for desserts and again we were pleasantly surprised at both the service and portions. Both were impeccable. But this is where the best part ends. Please DO NOT GO HERE, if you are calorie conscious and are watching your weight. The portions are big and all desserts look so tempting that you are unsure what you would... More

True confection is a nice place where you can enjoy a delicious dessert. In addition, the tea there is delicious. I recommend the fruit cheesecake with a cup of tea. You won't be dissapointed.

I had frequented True Confections many times in the past when I lived in Vancouver. It has been about 2 yrs since I last been there. Wow, have things ever change and not for the best. I brought with me some friends, who I raved about this restaurant and their desserts from my past times here. When we entered True... More

We went today since we hadn't gone in a year and what a disappointment!!! The cake slices are half of what they use to be, service was horrible!(very rude server), restaurant was dirty..for 9.00 per piece of cake- I'll go somewhere else.

There are a couple of locations for True Confections but the menu and desserts are very similar if not exactly the same. We enjoy their cheesecake and Strawberry Upside Down Cake (in season). The slices are huge and prices are fair. Good luck and enjoy!

I've been here many times as I find any cake extremely delicious. They are fairly pricey but the quality is worth every penny.

We used to come here all the time many many years ago. So thought it was time to bring my kids. What a let down. My banana cream pie was 1/3 the size of my sons choc cream pie. For mine I could have gone to Denny's and saved some coin. My other 2 had apple and blueberry pies. The... More
