Not for the calorie conscious and weight watchers.

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.

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

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.
