decadent desserts and great teas

Rich but delicious. We had double and triple chocolate mousse and caramel walnut mousse. All great. They have several gluten free desserts. You can not tell the difference. A really nice treat.

We have been riding past this place for years and finally stopped in. Yummy! We had New York Cheesecake with blueberries and Hedgehog (hazelnut) Cake with chocolate sauce. The cheesecake was the perfect density and flavor combination. You could savor it. The combination of the chocolate sauce with the hedgehog cake definitely improved it (otherwise, even though I am a... More

I am not a huge cheesecake fan but this is without a doubt the best I have ever eaten. It is a small bakery that offers a huge selection of cakes and pastries. It is a tiny place with only a handful of tables and chairs but "treats" are worth every minute of the wait. (It will take you that... More

Friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Would have liked more choice of pastries with lower cream content but the choice was amazing and the Danish pastry that I had was great.

Just landed in Vancouver after one of those _killer_ flights (22 hours) from Australia. Sweet Obsessions seemed like the ideal location for some catch-up with an old ex-UBC pal from the 80s. We weren't disappointed, either with our snacks, or the prices. Our coffees (cappuccino, latte) were excellent, too. Service was friendly, competent and professional. Great to be back in... More

This is a very little shop with limited seating places. By luck, we got a space and enjoyed our time :) good cappuccino with biscotti and the best part - their cakes and pastries! So yumm... We tried Mocha Dacquoise, it was just awesome! They have the big cakes for almost all small pastries.

If you need a break for a sweet treat, then this is the place! The pastries are fantastic! The muffins are scrumptious! The coffees are fine, but it is the dessert that you will be craving! A nice little cafe, although it can be busy! That's because the neighborhood knows the secret! Well worth a visit! And if you need... More

The cakes are great - the service is the worst in the world. Slow counter staff that often serve the person behind you before they serve you. They seem to pass over new customers to serve their favourites out of order. When my mum complained about this one of their charming staff honked at us (while driving off in their... More

Even better than those my mother used to make - and a large assortment of other yummy stuff like florentines, biscotti and cakes galore. Lunch soups scrumptious too.
