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.

This one stop place has everything you need for entertaining! Their desserts are to die for, and their pastries and beverages also yum! During the festive season, they offer all types of condiments and gifts for your dinners and parties. Great for picking up last minute things that you forgot en route to a soiree.....

A friend took me to this place one night and now has become our go to spot for dessert. Wonderful selection of cakes and tarts and other yummy treats. There is a small area to eat and enjoy. However, it can be quite busy some times that you might as well get a piece to go instead. If you do... More

Great cakes, sold by the slice or whole (2 sizes, depending on #ppl serving). Have always picked up a slice, typically 2, to-go. It always crowded on weekend or summer evenings and seems too cramped. Have bought larger size cakes (Coconut Chiffon, Fruit Tarts) for special occasions and the staff are great about having it all ready for pick up... More

This bakery/cafe offers excellent food. There are a wide variety of cakes, fruit tarts and all kinds of baked items. We had our wedding cake made there and it was delicious (white chocolate raspberry mousse). Always a crowd pleaser when you're wanting to bring a cake to work or to a special event. We've often got cakes here for birthdays... More
