very fine European pastries

It's not a restaurant of course but a small pastry shop. Really very good, carefully made pastries: macaroons a big hit.

I love desserts and I searched for this place in Steveston and it didn't disappoint. Their pastries are to die for. The only thing is I came in the afternoon and there are only few selections left but that didn't discourage me. Just don't expect any tables because they are just a cute little shop, no washroom as well. Nevertheless,... More

This is about the best bakery I've been to in B.C., and I've been to lots. Its like stepping into a little slice of Paris. The last delight I enjoyed there was a chocolate mouse in a funky little askew square container. On top of the mouse where five (5!) different distinct toppings that could be enjoyed individually with each... More

Loved this cute little pastry shop; it oozes potential. I've gone by a number of times and indulged and am rarely disappointed. But the part that gets me is the total lack of attention to the customer. The mouth-watering baked goods sell themselves, but don't ask for a bowl of soup you can enjoy in, or even a comfortable menu... More

Calling this a mere "bakery" doesnt do it justice, a patisserie is more suited. The Sweet Spot has some of the best selection of desserts I have found in Richmond. The Black Forest cake is one of my favourites as is the Pear/Peach Frangipane. If youre lucky enough to come in and see the Pavlova, dont hesitate because if Im... More

It is not often any of us pick up a treat at The Sweet Spot. For one thing, it is very expensive. But more concerning is that we would become addicted to the amazing baked goods and gain a pile of weight! Our main addiction are the amazing macaroons. Oh wow! Ooey and gooey and loaded with coconut and browned... More

Should you want ice cream that tastes like ice cream. This is the place to go. They make it in small batches right in the shop. The last two I tried were strawberry cream and caramel. Absolutely delicious 🍦 the flavours change with the seasons as we had egg nog at Christmas and pumpkin for Halloween. The price is reasonable... More

There is nothing in this patisserie that is not top quality. Be prepared to work extra hard at the gym so you can indulge.

Excellent pastries.... the only challenge is which heavenly taste to pick this time (there will always be a next time, though...) I especially love the lemon tarts...oh, and also banana caramel, and... and... sigh...time for another visit... :)

Once again they outdid themselves. Mini quiches,sausage rolls lemon tarts glueten free cookies I could go on and on. But the best of all was instead of a Halloween cake Kirsten suggested pumpkin pie. Simply the best idea and the best pie ever. From my 21 month old grandson to my 73 year old husband and everyone in between we... More
