Gorgeous food, shame about the rest

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... read 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

One of Richmonds treasures, with so much Asian food available in Richmond, it's a refreshing delight to have a wonderful authentic French Bakery in the heart of Steveston. From their amazing croissants to their exquisite pastries and deserts, coffee on the weekend wouldn't be the same without them. They also do equally wonderful savoury specialties like take away soups and... More

As another reviewer has mentioned, The Sweet Spot is not a full-service restaurant, it just has a few places to sit for a pastry or coffee. I started coming here after returning from France last summer and was craving authentic chocolate croissants and savoury pies. Both are amazing here! Display case is very pretty too. It's a little taste of... More
