The Finest Pastries in Richmond... light, French, delicate, exquisite

I've eaten my way through Sweet Spot's cookies, pastries, and croissants... each one small, with *just* enough sugar to enhance the taste of almonds, or coconuts, or cream cheese, or oranges... my mouth is watering just from writing this. Their sandwiches come on my date-picnics. I grew up with... read more

the miniature lemon meringues and fruit flans were delicious and well priced. The service was cold and the place smelled of burnt crust. Not a great first impression.

Sweet Spot has the best dessert in Steveston, and maybe in Richmond. My family only tried half of their desserts so far, and every single one is good! Although it is a bit pricey, you won't be disappointed.

This little pastry shop is filled with goodies to fulfill and satisfy your cravings for a sweet and/or savory. First time I saw this shop was just by accident. At that time, I only bought some brioche to take home. Once I tasted the brioche with my coffee, I regretted that I only bought 2 cause they were so good.... More

This little shop is within walking distance of my house. It is the best patisserie by far in our area. The selection is not huge, but the quality is first class. Home made soups, ice creams are available to take home and there is a small seating area for grabbing a quick cuppa. It truly adds to the unique quality... More

always a high quality product--and so much more than just gorgeous delicious desserts. They make their own soups, ice-cream , sandwiches and salad plates. First rate!

I've bought desserts from Sweet Spot for several dinners and each time I've gotten the same response. OMG this is absolutely to die for and have become Sweet Spot customers too. You won't regret stopping here for a little something sweet or savoury.

It's not a restaurant of course but a small pastry shop. Really very good, carefully made pastries: macaroons a big hit. But as another reviewer has said, tends to sell out, and it's very disappointing to go in (say, for macaroons) and see the person just in front of you getting served the final macaroons of the day.

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
