The Trees Organic Coffee Company recently opened an outlet in the 2600 block of Arbutus, a location at one time occupied by the Petit France cafe. Naturally we had to try it out and have visited twice. Their signature cake is cheesecake in a variety of flavours. Our observation is that the slices are too big—almost a meal in itself, especially if very sweet. Yet as far as cheesecakes are concerned, these are simply too dense. One would prefer a somewhat fluffier texture that dissolves in the mouth.
On our most recent visit I had a cheddar cheese scone. Let’s just say I like the scones at Terra Breads better since they are moister. If you want to be successful in Kitsilano, you must provide a high level of quality. This goes for their lattes as well. I had the Grande Latte. It contains two shots but needs three.
By and large we are not impressed by its offerings although we have only tried pastry type treats and coffees. They also have light lunch fare, but who needs another place providing the usual Paninis. Two stars out of five!
