“Best Croissant ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I frequent Thomas Haas for their chocolate and read a review that they have the best croissants in the city. Absolutely agree, I raved about the croissants when we visited Paris and these are comparable. Very flaky not bread like or doughy. Will return for more.

“Great Coffee Event Better Pastries and Chocolates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The first time we experienced Thomas Haas there was only one location in North Vancouver. We had to take the water bus from downtown to North Van. And we walked for almost an hour asking for directions along the way. The Cafe was hidden away amongst factories, warehouses, and a high school. But it was worth every minute of our trek. We had wonderful sandwiches for lunch but the pastries and chocolates took me back to the days I lived in Vienna. No exaggeration.
Imagine how pleased we were to discover Thomas Haas had opened a cafe at 2539 Broadway in the Kitsilano area. Easy to reach and just as delicious. Go for a breakfast of cafe latte and a crispy croissant, for lunch enjoy a sandwich and dessert, or for an afternoon snack of chocolates with too many choices to list here. By the way, we found Thomas Haas chocolates available at Urban Fair grocery stores.
This is a no brainer must visit. WARNING, the cafe is closed Sundays and Mondays don't be disappointed. But if you are lucky to might even run into Thomas Haas.

“Try their double baked croissants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Huge lineup and it's impossible to get a table. My friends and I sat outside, squeezed into a tiny table. I bought a box of chocolates because my friends told me Thomas Haas supply their chocolates to the White House/the Obama family. Their chocolates were good but I think their double baked chocolate croissants are better. Their hot chocolate is also amazing - it's the real stuff with real cocoa, not the cheap powder crap.

“Good desserts but very crowded!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Heard of thomas hass as he is the best pastry chef in the city! Yes it's true the deserts are amazing and same with the coffee. The downer is that there is always a huge line up to order and ver few tables to sit and enjoy your deserts and if u do get a table your surrounded by a huge line up by the door. Other then that if its a nice sunny day and u go early get yourself a table outside and you will enjoy the experience much better then to feel like your in a high school cafeteria.
