This is a pretty cute little place with a selection of desserts. I decided to try the apple cinnamon and chocolate caramel macaroons. They were very good! I preferred the chocolate caramel but both were good. I would try more flavours. It was busy when we came but the outdoor seating was nice and the heaters were useful.

A very busy place and it is difficult to find a table or a seat after you get your order. The selections are good but very sweet. Good coffee!

We stopped in for a quick chocolate fix after a walk along the sea wall. The drink was great - not too sweet which is just the way we like it.

In the middle of the shopping area with constant throughput so you can always find a seat in or outside. The outside is better in the summer.

Wow....was just here and I had to write this review ASAP because the service was atrocious. It is not imaginative to hire attractive, young staff (mostly students) because they are a cheap source of labour and easily replaceable but please train them on what customer service means. It does not mean you stand around talking to each other while a... More

We popped in to try The Taste of Vietnam and it did not disappoint. It was busy as always (both inside and out) and a feast for the senses. Service was quick and courteous. Hope to be back to try their next Hot Chocolate Festival selection starting next week...Peru.

A quick trip into Thierry reminded me of popping into a patisserie in Paris. Grabbed a fantastic Latte and a couple of macaroons and sat on the patio in a world of my own. It was quite loud for a cafe, but all kinds of people doing the same thing as me. In the heart of luxury shopping and restaurant... More

Good place for pastries and desserts. The place was full.. but I only wanted to buy some stuff for my friends. I selected the pain du chocolate .. a chocolate croissant. My friends loved them!

Put on the calories here with pleasure (if you can find a seat). Wide selection of pastries (large portions), macarons, croissants etc with tea, coffee, a glass of wine or prosecco. IN the morning there's a newspaper or two. We learned to buy one pastry for 2. Cookies are really tasty. I just wish there were more seats!

Early morning, downtown is just waking, and the master pastry chef, and his staff, are creating pastries that when you dream of light, rich, perfect, melt in your mouth croissants, are waiting for you. A simple pot of jam, and a delightful Americano, is the way to meet the day. Excellent balanced espresso, nice acidity, no harshness, but a rich... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
