Loved the cappuccino & the Croissant. Went back again the next morning and had the Almond Croissant. Everything looked great.

The macarons are really to die for. And the sandwiches are lovely. It was just really, really noisy inside. You can sit outside if you're lucky enough to find a spare table but it's no less quieter. But really - go. If just for the salty caramel macarons.

Unique place with tasty pastries that are so good. The macaroons were delicious and the Napoleons were even better. The selection of goodies make it very difficult to decide what to try . Everything looks like the perfect treat. What we purchased certainly fit that description. There is some outdoor seating which lends to making this a perfect stop. Can... More

Met a former colleague there for coffee, great selection of house made pastry and wonderful coffee selection. Good indoor and outdoor seating and good staff. A nice break from the chain coffee places that tend to dominate Vancouver.

Macarons and cakes galore, and nicely presented, too! I don't consider myself having a sweet tooth but this would be the place for me to get a sugar fix. The pastries I tried were not too sweet. Stylish place with wonderful ambiance, perfect for a chat with friends.

Bought macaroons, cookies, ganach chocolates and salted caramels. The chocolate ganach was good, but a little bitter. The hazelnut cookies were good, but I have had better. The macaroons were excellent and so we're the salted caramels.

We did not eat at this cafe, but we purchased several pastries to go. The selection of macarons is good; I especially liked the lycee marcaron. Cakes were delicious and of excellent quality. I was surprised that the prices were reasonable. Close and convenient to several downtown hotels for those needing a sugar fix.

We bought a dozen macarons and could not find a place to sit on the patio. The inside was quite packed but we found a table near the window. Not sure how to put this delicately, but it smelled of body odour at our table which really grossed me out. Perhaps not the bakery's fault but something like that really... More

We went on a Sunday and it was very busy. The staff was a little indifferent. The chocolates and pastries were beautiful to look at. We had an espresso and a small chocolate cake. Both were very good.

If you are tired of IKTOGO next door they offer delish soup and tasty sandwiches. The soup is seasonal but always so tasty! Here it is slightly higher than your average cost for soup and sandwich but has never disappointed.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
