Great service and great cakes. If you buy more, they won't charge you for the taxes. My favorite one was the red bean paste donut (picture)

If the only thing you order are the apple tarts, you will be happy, but they have so much more to offer. They know how to do sticky buns, and rice noodles. Flavors, sauces, hot tea and friendly folks!!

This is the place to go in Vancouver Chinatown if you want buns! Delicious steamed buns and baked pork buns. They also have some delicious apple buns. There was a line, but it moved very quickly.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
