“Best cafe in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

I am going to this cafe almost every week. They have one of the best deserts in Vancouver with reasonable pricing. If you want to take someone for the first date it is a place to go.

“Amazing Cakes & Macarons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

What a great cafe on Alberni Street, probably some of the best and most flavourful macarons and cakes we've tried. We picked up a box of 7 macarons (tried all the flavours...but our faves were: raspberry, mint, orange, and cassis), an individual Passionfruit cake, and an individual Chocolate Trio cake. All simply divine, fresh and tasty. The atmosphere was nice, and the staff were very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back!

“Absurdly Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

The very best liquid chocolate we have ever had. We were there during the hot chocolate festival and this place was hands down the best in the city, maybe even North America. Tried the Kayambe 72%, Basque chilli, house blend, a custom combo of dark chocolate with hazelnut and the festival feature "ONE IN A MILLION". We were there 4 days and at Thierry's twice a day! The tiramisu was fabulous!

“Saturday afternoon coffee and snack”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

A very nice location with outdoor seating - great in good weather and just to people watch. The service and selection of desserts were great, not overly sweet but just right flavoring and sweetness. Staff were friendly and though it was busy got the orders right as they were preparing orders for pick up and eating in. Good quality coffee and tea also.
Only downside was a customer came in carrying a dog! it's tail wagging all over the place and contacting the packaged cookies etc. ..... it put a few people off. The server did remind the customer politely that no dogs are allowed (should go without saying where food is being served). But he allowed her to stay and advised her for the next time. If the customer had been ahead of us i would have walked out.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

This place is so amazing I went there twice! We sampled a couple chocolates and french macarons and fell in love. Their menu has a little something for everyone. We had never tried french macarons and found that we LOVE them. These treasures are made right on sight and so incrediable. The staff is very helpful and will take the time to explain what many of the selections include and direct you to items by asking about your taste or style.
My next visit I had a glass of wine and a savarin cake (dark rum soaked brioche + fresh seasonal fruit + whipped cream). WOW what a treat and so glad I don't have one here at home, there would be no way I could resist!
