Description: Tarts Bakery is Vancouver's first and only bakery specializing exclusively in tarts. Enjoy traditional favourites like rich butter tarts and tangy lemon tarts, or try something unique, like a raspberry macaroon tart or a savoury portobello mushroom tart. We make all of our tarts with a flaky, buttery crust and bake them from scratch with natural ingredients, because real Tarts never fake it.

“Original and delicious”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I've just moved in Vancouver and discovered this place while shopping on Broadway. It's a small but cosy bakery just across the street from Chapters at Granville, nicely decorated and with a couple of tables and chairs to enjoy your treat with a cup of coffee.

The original thing is that they sell exclusively tarts. The choice is surprisingly large, though, since they make both sweet and savoury tarts.
I tried the ham and cheese and my boyfriend, who's a vegetarian, had the feta, onions and sundried tomatoes tart. Both were delicious and fresh, and although we thought they looked kind of small, we were full once we were finished!
We also tasted the sweet tarts: I didn't know the classic Canadian butter tart, but I am a fan of their recipe! The fruit one is also very good, and if you like chocolate (who doesn't?), they make a tart filled with chocolate mousse.

Apparently, they make everything themselves (the pastry and the filling) and in small quantities. That's why they don't have always the same tarts and that also explains the prices, somewhat higher than what you would find in franchise stores.
