Description: Inspired and imagined by Jo-Ann, the bakery is simply an extension of her love for people and food. Muffins, breads, tarts and treats. Our menu is full of variety. We cater lunch functions with hearty sandwiches, soups, salads and pastries. Simple, not to be reproduced, this bakery is as unique as its setting just off English Bay. Started out of her own kitchen, Jo-Ann's aim is easily detected: she simply wants you to adore her baking. And you will.

Different selection of sandwiches every day, plus soup and pies to die for! Eat on the patio or inside, plus sodas, tea & coffee.

We were staying on Granville Island for a week and made a point to visit Tartine to stuff ourselves of its pies and sandwiches. They have a wide selection of sandwiches, we had a turkey sandwich which had cranberry sauce, gravy mayonaisse and lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers on multi grain bread. We always started off vowing to be healthy and grab just a nutritious sandwich. But the pies, tarts and cookies are too good to resist. We always end up finishing our meal off with pie.

While hanging out and becoming regulars at the cafe for the time we were there, we got to know the locals. It seemed like everyone knew the owner, Joanne, on a first name basis. She was extremely pleasant and made us feel at home. It has true neighbourhood spirit, and it's right on the beach.

One downside is that it doesn't really seat that many people. I say, grab your stuff to go and take a walk to the beach. Find a place on the sand and enjoy.

Based on three takeouts, I can enthusiastically recommend the sandwiches and cookies from Tartine. The staff are friendly and helpful, and they even gave me a pastry shortly before closing time. Now, that's customer friendly. This is a great place to pick up lunch to take down to the park along the sea wall.

Service can be offhand? Delicious tarts, sandwiches too at reasonable prices. Has lost some of its neighbourhood lustre lately. Too bad

We live in the same building as Tartine and it is a dangerous combination.

It's a great little cafe. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the food is great quality. Someone they produce a wide range of pies, from the decadent (chocolate pecan) to simply delicious (rhubarb and cream) and we have never had a bad pie from them.

Baked goods are excellent as well, from the bread to the croissants (possibly the best I have had in vancouver - certainly on a par with Thomas Hass). Sometimes they make a croq Monsieur which is big enough to fill you up for the day.

Lunch they have a range of sandwhiches made fresh to order and soups (no idea if they make those, though).

Overall it's a great find and surprisingly popular considering it's slightly off the beaten track. But well worth the visit.

It's just a shame that TripAdvisor failed to list them in Vancouver, as that is where they are, rather then in Victoria on Vancouver Island, which is where they are not.
