“Review for park royal location”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

The atmosphere here is chic and chic. I was expecting the pastries and drinks to be delicious but they were not. The almond croissant was alright but I get better tasting ones at IGA for half the price. My hot chocolate tasted like hot water. It's made much better at Starbucks again for a lower fee. For 3.90$ for a tall I expected it to actually taste like hot chocolate it didnt even taste like there was chocolate in it.

I won't be back only good thing I have to say other than the beautiful decor is the staff are very lovely there.

Dear Canadiatravelgoddess,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad that you found our decor beautiful and that our staff was lovely to you. However, we are really sorry to hear that didn't appreciate our food and drinks. We take proud in the quality and freshness of our products (our viennoiseries are homemade and baked 5 times a day at all three locations) and it is always hard to hear when we fell short on customers expectations.

Sincerely,
Team Faubourg

“So Good It's Addictive”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I routinely stop here on my walk to work for tea or coffee with my partner. Often I'll get a couple macaron to feed my addiction or a Pain aux raisins for breakfast.

The macaron are some of the best in the city and my favourite, their tea is from France and the ones I've had are delicate and flavourful without being overwhelming like some brands can be.

Take your friends, take your family, it's a great place to get a snack or a treat and enjoy the patio. I recommend going on a weekday morning in the spring/summer as that's when that area is alive with people walking to work and you can sit on the patio and people watch without a lot of traffic noise.

“Great place for a delicious coffee and pastry”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Love the chandeliers and reproduction posters mixed in with modern decor. Cafe latte was perfect and went well with my brioche.

“Truly scrumptious!!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

If you're looking for a damn good cup of coffee and the most delicious pastries you've ever tasted (outside of France), this is the place for you. They have magically created a croissant-pudding concoction that melts in your mouth and will have you on the treadmill for a week so that you can order another. Simply divine! And the decor is stunning.

“A little taste of Paris”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

I love Paris. I love this place. They have recreated that feeling you have in a modern Parisian cafe.

Coffee was nice. Had a wide selection of beautiful pastries and desserts. Macarons seemed to be popular. I have never really loved them but they looked as good as any I've seen.

It was nice to see the owner running the till. Gave the whole experience that much more authenticity.

Will go back next time I'm in Vancouver. This review is for the Kerrisdale location.
