L’Éclair de Génie Vancouver Opening

Vancouver now has its very own L’Éclair de Génie boutique and I couldn’t be happier!!  I first tried eclairs from L’Éclair de Génie on a family trip to Paris and fell in love.  They are presented artistically and each and everyone of them were so beautiful that it was actually hard for us to choose just […]

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery - Austin's Big Pupcake

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery

It was my pup Tormund’s (as in Tormund Giantsbane…you know??  Game of Thrones??) 2nd birthday yesterday and I splurged on a doggy birthday cupcake for him this year.  I’m not a pet spoiler and I don’t usually give him treats so this was special for both him and I. I went to a local pet […]

Cake’Ya

I forgot where I read about Cake’Ya.  It’s a tiny little operation located in Port Moody that makes a small selection of Japanese (Okinawan) goodies.  Small selection but each type of goody comes in an assortment of flavors. Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]

Citrus Tart @ Beaucoup Bakery

On my last girl date with TDog, we made a trip down to Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe so TDog could try out their pastries too.  A good thing about Beaucoup is that they come out with seasonal limited edition pastries to keep things interesting. This time around, to give us a taste of summer which […]

Solly’s Bagelry (W 7th Ave. location)

Wendy and I were looking for a quick snack around Broadway and Cambie, and Solly’s Bagelry looked like it fit the bill. Once inside things got a bit more interesting, as we could see that Solly’s wasn’t just a bagel place, but a full Jewish bakery.  As the sign says, they carry babka but we […]

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

I’ve heard a lot about Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe, especially in magazines.  However it wasn’t until recently when GRock’s friend started working there as a baker that I’ve succumbed to lots more praises and recommendations from GRock. The final nail in the coffin was when GRock showed me a picture of this magical looking poached […]

Hot Chocolates & CakeBread Bakery

Cold winter weather always calls for a nice, cozy cup of hot chocolate don’t you agree? We took a short trip to the island, and while it wasn’t exactly wintery weather, it was still mighty cold. So Hitman took me to a place in downtown Courtenay called Hot Chocolates for…wait for it….Hot Chocolate!! Now Hot […]

Wannawafel

I went to a congress in Victoria for work.  Yep.  Victoria.  Actually, it was Sidney.  Even worse.  I asked around beforehand about where to go to eat, and a fun place called Wannawafel came up.  It was located in downtown Victoria.  And they serve waffles.  So my roommate SheShe and I decided we were going […]
