Calhoun’s Bakery Cafe

Continuing with the blueberry theme, on the same night we had dinner at Swiss Chalet, I urbanspooned to see what dessert places were close by.  Calhoun’s Bakery Cafe was a few blocks down so I decided on there. It was a bit of a wet and drippy evening that day.  However it was a short […]

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels

The second post regarding our day-trip to Washington State is a short one.  Wendy introduced it to me a while back when we first went to the Chelsea Premium Outlet together.  Auntie Anne’s is a great pretzel place that you will often find in many American malls. When we walked in, we were rushed by […]

Little Monk Pretzels

Update: This restaurant has closed or moved. I’ve always loved soft pretzels.  I remember many, many years ago at Lansdowne Mall there was a small pretzel place that sells pretzel sticks with cheddar cheese dipping sauce.  It was so good.  It has shut down many years ago and I could only go to Metrotown to […]

Max’s Bakery & Delicatessen

Today was a sort of family day. Dad was getting cataract surgery done at VGH so Mom and I drove him down there. When we dropped him off, we had about an hour to kill, so we thought of going somewhere. There really isn’t much around the W. Broadway/Oak area, so it took us quite […]

Berry Good Cafe

“Berry Good…it was…Very Good!” – Boyfriend That was how he suggested I start this post.  Anyways, feeling like dessert one night, I looked around Urbanspoon and Dinehere to see what dessert places are located in Richmond.  Berry Good got pretty positive reviews from most everyone that reviewed. So naturally I decided that Boyfriend would accompany […]

Le Panier – Very French Bakery

I went down to Seattle with a co-worker for a one day trip since she had always wanted to go to The Crab Pot.  We were able to fit a lot of shopping into the day and when we arrived at The Crab Pot, it was a bit too early for dinner so we decided […]

Macarons by Saint Germain Bakery

Went shopping at Metrotown and walked by the Saint Germain Bakery.  The colorful macarons in their fridge caught my eye, and since I’ve had quite a bit during my cruise, I was eager to try them. Pretty aren’t they?  From left they are Lemon, Strawberry and Pistachio. Texture-wise, these were quite a bit thicker than […]

Le Bonbon Cheesecake Cafe

Update Oct 13, 2009: This shop has since closed down 🙁 Le Bonbon Cafe is my current favorite bakery to get cheesecake from.  The owner bakes the cheesecakes herself and it is one of the most flavorful cheesecakes I’ve ever tasted, even better than Cheesecake, Etc. Boyfriend bought me three slices as a surprise.  A […]
