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 […]

Cookies of Course

Update: This business is now a delivery-only service with no storefront. I’ve recently joined a bunch of those “Daily Deal” sites and I must say, I was skeptic at first but it’s been treating me pretty well.  They are usually very good deals and the coupon for Cookies of Course was one of my first […]

Manzano European Bakery

One of Boyfriend’s favorite places to eat at Metrotown when working is a little bakery called Manzano. The usual suspects are here, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, pastries, etc.  Aside from those, they also bake specialty breads and makes sandwiches from scratch.  That’s what Boyfriend likes to get but they’re a bit pricey…$6 each approximately. Well I […]

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 […]
