    I came by this blog after reading some reviews of Soirette.

    Have you tried Cartems Donuterie in gastown? Its on Hastings and Carrel. I’ve been meaning to try it but haven’t had the time. Let me know if its any good!

    • I actually just heard about them recently. I will try as soon as I get my butt in Gastown. It looks delicious though!!

      • mark

        ok finally tried it. really good.. they make their donuts in batches, line ups are long, and you need to get there a few mins before opening (10am)

        I tried a bit of everything and i’d say carrot cake has the best texture (crunchy exterior), but earl grey has the best taste (subtle and make sure you drink water if you sampled other flavors)

      • MMHMMM!!!!! I haven’t got a chance to try it because every time I come they’re either done for the day or closed :(!!! I will make it a mission to come early in the morning

  2. iggyo

    Cloud 9 Specialty Bakery in New West! THE best gluten free stuff in the city!

  3. godzilla

    You should try Pho Tam (behind the Safeway @104/King George). Make sure you go into the correct Pho restaurant. There are 2 in the small plaza. My favourite place on this side of the river.

    • @godzilla not really a fan of Pho Tam. Use to be years back. I feel like their audience are a bit on the non-vietnamese side. Nothing wrong with that, I guess different expectations?

  4. Cartems Donuterie is absolutely delicious!!
    If you have ever tried Voodoo Donuts in Portland, you will fall in love with the neighbour best kept donut secret.
    Try the earl grey donut… NOM!!!

  5. Steffi

    Have you tried CC violin patisserie in west van yet? They have THE most amazing little cakes and Sandwiches

  6. Steve

    Have you ever heard of the Nero Belgian Waffle Bar? I heard its amazing but I’m waiting for a friend to finish exams before I go.

  7. Jason brown

    will not say they are good but have you tried East Van Roasters? noticed you like hot chocolate and some other items possibly with chocolate. personally I can never seem to get there when they are open and i live across the street!

  8. Steve

    I heard the Spud Shack at New Westminster skytrain is really good. My friend had a pulled pork poutine and it looked very legit
