Channel the Cookie Monster at these Vancouver bakeries

Cookies are the perfect treat if you want something sweet without the commitment of a whole dessert. In fact, they taste better when they’re not eaten after a meal. Enjoy a cookie anytime, with a coffee, a cup of tea or a friend. Here are the most scrumptious cookies you’ll find in cafés and bakeries around Vancouver.

Thomas Haas Patisserie

2539 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6K 2E9

The delicious handmade cookies at Thomas Haas may be overshadowed by their exquisite selection of chocolates, but the award-winning Chocolate Sparkles — delicious gluten-free chocolate truffle cookies — shine brightly. Pick some up at their Kitsilano or North Vancouver locations, or purchase their fresh cookie dough and bake them at home for fresh-from-the-oven goodness.

East Van Roasters

A social enterprise that provides training and employment for women living at the Rainier Hotel, East Van Roasters specializes in “bean-to-bar” chocolate as well as coffee that’s roasted on site. Order a coffee and enjoy it with the chewy chocolate chip cookie, made at the Faubourg Bakery with East Van’s very own Madagascar chocolate.


51 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1G4

Acme’s menu is full of comfort food, from mac n’ cheese to roast beef sandwiches and soups, but nothing says comfort like their homemade cookies. All their baked goods are made in-house and change on a daily basis. Whatever the option, their cookies are sure to add a touch of sweetness to your day.

Tartine Bread & Pies

770 Beach Ave, Vancouver, BC V6Z 3E2

…and cookies! While the bread and pies get all the attention, Tartine’s lovingly made creative cookies are not to be overlooked. The options change on a daily basis at this West End bakery and caterer, but you can be assured that the cookies are filled with buttery goodness.

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

2150 Fir St, Vancouver, BC V6J 3B5

The Valrhona Chocolate Chip cookie belongs on any “best of” list. Chewy, gooey and loaded with chocolate, this is a cookie that’s not to be missed. Beaucoup is a French-inspired bakery that aims to make the world a better place one cookie at a time. If our taste buds are any indication, they're doing a good job.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
