Forever a sweet tooth at heart, I have a continuously growing list of sweet spots in Vancouver to get my sugar fix. The city is home to so many incredible bakeries and decadent dessert places; so if you love your sugar as much as I do, be sure to keep the following locations on your must-visit list!


1433 Pender St W, Vancouver, BC V6G 2S3

If you’re a macron fan, then you can’t miss out on Soirette Macaron & Tea! With an ever-changing menu to fit the season and holidays, Soirette is sure to indulge your sweetest cravings. This quaint little shop has a charming teahouse feel to it, making it a great location for a cup of tea with friends or a quiet spot to visit when you want to treat yourself. Be sure to stop in over the holidays to try their eggnog macaron – it’s delicious!

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

2150 Fir St, Vancouver, BC V6J 3B5

This French inspired pâtisserie in Fairview is a great spot to stop in for coffee and treats. Bring your laptop and stay a while to fully enjoy their unique and light-hearted bakery-meets-café atmosphere. Friendly staff, an unpretentious environment and delicious baked goods make Beacoup Bakery a local gem to keep on your must-try list.

Nero Belgian Waffle Bar

1703 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6G 1C9

Who doesn’t love sugar for breakfast? If you’re looking for a new yummy brunch spot to try, you’ll want to head to Nero Belgian Waffle Bar on Robson. Their yummy Brussels- and Liege-style waffles are sure to satisfy your sweet cravings. The waffles here come with delicious and decadent toppings such as vanilla ice cream or espresso-infused whipped cream. If you’re looking for something with a vibrant citrus flavour, try the orange mousse topping with fresh-cut orange segments and Belgian dark chocolate mousse.

Cloud 9 Specialty Bakery

1025 Royal Ave, New Westminster, BC V3M 1K3

Even if you’re not in the heart of Vancouver, there are still tons of yummy bakeshops around you; Cloud 9 bakery in New West is definitely one to keep on your radar. This bakery specializes in gluten-free treats, making it a great spot for those with dietary restrictions. Their gourmet vanilla and chocolate cupcakes are beyond delicious and come topped with various different naturally flavoured butter-cream icing options – I highly recommend the pistachio.

Earnest Ice Cream

3992 Fraser St, Vancouver, BC V5V 4E4

The best ice cream in town in my opinion, Earnest Ice Cream offers an array of unique and indulging flavours for dessert fans. Adding their signature artisanal twist to classic ice cream flavours, Earnest elevates the basics and turns them into something special. My personal favourite is lemon poppy seed.

Cartem's Donuterie

534 Pender St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1V3

If you haven’t heard of Cartems Donuterie, well you may be the only one. These gourmet doughnuts are considered to be among the best in the city. The modern atmosphere, delicious treats and friendly staff will make this Pender Street café a spot you’ll want to frequent again and again. Inventive doughnut flavours include Canadian whiskey bacon, Earl Grey, and salted caramel.

Aquilini Thierry Ltd

1059 Alberni St, Vancouver, BC V6E 1A1

Alluringly good chocolates, macarons, and pastries make Thierry one of the best places in Vancouver to get your sugar fix. Their pretty pastel-coloured macarons are just one of the items that I can’t help but indulge in from time to time. I dare you to walk by Thierry without feeling the draw to stop in and treat yourself.

Lucky's Doughnuts

2902 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5T 3G3

Lucky’s Doughnuts has long been known as one of Vancouver’s best doughnuts shops. You’ll find tempting display cases filled with their signature mouth-watering goodies tucked away inside the 49th Parallel locations in Kits and on Main Street. The doughnut menu features elevated takes on the classics (think PB&J and the ultimate old fashioned glazed), while also providing unique and seasonal flavours for the more adventurous at heart.

When you’re just not ready for your date night to end, it can be a challenge to know what exactly to do next. Rather than simply head home, take your special someone to indulge in their sweet tooth at one of these yummy dessert spots in Vancouver. [Image courtesy of Thierry; photo credit: Leila Kwok]
If there’s one thing my fiancé and I indulge in a bit too often, it’s dining out. But along with this expensive little habit, I’ve gained some knowledge about the city’s most romantic restaurants. While we are always looking for hidden gems, we’ve also been lucky enough to try incredibly delicious food at some of Vancouver’s most beautiful dining destinations. Keep these local spots in mind for your next date night.
As a blogger, I’m often trying to uncover quick lunch spots where I can meet with fellow bloggers and potential collaborators. I like to find restaurants that balance great food with friendly service and a unique atmosphere. I’ve always felt that places with a unique flair and interesting touches help encourage creativity, which is essential in the fashion industry.
