Sweet spots to satisfy your brownie cravings in Vancouver

Got a hankering for the ooey-gooey chocolatey goodness that only brownies can deliver? Don’t even think about picking up a pre-made mix from the grocery store; these local dessert destinations serve up homemade, melt-in-your-mouth brownies that'll have you reaching for a glass of milk.


159 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H4

The lemon chèvre brownies at this Gastown bakeshop are the stuff of legends. Originally from Whistler, Purebread is winning over the hearts (and stomachs) of downtown Vancouverites thanks to its delectable selection of baked goods, both sweet and savoury. The signature brownie is an interesting riff on the childhood classic; the creamy chèvre cheese gives the treat a rich, moist consistency while the addition of lemon creates a light, refreshing flavour. For brownie purists, there’s an outrageous all-chocolate version as well.

Crème de la Crumb

1215 Clark Dr, Vancouver, BC V5L 3K6

Say goodbye to your diet – at least for this week. Once you’ve had a taste of the home-made brownies at Creme De La Crumb, eating healthy and balanced foods will suddenly take a backseat. The desserts at this East Van bakery are custom made so you won’t find them anywhere else in Vancouver. Special attention goes into the sweet, moist chocolate-packed brownies. The friendly service and village vibe make it impossible to leave with anything but a smile on your face.

Cafe Trafiq

4216 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V 3P9

There are two types of people in this world: those who like cake and those who like brownies. Luckily, Trafiq doesn’t discriminate and has baked treats to satisfy every kind sweet tooth – but their brownies are the big winner in our opinion. While others ooh and aah over the impressive cakes on display, skip to the front of the line and pick up an incredibly rich, chocolatey brownie that’ll leave you satisfied for days. There are healthier food options here as well, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Terra Breads

53 5th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V5Y 1H4

When you’re killing time at the Olympic Village Ferry Dock, pop into Terra Breads for a scrumptious brownie. This café takes care of all your food needs, from pizza and artisan baked breads to freshly brewed coffee and, of course, brownies. Customer service is top-notch, no matter if you’re popping in to grab a quick dessert or unpacking your laptop and staying awhile. There are also three other locations to gorge on brownies: Kitsilano, Granville Island and Mount Pleasant.

Cadeaux Bakery Inc

172 Powell St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1G1

Ask any Vancouverite to name their favourite bakery, and the answer will likely be Cadeaux. This Gastown hotspot is light, bright and airy, with minimalist modern décor that includes a pretty wallpapered focal wall and round light fixtures. It opens at 8:00 am during the week (9:00 am on weekends) so you can get their brownie fix before work. Save your money for the three different kinds of brownies available: dark chocolate, cream cheese swirl and salted caramel.

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.
