What happened to the days when desserts were crafted and savoured, rather than manufactured and mass-consumed? Is there an alternative to factory produced "cakes" laden with shortening, chemicals and preservatives? There hasn't been a restaurant in Vancouver that specializes in good old-fashioned home-made desserts... until now.
A Lilliputian Room
Located in Vancouver's Mid Main area, our "desserts only" restaurant is an ideal way to finish off your busy day. Perfect for after the theatre, a movie, sporting event, dinner, or as a treat for yourself or someone special. The warm and inviting interior with faux tin ceilings, lush red wallpapers, oil lamps, antique style furniture and softwood floors set the mood. The music continues the nostalgic theme, ranging from Billie Holiday to Edith Piaf and Johnny Hartman.
We serve old fashioned, home made desserts, pies and pastry just like grandma used to bake (in fact some of our dessert recipes were handed down by our baker's grandmother). We use real butter, organic flour and organic free-range eggs in our desserts. We do NOT use shortening, margarine, lard or preservatives.
Our Tea and Coffee
We also have some organic coffees and teas to enhance your Sweet experience. Choose from dozens of loose leaf tea, including the popular rooibos from South Africa, each served in an individual teapot. Our regular coffees are freshly brewed in a French press coffee plunger, with organic coffee beans from the Salt Spring Roasting Company. All tea leaves and coffee beans are also available in bulk, with some discount for dine-in customers. Please pick up our take-out menu for pricing and details.
