8 dessert cafes to check out in Vancouver

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good gelato spot or after-dinner treat to satisfy our sweet cravings, but there’s something special about seeking out a dessert-focused cafe. The dim lighting, the decadent desserts, the art-lined walls. It all comes together to form the perfect dining experience. And while Vancouver might not have the longest list of spots serving exclusively dessert – we’ve rounded up the handful that caught our eye.

Without further ado, here are 8 dessert cafes to check out in Vancouver when you’re craving something sweet.

Aphrodite’s Organic Pie Shop

A staple spot for homemade pies in Kitsilano, Aphrodite’s has become a quintessential visit for any dessert lover. From Blackberry Apple to vegan Chocolate Cream Pie – there are plenty of tasty options to choose from. And each pie can be made with a gluten-free crust for $6! Our suggestion? Grab a slice along with a mug of their homemade chai to wash it down.

Where: 3605 West 4th Avenue

Trafiq Cafe & Bakery

Where: 4216 Main Street

Beaucoup Bakery

Open from 9 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and until 5 pm on weekends, Beaucoup is pretty much part of the food culture fabric of Vancouver at this point.

Pistachio Sweetery Cafe

We’re including this newer pick even though they offer savoury options as well. Pistachio Sweetery Cafe has garnered a rep for having some of the best cheesecake in the city – which means its spot on this list is definitely earned.

The dessert-focused cafe is 100% halal and has a plethora of Middle Eastern pastries and sweets to choose from – including authentic kunafa and baklava. And since pistachios are a staple product of the region, you’ll likely have no trouble remembering the name. Oh, and don’t sleep on their weekly Arabian Music Nights!

Where: 686 Seymour Street

Nero Belgian Waffles

Where: 1703 Robson Street and 1002 Seymour Street

Trees Organic

With locations all around Vancouver, Trees Organic is a staple spot for great cheesecake, coffee, and open mic nights.

Where: Multiple locations across Vancouver

 Crackle Crème

Last but certainly not least, we come to Crackle Crème – a newcomer to the scene with a penchant for craft-style desserts,
crème brûlée, and Belgian waffles. A first of its kind in the city, Crackle Crème serves a slew of rotating crème brûlée flavours, including Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Salted Caramel, Earl Grey, Ferrero Rocher, Black Sesame, Pandan Coconut, Honey Lavender, Organic Matcha, and a rotating Vegan crème brûlée flavour.

Where: 245 Union Street

And that’s a wrap on some delicious dessert-focused spots in Vancouver! Bon appetite!
