L'Opera Patisserie

Afternoon tea is one of my stomach's favourite (and my wallet's least favourite) type of food and it's easy to see why - exotic tea, decadent scones, mini sandwiches, and beautiful pastries. For a long time, many of Vancouver's high tea destinations have been located downtown or in Kerrisdale. Thankfully for Richmonders, these past few years have brought our part of town a few tea cafes of our own, L'Opera being one of them

Cafe Joie

Metrotown is somewhere every Vancouverite has been to, but have you been to Cafe Joie? This quaint cafe is located literally 2 minutes away from the big mall and I have to say it is definitely a gem that I will be going back to. Not only is the interior to my liking, but also the type of food they serve: coffee, sandwiches, and waffles! This is a great addition to the Metrotown area which really lacks in establishments of its kind.

I've scoured through Hong Kong, Taipei, Vancouver, San Francisco, and many more places to find the perfect waffle. So it's to no surprise that during my short trip to Portland, I had to find something to satisfy my craving.

Leonidas Waterfront (Hot Chocolate Festival)

Dine Out Vancouver may have ended for the year but not to fear, Hot Chocolate Festival is still here! (wow look at all that rhyming haha) Leonidas is a cute little dessert store tucked in the line of shops that border the Vancouver Convention Centre at Waterfront. It's easy to miss since it's one of the only stores that doesn't have a crazy big sign at the top so keep your eyes peeled for it!
