Tangram Creamery

The new year rings in with new creameries, one which is Tangram Creamery on the corner of Arbutus and 12th in Vancouver. Facing the street with full-length windows, you can admire the beautiful and clean interior of the store which boasts of a large counter, a glossy wooden communal table, and rustic lights (which remind me of the ones from Ramenman).

New ice cream places are popping up left and right in Vancouver these days and the newest one in town is 720 Sweets, a little shop in Kitsilano just across from East is East which opened last week. At 720 Sweets, they specialize in ice cream that is visually appealing and donned with toppings, cookies, and other weird things like cotton candy

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.

Waffle Gone Wild

There really isn't anything better than waffles for dessert, I mean they're savoury AND sweet. Waffle Gone Wild has been around for a while but I only recently got the chance to visit (and thank goodness I did). This place is super cozy and seats 10 people at most. If you've been to Nero's Belgium Waffles in downtown, you'll find that Waffle Gone Wild has a similar layout. It is however, much "cuter" here as there are collages of pictures and other decorations around the store. Unlike Nero's, you can sit down at a table before ordering if you're planning to dine in.

Malt + Marrow

Malt & Marrow is one of Vancouver's newer restaurant additions which boasts of "good drinks, good food, and good company" with Northern European influences. Looking for some West Coast cuisine in the area, my friend and I decided to try out this modern gastropub and take advantage of their lovely patio area.

49th Parallel & Lucky's Doughnuts

I'm fond of Kits not only because of the relaxing and youthful vibe of the general area, but also the interesting array of small restaurants that line the streets. The area makes for a good place to sit back with a coffee for a chat with friends. I'm sure most Vancouverites know about 49th Parallel by now but I just had to blog about this place after my visit to it's West 4th location a few days ago.
