When I went to downtown Vancouver to get some dinner home, I also went to this place. Ow, their custard cream is a treat for me! 🙂

Beard Papa’s is located on Robson street. The store is tiny and there is no space to seat. They sell mainly cream puff including eclair, but also cheesecake stick and chocolate lava cake. Their cream puff is filled with custard cream made in Japanese way. The custard is not buttery but creamy and sweet.

I wanted to buy Paris Brest, which custard cream is in donuts, but it was sold out. So, I bought regular cream puff and eclair.

One day, my friend told me that she had afternoon tea tickets that she had bought at Dealfind deal last year. She was going to go with her family but couldn’t have arranged, and the tickets were going to expire soon. So, she invited me and Collin, and our other friend. Originally, the tickets were not valid on Sundays, but because of too many reservations, the hotel accepted Saturdays, too.

Afternoon tea was served at 900 West Lounge at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. When you go into the hotel, you see the lounge in the centre of the hotel. The entrance for Afternoon tea, though, is at the end of the lounge, close to the taxi loop. At the front lounge, you can eat lunch or dinner, listening Jazz music.

I chose Fairmont Earl Grey from Sri Lanka. The others chose Versailles Lavender Earl Grey from France and Ice Wine from Sri Lanka.

We were a group of four, so two towers came.

The scones were warm, and moist and soft. One of my friend even said that she wanted to buy some if they sell. I agree. Their scones were nicely baked, and the cream tasted good.

I was too full to eat these sweets after having scones and sandwiches, so I brought the most of them to home. Even on the next day, they tasted fine.

For the sandwiches, we all had separate opinions. Some liked salmon, some liked focaccia, etc. To me, they were OK. Some of the bread were dry, which is understandable but a bit disappointing part.

Well, we all enjoyed tea and the food as well as time spent with friends. 🙂

On Italian Day festival on Commercial Drive, I walked around after Collin and I had lunch and he left for work. There were lots of restaurants, cafe, and shops open, and also there were a few events on the drive.

The first thing I went was a bakery store where I had been but didn’t buy any at that time. Fratelli Bakery is an authentic Italian bakery, located at the corner of 2nd Avenue, and they sell bread, pastries, cake, or cookies.

I bought some dessert for that night.

The custard cream was a little bit sour to me, like lemon-ish? I preferred Beard Papa’s. 😛 However, Collin really really liked it!

And, extra pictures of their showcase.
