My friends and I were at a Taiwanese restaurant for our last dinner together until one year later. We were checking out their dessert menu, but we left the restaurant without having any dessert, as some of us already had milk tea and also we couldn’t find what we wanted to order.

On the way home, one friend said to go somewhere for dessert. We don’t have much information around the area, so we decided to go to Cactus Club Cafe near Metrotown. The restaurant is on Kingsway and open till late.

We each ordered some dessert or drink.

I knew the galette would be big, so I chose the lava cake. I liked it, although I found it sweet. The sourness of raspberry coulis was helpful for that.

After my friend and I had dinner at Yaletown, I was so full. We walked towards downtown core and looked for a place to have tea or coffee, as she wanted to do so. When we left Yaletown, it was already 10:30 pm. I know that one place, for sure, is open till late, so we headed, but there were full of people even outside the cafe! We tried couple more, but no luck. And, finally, I was wondering if this restaurant allowed us having just tea, as the name is cafe.

It is Cactus Club Cafe on Burrard street, just across the Burrard Skytrain station. We walked in and asked if that was OK, and the hostess said no problem. 🙂

We each ordered some tea and shared a dessert.

The dessert was huge! Well, I was too full to eat, so just had couple bites. My friend paid for me and gave me some gifts as well, as my birthday was coming up in December. 🙂

I went to Granville Island on one weekend, and I walked all the way to Denman from there. Because there was one place that I found before and that seemed new, and I wanted to go there for late lunch. Yet, for some reason, it wasn’t open. Well, I was hungry and needed to eat something, so I jumped into the cafe.

Delany’s Coffee House is on Denman street, close to English Bay. They have pastries or stuff. There was a tasteful pie-like pastry, so I asked a lady what it was. I couldn’t catch what it was, but I ordered anyways. 😛 After I started eating, I asked her to spell it for me. 🙂
