Gifts of Sugar
Gastown just got a little sweeter, thanks to the newly-opened Cadeaux Bakery.
This delicious and roomy patisserie is brought to us by two talented pastry chefs who previously delighted us with their baked goods at Chambar. Since ‘cadeau’ means gift in French, I decided to treat myself with some self-gifting. I had the most decadent buttery croissant ($2.75), a melt-in-your-mouth apple custard danish ($3.35), and two tiny bite-sized truffles, a sweet and savoury salted caramel and a refreshing lemon coconut ($1.50 each). I could have kept going, but I’m exercising a little thing called self-control. —Anya Georgijevic
