I personally believe that the best kind of first date is always a coffee date and that you can't go wrong with popping by Faubourg Paris! Although, don't get confused where this cafe is located at... it's in Vancouver, not Paris folks. When I posted a photo on Instagram this week, people thought I was in Paris! Although, I did wished that was the case since Paris is known for its delicious pastries and treats. However, I do think Faubourg Paris does a great imitation of the Parisian experience. Well, at least from what I remember from watching movies (Haha). I've actually never been to Paris, but it's definitely on my bucket list.
I came here with my blogger friend, Alicia and we stood at their counter for a good 10 minutes since we couldn't decide on what to order. Just look at all the choices in yummy treats that they have - it was impossible to pick one since we wanted everything!
In the end, we went with ham & cheese croissant, pastry of the month and tri-chocolate decadent. Alicia and I were very satisfied with our choices and the pastries complemented our drinks - the cafe latte and cappuccino very well.
Here is the pastry of the month and we almost didn't want to eat it, because it's too cute. What I love about this is that it's filled with tiramisu and whipped cream. It's not too sweet, so it was perfect for me.
Orchids and paintings are some my favourite decors, so when I saw them together at Faubourg Paris - I had to take some photos. Oh look, that's me with my coffee because it was coffee-o'clock.
Ending this post with a selfie I took with Alicia that afternoon on our coffee date. Happy Monday!
