t-room: bakery & kitchenware store

Ahh. Fall in Vancouver is my favourite time of the year...

Today is Gymboree music class for Bib. She's in Music I and is lovin' it (sorta). Well, she only cries when another baby starts crying. I think it's sympathetic crying on her part. Stomach and Bib stayed for the class and Bebe and I went for a stroll along 10th Avenue since it was a great sunny day. On the way back I noticed a bakery that I had read about in the Georgia Straight. It's T Room: Bakery & Kitchenware, located in Point Grey Village.

The word "kitchenware" on the sign beckoned me because I'm a sucker for kitchen gadgets.

I spotted a funky blue and brown apron (which I purchased) and salivated over all the goodies. Bebe wanted the Princess Cake (of course) and I wanted the Chocolate Mousse, although the Sacher looked enticing as did the Meringue Sandwiches.

are those matcha cookies i see in that cookie jar?

yeah, i know it's green, but bebe wanted it!

The friendly staff gave me a tour of the store and allowed me to take some pictures. They do not yet have a website set up and just recently opened this past July.

T Room's great because it's got it all. They have one side of the store dedicated to really cool kitchenware. The other side is the "tea/dining" area and further to the back of the store you have a private room you can book for special functions. This room overlooks the backyard garden and you can overlook the kitchen area where all the delicious sweets are made.

The highlight of T Room on a beautiful sunny Vancouver day is the backyard garden. It is absolutely gorgeous. I was told that you could have little parties back here and they recently hosted a preschooler's birthday party. They also offer a selection of great teas and I was told they do High Tea as well.

I had to leave but I'll have to visit again and try their teas.
It looks like the perfect place for me to hang out with a cup of tea, a dainty sweet and a huge stack of essays to mark!

Thanks for your post on this place. I went and liked the place a lot, but I never would have known about the courtyard out back if I hadn't seen it on your blog! I didn't get a chance to use it, as it was raining, but am looking forward to that on a sunny day.

Thanks for the post. This is a great hidden gem. The thing about Vancouver is there are so many great places to visit so its really easy to miss cool places like this. I mean Broadway alone has more places than you can visit in a year.

The garden here looks amazing, I'll have to check it out the next time we get a sunny day (if ever).

This place is really fantastic.The photos shows all the amazing angle in that place. I hope I can also go here in person. =) Although I'm not a fan of sweets but I would still want to experience coming in here. =)
By the way, Christmas is getting closer. I hope we can be green this Christmas. Go Green :)
