Eat, Drink Chocolate and Be Merry

  • November 28, 2013 · 7:00 PM

We're back at Thierry this week, because it was such a great experience last time!

It's tricky finding a place in Vancouver that (a) serves delicious treats, (b) is open late, and (c) is accessible to everyone both driving and taking transit. As I'm a busy gal, I wanted to continue our Thursday night sweet shenannigans, however I'm just too busy to locate and make arrangements with a few venue this week.

Thierry is a wonderfully decadent French patisserie that specializes in all things chocolate and yummy, including authentic macarons, mille-feuilles, cakes, liquid chocolate, and more. You can get a macaron for $1.95, however most of the items on the menu are pricier than your average bakery or coffee shop. In true French tradition however, they're also much more decadent.

Look for us sitting outside, to the left of the door. The staff should know we're there, however it's pretty easy to spot us as there's little seating here. 

Thierry is a two-block walk from Burrard Skytrain station, and there's a lot of night parking available in the area. They're open until midnight, so if you can come later, please make a comment so that I can open the RSVP's accordingly.

It s called True Confessions and it s at the corner of Denman and Robson. A very big variety of cakes, to those who like tea with flavors there s a big list and many more. I ll post a link pretty soon

    Waiting list means...

      Means that there isn't enough room at the event, and you'll need to wait until someone else decides they can't go for whatever reason, for you to attend. This is a really small place, and we'll be sitting outside (although there are heaters).

    The last meetup gathering I went to was at the bbq. Enjoyed it last time, so I thought why not try it again?

    Hey Bonny, I doublechecked and I can confirm you that Faubourg in downtown does not close at 5PM, but at least at 8PM, I do not know where you saw this information. 5Pm is the closure of their afternoon tea in the other store in Kerrisdale^^ You won't have any excuses next time ;)

      Good to know! (I called, and it was also on their website) The only issue is that we usually can only go starting at 7pm... however I'll post one for 6pm for the next week. Is there seating inside? Room for @ 20 people?

      November 18, 2013

    • Francois

      in downtown yes absolutely, 20 people can fit. I do not know the exact number of seats. However you might try to see with them for a booking if needed. They 're not used to meetups, but it should be fine. If you've the possibility I think that the best way for you is to have a look there during the weekend for example, just to check the size of the room, and the pastries available^^ .
