Sweet Revenge Patisserie – Stress Release Part 3
This is Part 3 of our journey to find solace after some fairly rough weeks of renos/restorations. You can find our previous posts here: Part 1 and here: Part 2. So, carrying on from our last post, we had just left Joey Burnaby and were on the lookout for a decent dessert place in the area. The only problem is that there is a definite lack of places to go in North Burnaby if you’re looking for something other than bubble tea. After an aborted visit to BG Urban Cafe, we wound up travelling all the way down to Main Street for some yummy noshing at Sweet Revenge Patisserie.
This tiny (and I mean really narrow) nook on Main Street was already pretty busy when we arrived but we managed to snag a table next to some vintage Asian-themed ads on the wall. It was a bit cold this night so we opted for the Euro Hot Chocolate with real whipped cream ($3.95). In addition to be a tiny hole-in-the-wall, Sweet Revenge is also quite dimly lit so apologies for the bad cell phone pics. The hot chocolate was pretty rich and perfect for sipping while contemplating revenge on those businesses involved with our recent restoration debacle.
On the left is the Berry Triffle ($7.50) served in a tall glass with sponge cake soaked in Grand Marnier, fresh berries, vanilla custard and more of that wonderful fresh whipped cream. The Zuccotto is the dome-shaped cake covered in chocolate ganache over layers of sponge and fresh berry mousse. I opted for their namesake dessert… the Sweet Revenge®. Composed of an extremely dense torte-like cake encased in dark chocolate ganache – it was quite satisfying (if not difficult to dig into owing to it’s dense structure).
This seems like it’s the perfect place to hangout and commiserate with friends over some tasty treats.
