“Wanna get lucky?”… before you get the wrong idea, I’m talking about Lucky’s Doughnuts.
So, apparently there’s a whole day dedicated to macarons and that day was today. I’m not sure why I like macarons… perhaps it’s a subliminal thing since I like macaroni and cheese so much? Hmmm… macaron and cheese? Could that be the next big food trend? Read the rest of this entry
Late last year, The Pie Shoppe opened up in a little nook located in Chinatown. If you walk along Gore Street, you couldn’t be blamed for missing this little shop next to Lok’s Produce. Read the rest of this entry
As I mentioned on my last post on The Mighty Oak, one of the main reasons for visiting was to pick up fresh baked pies from The Pie Hole in Vancouver.

After hitting up Bob’s Submarine Shop in Richmond, I noticed the bright signs of Kam Do Bakery across the street (next to the Shoppers Drug Mart at Richmond Centre).

It’s been a little over a year since Cakeaters opened up their little shop in Champlain Heights so I’m assuming their business is going okay. As I mentioned on my last post, this particular location was a revolving door for different shops that have come and gone over the years so it’s nice that there’s a little stability for now.
