Créme de la Crumb Bakeshop (Clark Drive) – Mayan Hot Chocolate
Créme de la Crumb is a growing chain of bakery shops that serves up tasty pastries as well as deli items. The location on Clark Drive is nestled in the middle of a semi-industrial area and, aside from the dark counter area, actually seems pretty bright and spacious.
With the cold snap hitting Vancouver this December, I was looking for something to warm myself up with. I originally ordered a Hot Chocolate but the JLaw look-alike behind the counter convinced me into trying their new seasonal Mayan Hot Chocolate. The spices in the drink worked to heat up my chest very effectively.
To pair with my drink, I also ordered a Pain au Chocolat and a Chocolate Orange White Chocolate Scone. The chocolate croissant was light and flaky with a slight bittersweetness coming from the two rivers of chocolate inside. The scone was very yummy (although I really couldn’t taste any cranberry or orange) and had dark chocolate chunks spread throughout. It had a nice crunchy exterior and had a good balance of sweetness and heartiness to each bite.
There’s not a lot of parking around this shop during rush hour so you might need to park a couple of blocks away.
