I used to work near Sweetery Cafe but I never ended up blogging about it so here it is! It’s in between the Olympic Village skytrain station and Olympic Village. The area is industrial but new restaurants and breweries have been popping up as well as more condos. They’re only open Monday to Friday though and I see conflicting times on when they’re closed but I’m pretty sure they close at 5pm ( EDIT: they now open on Saturdays too! Check out Foodology’s post here.) In addition to dessert, Sweetery also serves soups and sandwiches for lunch. Their lunch special can be found on their Facebook page.
Instead of serving their Carrot Loaf in slices, they come in these mini loaves with cream cheese frosting on top. This was a good version with walnuts and raisins and the inside was moist. The amount of frosting was also generous.
I’m so glad I discovered this! It’s a Lemon Raspberry Bar with a shortbread crust and dusted with powdered sugar on top. The bar held up well and the flavours of the lemon and raspberry were both detectable. I thought it was a good combination of tart yet sweet.
On another occasion, I tried the Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse. I’m a sucker for things in jars! I found the mousse to be really dense and hard to scoop. It was not smooth at all. The chocolate hazelnut crumble on top was good but this dessert really needed some other flavours or textures in it to balance it out. Good thing I shared this!
Lastly we have a Pecan Pie Bar! It was chock full of pecans on top and embodied the essence of pecan pie well in a bar form. The crust was also nice and buttery.
I like most of their pastries and if you’re in the neighbourhood, it could be a good place to stop by for lunch as well. I also like that the space is big inside.
