Disclaimer: I won a giveaway from Trees Organic Coffee for free cheesecake, drinks and a gift bag for 4 people
Trees Organic Coffee opened a new location on Broadway and Fir St. a few months ago. To celebrate, they hosted a giveaway on Instagram and on Facebook and the lucky winners would receive free cheesecake and drinks for themselves and 3 friends. I won the Instagram giveaway and redeemed my prize last month.
I’ve been to Trees Organic Coffee quite a few times in the past and most recently, when they offered 50% off cheesecake for National Cheesecake Day over the summer. Their claim to fame is that they were voted “The Best Cheesecake in Vancouver”. They have various locations downtown.
On a rainy afternoon, the cafe was filled with students quietly studying. The new space looks open and inviting and the big windows allow for lots of light to come in.
We ordered the Sin Cheesecake, Mocha Cheesecake, Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake and the Key Lime Cheesecake (from top left to right). For drinks they offer the standard assortment of lattes, americanos, cappuccinos etc. We had the Chai Latte, Apple Cider, Mocha and another Chai Latte.
The Sin Cheesecake has the sinful combination of dark chocolate and sour cherry. The cheesecake was so creamy and incredibly smooth and the dark chocolate crumb base went really well with it.
The Mocha Cheesecake offered a slightly chocolatey flavour with hints of espresso and it featured the same chocolate base as the Sin cheesecake.
At the back, we have the Key Lime Cheesecake which offered a slightly lighter and more refreshing taste. It was almost like we used it for a palette cleanser in between bites of the Sin and Mocha cheesecake. I love lemon/lime flavours so this was a winner to me.
Since it was fall, I wanted to get everything that had pumpkin spice! I’m a basic bitch I know… The Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake ended up being my least favourite though. For some reason, it didn’t have the same creamy texture and it was slightly more dense? The flavour was alright but the texture threw it off.
The drinks were all pretty standard so no complaints there.
This location would be a great place to study and hang out with friends while grabbing some cheesecake. Thanks again for the awesome giveaway! :)
