Rooster’s Ice Cream

Rooster’s Ice Cream opened over the summer and being the ice cream fanatic that I am, I had to check it out.  Sorry this post is a bit late since it’s fall already! This year has just flown by!

The store is located near VCC on Broadway and it’s easy to miss if you’re not looking for it. The inside is sparsely decorated with some local paintings on the wall and there’s only two tables inside. The concept is pretty similar to the ever popular Earnest Ice Cream and Rain or Shine.

Rain or Shine Ice Cream-Taco Tuesday!

I’ve seen lots of pictures from Taco Tuesday and I finally went! They have a new location on Cambie and 18th which is a lot closer to me too. With the warm weather lately, I’ve been eating ice cream non-stop! I am so thankful I’m not lactose intolerant!!!

Soirette Macarons

I’ve never made it to Soirette before because the location was slightly out of the way in the Coal Harbour area but I was eating at Aki Japanese Restaurant and Soirette happened to be down the block so it was the perfect opportunity to drop by. They seem to be mostly known for their macarons and they also do afternoon tea as well. I love how cute the store is!

Cartem’s Donuterie

I think I’ve found my favorite donut shop! Also, I follow them on Instagram and I saw pictures of their London Fog Stuffie so I knew I had to try it. I’ve been on a bit of a London Fog/Earl Grey craze this year… They are located on Pender and Seymour, a block away from Waterfront station. Donuts are $3 each and tax is included already.

Here is the London Fog Stuffie! I was too busy stuffing my face to notice what kind of a glaze was on top of the donut. But the inside was very light fluffy.
