The Sweet Revenge Patisserie is, in my opinion, the best dessert-only restaurant in Vancouver. Walking through the doors is like walking into a former era – the luxurious red wallpaper, the mix of wrought iron garden sets and the petite tables, loveseats and chairs make you feel like you are in a 19th century tea room.
As well as having a delicious dessert menu, the Sweet Revenge Patisserie has an extensive menu of tea, coffee and spiked drinks. Everything is served on bone china and doilies. The Sweet Revenge Patisserie is a great place to go for an almost midnight snack, for a date, for a tea party or just to relax. But beware – if you are tall or large, you may have to deal a lack of knee room and have trouble holding the tiny teacup handles, but this is no reason not to go, you just have to get inventive!
My favourite menu items are the Smooth Operator cake and the blueberry tea (tea with a shot of flavoured liquor). If you visit the Sweet Revenge Patisserie from Monday to Wednesday they offer a “CSI” cake sampler and ice cream menu item, which comes with four types of cake! It is definitely a delicious experience worth having.
If you like dessert (or even just tea), you will love what the Sweet Revenge Patisserie has to offer!
