This post is actually very late. I’ve been here numerous of times since I’ve first been here. If you were to ask me my favourite bakery – this is it Le Fourmil is an amazing bakery in an great space. I’ve ordered my birthday cake from here, I’ve brought my friends here, my father-in-law, the list goes on.
This particular time I ordered their Almond Croissant and it’s an amazingly flaky croissant with a delicious almond topping with some filling. The croissant has a spectacular texture, and we’ve even tried their chocolate croissant and savoury ones. They’re all amazing.
I’ll never go to a little shop like this without ordering a latte. Their coffees are very tasty, not too strong but they take so much care in everything they make.
There’s plenty of parking here, they used to have a nice space for you to sit down in, but they have chairs outside if you need to eat your purchases right away. Their tarts, breads, pastries, everything is worth a try!! My best advice, keep going back to try everything!

We all know I love road trips and with Covid-19 I’m unable to even leave the province, so I figured I’ll take a little trip by going this route! For my coffee series, I found the perfect “O” and I knew it was at Our Town Cafe in Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s a beautiful lake front cafe that’s stylish and comfortable. There’s street parking along a park and it’s a perfect location for a cafe!
I ordered a quick treat with a latte and it was magnificent! The space was clean and contemporary where it was very organized. I was very satisfied with the space, coffee and baked good! I had their chocolate loaf which was very moist and delicious!
Overall experience here was magnificent. If I wore a sweater, I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed sitting on the patio, but it was breezy. So, I just watched the crowd come in and out from inside.

I like pies, and I had a family in town for a month and I decided to try to get pies to make… but that never happened!! So, on Pie Day I wanted pie and found myself on a drive to the other end of the city to get some pie at Pie Junkie to bring back home, heat up and eat!
When we got there, there was a lineup and it was great to see!! I love supporting local businesses and this is one I’m happy to support. I got myself a Aussie Beef Pie and I wasn’t sure what it was. It’s a great pie with a flaky buttery crust filled with ground beef and then there was some gravy/sauce that spilled out in the centre!! It was amazing and it kind of reminded me of sheppards pie filling.
We also got their Butter Chicken Pie and it was quite tasty. It wasn’t really a butter chicken taste, but it was a delicious chicken filling with a bit of heat! The crust was also flaky and buttery and it’s almost like the Jamaican pie crust!
Then just as we’re paying, I needed a sweet pie. Everyone knows I have a sweet tooth and I got their Coconut Cream Pie which was absolutely beautiful!! The cream was light and fluffy, and great coconut taste!
Overall the pies were stuffed to the brim and was packed full of flavours! To reheat was simple as it said heat up in a cold oven 250F until you see a puddle of butter in the bottom. It was perfectly heated up and these pies are the best I’ve ever had!
