Le Marché

I have a new favourite café in Vancouver. Tucked away on the corner of two residential streets in Vancouver’s East Side this place has a real community spirit as well as delicious coffee and to die for pastries. So far I have tried an almond croissant and a dark chocolate, walnut and ginger biscotti and both were incredible.

The café is situated in the shop front of a former store and the current owners have kept the shop tradition going, stocking a selection of food and household products as well as a great selection of fresh, local produce. The building has retained its traditional features, and the tables, chairs and benches outside are perfectly in keeping with it and with the leisurely neighbourhood pace.

I have spent several happy afternoons relaxing out here watching the world go by, listening to the friendly interactions of the locals and watching the bees hover around the hives on the roof of the garage a few doors down.

The café was recently featured in Monocle magazine and I’ve seen it a cropping up on a couple of other occasions online recently so I’m pleased that more people will get to discover it.
