This winsome, family-run patisserie has charmed fans of quality French and Italian pastries since it opened in 1926. Customers have been celebrating family events with treats from this Vancouver fixture for generations. Flaky pastries stand beside rich truffles and airy meringues in the glass display cases, creating a feast for the eyes that's just a teaser for the taste experience ahead. Their beautiful cakes, in high demand for weddings, will turn any day into a special occasion.
Cakes For Every Taste
Notte's specializes in cakes, and they've got something for every taste - from the flaky, rum-soaked decadence of the Diplomat cake, to the traditional hazelnut and butter cream of the Vienna. A special that regulars know to look out for is the orange cream cake, which appears on the board from time to time and disappears just as quickly. Cookies (including an irresistible Italian shortbread), mousses, apple pie and seasonal offerings like hot cross buns round out a dazzlingly diverse array of treats.
Old-Fashioned Tea Room
The tea room offers a chance to enjoy pastries the old-fashioned way - tiers of cakes and pastries are presented at your table, and you can indulge your fancy piece by piece. Or take an afternoon break for a cup of hot chocolate, made with melted chunks of chocolate and topped with whipped cream, and accompanied by a simple croissant – the world might just look a little rosier afterwards. Notte's celebrates the European tradition of cake, not as an afterthought to dinner, but as a rich culinary experience on it's own.
