1. Uno Gelato

Uno Gelato is brought to Vancouver by James Coleridge, one of the world’s most decorated gelato maestros. You can dig into original flavours such as Canadian Maple Hazelnut or Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake, all made with fresh local, organic ingredients. Who could possibly resist a scoop (or two!) of this?

2. Nana’s Green Tea

This hugely popular Japanese brand is a hit in Vancouver. With tasty drinks and desserts—with tea, of course—this is the perfect spot to satisfy your sweet tooth. Try the Matcha Shiratama Parfait, jam-packed with matcha pudding, vanilla and matcha ice cream, cereal, mochi balls, red bean paste, and topped with matcha syrup and whipped cream.

3. Chewie’s Biscuit Co. 

As the name suggests, this place is all about biscuits. Not just savoury though – try the mouth-watering french toast biscuit with berry compote and whip. Other sweet eats include homemade cinnamon rolls and the glazed bonut with a sweet milk glaze.

It’s far from what you might expect, but we reckon this place is a must-eat for dessert in Vancouver.

4. Hey Kokomo

Though the menu changes weekly, you can always expect some of the best dessert in Vancouver here. Past dessert options include Cocowhip, a vegan, gluten, and dairy-free soft serve, topped with raw chocolate brownies, chocolate sauce, hemp hearts, and crunchy cacao nibs; vegan cinnamon buns; and orange fig pecan chia seed scones.

Healthy, yet still absolutely, downright delicious.

5. Purebread

This cute little bakery has expanded in recent years and is a firm favourite among Vancouverites for its sweet treats. How ’bout a slice of raspberry riot topped with hot pink raspberry lemon drizzle or a chocolate-packed outrageous brownie? Purebread uses real, quality ingredients that help to make their goodies delicious.

6. Crackle Creme

Crackle Crème is a small, craft-style dessert cafe serving up artisan crème brûlée and authentic Belgian liège waffles. These are crème brûlées the likes of which you’ve never had before: salted caramel, pandan coconut, Ferrero Rocher, or infused with Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur, bourbon or Guinness.

7. Cartems Donuts

Yes, doughnuts count as dessert. They also count as breakfast, lunch and dinner in our eyes! Cartems really goes the extra mile when it comes to local and sustainable ingredients, baking their donuts fresh every single morning.

The menu includes healthier baked donuts, as well as their London Fog: glazed with an earl grey glaze and topped with stripes of white chocolate ganache, this donut is the ultimate indulgence.
