Crème de la Crumb

On Granville street there is a tiny hidden gem cafe and bakery called Creme de la Crumb. They also have another location near the Vancouver library and one inside the VSO school of music building on Seymour. There aren’t any seats inside this location but there are  but its a great place to pick up a coffee and something for breakfast on your way to work. They also sell some paninis and salads at lunch time but what they are really known for is their baked goods.

I heard about their heavenly scones and so one morning for breakfast I decided to stop by and grab one on my way to work. I had a hard time deciding between the coconut scone and the apple cheddar scone but I finally decided on the apple cheddar. If I remember correctly the scone was around $3.50 but it was massive. It’s probably the biggest scone I’ve seen. The scone was flaky on the outside but moist in the middle which was great because I hate overly dry scones. It was full of big chunks of soft sweet apple and the sweetness was offset by lots of cheddar cheese on top. It was a surprisingly filling breakfast and it was totally delicious. I would order it again in a second.

I returned a few days later to try some other baked goods and I got the cinnamon bun (which was around the same price as the scone). Comparatively the cinnamon bun wasn’t as large as the scone. It had a nice flavor but it wasn’t quite as moist as I would have liked. The vanilla bean cream cheese frosting was really delicious and definitely the star show. They also have a carrot cake on their menu that has the vanilla bean cream cheese frosting and I want to try that the next time I go.

Recommendation:

Yes, for anyone who likes freshly baked things.

    Great review, Amy :) I absolutely LOVE this place! They catered a few of our office parties so everyone at work is addicted to their baked goods! They also make a great carrot cake – we ordered a big one for a birthday… my favourite items are still their vanilla bean scones and waffles… *drool*

      Oh they have waffles? I didn’t see any when I went but that sounds yummy. I also need to try the vanilla scone, I’ve only had the apple cheddar one but it was amazing! Guess I’ll have to go back to try em all :)
