After our dinner at Aki Japanese me and fellow SFU food bloggers (FoodologyGood Eat and I’m Busy Eating) were in need of some dessert so we hit up Thierry since it was just down the street. Thierry is a french cafe and patisserie where they make fresh croissants, cakes, macaroons, and other delicious desserts. It’s also open until midnight daily and its a great place for a nice evening dessert and coffee with friends. When you walk into the store its a bit overwhelming because they have so many different cakes and pastries that you don’t know what to get and everything looks yummy.

Chocolate Croissant

I decided to try a chocolate croissant because I had heard good things about their croissants and they bake multiple batches throughout the day so they are fresh. The croissant was fresh, flaky and buttery, just how a croissant should be. My one complaint was that there wasn’t really much chocolate inside of the croissant. I only got about two bites worth so next time I will just get a regular croissant instead of paying extra for the chocolate.

Honey Bush Vanilla Tea

I had a cup of honey bush vanilla herbal tea and it had a mild but sweet flavor to it. I liked the subtle fruity sweetness to it and it was a good tea to pair with desserts.

Apple Spice Macaroon

I also tried one of their seasonal macaroon flavors which was apple spice. The macaroon cookie was crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. There was a chunk of apple between the two cookies and the filling tasted like apple pie.

Raspberry and Blackberry Macaroons

On another occasion I tried their raspberry and blackberry macaroons. The colors are so bright and pretty and they also tasted delicious. There was actually a whole berry inside of the macaroon and the fruit filling tasted fresh and actually like real fruit.

Overall I really like Thierry. It is beautiful inside the store and every dessert I’ve tried from here has not only looked pretty but tasted delicious. I recommend the macaroons because you can’t go wrong with them there.


Yes for anyone who likes french pastries and sweets

    It’s a good thing you left the rasp and the blackberry ones last. The colour is so bright I nearly got blinded. I don’t think I’ve seen any French Pastry that bright before.
