Thomas Haas

Thomas Haas is a bakery and cafe located in Kitsilano. They also have a location in North Vancouver. They specialize in all sorts of French pastries, macarons, and croissants. They also have a sandwich menu available.

I have wanted to come to this location for a long time, but they have limited hours, so I haven’t had the chance until recently. When I went on a weekday afternoon the place was packed. It was hard to actually find a seat because it is very small inside the store.

Double Baked Almond Croissant

I had a double baked almond croissant. This croissant is one of my favourite dessert items around.

The croissant have an indulgent buttery flavour and the layers are perfectly flakey. I like how the soft almond filling inside actually tastes like almonds, and it doesn’t have that artificial almond flavour that many pastries have. The crispy outside coating of almonds provides a nice contrast to the softness of the inside layers.

My croissant was heavenly, but I wish that this location was bigger and had longer hours. The atmosphere in the store was a bit hectic and crowded, so it isn’t a place I would really want to linger with a cup of coffee. Come for the desserts, but be prepared to take them to go or fight for a seat.

Recommendation:

Yes, for the best croissants in Vancouver.
