Cake! Yes, cake. We love everything cake related. Think about it, cake is something you can eat anytime and anywhere.
(Alright, ignore the fact that some of us watch our diets)
You celebrate with cake. You nurse a broken heart with cake. Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, cake is always ready to accompany you. Rain, Sun, Snow, cake is always there to comfort you.
For those who are not really into sweets but love cakes, there is Cheesecake.
Numme numme (that’s how they say nom nom in Danish, FYI).
Cheesecake is a favourite among us here at Team Daily. New York Style, three-ingredient Japanese cheesecake (yes—we’re talking about the one that’s gone viral on Pinterest), pumpkin-spiced cheesecake that reveals itself every Fall, and the many flavours that cheesecake seems to get tossed into.
In no particular order, here are our favourite spots to indulge in some Cheesecake goodness in Vancouver.
Where: 2141 Granville St. Vancouver, BC
FIRST OF ALL, this place is perfect for that après date kind of vibe—dimmed lights, candlelight, hot beverages, and curtains blocking doorways and all. It is one of our favourites after dinner places and for more than just the pleasant atmosphere. The cheesecake is BOMB!
By all means, grab a slice of their original cheesecake but please do yourself a favour and order it with their strawberry sauce. Numme numme x 100. Unlike the standard New York style cheesecake, which is pretty dense in texture, the cheesecake at Cheesecake here melts in your mouth. It’s fluffy and tastes like the hand of a God whipped it together. God bless you, Cheesecake Etc. Thanks for making our cheesecake dreams come true every night of the week.
Where: 1262 Homer St, Vancouver, BC
We’re pretty sure that everything served is delicious upon delicious, as well as being hella aesthetic. This modern French patisserie (we say modern because their cakes have some creative twists here and there) is located in the town of Yale, so you know it is very fancy as well. Friends of ours have also had the experience of ordering customized cakes from Ganache Patisserie, and the results have been marvelous. You literally get to speak with pastry chef and owner Peter Fong about exactly what you’d like for your special occasion. They’ve got a coco-mango cheesecake right now and it is divine! Take it from us, and step into Ganache Patisserie for a café au lait and a taste of their wonderful cakes.
Where: 866 Denman St, Vancouver, BC and 3701 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC
True Confections is like the land of cakes. Their cakes are like the picture-perfect type of cakes with geometric layers and perfectly distributed icing. They’ve also got a wide range of cheesecakes available—from their famous blueberry cheesecake to chocolate peanut butter. We’d recommend trying their original blueberry cheesecake because the combination in itself is lethal. Like #1 on dream cheesecakes’ list, True Confections is great place to take a date.
Imagine gazing at each other over a slice of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake? It’s like a scene from a rom-com.
Where: 4160 Main St, Vancouver, BC
This place has definitely got character, a sultry kind of atmosphere, and a kickass playlist featuring some of the 1920’s best hits. Sweet Revenge is a relatively small all-desserts restaurant on Main Street, but that’s part of the charm. It’s got antiquey mismatched furniture, a red interior that adds to its sexy vibe, and due to the size of the place, it just screams intimate. Sweet Revenge features a white chocolate cheesecake—flourless and served with a homemade sauce.
Chicco Dall Oriente
Where: 1504 Robson St, Vancouver, BC
Duh, we wouldn’t mention Japanese style cheesecake then leave you hanging. Famous for their parfaits, Chicco serves up a wicked cheesecake parfait. It is a customer favourite among their long list of parfaits, of which includes green tea, black sesame, and more. Instead of using granola, this Japanese dessert café adds in cornflakes for some added crunch (a nice little change, yeah?).
The cheesecake included in their parfait is from their featured Japanese soft cheesecake. It’s soft, pillowy, spongy, and unlike the other cheesecakes on this list, Japanese cheesecakes are baked. The cheesy aspect to this version of the cake is not overpowering, as Japanese cakes are primarily meringue based and known for their exquisite lightness.It’s quite the change from your traditional kinda cheesecake. Jump on board the Japanese dessert train and grab a slice at Chicco!
Just like us, we are sure even you are in Cheesecake heaven right now. These were just some of the best ones in Vancouver and our favs. Don’t forget to let us know about the ones that make your heart flutter 😉
