Always freshly made with an outstanding job on icing. I love all the flavours that are available. My favourite it raspberry chocolate and coconut. Their marshmallows are also very yummy.

We visited Butter Cafe on the recommendation of a friend. The owners have taken some care to make the interior with its flowery wallpaper look a bit like a fancy dessert place. The selection, while substantial, tends to the ordinary though—cookies, bars, macaroons, cupcakes. While on our first visit there were some pies showing, it didn’t appear that one could... More

This is our neighbourhood bakery. The desserts never fail to impress. Today we had a horrible problem with service and forgotten orders, cold hot chocolates, coffee, etc. BUT the owner made it right and was extremely nice and fair about it. Thank you! We will be back.

We've gone several times to this yummy bakery! (I've also purchased both cookbooks from Butter). The only reason I don't give this a five dot rating is that I've been when it's needed a good dusting and sweep. Hasn't hindered me in buying the goodies, though!

Bought the Butter cookbook and made several things in it. Was excited to come to Vancouver and be able to visit in person. Shop did not disappoint. Arrived at three on Sunday and still had a good selection. The shop was beautifully decorated and the treats were exceptional. Saw a couple having full tea next to us and would love... More

I love coming here after school with the kids, or anytime. I don't mind buying stuff to take home, but I do love enjoying my coffee and treat there. It's just so pretty! Coffee is good too. Loads of cookies, bars and cupcakes. I wish they had more cakes, though, that would awesome.

This little neighbourhood gem became my absolute favourite place for afternoon tea. All of their food was outstanding, and in particular, their gluten-free options were better than those at places that charged more money and provided smaller portions. I have been waiting for them to re-open pending their renos and cookbook photo shoot...and have just learned that they won't :(... More

I was at Butter yet again the other day with a friend (her first time). When I made the reservation they, as always, asked about any food allergies. I mentioned that now I was, by choice, gluten free, and didn't expect them to be able to accommodate me in that. Boy, was I wrong! With making a reservation a few... More

I've now been to the Butter Tea Room several times and was fortunate enough to get a gift certificate for Mother's Day. The decor is lovely, the service quiet and professional, and even the demi-tea is so full of treats that you will have lots to take home for a little something later. Their sandwiches and small bars are definitely... More

Afternoon teas have always been a delightful experience for me, and I've always wanted to try out every high tea location in Vancouver. Not only is it a perfect opportunity to catch up with old pals, it is also a fantastic time to sip tea and enjoy a platter of sweets as well as savoury finger food. After their renovation,... More
