So many choices, it makes it difficult to decide. The pure size / slice of cake you get is impressive. Share with a friend if counting calories or just indulge. Nice place to go if in the area for dinner to end the night.

The prices seemed a bit much when we looked at the menu but for an occasional treat this is the place to go. We ordered 4 desserts between all of us and they all were quite good. We had coconut cream pie, chocolate banana cream...More

I read those bitter reviews (btw, why are they always written by ugly people? I wonder) and all I can do is laugh. Comparing this place to franchise coffee house - hysterical. All their baking is done off site, on commercial scale. Unlike True Confections...More

We plan our meals in Vancouver carefully and we always have to factor dessert in from True Confections. We usually eat in but yesterday we were still full from dinner so we took our pieces back to the hotel. They were well packed. It's not...More

What more could a dessert lover ask for. It was different and the cakes were absolutely delicious. The boozy hot chocolate was amazing but the BEST THING EVER was the White Chocolate Martini! Also Martina who was our server made the experience even better. It's...More

Pls ask the waiter as to when these cakes were baked, they taste days old. Maybe maybe cheese cakes could be fresh

Some good cake, decent coffee and a great location - ideal after a day in Stanley Park or wandering Coal Harbour. A little overpriced and the decor is slightly dated, but all in all, a very good spot to relax and refuel.

Overpriced, old, no taste, dry cake. Don't waste your money or time stopping by this dessert restaurant. We had the devils food cake and the diplomat cake. Very disappointed!

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
