Cute place, friendly staff, lots of bakery and coffee/tea options. Right next to another great restaurant and a grocery store in the same complex.

In a few days here on Pender we had the curry chicken pot pie, lentil soup, cranberry muffins, cinnamon twists, peach muffins, and scones. All very tasty.
This is a very nice bakery.

Each time we stay on Pender Island we come and enjoy a treat or two at this lovely bakery and café. The hardest thing about it is always having to choose between the many mouth-watering choices of goodies! So we just have to come back again and again and eat our way through the selection.
You will even find a good assortment of special treats for those who have any dietary restriction such as GF and DF - and they DO taste wonderful!
I have not bought their breads as of yet, but they look great too.
Vanilla Leaf Bakery is definitely worth a visit and I hear their cinnamon buns are amazing... so far they have been sold out every time we are there.
The service is great and the staff is happy to assist you with looking up any ingredients in their baking, even when they are busy. Now that's service I can appreciate.
Their gigantic red cups of hot chocolate or specialty coffees are perfect for a little romance or simply to share and have fun.

We were feeling like a lazy sunday, and vanilla leaf cafe was the perfect morning to our last day at Pender.
They have a delicious salted caramel blondie and, for chocolate peanut butter lovers, a chocolate peanut butter square that tastes like a reece's peanut butter cup on steroids.

Staff is super nice and there is definitely room to lounge with a good book.

I see that the new owner has renovated / reorganized the restaurant so hopefully the new arrangement works out. I noticed some familiar items such as pot pies etc.
I opted for an onion and cheese scone which was very flavourful. I also had a small bowl of the bean salad which was absolutely wonderful!
