The original plan was to stop in at Canary Island Pies in West Vancouver, but it was crazy-busy, and we didn’t feel inclined to wait in line, so we ventured across the street to C C Violin Patisserie.
I ordered the cafe latte
and a chocolate hazelnut croissant
This is a terrific croissant. It’s light, buttery and flaky, with a hazelnut spread and hazelnut slivers, and the inside is laced with a ribbon of rich dark chocolate.
My companion opted for a chocolate cookie.
This cookie tasted pretty good, but it was rather hard. Not just crisp around the edge, it was HARD. Really hard. I recall, they were called “Sexy Chocolate Cookies”, but I think it needs a new name. Crunchy is not a quality that I associate with sexy. :p
The room/ambiance was quite nice, it’s clean, elegant and not too cramped.
The service was pretty good, but not noteworthy.
