The Best Cupcake I've Ever Had
Submitted Sunday, July 19, 2009 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

I just went to the new Big City Cupcakes and was blown away by the cupcake I had. It was simply amazing! I ordered 1 'cupcake of the month' - It was chocolate with a white coconut icing. The cake was so moist and it had a real chocolate filling (no mousse or icing - they give you the real deal) - which just melts in your mouth. The icing was very nice too. The coconut on the top gave it a really nice flavor and it all went down so well - I savored every bite. It was definitely worth the $4! I'll for sure be back there.
The staff seemed very friendly and were able to tell me what was in every cupcake I asked about (which was almost all of them - they all looked so good!). The place is very clean and the company is based from Kelowna - I have no problem spending $4 on a delicious cupcake while supporting our local businesses.
If you want to be blown away and enjoy the best cupcake you've ever had - go to Big City Cupcakes!

Ceili's Irish Pub & Restaurant670 Smithe Street, Vancouver
Never Again
Submitted Monday, June 9, 2008 - 11:26am [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I live close by and thought we'd give it a try. Well it was a first and a last for us.

We sat on the top floor to enjoy the atmosphere. It's quite nice except for a few things. We noticed right away that there was quite a lot of bird droppings on the glass infront of some of the bar seating looking out onto Smithe. We're glad we didn't sit there - how appetizing is that? Staring at bird droppings while you're eating? The other thing we noticed right away was a stong bleach smell. It felt like we were at a pool or something. Again, not very appetizing.
After we sat down we were ignored by the staff for a solid 5 minutes before being told she'd be right there. After another 5 mintues we finally recieved some menus. This would have been more understandable if they were busy, which they weren't, or if they didn't pass by our table half a dozen times to see us waiting there.

My boyfriend ordered a beer ($7.25 for a pint) and I decided to go with a water after seeing the price for a cooler was over $6 and martinis started at $11. We ordered their nachos to share, figuring that pubs usually make good nachos and for $14 we should be getting something good.
Well, our expectations were shattered when we basically paid $14 for chips and salsa. There were tiny bits of cheese on less than 1/3 of the chips and about half a dozen each of tomato chuncks, olives, and jalepenos. We felt totally ripped off. They were by far the WORST NACHOS we've EVER had!
We decided not to waste any more of our money so we asked for the bill and planned to get some real food somewhere else. While we were waiting, it started to rain. The roof was open so everyone upstairs was getting rained on while trying to enjoy their food and drinks. A few people started shouting out that it was raining, but no staff members took any initiative to do something about it. A few people put up their umbrellas at their table. It was just embarassing!

When we finally got our bill, it was from another table. We had to flag down the waitress to get the right one.
We paid our bill and walked out vowing never to return again.

Our advice: don't waste your time or money! If you want a good Irish pub, go to Doolin's, the Lennox, or Johnny Fox's. They're golden compared to this place.
We've eaten at a lot of pubs in our day and this is the first one we've ever been disgusted with and vowed never to go back!

Tartine Bread and Pies770 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Love It!
Submitted Friday, March 23, 2007 - 4:57pm [Dine in]

I work just down the street and often buy my breakfasts or lunches here. It always smells so fresh and delicious as soon as you walk in. Their Morning Glory muffins are my personal favourite for a quick breakfast. They are always moist and loaded with fresh fruit. I must also recommend their meat pies and the Thursday lunch special : Baked Mac and Cheese served with coleslaw. It's to die for!
I've recently started to buy their bread - it's a little pricey but well worth it! It is sliced upon order and is usually still warm from the oven.
The turkey and chicken sandwiches are quite filling and all made with real meat. Try the cranberry mayonnaise - it adds such a great flavour.
The service is fast and friendly. The place is always clean and inviting.
Tartine is a great little bakery. You'll love it!
