looks great - and that's it.

My friend and I had high tea here today. We opted for the largest high tea option. It was tiny! HUGE rip-off. I only felt full afterward because my stomach ached from the huge amount of sugar.
First, there were three tiny sandwiches cut in half for the two of us to share. They were completely stale.
The scones (only one small one each!) came with a jar of jam and - instead of devonshire cream - WHIPPED CREAM. I was speechless.
The desserts were more than the sandwiches and scones combined, which I don't like; I tend to enjoy the sandwiches/scones portion the most at high tea. But I guess that's just me. The desserts were the tastiest part, but still mediocre at best.
Overall, this place looks very nice, and all of the food looks very nice. But that's about as far as it goes.
I recommend Secret Garden Tea Company in Kerrisdale for better seating, service, portions, and taste!

The milk teas here are powdery and flavourless. Several times I've had nearly-raw, chalky pearls in my drinks. Other times they're overcooked and mushy. I didn't know it was that hard to cook pearls...if it's not done, don't serve it. Plenty of other bubble tea places won't serve pearls when they're not ready.

After coming back from Paris, I've been looking for places that'll do a good croissant, believing it to be impossible. Well, COBS doesn't really come close to Paris but it does give me that flaky buttery taste I'm looking for. Their ham & cheese and chocolate croissants are good as well. Try the white chocolate berry scone!
Great staff, all very efficient and friendly.

Bocconcino Deli2233 W 41st Avenue, Vancouver
good neighbourhood deli

I work right across the street from here, so it's a convenient place for me to grab lunch on my breaks.
Lunch specials differ from day to day, and some days are better than others. Wednesdays cabbage rolls are great. Thursdays Mac & Cheese and Lasagna are also good. Good prices.
They make sandwiches to order and they LOAD it with meat, which is awesome. Service is good, the girls who work there are all very nice. Ambiance = 2 because it is a deli, after all.

BBT Cafe5979 West Boulevard, Vancouver
consistently terrible service
Submitted Sunday, April 5, 2009 - 12:20am [Dine in]

I keep going back to this place because it is close to where I work, but I hate the service each time I go. I know of one friendly/competent server amidst several incompetent/rude servers. There is one girl who seems to always be working, who gives attitude to customers. Once I heard her talking to her coworker a few feet away about me in Mandarin, obviously unaware that I could understand her.
Food is OK - definitely not high quality, as reflected by the price - I suggest you stick to the staple Taiwanese dishes that you can't really screw up (Taiwanese Fried Chicken w/ Rice, for example).
