Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
I wanted to like this place a lot more than I really did.

When I walked by this place the first time the ambience was intriguing, and it is an excellent concept. It took me three months to get around to finally going there.

The overall strength of this place is the ambience. Part of that atmosphere, by the way, is fellow patrons oohing and aahing over whatever it was that you ordered, so don't go there if you have privacy issues. But the lighting, chairs, interior decor - all fantastic.

The service was technically slow, but to be honest that's just fine as in a place like that if you're hurrying then you're missing the point.

That said, my wife ordered the "white hot chocolate" and I had a chai. The chocolate was oddly presented - in a martini glass - and tasted essentially like a melted chocolate bar. It may have been that, in fact, as it was also quite a small serving. The chai was not even, I'm afraid, as good as something I'd toss off at home.

I really, really wanted to like it. I tried. The desert, by the way, was good. A good, solid, unpretentious, benign "good." It was like the...Lexus...of desserts: essentially higher-average quality presented in a top end packaging. If you'd had the same dessert at White Spot you wouldn't have said, "what is this doing here!"

Nice Cafe154 East 8th Ave, Vancouver
Good neighborhood spot - don't expect too much though.

I read the reviews here and then went to visit the Nice Cafe. Just like everyone said I would, I found the food to be excellent for what it is and quite well priced. The hostess - is she the owner? - could charm the needles off aGood neighborhood spot - don't g pine tree.

Word to the wise, however, not to expect much off the menu that isn't right down the heart of what they do. For example, I ordered a milk shake that was vaguely cool and completely fluid. The $4 fruit bowl was literally a half cup total of cut pear, apple and two or three orange sections.

Keep with the diner style breakfasts and a club sandwich though and you're golden. Can't beat it on Main Street.
