Bella Candela109 West Esplanade, North Vancouver
Beautiful location, food so so, service too
Submitted Monday, December 10, 2007 - 5:32pm [Dine in]

We decided to try this place out for their new so called "Brunch". We arrived, were the only ones there, it's a beautiful location with great ambiance. Sat down, waitress arrives dressed poorly, and begins to tell us all the things on the menu that they don't have. This amounted to at least 3 dishes on their already small brunch menu that the didn't have. Basically anything that was lunch... no salmon, no yogurt, no apple juice.. etc...

So, this leaves us with only breakfast items. My daughter ordered a crepe with fruit and powdered sugar. The crepe arrives with honey drizzled over it but no powdered sugar.

WE ordered poached eggs, they were so vinegary that they were almost in-edible, the bacon was undercooked, and though it said it came with country potatoes or hash browns, it came with one potato cut into four pieces and fried. We had to keep asking for cream for our coffee.

We had to ask them to make another crepe since my daughter couldn't eat it with all the honey drizzled on it.

In the end we paid $49 for a less than mediocre meal. Very dissapointing.

Next time we'll stick with the places we know are good. Like the Arms REach Bistro, or the Northlands Golf Course.

Thomas Haas Chocolates & Patisserie998 Harbourside, #128, North Vancouver
The best pastries/chocolates in The lower mainland

I have lived in Vancouver for 10 years, but am French, and have also lived in Montreal for a number of years. Thank god for Thomas Haas! He has brought REAL croissants to Vancouver. His chocolate is also incredible. This man is a true artist. He makes his own chocolate, he is a master chocolatier. His pastries are also excellent and the artistry on his pastries is beyond what I have ever seen at the best pastisseries in Montreal.

I have yet to have something even mediocre from him. However if you are not a lover of chocolate then don't bother going.

The service there is fantastic and often Thomas is there greeting people with a huge smile on his face.

The only downside, is that it is incredibly small, so going and having a coffee in a relaxed atmosphere is not really possible unless you go early on a weekday. It is always packed in there.

I find his prices very reasonable. Can you tell I'm a regular?
