Chicco is a Japanese dessert cafe on Robson Street. I came here a lot when I was a bit younger, but recently I’ve noticed they have undergone a renovation to make better use of the space.
They have a display case to show all their yummy treats to go. Great for gifts.
Strawberry Shortcake has layers of the cake with whipped cream and strawberries. A good fluffy and light dessert.
Green Tea Parfait is an awesome dessert or yourself or to share with another friend. You will find red bean, rice cake, green tea ice cream, whipped cream, melon, grass jelly, frosted corn flakes, green tea mousse, sponge cake and a green tea stick.
I really liked the addition of the melon since it helps balance all the whipped cream. There was a lot of whipped cream, perhaps a bit too much.
How can you say no to this? A good combination of ingredients all in one cup.
They also have a canister of water to have with your dessert. It’s good when eating all the sweet treats here.
Overall, it’s a good place for dessert. There’s not a lot of seating, but the parfait are portable and you can take them to a park or beach to eat.
