Faubourg opened their new location last year in August 2013. It is located right beside the Vancouver Art Gallery and has indoor and patio seating. They also have a location in Kerrisdale and Park Royal in West Vancouver. KoreanGirl and I stopped here for some croissants and a drink. But most importantly, to chill and talk.
The interior is really beautiful and a great place to send the afternoon with friends. Look at those chandeliers.
We came here when it was a little bit snowy outside, but it was nice to get out of the rain/snow.
They have a variety of savoury items great for the lunch time crowd.
There are also some very sweet treats. You might be staring at this section for a while because everything looks good.
Many baked items that smelled amazing. Croissants are definitely very popular here.
Don’t forget to look at their beautiful macarons. So many choices!
Hot Chocolate was our drink of choice. We’ve been definitely having a huge craving for hot chocolate. It was rich and nice and smooth.
Butter Croissant was good too! It was flakey on the corners and soft on the inside.
Small Assorted Pastry Box ($16) was something I grabbed to take home to M. It is a bit pricey, but it makes a great gift. It comes with 4 mini versions of their signature tarts. It has lemon tart, blueberry tart, coffee opera, and chocolate tart. They are all bite-sized and great for people who like a taste.
Overall, we had a good time at Faubourg for a girl chit chat session over drinks and pastries. I’d come back again with friends. The location is also great because it is near skytrain and in the heart of Downtown.
