Fondway Cafe is the latest cafe to open up in South Burnaby right by Metrotown. It is literally a few steps away from the skytrain. They specialize in coffee, tea and asian-inspired pastries.
The space is quite nice with a lot of natural light coming in. Very hip.
They have a Chinese and English menu available. At first I grabbed their Chinese menu and had no idea what I was reading. I’m such an asian disgrace.
They have a pretty large collection of tea along one of their walls.
During peak hours, it’s pretty hard to find a seat. It’s getting quite popular.
Once you order and pay, you get a giant clip with your order number.
Milk tea with grass jelly is served in a super cute cup. The drink wasn’t too sweet, which was great. It tasted pretty awesome and it definitely rivals some of the best milk teas in town.
Cheesecake with burnt sugar on top was a dense type of cheesecake. Not too sweet which caters to the asian tastebuds.
My friends got their Okinawa milk tea and they though it was pretty good.
What more could you want? Girl talk, milk tea and cake. Best combination ever.
If you are a coffee lover, you may want to try some of their specialty coffee drinks like their cold brew on tap and their soda coffee.
Overall, I love the space and its a great place to chill with friends. You definitely have to grab a slice of cake and milk tea when you’re here.
