PappaRoti in Vancouver and they are a popular spot to grab a bun and drink, the chill with friends here. I’ve been here are a few times coming here to grab a coffee and kill time before meeting up with friends. It’s a quiet café where you can just pop open your laptop and work away.
I was invited to give a few of their signature and new items a try.
Their original coffee buns is crisp on the outside with their coffee caramel crust. On the inside is a soft, buttery and rich centre. You must have these when its fresh from the oven.
Bun combos take the original coffee bun and dress it up with some toppings.
Crazy for Kaya has their classic coffee bun paired with kaya and honey. Kaya is a Malaysian coconut jam.
Strawberry Fields has strawberry and whipped cream.
The Classic has nutella and banana, which is a great combination. Who doesn’t like bananas and nutella?
PB & J has the peanut butter drizzle on top of the bun and the jam on the side.
The works is one of my favourites you can choose up to 4 toppings of your choice. This particular one has strawberries, banana, ice cream and whipped cream.
Choco Banana Pappa Rollie is one of their new items on the menu. It is like a croissant, but it is stuffed with a chocolate filling and then topped with the coffee caramel crisp top.
Sandwiches and Wraps
It surprised me how many different sandwiches and wraps they had to offer. The sandwiches aren’t displayed as nicely as you see in the photos, but you can grab them all wrapped up and ready to go in their fridge.
Turkey and Brie was my favourite sandwich as it had a good ratio of the ingredients. Pair it with a tea or coffee and it would make for a nice light lunch.
Apple Chicken blue cheese sandwich was a decent sandwich.
Roast Beef sandwich was good as well since it has a few layer of the tender roast beef.
If you want something a bit more healthy, they have salads – Island Salad and Tuscan Salad.
They have a large selection of coffee and a few of their own tea blends.
Iced Blooming Tea has a blend of Fujian silver needles, Gomphrena Globosa, yellow chrysanthemum, jasmine lily, marigold and carnations. It has a mellow fragrance and a slightly sweet aftertaste.
They also sell Revel Juice, so people can have fresh organic cold pressed juice and nut milks.
I find that most people just come here for coffee buns and drinks. The wraps, sandwiches and salads are a nice addition, but they don’t specialize in that. I find that most office works in the area will grab the sandwiches to go.
