On a ruthless rain-day we madly dashed into Faubourg Paris in Kerrisdale after being turned away from The Secret Garden. It was a Sunday, and well, high tea, dearie, you must simply book weeeelll in advance. So by chance, we walked into Faubourg which is located on 41st Avenue in Kerrisdale village on the south side. They have a small patio outside which on this rain-lashing day was empty.
The variety of goodies here was delicious. We were tempted by the sandwiches, the pastries, the cakes and finally by the macarons. We ended up eating pastries and having a cappuccino and a London fog tea latte. We almost had the cafe to ourselves but then around 1:30 it started to fill up with people buying cakes. And we discovered they have a bistro area in the back, very nice. Simple decor with one big painting on the back wall to make you think you had stepped into something Parisian. Well, we stepped out with a box of macarons and brought a little Parisian sweetness home!
