Known for their Parisian gourmet desserts in an elegant setting, Faubourg is a go-to place for Vancouverites to satisfy their sweet tooth. Faubourg’s menu of tasty offerings includes macarons, cakes, signature pastries, viennoiseries, as well as bread and sandwiches. While doing some week-end shopping at Park Royal a few months ago, my family and I decided to stop by Faubourg for some late morning snacks.
Park Royal Location
While I have been to the Faubourg’s Downtown location, it was my first time at the Park Royal cafe. This West Vancouver location is just gorgeous (moreso than the Hornby location): it’s bright, inviting and very welcoming. There are dining tables and high top tables inside with a few tables outside.
I love how you are greeted with a beautiful macaron tower as soon as you enter.
What I Tried
I tried the viennoiserie of the month which was a Danish-style croissant filled with lemon curd and fresh raspberries. It was a scrumptious croissant with a refreshing summertime filling and powdered sugar on the outside.
The pain au chocolate was unfortunately a bit of a disappointment because the outside just wasn’t crispy. It should be just slightly crispy but I just didn’t get that.
The latte had very lovely latte art.
Overall Impression of Faubourg
The interior of Faubourg’s West Vancouver location is really lovely and inviting. The Danish-style croissant I had was tasty but the pain au chocolate really lacked the slightly crispy exterior. Rating: 3.5/5
