Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe is located on Fir St / 6th. Just before Granville Island situates a small bakery filled with pastries, 49th Parallel coffee and charm. You will recognize it by its red and white floral mural and a flock of loyal crowds. Jackie Ellis, who previously owned a design firm turned her passion of baking into reality by opening Beaucoup.
Instagram brought me to its creation of granite countertops to daily creations of chocolate rosemary cookie, almond croissant, pain au chocolate, etc. On a Sunday 1pm afternoon, there is not one seat in sight.
Lavender Earl Grey Ice Cream Macaron Sandwich (Beaucoup x Sunday Morning Ice Cream): This gourmet dessert treat was high sky of near $7 a piece. And even tho the sweltering heat of Vancouver summers (not complaining here!) nearly melted my ice cream, you could smell and taste the deep Earl Grey tea and lavender flavors. The macaron shell was soft and delicate with a nice crunch. What a treat.
Perhaps one day I can embark on those Paris Tours tasting through patisseries in Paree.
