The Sweet Treat Trail
1. North Delta
If you’re looking for diversity on your treat trail, North Delta is the place to be. Happy Singh Street Eats is well-known for their extensive menu of shakes, lassis, floats and sodas with flavours that range from tamarand peach and blackberry honey lassis, to creamy shakes blended with your favourite chocolate bars.
The sweet shop at Jagga Sweets is as tantalizing to the eye as it is to the tastebuds. Tray upon tray of colourful, freshly made Indian sweets stretch the length of the store with favourites selling out early in the day.
North Delta’s Krispy Kreme Doughnut location is the only one in BC, making it a favourite destination for those addicted to their fried in-house, doughnutty goodness.
Those on the cold and creamy side of the dessert debate can have it their way at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. With dozens of flavours and toppings to choose from, making your treat is half the fun!
If you like your dessert with a little ambiance, a late night date with a slice of chocolate lava cake or key lime pie at the Cactus Club Cafe on Scott Road may be just what you’re looking for – along with two forks!
The Chocolate Bear Shoppe has been serving up decadent chocolates for more than 30 years. It’s also where you’ll find gummies, salt water taffy, jelly beans, liquorice, and other delights that will have the little ones tugging at your sleeves.
On a hot, summer day locals line up for the cones, sundaes and shakes at the local Dairy Queen. And at any time of year you’ll find them at L’aromas Bakehouse, on the hunt for pain au chocolat, fruit danishes or a sweet roll for their morning coffee, or across the road at Tim Hortens with a box of Timbits in one hand, and the aforementioned coffee in the other.
When you’ve got a range of tastes to satisfy, the White Spot is a tried and true solution, with a dessert menu that includes shakes, cheesecake, sundaes and pies. And date night at Brown’s Social House is sure to involve a warm, double chocolate brownie or the Oreo cheesecake-in-a-jar.
Locals in the know arrive early at Boca Grande Donut Shop and Gourmand Macaron in Ladner to grab a selection of their favourite baked goods. Boca offers small-batch, handcrafted doughnuts in unique flavours like Oreo, Netflix n Chill, and Chai Sugar, while Gourmand Macaron’s colourful, delicate macarons supply locations across Vancouver. The French bakery also sells other classics such as pain au chocolate, tarts, and flakey croissants in a range of flavors. Check the websites of both businesses for their opening hours.
Another entry on the house-made list of delights, is the freshly made baklava at Lara’s Cuisine – order by the piece or by the tray.
Ladner has no shortage of long-time bakeries, and is home to both Delta Bakery and Richlea Bakery. The apple strudel and cupcakes are a favourite at Delta, while Richlea is known for its cakes, squares, and gluten-free options.
And if you’re looking for handmade chocolates, the confections at Ladner Artisan Chocolates are sure to please, from their signature handpainted truffles, which make an impressive gift, to classic truffle flavours like lemon, salted caramel, and strawberry balsamic.
