Easter Treats 2021

Easter is just around the corner and these local vendors have some exciting Easter treats planned for everyone. They all look amazing – I think we might have to get them all!

Cupcakes

Cupcakes is a place where you find the comforts of freshly baked goods and take a moment to pause and enjoy. We celebrate sunny days, rainy days, Mondays, Birthdays, and everything else in between. Our focus starts with a perfectly made treat, but our care continues beyond. It’s about friendship, positivity and connection.

We offer cupcakes and cakes. Our products are fresh and handmade daily from scratch. We never use preservatives and additives. And, we source only the best local ingredients whenever possible. To keep things fun, we always create seasonal flavours to try!

La Glace

La Glace is an award winning, premier line of French ice cream in Vancouver and voted best ice cream in Metro Vancouver in 2019.

All our ice cream is made from scratch, composed of a crème anglaise base; a thick custard of egg yolks & heavy cream. The end result – an ice cream that has little aeration making it a rich and decadent experience.

La Glace is made for the dreamer – the romantic who desires to indulge in life’s simplest yet most rewarding pleasures.

So goes our mantra – “All things are better when shared with someone cherished;” and all are invited to indulge.

For An Extra Treat During Spring Break – Dinner at Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar

Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar

With Spring Break just around the corner, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar launches its first-ever Kids’ Menu. This collection of elevated yet familiar bites is designed to thrill and excite while exhibiting the uncompromising Boulevard standard to which its patrons have come to expect. Executive Chef Roger Ma’s newest offering is sure to impress Vancouver’s younger diners and its future foodies. “We set out to create a menu so families have plenty of approachable yet delicious options; it has been a lot of fun to create,” shares Ma.   

The new menu inspired by General Manager JP Potter’s daughter Jamie, highlights family favourites prepared to perfection. The three-course menu features classic kid-approved options made with premium ingredients such as the BLVD JR Burger, Linguini and Meatballs, Chicken Fingers and Fries, Steak Frites and other classics.  For dessert, Canada’s Best Pastry Chef 2020, Chef Kenta Takahashi, presents a show-stopping interactive ice cream bowl that ignites excitement to both the children and adults at the table. Skip the soda, a collection of mocktails, allow junior diners to explore new flavours and join in on the fine dining experience with their families.   

While the award-winning team developed the menu, they reminisced on preferred plates from their childhood, how to perfect them and what elements to preserve. For Ma, the soft bun burger was always his go-to; Potters had an appetite for pasta and meatballs. These plates are a celebration of the simple childhood joys made with care and great ingredients – along with a few more indulgent dishes for those little gourmands. 

The menu can be enjoyed as a 3 course, $39 experience or a la carte. Reservations can be made by calling 604-642-2900 or via OpenTable.
