  • Marble Slab Creamery
    The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests' senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store's staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company's founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery's signature sweet-cream ice cream. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer's choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized mélange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes. Catering is available at many locations.

  • Marble Slab Creamery Richmond
    The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone. In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.

  • Brain Freeze
    Father-and-daughter team Bob and Trish wanted their shop, Brain Freeze, to be about more than just frozen yogurt. They had eaten in froyo shops before and were disappointed in the lack of variety and uninspired plastic decor. So, with their combined creativity, they turned Brain Freeze into an experience. Start by picking your favorite frozen dessert and pile on your choice of more than 150+ toppings including Popping Bobas, peanut brittle, five kinds of chocolate chips, mini donuts, and rocky road brownies. With a miniature sugar mountain in hand, you then plop down in their retro 1950's-style diner lounge, complete with neon lights and a jukebox.This frozen dessert bar also offers sorbet vegan dole whips, ice cream and malts as well as a two special frozen dessert flavors that rotate constantly.

  • Solly's Bagelry Ltd
    In March of 2014, Vancouver institution Solly’s Bagelry celebrated its 20th year of serving its signature Brooklyn-style bagels. In honor of the anniversary, we spoke with the founder and current owner Leah Markovitch about how she kept true to her grandmother's traditional recipes over the course of two decades. Bohemian Spirit Solly’s Bagelry exudes a homespun charm. Markovitch describes the delis as places where people could feel comfortable kicking off their shoes and relaxing. The antique furniture, mismatched sets of chairs, and soundtracks of old jazz and Jewish songs exemplify Solly’s Bagelry's laid-back and nostalgic spirit. What's Not To Like? Markovitch grew up baking and cooking alongside her grandmother, who taught her to create traditional Old-Country meals with simple but flavorful ingredients. When faced with an unfamiliar dish, Markovitch would ask her grandmother, "Will I like this?", and she invariably received the same response: "What's not to like?" Solly’s Bagelry continues to use many of Markovitch's grandmother's generations-old recipes today, making everything from challah to knishes from scratch. None of the dishes can be considered haute cuisine or upscale street foods, but they emphatically aren't meant to. Instead, Markovitch says that her grandmother's family recipes showcase the sort of flavors that can only come from rustic, traditional home cooking. "What's not to like?" now serves as a slogan at Solly’s Bagelry. The Bagels Taking inspiration from the Jewish delis of Brooklyn, Solly’s Bagelry boils and hand-rolls more than a dozen styles of bagels, which move straight from the deck ovens to the display cases. This style of bagel is famous for its texture, which is noticeably chewier than many deli or café bagels. Although they might seem different at first, Markovitch recommends trying one of these signature creations "if you want to taste tradition." Artistic License Markovitch recognizes how fortunate she is to have access to butter, chocolate, and other ingredients that would have been considered luxurious delicacies for past generations of Eastern Europeans. She uses these ingredients to add richer and heartier flavors to certain creations, and she even takes a bit of artistic license by creating inventive items, such as samosa knishes and chocolate matzah. However, she is quick to point out that, even when experimenting, Solly’s Bagelry never strays too far from the original recipes, and tradition is still the baseline. Some of the items' flavors may have changed a bit, but Markovitch says, "there's not too much that my grandmother would be surprised at."

  • Mancakes Bakery
    Forget sporting a handlebar moustache or training a hawk to detail your car—eating a cupcake is the epitome of manliness. For proof, look no further than the creations at Mancakes Bakery, each iced with a signature "M" atop its perfectly baked base. Started by three self-described "Vancouver guys," the bakery eschews unnecessary icing or superfluous decorations. Instead, they focus on flavour. The bakers brainstorm endlessly, then test different cupcake combinations until the best make it into a daily rotation of at least 11 varieties. These treats aren't exclusive to a specific gender, of course, but the crafters expect all customers to have the same response to his or her first bite: "man." Baked fresh each day, the selection of cupcakes includes the chocolate and banana King Kong and the Rum and Coke, a vanilla cake filled with cola cream and topped in rum buttercream. Others desserts delve into previously uncharted taste territory. Take the Buffalo Wing, for example: a spiced cupcake loaded with tangy blue cheese mousse and crowned with hot sauce buttercream and crispy chicken crumble. These unconventional combinations—not to mention tongue-in-cheek branding—has garnered Mancakes Bakery ample press attention, including a feature on CNN's iReport. And as befits any bakery worth its chest hair, Mancakes is the only shop in Vancouver to serve Deathwish Coffee, a roast that's purportedly twice as strong as any other on the market.
