Trees Organic Cafe (Gastown)
Boasting the title of the cafe with “the best cheesecake in Vancouver), Trees Organic Cafe is a pretty nice coffee shop. I had been a frequent customer of the Granville and West Hastings location, up until when I discovered that there was another location in Gastown (on Water Street). Minna took me there for cheesecake and coffee. We weren’t disappointed.
The cheesecake (and yes, I know – I’m weird – I *hate* cheese but *love* cheesecake) is definitely to-die-for. The decor at Trees Organic Cafe is pretty nice, and I have enjoyed a couple of evenings there just alone (ironically, always bumping into a well-dressed young blond guy who is reading on his iPad). While there is free wifi, I found it spotty and at times I couldn’t connect. Overall, lovely cafe.
The cheesecake, at $6.50 is pretty pricey compared to other places, but definitely must be consumed with gusto. I will definitely come back.
