March 23rd, 2013. Capstone Tea & Fondue
Since we couldn’t sit down for teas and treats at Soirette we headed over to Capstone Tea & Fondue on Robson instead. Nab just started working here as the manager and I wanted to be supportive of his new job.
With a clean, white and green color scheme and plenty of efficient seating space for a small cafe. Capstone offers variations of tea and tea lattes to accompany the chocolate and cheese fondues.
Since we’re sweet, we went the sweet route with the Chocolate Fondue Sampler 😉 The café states that they offer 56% semi-sweet Blegian dark chocolate for dipping.
I was surprised to find out that all their pastries and baked goods are made in house. Delicious little biscuits, moist cakes, I probably could have just eaten a whole plate of just that!
The fruit is your usual fare. The grapes were slightly difficult to dip because it was so slippery and the skewer kept bouncing off, but I loved the strawberries and pineapple 😀
We also ordered an add-on side of the ice cream truffles and cheesecake truffles!
The fun part was the different kinds of toppings we could roll our fondue dipped treats in! Compliments of the house 😀
The chocolate had a sort of sheen and coated the items well. We were definitely having fun dipping and noshing on the abundance of goodies!
I worried that the ice cream truffles would melt too quickly, but it didn’t turn out to be a problem 🙂
How much fun did we have? Lots of fun! The establishment was constantly busy the whole time we were there and the atmosphere was nice and cheerful 🙂 We had really fun time!
