Round 2 with Anita (la petite foodie) at what seems like our girl-chat headquarters, Bel Cafe at Hotel Georgia!

Latte latte latte!  Smooth, creamy and warm.  Comfy, cozy and bitter-sweet 🙂

I ordered the Pear Vanilla Danish along side my velvety latte. Look how pretty it is~!!

Perfectly flaky and crispy with a delicious soft-ish crumble on top encasing beautifully sweet, soft pear with that undeniably creamy-smooth flavor of vanilla balanced in to the danish.

After brunch wih Rachel I headed out to downtown Vancouver to meet up with darling Anita aka Petite Foodie  for some tea, nibbles and girl-talk! Seeing as how I am obsessed with Hotel Georgia she suggested we meet at one of her regular haunts, Bel Cafe at the hotel.

It’s a small-ish cafe with modern, clean esthetics and delicate and whimsical sensibility yet not at all stand-offish or pretentious. In other words, a delight! Along with my glass of iced White Tea with Pear I had a few housemade macarons: Salted Caramel, Black Sesame & Yuzu, and Rose & Raspberry. Delectably light and floral and so very decadent! These macarons had the perfect crisp exterior with a lightly chewy interior with pillowy soft cream in between. Love at first bite!

Anita was just coming out of a yoga class, so she wanted something a little more substantial.  She had the Roasted Tomato Soup with thai chili served with 2 tiny little cheddar gougeres.  She really seemed to enjoy the soup.  Ate it with much gusto 😉

 

 

I have to say, David Hawksworth never ceases to delight me with his wonderful food.  There’s such a light touch with an elegant flair and such a creative fusion of flavors.  Absolute love!
