Location: 3195 Heather Street, Vancouver, BC
This is a neighbourhood gem of a place. It's not a brunch place but more of a grab a small bite and coffee. When I first stepped foot into place I took a moment to question, am I at the right place cause this looks like a bike repair shop. But then if you take a look to the right, that's where the coffee and pastries are served, hence the name Tandem Bike Cafe (half bike repair shop half cafe).
First off, coffee was good, not sure which beans they use but it was to my liking. But the star... if you're going to go to Tandem Bike Cafe, you MUST GET THE CINNAMON BUN. Especially if you like gooey cinnamon buns, it is AMAZING. It doesn't have a lot of layers like Solly's but it's more traditional and very evenly balanced in terms of the sweetness.
Please note, on Saturdays, they open from 10am-4pm which is kind of strange for a Saturday. I'm here waiting for it to open right now. Also closed on Sundays.
