To be honest, Yaletown is not my favourite Vancouver neighbourhood. That said, I seem to be alone in this feeling as most of my friends live and love the ‘hood. So, I do get to Yaletown once in a while.
But, there’s FINALLY a fantastic reason to go! I ordered a Chocolat-Banane cake from Ganache the other day and it had to be one of the best cakes I’ve tasted from Vancouver dessert shops. Moist, smooth texture, and a perfect balance of chocolate and banana. They must use a good mix of bittersweet and semi-sweet as the chocolate was not too sweet at all. I went around telling everyone how fantastic the cake was. Everyone LOVED it.
I ordered a huge slab for $100, which fed about 35 people. However, you can also order their cakes by the slice at the store for a mini-treat. My friends say they go often, too often.
