Le Marche St. George – Vancouver
Oh la la!!! Mes amours!!!!! Come join us on our jaunt to Vancouver’s hidden gem, Parisian cafe – Le Marche St. George!!!!
Although my mother + sister have already departed Vancouver for the sunny shores of Los Angeles, I will continue to post a couple of adventures that we enjoyed during their visit!
I have been literally dying to descend upon Le Marche St. George since I read about the Parisian-style cafe + grocery on Remodelista – a lifestyle website which Jeff + I discovered by drooling over their display table at the 2012 Dwell on Design show in June.
My sister is a major sucker for rustic European romanticism, so allons-y!!!!!!!
Here’s a little Amelie shout-out for all mes petites Francophiles out there….
By the way, the cafe is on the corner of a majorly random + quiet residential street – which creates a sense that you have arrived to a very amazingly secret place!
Yummy Vancouver company, Earnest Ice Cream in the freezer. Whiskey Hazelnut? Pumpkin Pie? Cognac??? I’ve gots to try me some of this rich goodness next time!
So charming on vintage serving ware + china!
My mom asked the ladies working at the cafe, “What’s the least fattening thing to eat here???”. The young hipster girl politely replied, “Uuuuuuum….we’re a French cafe…..so everything here is pretty much full of butter……”. Wooooo!!! Bring it on!!! The croissants were buttery, flaky goodness!!!
We three ladies were happy, warm + full when we left!!!
Le Marche St. George makes me feel so tingly in my heart when thinking about places that I adore about Vancouver!!! Total score!!!! I definitely will be taking my time with a warm cup of tea, a croissant + a book (Kindle) on my next visit!! Thank you St. George for being such a lovingly curated piece of Parisian goodness!!!!!
