Top five places to get Easter Treats in Vancouver

Easter Treats #1: Nottes Bon Ton, Vancouver, BC

You don’t even need the excuse of Easter to drop by this amazing little pastry shop. Bon Ton’s carries some one Vancouver’s most beautifully crafted chocolate Easter eggs. If you’re looking for something a little less chocolatey, try one of their delicious layered cakes. My favourite is the religion or diplomat cake. You can also check out their tea room where you can enjoy some tea and a few tiers of delicious French and Italian cakes.
