Warning: These favourite dessert shops in Coquitlam will hit the sweet spot!

Whether you’re looking for a place to treat your kid, or simply to satisfy your own sweet tooth, these amazing places each offer something unique.

Now easily reachable by SkyTrain, Coquitlamites can no longer keep their coveted eateries secret. Whether you are looking for a buzzy café to meet up with friends, or something a bit different to tempt your taste buds, you might want to bookmark this page and work your way down the list.

10 Must-Try Coquitlam Dessert Spots

High Tea at Cakes N Sweets

Cakes N Sweets

High Tea is served in the traditional British manner, featuring buttermilk scones with jam and Devonshire cream, as well as posh sandwiches, an array of desserts and more (reservations are required). Or drop in for freshly made cake pops, French macarons, cupcakes or cakes that are almost too beautiful to eat. This delightful shop is located on Barnet Highway, a short walk from Coquitlam Centre.

Bubble waffle at Cupping 8 Cafe

Cupping 8 Café

Although this dessert shop has only been open a few months, word of mouth is spreading fast. It specializes in tofu cheesecakes, which originated in Japan, and let’s just say these delicious treats are flying out of the display case. The taste is light and creamy – not rich and high calorie, like a typical cheesecake – with a variety of flavours ranging from mango to organic green tea, 75% chocolate, Americano (made with real espresso), and fresh durian. It’s located near SkyTrain and Coquitlam Centre.

Soft Peaks ice cream at Cup Full Dessert Café

Cup Full Dessert Café

If you haven’t paid Henderson Place Mall’s food court a visit lately, here’s yet another reason. Located across the street from Lincoln SkyTrain station, head into the mall and up the stairs to this delectable café. You’ll find Korean shaved ice bingsoo, baked pastries, Soft Peaks ice cream and coffee from Republica Coffee Roasters, all presented with style and all absolutely delicious.

A feast at Miracle Belgian Waffle

Miracle Belgian Waffle

Picture a freshly baked waffle topped with ice cream, whip cream and your favourite fruit. Mmm… The menu offers a wide variety of flavours as well as quality coffees and teas. This restaurant, located on the foodie strip of Glen Drive near Coquitlam Centre, is open from brunch until 11:00pm for those late-night sweet cravings.

Saemaul Rice Dessert Café

Behind its unassuming exterior on Lougheed Highway near Ikea is this new Korean dessert shop with many enticing dishes. One highlight is the homemade rice flour waffles, although a quick glance through their Facebook page and you might be tempted to try a bit of everything, from rice cake churros to rice roll cakes and snow ice flakes.

Treats from Coffee + Vanilla

Choco Coo

“A sip of hot chocolate and a bite of soothing dessert, you’ll find yourself in a state of ecstasy,” reads the website. This cozy Belgian chocolate and French dessert shop on North Road, near Lougheed Town Centre, is a popular study spot and stylish meeting place. You’ll find a huge selection of drinks, from Belgian mochas and mango slushes and green tea lattes, but it’s the desserts that really take the cake: think Oreo cheesecake, matcha tiramisu, strawberry roll.

Treats from Coffee + Vanilla

Coffee + Vanilla

This super cute café is a stylish spot to catch up with friends over a coffee and treats. Not yet one year old, this charming hot spot is located in Coquitlam’s Austin Heights neighbourhood. You’ll find in-house baked goods including everything from house-made marshmallows to quaint macarons, tasty cookies and pastries, not to mention a wide selection of coffees and teas.

Snowy Village

One of the newest additions to Coquitlam’s dessert scene, the offerings at Snowy Village are as tasty as they look. And they look pretty spectacular. They specialize in bingsoo, which includes snowflake shaved ice topped with sweetened condensed milk, whip or ice cream, and your choice of fruit or sweet topping. It’s a short walk from SkyTrain or Coquitlam Centre.

Custom cupcake designs at Clever Cupcakes

The Clever Cupcakes

There’s just something about cupcakes that induces toothy grins. Maybe it’s the generous dollop of icing begging to be licked off the top, or perhaps it’s the bright colours or creative flavours that make them fun and curiously experimental. Whatever the case, The Clever Cupcakes is tempting for both kids and adults, with a delicious gluten-free option. The shop is near Coquitlam Centre and Lincoln SkyTrain station.

Marble Slab Creamery

Spring is here – let’s eat ice cream. All the products at Marble Slab are made fresh in-store with real Canadian dairy. They offer more than 50 flavours of ice cream, with 20 mix-ins including nuts, candy, fruit or chocolate.
