Trafiq Cafe & Bakery

4216 Main Street, Vancouver, BC

Food Rating: 9.5/10

I’ve passed by this cafe tons of times, but to be honest, the outside never looked appealing to me, and I never googled the place! (Bad foodie/blogger move!) I’ve learned the lesson, “don’t judge a book by its cover” thousands of times, but because food (and restaurant) aesthetic is important to me, I kept procrastinating googling Trafiq. Lesson learned. Again. After hearing great reviews of their cake from some of my foodie friends, I decided to give it a try. Now I’m kicking myself for the years of amazing cake I missed out on!

A couple things you should know:

Two of my most favourite flavours in the world are early grey and lavender.

I’m super picky about cake. Dry cake or cupcakes are a pet peeve of mine. I think cakes should be moist and easy to swallow! So when I tried Trafiq’s super moist, super flavourful and what I think is the perfect cake:icing ratio, I was so excited I went back to Trafiq three weeks in a row! I wanted to share this cake with everyone I knew!
