Join us for a dessert oriented tasting tour at a selection of restaurants, cafes and food spots in Vancouver.

You know what’s even better than a bar crawl? A DESSERT crawl.

Yes, you heard that right. Instead of hopping from bar to bar grabbing drinks, the perfect Vancouver spring/summer activity is hopping from restaurant to doughnut shop to ice cream parlor—and trying every sweet (and savoury) treat along the way.

Each restaurant, cafe and food spot will be serving sweet and savoury treats for guests to enjoy and you will have a chance to visit different types of food establishments throughout the event, and learn about each of the participating places.

Visit each of the participating cafes and food spots at your leisure by car or transit.

If you haven’t been to our previous Tasting Plates events, Novus TV featured one of our previous events on City Lights (view here).
