Trees Organic is no stranger to me, as I often schedule coffee meet at the centrally-located Granville store. I have also bought its cheesecakes for birthdays before, a bit pricey but they are very good. So when I heard that they are running a promo on National Cheesecake Day on July 30, I jumped on the opportunity to learn more about it.

On Wednesday, July 30, and that day only, all Trees Organic store will be selling their cheesecakes at half price. That means you can get a slice of their cheesecake at the very affordable price of $3.5-$3.75 or a whole cheesecake starting at $10 each.

Talking to the Director of Operations, Chris, I learned that they make their cheesecakes in-house at the Kits location then ship to all other stores. The process takes about 2 days from start to ready-to-serve, so the bakers probably have been quite busy getting ready for National Cheesecake Day, and if they run out, they are out!

In addition to the regular flavours, right now they are featuring the Mango Splash. Not only does it have mango flavour but it also has real mango pieces, I mean big chunks of mango inside the cheesecake. (more…)

A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to the Tasting Plates Gastown Edition. Gastown is a neighbourhood that intrigues me but I never spend enough time exploring. The event offered me an opportunity to re-visit some restaurants while discovering some new ones.

Instead of duplicating my Twitter coverage through the evening of the event, I have taken a different approach with this recap post. I’ve used Storify to build my story using pictures from the event along with additional comment at each stop. Click on the image or link below to check it out. Find out what I liked and what I didn’t like, and what I wished to have done differently on this tour:

Tasting Plates is a good way to explore new and long-standing restaurants in the neighbourhoods. The next one is Tasting Plates Main Street and I hope to see you there!

The first time I walked by the Trees Organic on Granville, the awning that reads “Best Cheesecake in Vancouver” immediately caught my attention. After some research, it was the Province newspaper that crowned them one of the five great places for cheesecake in Vancouver. Having to meet up with a friend over coffee, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and set Trees Organic as our meet-up spot.


Trees Organic promotes that they use organic, fairtrade beans. While I was there, I had a cup of Latte (sorry, no picture). Specialty drinks are tricky to make and the flavours vary from cafe to cafe. I quite enjoyed this latte. The foam was frothy and the coffee itself wasn’t bitter like some other ones. Only wish it’s slightly hotter.

Because I still had dinner plan, I couldn’t enjoy the cheesecake in-store. Instead, I ordered two slices to go: Mango Cheesecake and Mocha Cheesecake. The downside of to-go is that they don’t come with whipped cream. And when I had to travel for an hour before I got home, my cheesecakes melted a little and flopped, and the fridge just couldn’t revive them.
