DINER: On Breaking A Sweet Tooth Fast At The Newly Launched “Thierry” On Alberni

Finally made it over to Thierry, the new atelier/shop from Top Table and long-time CinCin dessert guru Thierry Busset. Outstanding coffee well pulled? Check. Well-heeled clientele accidentally spitting sugar into cell phones? Check. Perfect palmiers, sablés, cigarette tuiles, and all manner of baked goods that will blow you away? Quadruple check! Service was quick and without incident, and the patio was a people watching paradise. If you haven’t been, go.

  1. What a total rip off of Thomas Haas’s Display.For such a supposed Accomplished Pastry Chef couldn’t he come up with his own ideas?Weak.

  2. Thomas Haas did cross my mind when I visited last week. But I wouldn’t dare say one could be much more creative with the displays and packaging when it comes to a patisserie/chocolate atelier. Unless you’re thinking of serving hot chocolate in a golden goblet embossed with Thierry’s logo?

    I enjoyed their rich, buttery and flaky pain au chocolate. Also grabbed a plain croissant for breakfast the next day as well. Though compared with the prices elsewhere (like La Baguette on Granville Island), it seems steep, only justified by its location (read: rent) and ambiance (read: decent seating). Fair enough!
