SPRING UPDATE

We’re your secret spot for all things dessert. Our shop is open six days a week (Tuesday-Sunday), and we’re hidden on edges of Mount Pleasant, False Creek, and Strathcona, – just a hop, skip, and a jump from the intersection of Main & Terminal.

Everyday, our shop is fully stocked with chocolate and pastry goods. Our skilled team of pastry cooks make the most delicious croissants and cream puffs around, baked fresh every morning. They also artisically compose desserts in jars, a wickedly popular to-go dessert option for dinner parties, office get-togethers, and your daily enjoyment.

We seek to preserve the best produce we can find. Our marmalades and jams have gained quite the following, and for two-years running, we’ve been lucky recipients of Gold medals at the World’s Original Marmalade Awards in Cumbria, England.

When you stop by our shop, you can see our accomplished chocolatiers at work, through a giant window into our chocolate kitchen.
Adam Chandler, our Pastry Chef and Co-Owner, was recently named one of the Top 10 Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Professional Magazine, and four of our Signature Chocolates along with our Salted Chocolate Caramel were bestowed with some serious accolades at the 2012 International Chocolate Awards.

From crafting our Imperial Stout Chocolate (Awarded Silver at the International Chocolate Awards in London, UK), to coating sun-dried Okanagan Cherries in dark chocolate, to casting our delicious Salty Polygon Bar, our team is always hard at work creating delicious chocolate goodness. Our chocolatiers masterfully transform chocolate from Michel Cluizel (an artisan French chocolate manufacturer who maintains direct relationships with several premium chocolate plantations) with the addition of local, seasonal ingredients to create innovative products that are always changing.

We also run a special little thing called the Chocolate Union, a monthly subscription that provides members with a box of custom chocolates and confections that reflects our imagination, the seasons, and our desire to keep coming up with interesting flavours and forms.

At BETA5, we’re happiest when you ask ‘What’s New’, because we’re always up to something, seeking to push the edges of chocolate and pastry in the name of taste, with the belief that you should always have fun with your food.
