La Forêt – Burnaby

Saw this place on one of the buzzfood or narcity or vancitybuzz articles. Then it started showing up on my instagram and it seemed like a place I just had to check out – do it for the gram you know? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

V-STAR Rating:

Variety – 8/10 – For a cafe, I would say you get a lot of options. There are some unique items you get with your dish (ie: the black bread) so it is a little intriguing … ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Service – 8/10 – You order at the counter when you walk in and then you pick a place to sit. Oh, they give you a number and you’re supposed to place it on the table that you’re sitting at. When the food is ready, they would bring it out to you. If you only ordered drinks, they will be ready at the drinks counter. I don’t think they bring that out to you for some reason. Efficiency I guess?

Taste – 7.5/10 – I was not really enjoying my waffles for personal reasons, but if I was well, I don’t think I would enjoy them any better than I was. Because they were rough/dry and a little bit salty but I think that’s how it’s supposed to be (since my boyfriend got the leftovers and enjoyed it thoroughly…)

Atmosphere – 8/10 – It is like a giant warehouse/garage that had a huge makeover. The walls, the ceilings, a lot of the interior was very creative and nice. A lot of time and effort was put into the decor. It’s a very hipster, cafe, “I’m very coo being in here” vibes – if you get what I mean… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Reasonably Priced – 7/10 – I think it’s a little overpriced for the majority of the stuff there. I mean, it was like 8 bucks (taxes etc) for 4 small pieces of fluffy PLAIN waffles. I don’t think that’s worth it…

Overall, I would probably still come here again to try their OTHER brunch platters.

yours truly,
