When walking past the Coffee Bun, had to stop and buy one of these puffy treats as they looked interesting. Couldn't decide which flavour to try, so many choices, but finally selected the vanilla. The filling is very good, and the bun has a soft texture. This was so fun to eat.

Absolutely lovely. Never eaten anything like this before very unique taste/texture. In our group we had the Vanilla & the Oreo both great. Very reasonable price wise and a lovely friendly couple serving.

Coffee Buns are amazing! Conveniently located next to the Lonsdale Sea Bus terminal, so it is easy to grab a bun and a coffee for your journey. The buns are baked fresh and come in lots of sweet and savoury flavours. (I love the maple syrup one, and a plumb tea.) I’ve not found Coffee buns like this anywhere else!... More

Stopped in this little shop on the way to the Seabus. Wow, they sell coffee drinks and coffee buns. The buns are made right there and they are so good! The dough is just like a croissant and they are filled with custard, coconut, etc. They are a great breakfast or snack without being too sweet. Sure wish they had... More

I found this shop by accident last year...now we stop here every time we come to North Van. These amazing little pastries are filled with treats and encrusted with a coffee like crunch. I'll get a dozen to bring home tomorrow.

We love the coffee bun! Every time we visit Vancouver we stop by and grab a few. They are a little on the pricy side for pastries, but they are a great treat.

This is right next to the Sea Bus terminal and is an inexpensive but superlative quick bite to take on the Sea Bus. Great fresh food

The buns here are very special in taste with their harder shell and soft interior, a unique experience. Each day provides a different menu with some traditional favorites (Oreo!) along with daily specials. Good coffee adds to the taste for a delicious breakfast or an afternoon snack. Grab a bagful, choose a table on the Quay and enjoy the sights... More

Oh my goodness. As we were standing outside contemplating going in a stranger walked by and said "gotta try the ice cream bun, it's is delicious". So we listened. OMG there are these buns, all different flavours filled lightly with a filling of your choosing. We tried the cream cheese bun and added ice cream as requested by the stranger.... More

The custard filled Coffee Bun was delicious! Makes my mouth water just thinging about it! Latte was nice too and intimate alternate to the local coffee shops.
