Sherman's Food Adventures: Little Cafe on Robson

Little Cafe on Robson

If you have been on IG or any other social media platform lately, you've probably seen the Supreme Croissants from Little Cafe on Robson.  For those who haven't come across these croissants, think a tightly-wound croissant scroll with flavoured filling and topping.  Now they are more than croissant scrolls though as there are sandwiches as well as hot beverages.  I was able to make it out there earlier enough to try some of their wares since they do sell out later in the day.

Behold, we have the Supreme Croissant in its Mont Blanc form with sweet chestnut cream on top and in the middle.  A roasted chestnut and gold flakes adorn the top of the croissant.  As it appears in the picture, the croissant was crunchy and firm on the outside and soft on the inside.  Beyond the sweetness of the chestnut cream, the outside of the croissant featured a sweet crunchiness.  This thing was pretty large, so sharing it is the best way to go.

I also tried their Blueberry Lavender Supreme Croissant and beyond having the same aforementioned qualities as the Mont Blanc, it was actually sweeter.  I found the blueberry cream to have more sugariness especially combined with the sweet exterior.  Of course it was fruity due to the blueberries, while the lavender added a floral component.  For myself, I prefer fruity things, so this was right up my alley.

Now they have savoury items as well including the Breakfast Supreme with a supreme croissant cut into halves, baked omelette, bacon, cheddar, arugula, tomato, pickled peppers and in this case, ham.  I really enjoyed this as the croissant was crunchy and shattered beautifully.  There was so much ham and crispy bacon that this was super-filling.  This also can easily be shared due to its size.  So while I was at Little Cafe, there was a steady stream of customers snapping up the Supreme Croissants and I can see why they sell out quickly.  Better go early so to not be disappointed.

*All food and beverages were complimentary*

The Good:
- Everything is large here, so yes, prices aren't cheap, but you get a lot
- Crunchy croissants that shatter
- That breakfast croissant is equally good

The Bad:
- Sells out early, need to go early
- It is indeed a little cafe, limited seating
