Trees Cafe Helps Vancouver Charity Celebrate Holidays

Trees Organic coffee cheesecake Vancouver RichmondThe holiday season is a time of good cheer, but those in Vancouver who are living on the margins still need the help of their neighbors. Trees Organic café was proud to provide cheesecake dessert and coffee for the Christmas dinner of La Bousolle (The Compass), a Vancouver-based community support and welfare center serving francophones who are poor and facing multiple barriers.

This organization is the only francophone non-profit in Vancouver serving those in need of housing, legal aid, employment, social intervention and mental health supports. Thanks again to everyone who volunteered to help make the holiday season in Vancouver a great time for everyone.

Some Positive Reviews from Trees’ Customers

Trees Organic Vancouver Richmond cafe coffeeshop cheesecake cateringWe love it when reviewers, bloggers, Tweeps, Yelpers and foodies of all stripes have nice things to say about our café. It seems people really like our lattes, cheesecake and more; from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the things our customers have been saying about Trees Organic cafes in Vancouver and Richmond:

They seem to like our cheesecake:

“Trees Organic Coffee & Roasting House is a nice relaxing café serving good quality coffee and some pretty yummy treats. After much consideration, Chris and I finally decided on which two cheesecakes to try – the Sin and the Blueberry. The Sin Cheesecake is made with Belgian chocolate and sour cherries. At first, I was a bit hesitant to try this one because I’m not a big fan of sour cherries. However, this cake is rightfully named for being “sinfully” delicious. The sweet and tart cherries gave the cheesecake a good level of moisture, making the cake just that much more fluffy. And the chocolate made the cake super smooth and silky. The consistency and sweetness of the cheesecake was just perfect! Mmmm, yummy!”

First, about the scones:

“While Trees doesn’t have any vegan cheesecake, it does sell a vegan scone. And a fine scone it is, too. It seems to have the flavour of both a cinnamon-sugar donut and a cinnamon roll. Packed with pumpkin seeds, raisins, and dried apricots, it’s made with whole-wheat flour, so it packs quite an iron-rich punch. It also has a perfect moistness and texture that would convince any scone aficionado that it wasn’t vegan.”

Our beverages also seemed to be a hit (well, you’d kind of hope so! We’re a café, after all):

“While we’re discussing lattes, we’d like to say that whatever blend Trees uses for its decaf lattes is quite nice.”

“I only discovered Trees recently, as they have a small, but fresh, menu. Their specialty is cheesecake, and supposedly the best in Vancouver. But they also make homemade quiche, soup, and huge variety of unique sandwiches and baked goods.

So far, so good. And our quiche and sandwiches have a lot of personality:

The quiche comes in two types: Ham & Cheddar or Spinach & Feta. Simple maybe, but boring no. The crust is homemade and it comes with a small side salad that has dried cranberries, pumpkin & sunflower seeds. The sandwiches, which I have yet to try, are on fresh baguettes, warmed and with unique ingredients, such as Bocconcini, Tomato & Basil, or a vegetarian with Chevre, Basil, Capers and Roasted Pepper.”
