Tea time Break @ Trees Organic Coffee

After being told that Trees Organic Coffee is famous for their cheesecakes in Vancouver, I went by the Richmond location couple weeks ago to get a cake to motivate my studying.

The main cafe is in Gastown, Vancouver. However, living in Richmond, I was lucky that a Trees Organic Coffee is located just right outside the entrance of the Richmond Public Library. Although their location in Vancouver is an actual shop, in Richmond, it is a cart. It is a fairly good location because people can purchase something to drink from them, then bring it to the library and enjoy sipping on something hot while reading or studying.

I ordered a slice of New York Cheesecake ($5.75) and a small cup of hot apple cider ($2.30).


Their cheesecake was voted best in Vancouver, so I was extremely excited to pig out on it.It was refreshing, and it just melts in your mouth. It wasn’t overpowering cheesy or sweet, but I wish it was less “thick/creamy.” I like my cheesecakes with a bit of “air” in them.   It was a fairly big slice and I brought half of it home to munch on later. I did especially like the crust of the cake. But, for $5.75, it is not worth the price. I have tried better and I wouldn’t name it the best cheesecake I ever tried. Sorry :( I still like the souffle-styled cheesecakes better.

I also had the apple cider. It was fairly tasty and it gave me that “cozy feel” , but I wish there was more cinnamon flavour to it.

Nonetheless, this little treat was a great study booster to accompany my miserable Philosophy readings.
