Salted Egg Yolk Croissant and more at Lumiere Cafe

I love the corner of West Broadway and Cambie Street. The area has so many restaurants, coffee shops, and cafes. Today, we visited Lumiere Cafe for the first time, and I was overwhelmed by the number of croissant varieties and buns available.

Large Mocha Frappé and Salted Egg Yolk Croissant

According to their website, they specialize in strong coffee and croissants. So my hubby went for a large Mocha FrappĂ© while I settled on a refreshing Green Tea Lemonade. The temperature is supposed to reach 30°C today, so hanging out at a coffee while enjoying cold beverages seems like a smart choice.

Salted Egg Yolk Croissant from Lumiere Cafe

For croissants, I went for the unique Salted Egg Yolk Croissant and loved the creamy yolk interior, which greatly contrasts the buttery, flaky exterior. Unfortunately, the butter croissant was sold out, so I can't compare it to my favourite from Beaucoup and Mon Pitou.

Garlic & Cheese Bun from Lumiere Cafe

For the bun, I went for the Garlic & Cheese Bun. It's what garlic bread aspires to be: cheesy, garlicky, soft, and melts in your mouth. Can I have a dozen of these?
