You may not know this about me, but I wasn’t born Vancouver Coffee Snob. My actual name is Thomas.

As such, I thought I would have a real connection with Thomas Haas Chocolates. It turns out that ordering 15 things then proclaiming “It’s free for me because I’m also a Thomas” doesn’t actually get you free food and drink.

After I reluctantly paid for my coffee and chocolates I was actually pretty damn happy because the food there is delicious, the chocolates are outrageously good and the coffee is solid. If you’re lucky you’ll be served by their award winning barista Konny Kan, who’s a maestro of all things latte art.

Vancouver Coffee Snob Recommendation: Thomas Haas Chocolates is actually a great place for a cup of tea, so start with a fruity herbal and an equally as fruity pastry. Move on to a latte and any of their hand made chocolates. Then more chocolates. And more.

Stop when you’re about to throw up, go home and cry in the shower.
