Cartems Donuterie

On my last day in Vancouver my 1pm flight was cancelled and I was put on the next flight, leaving at 4:55. That gave me a few more precious hours to discover some more of the city and, remembering a TV show I’d seen about cool donut places a few years ago, I discovered the wonderful gem that is Cartems Donuterie.

Cartems makes specialty donuts with unique, high-end flavours like Lavender Cream and Honey Parmesan. The Earl Grey donut – which is Cartem’s most popular – is surprisingly light and fragrant, with a distinct but not overpowering taste of tea. Being a tea lover myself, I indulged in the most heavenly creation: a cream-filled London Fog donut. I couldn’t resist the urge to buy a half-dozen donuts to bring back to my friends, and I’m happy to say that, though carrying a large box of donuts through the airport proved to be much more burdensome than expected, all the precious cargo made it safely to Toronto, soft and fluffy dough intact.

So, yes, this post was dedicated entirely to donuts. Next time you’re in Vancouver, be sure to stop by Cartems for a delicious treat.
