Chicco Coffee & Dessert Bar

1504 Robson St (Downtown)
Tel: (604) 633-1286

I like the atmosphere and decor, feels very quaint and homey. All their desserts are around $4 to $7. They also have gelato, coffee, and cake. The cups they use to put the desserts in are handmade and it appears you can buy them here too. I order the Cream Anmitsu the most often. You can get stamp card in which they'll give you stamp every time you order drinks.

Black Sesame Anmitsu ~ $5
Black Sesame Ice Cream w/ Red Bean Paste Anmitsu
Very yummy! The waffle piece at the top is a nice touch. Black Sesame ice cream is not very common so its nice that they've got it here :) I like the combination of the grass jelly, anmitsu (not very sweet themselves) with the red bean, and ice cream.

Chicco Cafe: Cream Anmitsu
Cream Anmitsu ~$6
Delicious mix of sweet flavours make this a yummy treat. The red bean paste with vanilla and green tea ice cream combined with a blob of anmitsu (white mochi) is simply irresistible! There's shortcake at the bottom layer and it adds a whole new dimension to this dessert.

Chicco Cafe: Green Tea Parfait
Green Tea Parfait ~$6
This is quite similar to the Cream Anmitsu except for its addition of green tea mousse cake on the top. Yum yum yum!!

There's cheap wings night on Wednesdays at this bar that's located next to helicopter landing by the Richmond airport. There are a lot of windows facing the west so you get a good view of the surrounding flat airport/fields. Ambience is good but it gets quite busy the later it is in the day since it's a bar after all. You'd probably get a good view of the sunset there :)

Calamari ~$8

Chicken wing flavours:

Salt & Pepper
Simple but good. This wasn't covered in sauce so the wings were quite crispy and crunchy still. I

Spicy Thai
Quite flavourful and not really spicy. It's a good variation to complement the Salt & Pepper wings.

Honey Garlic
I didn't end up liking this one that much although I chose this flavour. It didn't have enough taste (garlic or salt) in it and it was very difficult to hold because the sauce made it super slippery.
