On your way from downtown to Gastown, pay a visit to Cartems for artisan donuts and a mug of milk, or for parents, some crisp, light-roast pourover coffee. The shop is a bright, treat-filled happy place made from reclaimed wood and brick. The doughnuts are divine.
Maple walnut, bacon and whiskey, rhubarb compote filled “jelly” doughnuts, IPA-glazed yeast o’s, coconut chocolate cake doughnuts, lavender diplomat cream bismarcks, Boston creams with organic vanilla cream and chocolate glaze. Your day could start and end here.
We won’t judge you if you take a cheerful red box of indulgence for the road.
