Cartems Donuterie

family travel Vancouver

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.

About author

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
