I swear, I had the intention of walking straight to my bus stop, ignoring the lure of sales, new items in stock and the overall spectacle that is downtown Vancouver. I had the best of intention to keep walking straight down Granville and block sensory of anything that requires me to pull out my wallet and spend money I really don’t have.
And as if I had lost all sense of my own muscle movement and the ability to control my brain, I some how, found myself inside the warm bakery of Creme de la Crumb.
I’ve read reviews on this little bakery. At 7 in the morning, it was still getting set up and with the beat of the small kitchen aid mixer in the back ground and the smell of fresh cinnamon buns, I was hooked.
Despite the temptation of eating a buttery cinnamon bun loaded with sugar and possibly awesomeness, I settled with a pear and vanilla bean scone. It was light, full of simple flavors, crispy on the outside and fresh from the oven. I think I found my favorite ‘on the way to work’ breakfast stop.

Update: March 24
So a few times, I’ve opted to try another scone at Creme de la crumb which is equally, if not I dare say, better than the pear and vanilla bean. Ladies and gents, here is the white chocolate, cranberry and orange scone.
