Mount Pleasant is a neighborhood our off-duty Fluffians love to hang out in. On the weekends, it is always bustling with people enjoying a drink on outdoor patio or strolling the side-streets with their children. There have been new boutiques, restaurants, and bars popping up in this area making it a great place to rediscover. One of our top fave spots along Main Street is getting a notable update. If you haven’t already visited Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France, your palette hasn’t experienced life to its fullest.
Anne-Geneviève Poitras studied in Montreal and dedicates her shop to creating “French classics” and trendy items within the industry. Their wide range of products are delicious, particularly the earl grey, cayenne, and black current flavored dark chocolate. They also have confections, beverages such as hot chocolate, and seasonal items such as gelato.
Anne and her staff are very excited about a future addition to her shop, and we couldn’t be more pleased as well! A new bike rack and seating area outside her shop is being constructed as we speak! This is going to create a great hub for bike commuters making their way up the Main Street incline.
It is located right on the corner of Main Street and East 21st Avenue, in front of her shop and Coco et Olive coffee shop. So far it is looking similar to the seating area on Robson Street by Burrard (pictured below).
The bike station outside Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France will have seating and tables to eat your chocolatey goods at. There will be freshly planted flowers and grasses with a spot to lock multiple bikes up at. It’s progressing quite quickly and we cannot wait to see the finished product! Here is an image of the progress outside Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France:
We hope to see this addition help business boom at Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France and hope to see more people discover this tucked away gem in Vancouver. We hope to see you guys there! Visit their website at: http://chocolaterienouvellefrance.ca for more information.
