Since Vanille charges $4.50 for a piece of cake I buy, I assumed they are baked daily. Yesterday, I noticed the store had no customer as usual and suspected the bakery suffers from poor business. I wanted to buy scones and a piece of cake and asked the salesgirl for fresh made ones. To my surprise, she stammered that NONE of the scones nor cake slices were made on the same day. She refused to reveal the date of manufacture and rudely said they "control the quality". Now I understand why the chocolate cake I bought recently was dry. The moist cakes which looked nice don't taste dry because they have high moisture content to begin with. This bakery is superficial, sells on looks, not freshness. Even grocery bakery like Whole Foods assure customer of daily fresh cakes. Why does Vanille not sell daily fresh cakes for the price they charge?

the bakery is snobbery. I was in hurry to get a cake for my 4 yr old boy and on the way home i saw this bakery was open. I bought a $9 dollors Japanese chocolate cake (5" inch rounded cake) and i was in hurry to get home so I asked the lady if she can give me one free candle. She answered they do not have candles and she wrapped the cake into a "supermarket" style plastic bag. Well, that was a shock the bakeries in Chinese community they give free candle and plastic cutting knife and I heard this bakery is Chinese owned. They do sell reg. birthday cakes i think over $30, I wonder if beucase I didn't buy the $30 dollors birthdaycake so they won't give me a candle and nice bag. Even $9 a 5" cake still a cake, I should get same treatment as buying $30 cake. I usually buy cakes in Japanese bakeries, they do not give you such snobbery feeling and they wrap the cake into a nice bag; and they also give you plastic cutting knife and free candle. overall, the cake taste OK and little too dry unlike a real Japanese cake.

First off, the presentation is excellent.. So beautiful.. you cant bear to touch it.. but you will, and the taste is to-die-for. Smooth, fine and they cater to the asian palettes, who may not be into the thick and heavy frosting or cream often found in regular non-asian/ western cakes. Dont get me wrong, good cakes are good cakes. But sometimes you want to go for something on the lighter side.. even if it is just the illusion of..

I love the cakes that is sold in vanilla dea patisserie. Their cakes are beautifully designed and it tastes extremely delicious. Most of their cakes contain a bit of alcohol, so if you don't like alcohol, don't get your cakes here. One thing that makes this place strikes out is they have a tea time. You can pay a certain amount of money, and they will provide you with a choice of cakes for you to choose from. If you don't know what flavor you like, its best to tastes their different flavors during their tea time. But i am sure you will love all of their cakes, I have yet to buy one flavot that i dislike.

This bakery makes delicious pasteries and cakes. Although it has a french name, the pasteries are really catering to the local chinese community. I highly recommend the cheesecakes - the crust is amazing and the cake itself is yummy. The chocolate items are not usually as good as the fruit flavored items (e.g. mango mousse cake).

PROS: Tasty, not so sweet pasteries & cakes
CONS: Not cheap

Vanille is a small cake and dessert shop. All the cakes are beautiful and they are delicious. They have exoitc flavors as well as traditional. They have a cake buffet for $10. A small rectangle 3x6 cakes is roughly $10 or a 8 in. diameter cake is roughly $30. All in all, their cakes are not super sweet, but have just the right amount.
