Boxed Up Toast: What8ver CafeMay 04, 2013
On my last trip to Vancouver, I was able to squeeze in some catch up time with my girlfriend Lucy. I had previously seen these desserts called 'toast boxes' and was pretty intrigued with the way they looked. And since Edmonton does't do anything remotely familiar, I took the chance to visit What8ver Cafe (how are you even supposed to say that?!) in Richmond to see what the toast box was all about.

Having had the toast box experience, it's probably not something I would do again. I'd say eating it is more for the novelty experience - which seems to be working for What8ver Cafe, because they get long lines on the weekends with patrons hoping to try it out. The item itself does take a while to prepare, so be ready to sit and wait for yours. Do keep in mind that this toast box is a massive amount of carbs - I was stuffed for hours, so time your visit right. If you're looking to have this for dessert, bring a buddy to share the experience with!
