Cartems Donuterie

Bakery in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

The youngest of a three-outlet gourmet doughnut mini-chain (the others are on Main St and downtown), this austere-looking L-shaped spot is all about indulging in that most vital of food groups: the treat. Snag a seat at the communal table, grab a board game and sink your choppers into salted caramel, Earl Grey or smoked-maple-walnut varieties – or all three.

Before you leave, don't forget to make up a to-go box for the the road; try to resist scoffing them on the bus on your way home.
