There are so many delightful treats available to tempt your sweet tooth, it doesn’t seem fair that this time of year lets pumpkin spice have all the fun. When it comes to fall and winter treats, Squamish is home to a remarkably large industry of confectionary masters waiting to satisfy all your sugary cravings.


Hand-made, ethically sourced, delicious and… chocolate!  Xoco Westcoast Chocolatiers ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying your appetite for cocoa. This little shop in downtown Squamish has a selection of decadent and simply beautiful handmade chocolates. You can also grab one their famed chocolate bars from a variety of retailers in the Sea to Sky.




Pecan Tart 

Does it get any better than a freshly baked pie? If you haven’t heard of the Golden Crust, it’s time to make your way to Dentville and pick up one of their ‘world famous’ pocket pies or sample from their array of pastries, cookies and savoury items (and full-size pies too of course). Locally owned and operated, they stick to their motto ‘Sea to Sky Delicious’ - and they are.

Croissants by Tall Tree Bakery

Made from scratch with natural ingredients, Tall Tree Bakery offers a daily selection of artisan breads as well as an assortment of scrumptious baked goods to drool over. This past summer they successfully experimented with ice cream sandwiches, so there’s no telling what they might whip up each day. Insider tip: They also make the best croissant in town.

The Green Moustache- raw, vegan desserts

Just because something is decadent doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy. Case in point, The Green Moustache. Specializing in raw, vegan treats, they might just convert you full-time with their fun variety of ‘cheesecakes’ and their yummy date squares. You’ll want to get fooled every day, they are that good.
