I have no idea how to pronounce the last part of Cafe de Beaumarchais‘s name, but it’s sure fun trying while sitting over two lovely coffees and one of the best apple cakes we’ve ever had: Bo-mar-chase. Bo-march-ayys. Bo-mark-ay.
Perched on the upper end of Sassafras, this lil French cafe has lots of character with its black walls, antique-looking plates & cups, chandeliers, and big portraits of movie stars. But it takes more than character to attract a buzzing atmosphere; so the edible stuff must be pretty good too, right? Yup.
Firstly, nearly every person was hovering over their own cup of coffee, including us. Two flat whites which held their strength, went perfectly with the apple cake we shared. Moist cake, big pieces of cooked apple, crunchy walnut pieces, and cinnamon all came together for just right sweetness, uber-tasty but not too sweet.

Sassafras is a fun little town to visit, whether you’re from Victoria or not. So if you find yourself in the vicinity, grab a coffee and cake at Caf-fay-day-Bo-mar-chase! haha!
