I’ve ate Trafiq’s cakes several times although it took me awhile to step foot into their actual cafe. Trafiq Cafe & Bakery is incredibly popular; you’ll find them tucked among the throng of crowded shops on Main Street. Sawasdee Thai Restaurant is nearby.
We’ve visited three times on afternoon weekends and it’s always busy. Seems to come in waves but there’s usually a line to the door. Despite the chaos, service is friendly and they clear dishes from your table. Water is self serve at the back.
There’s toast, light lunch, quesadillas, grilled sandwiches (favourites and BYO) and desserts.
This was their two Hot Chocolate Festival offerings. Yeah, we went two years in a row.
Their most famous for their cakes but they also have cookies, pastries and drinks.
Bunch of cakes are always out on display while you wait in line.
Closeup of a couple more cakes. $35.00 for a 6″ cake is reasonable. Commence drooling.
Minis are always available. Need to try the matcha opera one of these days.

Their loafs seem to change but cookies are always there.
Mexico: Diego & Frida ($8.00)
White chocolate, sweet & condensed milk, cinnamon and a hint of rose. Hot chocolate was delicious; very milky, rich and full bodied (if I can describe it like that). It includes a mini cake!
Not too sweet, fantastic pear gelee and such a smooth texture. It was gone in no time.
Peanut butter crunch brownie ($4.00)
This was extremely rich. The crunchy texture inside of the brownie reminded me of the chocolate itself. M ordered this and couldn’t even eat half of it; she took the rest home.
Finally tried one of their grilled sandwiches. Really liked the arugula slaw; refreshing and crunchy. The sandwich itself was homey but simple.
The rose raspberry was light and not overly sweet.
Will be back but if you go, try for a less busier time to drop by. Fantastic, consistent, quality cakes.
