Tea House History
Established in 2012, La Petite Cuillère has become an iconic staple of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood in Vancouver. Our tea house provides a unique social gathering place for both local and visiting patrons. With its striking custom interior and innovative menu, we strive to offer a different type of experience that honors all the traditional qualities of the English tea service, while catering to a more contemporary urban food and drink lifestyle.
At La Petite, our vision is centered around the quality of the tea that we serve. By sourcing only the finest ingredients and blending our teas in-house, we hope to show our deep appreciation for tea culture in every cup. This is further reflected in the food that we serve. Most of the items on our menu incorporate some element of tea in the cooking process. When pairing food with tea, we carefully take into consideration aroma, flavor, taste, astringency, and texture. Our food menu is also curated to accommodate most dietary restrictions, and recipes are made by hand in small batches without compromise.
It is important to us that we operate our business with a zero-waste philosophy and maintain a strong commitment to giving back to the community. We are grateful to be partnered with Mealshare; a non-profit organization that provides millions of nutritious meals each year, to youth experiencing hunger both locally and abroad. For each dedicated menu item purchased at our restaurant by you, Mealshare in turn provides a meal for a kid in need. We also sponsor regular proceed giveaways and events for organizations like Vancouver Food Bank and BC Children’s Hospital.
Some of you may know this already, but we love throwing parties! With our unique space, we host unforgettable bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, and anniversaries. Our dining room is easily transformed into a great venue for private parties and events. We warmly welcome you into our establishment and hope to make your experience with us memorable and special. Thank you for your patronage!
