So Many Ways to Give – Think Pink 2017

For the EIGHTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is pleased to announce we’ll be supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign once again. Each year we offer our support through the sales of Pink Cupcakes with all proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund.  Over the past seven years, over 10,000 cupcakes have been baked + sold with a total donation of just under $12,100!! That’s a lot of cupcakes. And we can’t wait to make even more this year!

For the entire month of February, Pink Cupcakes will be on sale at all Take Five Café locations with all proceeds donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying programs across British Columbia. This special charity provides grants to thousands of children living with special needs. Think of the decadent chocolate cupcake with classic pink cream cheese frosting, as a guilt free treat!


Pink Cupcakes are also a great addition to business lunches. Supporting an inspiring cause is always an ice breaker! And will inspire those around us to make a positive difference.   So if you need a sweet treat or your office is catering a lunch, add a plate of pink cupcakes – think pink!  Contact our Catering Department to arrange deliveries starting February 1st. 604.697.9050

Let’s all commit to a Bully Free Life.

Staying Warm in the Cold

For most, hot chocolate brings back fond memories…

Of catching snow flakes as they fall + making snowmen 3 feet tall
With carrot noses, rocks as eyes, wearing scarves + hats of every size.
Making crunching sounds with each step, with boots too big + feet quite wet.
Of sledding down a small park hill, wearing toques + ear muffs to beat the chill.
Or eating snow when feeling hot + throwing snow balls trying not to get caught.
Sporting red rosy cheeks , dripping  nose, very cold fingers + frozen toes.
Going home to undress layer by layer, the scent of chocolate filling the air.
And seeing hot cocoa at the table + taking sips when one is able.
The taste of chocolate never gets old, a delicious way to stay warm in the cold!

We have the perfect Hot Chocolate waiting for you! With the cold snap still in the air, nothing is more delicious than savoring a rich Hot Chocolate beverage. And what’s better than a Classic Hot Chocolate? Try our Toasted Coconut Hot Chocolate.  Wherever you hope to be on cold days this season, let one of our hot chocolates transport you!
