Walked by here a lot of times and always curious to try it, so finally, given the chance that our movie plan was foiled, I suggested to my fellow foodies to walk allll the way down Robson to here! =D

Chicco offers parfaits and a variety of other desserts, but the main thing is the parfaits that drew me in. Mind you, they're CASH ONLY.
Of course, I ordered their Tiramisu Parfait... but forgot the price, it was around $9. The little square of tiramisu on top was rather delicious, but the macaron... was lacking. It was way too hard and  dense. The whipped cream in the middle didn't really help the whole thing, but the ice cream was great. Nothing exceptional, but I liked it. There was a lot of corn flakes in the middle! Surprised by the cake bits on the bottom, which were quite filling. I was so full after this! xD
Here's what the ingredients should be like, which was in the ones we got, so no surprises there =) I may come back to try others, but somewhere up the street are cheaper parfaits to try first! =D

AZ and WY both got a Mango Parfait, which looked amazing too, there was a ball of raspberry ice cream near the bottom, which seemed interesting. They both enjoyed it, so I assume it was good! Such a small store, it's quite homey.
