We live in North Vancouver which is an hour from Mission so this was a small pilgrimage for us. My daughter needs to make a Victoria Sponge Cake as a wedding cake for a friend. She is a terrific baker but hadn't actually tasted one before and the English Tarts were the only place we could find in the Lower Mainland that made one. We phoned ahead a day before and they promised to have one on offer. Mission is a cool little town with a lovely main street. We stayed for lunch and had an egg salad sandwich, pea leak and potato soup and a quiche. And of course we had the sponge cake. They were all wonderful. (Did I mention the home made bread?) After one of the proprietors took ten minutes to talk sponge cake with us. It was a touch of welcome that made the hospitality as good as the food. We often look for a place to visit when friends visit us and we will be returning here.
