In November 2018 the French purveyor announced the Vancouver store would be closing for “renovation purposes”.

Now, the 1210 Robson Street sweet spot is marked as permanently closed online and its website is expired. The address was listed for sale back in September 2018.

Daily Hive has reached out to L’Eclair de Génie Canada regarding the closure but did not hear back in time for publication.

It looks like Taipei bubble tea spot Jenjudan is taking over the address.

We’ll keep you posted on opening details for this spot.
