Big news for fans of Japanese cheesecake shop Uncle Tetsu, the brand is officially opening a location in downtown Vancouver.

Uncle Tetsu has put up signage at 1151 Robson Street, and the new shop is opening in winter 2020.

The Japanese dessert chain opened its first BC location in Burnaby’sĀ Metropolis at Metrotown in the spring of 2018, bringing a ton of buzz and big lines on opening day.

Known for its small but delicious selection of sweet treats like its signature fluffy Japanese Cheesecake, Honey Madeleines, and Rusks, Uncle Tetsu first touched down in Canada when it opened in Toronto in 2015.

The Robson Street location will be the brand’s 12th location in Canada. The majority of those outposts are in Toronto and the GTA, while Ottawa and Montreal have one store each.
