916 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Advice: have a seat at one of the large communal tables and mingle if you like or listen in on those great conversations.
This is one of those cafes that I frequent for great coffee, passionate baristas behind the bar, great food and an amazing ambiance. On one recent visit I had a French Press Coffee ($2.50), on another visit an Espresso ($2.25) and on the most recent visit an Espresso Macchiato ($2.75) along with a delicious vegan Mukie. The owner formerly in construction exuberates his passion and love for the coffee that he serves in his café and does it with bang on precision. Doesn’t hurt to have a Synesso, one of the finest espresso machines in the world, coffee from 49th Parallel as well as Social Coffee Co.
I love this place, from the layout of the café and its tables and seating to the black and white shows on the north wall, to the vast selection of fresh baked goods and desserts in the case to the vibe in the café.
