Located in the heart of Marpole, is a bright market and café with plenty of seating including a communal table that is centered in the room. On the market side is this small neighborhood grocery that features several local producers products as such staples that include Kids Can Cook Gourmet pasta sauces and other products. On the café side, they offer a full line-up of espresso beverages featuring Caffe Umbria coffee as well as a selection of sandwiches and baked goods from local bakeries that include croissants, cookies, muffins and more.

I had a Cortado ($3.25) and an Almond filled Croissant. This is a great spot to catch up on some reading, writing or perhaps a conversation with a friend.
