Vancouver Foodster’s 1st Annual Barista, Waiter, Cocktail-Maker Awards

While we’re more than happy to test out a new spot (or several) every now and then, everyone has their regular places they go back to time and time again.

What incites this loyalty? Sure, the food might be great, and the coffee’s good, or it’s just down the street, but we think one of the biggest factors that keeps people coming back is service.

That’s why, here at Vancouver Foodster, we’ve decided it’s high time we recognized and celebrated our favourite baristas, waiters, and, you guessed it, cocktail-makers!

We want to know the best of the best in the service industry – who makes the best coffee? Is the friendliest? Makes the best cocktail? Who is the best server in all of your favourite restaurants?

No one is off limits – male, female, young, or, not-so-young, in the city or suburbs. Whoever the person is that keeps you coming back is who we want.

This is how it will work:

Nominate your favourite Barista, Waiter, Cocktail-Maker and submit to us by Monday, December 31st. The person who has the highest number of nominations in each award category wins. We crown the best barista, best waiter, and best cocktail-maker in our fair city, on January 7th.

What are you waiting for?

Nominate as many different people as you like!



Award Categories: Best Barista;  Best Waiter and Best Cocktail-Maker

Nominations are now closed, results will be announced on January 7, 2013

Everyone who participates by submitting their favourite barista, waiter and cocktail-maker will be entered to win a hospitality package worth over $300 (featuring gift certificates to a selection of eateries around the city including Cafe Il Nido and more), which will be randomly drawn on January 4th.
