For us here at Essentia Café, coffee is more than making a quality cup of coffee. Coffee for us is also a way of life. In Europe, where a majority of us have gotten our training and ideas from, coffee is more of a lifestyle to enjoy.

Essentia café was created so that we can bring that lifestyle from Europe to Vancouver, with a modern twist. We are here to bring you something unique to try and enjoy. From the wait staff who is here to serve you, to the upbeat music, to the variety of beverages and pastries to choose from. We are a place where you can go with your friends to unwind, or even somewhere to meet new friends at the various events we have. We are here to bring a whole new meaning to the idea of ‘going for coffee’. We believe that a good cup of quality coffee and the right setting can ake everyone’s day a more positive, and enjoyable one.
