For the wine collector or wine aficionado you can visit the cellar which offers high end bottles of wine from all over the world, perfect for that special occasion whatever that may be. The stores website is a valuable resource as well such as the information on Food and Wine pairing, personally I love the section showcasing the Best of BC that features wines from all over British Columbia.

Cuisine: cafe and coffee roastery

The Milano taste was developed from a century of artisanship in the Italian coffee tradition. This distinguished taste comes from the skill of the torrefazzioni – a secret method roasting and blending, closely guarded, personally taught, and handed down generation to generation. Our lineage of Musetti, Curatolo, and now Turko brings the family owned and operated Casa Torrefazione (house roaster and blender) into the twenty-first century.
