Rejuvenation in Gas Town

Part way through our 4 hour wander around Vancouver we got diverted by a $1 shop (plus tax of course!) & decided to try the Luna. Bit confusing as there is also a sign for Smartmouth Café ? Anyhow we had a welcome coffee break but were not yet ready to eat, which was a pity as their menu looks... read more

Wandering through gas town we dropped in to Luna cafe. Great atmosphere one of the best coffees we had (that coming from an Aussie who loves their coffee) and the sandwiches and soup were great.

At the airport wishing I had picked up a veggie croissant for lunch while we were there for the sixth morning in a row during our week in Vancouver! They make a great flat white, the morning glory muffins with a hint of orange zest were warm and delicious. The breakfast burritos and croissant sandwiches were enjoyed by all in... More

I have been drinking coffee and enjoying Luna`s delicious sandwiches for a couple of years now and it has to be one of the best places in Vancouver! Their coffee is superb and their food always fresh and innovative. Long may they continue.

Hungry with my friend, I was looking for something like a sandwich shop or small coffee offering lunch. We finally saw this coffee and we're like, why not... Finally, everything was so good ! I took a nutella latte, a bit to sweet but so good, a almond croissants and the bocconcini and basilic sandwich... Everything was really good, I... More

Went in as was first place we could see for a bite to eat. So lucky. Great selection of freshly made (and baked) products that were obviously made in the back that day. A few beers on tap and good coffee. Great atmosphere and really friendly people serving. Good music and free wifi were bonuses. If in Gastown worth going... More

We were fortunate enough to choose Luna Cafe for our coffee break while walking around Gas Town. It was probably the best cup of coffee we had during our entire visit. Good atmosphere as well.

Stopped here for lunch whilst in Gastown. Very warm and welcoming. Partner ordered the mushroom soup whilst I chose the potato, kale and sausage variety. Both were excellent. Coffee was very good too. Whilst there a lady who must have been doing the baking of homemade cookies and cakes brought round a tray of rice Krispy cakes which she had... More

Having been in Canada and the US for three weeks, I was generally disappointed with the standard of the available coffee. The ubiquitous filter coffee is available everywhere but is universally blah. The standard of espresso left a lot to be desired. Then I found this place, quite by mistake, but in need of a coffee fix. Watching the barrista... More
