We had excellent coffee and macchiato here while visiting the JJ bean located on Granville Island. We will definitely return to JJ Bean when we visit Vancouver again.

This is far superior to Starbucks. Very good coffee indeed. A good intense but not bitter roast. Will be a favorite whenever I can find one.

Whenever we are in town we like to go for food to Granville Island. All the coffee shops there did not meet our requirements for a good coffee. But on this trip we discovered JJ Bean. The latte tastes exactly like i like it. Very smooth and not sour. They even do latte art. Now we can even go for... More

This is a local company and if you like strong espresso they are the ones for you. The staff tend to be really interesting, so if they aren't busy ask them a question.

Being an Aussie I'm particular about my coffee. We were inVancouver for 5 days and this was the best coffee I had. No gimmicky Starbucks flavours or sweeteners, just good plain coffee. Definitely recommended, it was a pleasure to finally have a proper latte!

I've been to this JJ Bean probably a dozen times: not sure I'll go back again. Why? Well, the range of service & quality of the coffee is shockingly different almost every time. First of all, these have to be the most distracted baristas in Vancouver. Really, folks, your lives are NOT so fascinating that you MUST ignore the clientele... More

They do what it says on the tin, COFFEE and what a good coffee it is. Strong but not bitter coffee with a good after taste. I recommend at least one cup an hour when dealing with the crowds in Granville market. Q can get a bit long but at least you get to smell the coffee.

Generally not too much of a line up regardless of when you go - never waited more than eight minutes .... But perhaps I'm just lucky. Reliable good quality lattes and the service ranges from business like efficient to very friendly.

Great, hot coffee. Nice location- right at door for coffee going in or coffee on way out. Friendly service too.
