Really good taste

Everything in this coffee shop just make the atmosphere of a modern cafe with a mature taste to their coffee and a sweet taste to their muffins and cookies. The only thing is that it is sometimes busy, but it's worth the wait. You should definitely come here if your visit is business related.

Absolutely delightful especially on a damp Winter day before heading out of the city! Hubby and I had an Americana as was recommended by one of the Vendors and we were not disappointed. I will have to stop by there on my next time down there, will get a larger one next time, LOL...

One of my favorite coffee houses in Vancouver. Very good coffee and bakery items. Well worth a visit if you like coffee or specialty coffees.

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!
