A real Macchiato...who knew

Stopped by with my son who insisted I try their Macchiato. No, not the latte and whipped cream caramel coated Starbucks frankenversion, as he calls it. The real McCoy. So I did. I am not a coffee aficionado, so it was not at all what I expected, but I have to say it was excellent. I’ll... read more

When walking/running the Seawall in West Vancouver, a PIT STOP at la Crema is in order! The pastries and sandwiches are fresh daily, made on the premises! No imported cinnamon buns, muffins etc., here! One day., they may even have greater espressos with personnel that know how to make them! Worthy Pit Stop non the less!

I never thought I'd write a review for a coffee shop but La Crema is so much more . The Cappuccinos ,Lattes, perfect. Best I've had. Now for the surprise , they have the most amazing selection of desserts and sandwiches! Everything is really really good, I've tried almost everything there. Sandwiches with the yummiest combinations of ingredients served on... More

Crema cafe is consistently rated as having excellent coffee. Maybe their cups of coffee and lattes are good, but any real espresso fiend would know that their espresso machine and/or baristas can NOT produce a decent espresso. They're watered down, not at proper temperature, and have a very poor crema of a creamy colour. I love espresso and I love... More

La Crema is located at a perfect corner to stop and enjoy a coffee or tea with a dessert while going for a walk along the ocean side. They are always busy, and staff are cheerful. Friends told me that they have the best coffee in Vancouver, and when I told the staff that, they laughed and were thankful. Chai... More

The location of the Crema is just a few steps from the ocean. Although the panini are very good, it's the desserts that are really incredible here. Mini pot de creme and chocolate cupcakes are delicious! Can get busy, but worth the wait.

The coffee here is consistently good and you can tell they take their coffee seriously. The treats are great - try the raspberry coffee cake, it is delicious! I am also a fan of the beef Louie sandwich. Nice location but difficult to get a seat as it is always busy. Quite expensive but in line with West Van prices!
