Very tasty coffee and nice place to sit and speak with your friends. Staff is so friendly. One of my most favourite cafe places in Canada.

If you get a chance, try to order the pastry selection for breakfast. We received 3 pastries and each one was light, flaky and just the right amount of sweetness. I wish we could have one every day!

With it's seated service and decor, it feels like it should be pretty expensive! But it's actually reasonable! I had a delicious BLT sandwich (which was huge) and a coffee for $14. The wait staff were really attentive and friendly too.

I love this cafe, but it can be a bit too busy. They have gluten free options including bread/toast for sandwiches. Their 'Toast' of the day is an open sandwich that usually has the most interesting toppings with very sophisticated flavours.

Nice place to get a quick bite and coffee in the morning. We really liked their croissants and scones. Also, they make their vanilla syrup for their drinks and it's yummy!

I can't get over how amazing the food is here. The sushi salad and kale salad are fantastic. I had a lobster roll once that was the best sandwich I have ever had. I hope they bring that back soon!

This is a nice place to grab a cup of coffee and a bakery item, it's a little Noisy, but really convienient for where I was staying. Somewhat confusing, but it was a offer and pastry stop for us.

We had a bite to eat here and coffee before we started or day of sightseeing. It was fresh and delicious. Sometimes tricky getting seating.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
