This place is great any time of day, but my favourite time of day to visit is morning. They serve Bean Around the World coffee, and it is amazing. Breakfast never disappoints, and staff is friendly.

This is right in the heart of charming Kerrisdale Village. There is a nice selection for breakfast. Friendly service, good coffee, reasonable prices. The breakfasts were very filling and made fresh. The atmosphere is nice - social if you want it, free wireless if you need to get a little work done. Would definitely come back here again.

I came early in the morning to get a coffee - not Starbucks. for once, and I received an americano tasting like a detergent. You should be ashamed of your barista/whoever responsible. I was already on my way, so I couldn't report that. So, I'm reporting here.

I wandered into Bean Brothers with the intent of only enjoying a cup of coffee but ended up ordering fish & chips (1 piece of cod) also because I couldn't resist the price of just $8 for the lunch and $2 for the coffee. What a deal especially in Kerrisdale.

I love the choice of food, from baked goods, to gigantic cakes and great pizzas, and good coffee. The service is friendly. Some seating is right on 41st, and the crowd is always pleasant. With coffee shops filled with single people on laptops doing whatever and occupying two to four seats, Bean Bros. is resolutely social, with arrangements and food... More

It is a bit expensive, but the coffee is fricken delicious. Be prepared to wait in line, it is usually busy. I sometimes feel uncomfortable buying my latte here because the staff comes off as a bit pompous. ... I like the ambiance of t shop decor. It is a must visit and experience kind of place, you won't regret... More

Great little cafe- I love the coffee and you can get a full meal here too. I often study here because it has a nice atmosphere. Feels more 'down-to-earth' than Artigiano across the street- and I'm not a fan of Artigiano's coffee.

I like this place because its a good place to come alone and study with a coffee, which is pretty good although nothing exceptional. When it comes to food I feel like there is a ton of room for improvement. My last visit, I had a burger. The patty was of very poor quality, one of those uniform shape, grey... More

Staying in Kerrisdale

Neighborhood Profile
Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district. In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer, at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called "The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and one-off shops crowd its streets with products and services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry, making it a wonderful place to amble and take in the visual history. Moreover, Kerrisdale's healthy consumer culture is especially apt for those interested in culinary, specialty, or children's shops, boasting more of these than anywhere else, meaning that it's a busy spot for families and hobbyists on the weekends.
