Cozy little coffee shop in downtown Vancouver. Very personable, plus the owner Mario was serving us. Known for their coffee (excellent), and sandwiches. Good variety of pastries and a mini selection for breakfast. Loved the atmosphere.

Small place, less than 20 seats. Excellent coffee, full flavored but not bitter. Unusually good. Good food, good value. House omelet was well prepared. Simple but very good place for breakfast. Probably going for lunch too but didn't get a chance to go for lunch.

This was a very friendly place with a local feel. People there know each other by name. Get the Americano which was voted the best coffee in town. It was strong but mellow. Muffins are good. The biscotti are excellent!
