I love this coffee shop. It's at a prime location (right at the beginning of Water St, into Gastown), love their decor - crisp and clean, their pastries are good, and coffee is good. A tad bit overpriced to be honest, but for its location,...More

Nicely done up coffee bar. Service is prompt and there is lots of seating. Espresso was just ok. They serve sandwiches and some pastries. There are lots of people in there which gives it a good vibe.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
