...but it's a Coffee Shop, not a Restaurant, except in the sense that anyplace that serves food of any kind is a Restaurant. That said, it is an EXCELLENT Coffee Shop. The coffee is diverse and delicious, there are lots of nice accompaniments, and the ambiance is superior. Nice servers too. The ORCA runners often stop in here after a long Saturday morning run and there's room for the whole bunch.

As a stopover on a drive Serious coffee cafe does offfer the chance to taste an interesting range if coffees. Drinks are generous in size and you do get the best impression that they do take their coffee seriously here.

Serious is serious about its coffee. And I am serious about a cappuccino like it's made in Italy not North America. Serious has avoided the terrible trend of believing that bigger is better and that more milk and bigger cups makes it so. This is a great chain on Vancouver Is. And oh yes, the pastries are good too.

What is in that coffee? Forget Starbucks, I needed some serious coffee. Nice people too. There is also an assortment of light meals and goodies, some locally baked.

This is such a busy local coffee shop. Lots of choices and places to sit, good prices. The locals have their own tables in which they all meet up. If it is good for the locals then it should be great for people travelling through.
