Bah Bah Blaq Sheep, Have you any wool coffee? Yes sir, yes sir, Three bags cups full. Sounds like a nursery rhyme doesn’t it with it’s cute signage. Blaq Sheep Coffee House is located in Yaletown close by Roundhouse and Davie Street on Pacific Blvd. I’ve heard many good things about this independent coffee shop. I’ve heard how between 11am – 2pm you get a free coffee with a lunch item or that price points are pretty reasonable.
At first look this coffee shop is intriguing, red walls, comfy seats and Eames like wooden chairs by Herman Miiller in the back. The coffee itself is not bad. But because of the dim lighting in the back we couldn’t help falling asleep on a quite Sunday afternoon. How could the 2nd cup of dark roast not keep us caffeinated and stop us from yawning profusely.
Blatte (latte, haha get it?): Regular, nothing special. And I don’t even get a latte art?
The reason is simple. The dim lighting and the overcast environment isn’t where one should dwell in. Neither is a filthy washroom. Never have I seen such an unkept lavatory. My natural instinct is if the washrooms are dirty (especially if the establishment isn’t busy) it is a reflection of the kitchen. Don’t think I’ll be returning anytime soon. But if you are a newbie christening this “sanctuary”, 1st time checkin on Foursquare grants you one free 12 oz drink. Bottoms up!.
