Timbertrain Coffee Roasters Vancouver is located 311 W Cordova S, Gastown. It is great hipster cafe just around from the Old Faithful Shop and Rowan Sky. Just around the corner is Water Street Cafe. I love the big window seats at the front of the…

Greenhorn Espresso Cafe Vancouver located on a quiet corner of Nicola Street and Nelson. I was first attracted to this independent coffee shop because of its decor and record collection. Getting to Greenhorn coffee shop wasn’t exactly easiest with multiple one-way, no exit and the…
Aperture Coffee Bar Vancouver is a charming coffee shop on Broadway away from all the craziness. Serving Intelligentsia Coffee, the espresso was delicious and rich. I feel guilty for disclosing where I like to unwind, get some work done and just sit down to read a book. If you have forgotten to bring your book, they have plenty of James Patterson, JD Salinger and Stephen King to go around.
This neighborhood cafe is perfect for a rainy day. To grab a cup of Americano or chai latte and sit by the window people watching.
Chai Latte: Perhaps not the best chai latte in Vancouver. This cup was weak and not as flavorful as Bump n Grind Cafe on South Granville or Commercial Drive.
There is free WiFi and the barista is friendly. Aperture Coffee Bar is a total gem. Prices are perhaps a little pricey.

Just found myself a new hang out space with stellar coffee. Bump N Grind Cafe opened their second location on 3010 Granville Street. We celebrated their Grand Opening shindig with handcrafted Canadian coffee roasters, in house baked goods, and bumping live entertainment! Cheers to a Tuesday…
Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting Company, is a coffee roasting company in Seattle, Washington that we recently grew very fond of. We were recently sent a Caffe Vita’s holiday blend coffee beans. I am in love. Caffe Vita has been on our radar for some time now. It is one of the top 10 coffee shops in Seattle.
Caffe Vita’s holiday blend features three exceptional coffees that were sourced during their travels this past year. Each of these coffees is remarkable in their own right, but as a blend they complement each other to create a balanced and complex cup that is well suited for holiday drinking – spicy, sweet, and slightly toasty, with flavors of chocolate, cherry, and clove.
A naturally processed yellow bourbon lot from Monte Verde in Brazil provides a dried cherry sweetness, along with subtle oak and vanilla notes. The washed, high-grown caturra by Rafael Brixius in Fraijanes, Guatemala, contributes dark chocolate and subtle citrus notes, while our Ethiopian Lelisa Hara lot adds understated florals and an intriguing spice.
Celebrate the season with Caffe Vita’s limited edition Holiday Blend, the perfect complement to your family gatherings.
A morning brew on a French Press with double baked pain au chocolate with hazelnut cream makes one heck of a morning! Long live strong nutty coffee!
Caffe Vita is located conveniently on Pike, but not obnoxiously near the market. I’m a big fan for their Cafe Luna coffee blend of nuttiness and earthy tones. Gayo River single origin is also quite nice. Come here if you are looking for a serious full flavored latte or espresso. The Capital Hill location has a coffee roaster in the back of this two story cafe. Free Wifi.

If you are looking for a retro Starbucks Coffee in Hong Kong Central, it is on Duddell Street. The concept is similar to the retro vintage 1940’s Hong Kong style cafe in Mong Kong Sai Yee Street 旺角洗衣街. Starbucks Coffee on Duddell Street is the World’s first ever Starbucks that retrofits to the nostalgic Bing Sutt 冰室 within a contemporary coffeehouse design. It is decorated with old school furniture, lighting with a local brand GOD (Goods of Desire) with antiques and goods that are quintessentially Hong Kong. Duddell Street itself is a historically renowned staircase with gas lamps and long staircase. It is home to many films and brings a timeless heritage to Hong Kong.
At first glance Starbucks Coffee Central on Duddell Street appears to be just another Starbucks coffee shop. But after entering deeper, you will find yourself merged beyong Western modernization and back to 1950’s Hong Kong intimate style and traits solely Hong Kong.
Not only will you be able to enjoy a Ventri Dark or a sweet Caramel Macchiato latte, you will also find a few treats characteristics of Hong Kong. Or Chinese in that sense. Enjoy a coffee infused egg tart or red bean pudding. If you prefer a more western dessert, try the chocolate lamington.
I love how Starbucks embraces different cultural and integrates this modern coffee shop with a taste of the classics. It is even interesting to see the first Starbucks store not in English.

Prado Cafe is located on Commercial Drive. The coffee shop is managed by multi world barista World Barista Championship finalist, Sammy Piccolo. Prado Cafe is small and is full most times. It serves 49th Parallel coffee which I find too acidic. They have a small wooden bench outside which…
