Best Cafés (Coffee) in Vancouver

We, in the land of fresh mountain air and salty sea breezes, LOVE OUR JAVA. And apparently it is no longer a club secret. Recently smartertravel.com named Vancouver as one of the world’s top 10 best cities for coffee.

With the sophistication of our beautiful, world-class city has come a revolution in what we expect from our coffee experiences. Appeal is not determined by brew alone. True coffee culture aficionados seek decor & design, ambiance, ethical sourcing, unique brewing techniques, quality baked goods, and of course basics like cleanliness and good service.

The following exclusive selections include ONLY spots that hit the mark high in each category.

Best Cafés (Coffee) in Downtown Vancouver

With so many java options at our fingertips, here’s a list of downtown Vancouver's very best coffee shops.

Bel Café

Bel Cafe Hawksworth

801 W Georgia St | 604-673-7000 $ | Coffee Shop

@bel_cafe | Visit website

The sister cafe to Hawksworth Restaurant (named after Chef David's wife Annabel), Bel Cafe serves 49th parallel espresso, house-baked pastries (croissants, Valrhona cookies etc.) and gourmet sandwiches (try the Roasted Eggplant with spiced chickpea, almond and gouda) and more. Full table service is in effect, alongside a slew of to-go items.

Caffe Artigiano (Hornby St)

Artigiano Downtown

763 Hornby St. | 604-694-7737 $ | Coffee Shop

@caffeartigiano | Visit website

A bustling location with a constant line-up out the door. Don't worry, though...these award-winning baristas are lightening fast. Artigiano’s goal is to serve coffees seasonally to boast their freshness. Due to high standards and the popularity of their Italian-themed coffeehouses, they’ve opened 11 locations in Vancouver, five in Calgary, one in Toronto, with more in the works.

Thierry

1059 Alberni St | 604-608-6780 $$ | Bakery

@thierrychocolat | Visit website

Thierry is best known for their fine French pastries, but expert baristas and an organic, fair trade espresso blend, designed by Casa del Caffe’s Vincent Gentile, ensure consistently good coffee, too. Their beans are dry roasted to ensure freshness and a unique taste profile that’s strong and smooth with hints of chocolate, cinnamon and spice. Late night coffee drinkers will appreciate Thierry’s close time of 12am, and spiked drinks are available, too.

JJ Bean (Alberni St)

This is one of JJ's most central locations with lots of natural light, plenty of seating and, of course, their giant house-made muffins. The coffee-loving Neate family, who sources high quality green coffee and strives to serve the freshest cups possible, has been roasting beans in small batches for decades.

Caffe Artigiano (W Hastings St)

Artigiano Hastings Interior

740 W Hastings St | 604-915-7200 $$ | Coffee Shop

This is one of Artigiano's biggest cafes and home to a commissary kitchen where all their salads, sandwiches and wraps are made by hand daily.

Café Medina

Cafe Medina Coffee Bar

780 Richards St | 604-879-3114 $$ | Belgian

@cafemedina | Visit website

Consistently great espresso is one Cafe Medina’s secrets to success. With a coffee bar dedicated to lattes, waffles, and a to-go counter, skip the 20-person queue for quick access to caffeine. A top-of-the-line La Marzocco FB/80 can be credited for their perfect 49th Parallel coffees, as can their talented, coffee-obsessed baristas. Owner Robbie Kane says ultra-frequent bean deliveries and an “off-gassing” period (so the carbon dioxide can disperse from the beans) is another reason behind their extra special espresso.

One of Gastown's most popular cafes serving properly pulled 49th Parallel espresso. Much of their baking is done in-house daily; other high-end items are sourced locally. Enjoy savouring your latte?

And a wide variety of sandwiches, healthy snacks and free wifi mean it's a great spot to lounge all day long.

Where Italians go for coffee. This is Milano's biggest and most stunning location serving master roaster Brian Turko's award-winning Italian espresso. He's a cream-of-the-crop artisan who's been perfecting his craft of blending espresso for decades.

East Van Roasters

East Van Roasters Chocolate Cafe

319 Carrall St | 604-629-7562 $ | Coffee Shop

@eastvanroasters | Visit website

A charming coffee and chocolate cafe with a purpose: to provide training and employment to the female residents of the Downtown Eastside’s Rainer Hotel. One taste of their organic bean-to-bar chocolate and house-roasted beans, however, and you’d guess these were the utmost focus. Choose from drinking chocolate, hand-rolled truffles, single-origin chocolate bars, Faubourg pastries and more. And the space? Totally to die for.

Nelson the Seagull

Nelson the Seagull Gastown

315 Carrall St | 604-681-5776 $ | Lunch

@gastownseagull | Visit website

Beloved brother-and-sister-run cafe and sandwich shop decorated eclectically with vintage items. Jono and Lee’s huge, funky space is a regular spot to all walks of life who appreciate character.

@musettecaffe | Visit website

A licensed, bike-friendly coffee bar decorated with the cycling memorabilia of owner Thomas Eleizegui. The menu features quality 49th Parallel espresso, lots of pastries, yogurt & granola, soups, a small European beer list and more.

Revolver Coffee

325 Cambie St | 604-558-4444 $$ | Coffee Shop

@revolver_coffee | Visit website

The Giannakos brothers love coffee in a mad scientist kind of way. They spend lots of time tweaking, sipping, tasting and evaluating to ensure great tasting coffee every time. Though simple, this coffee program is precise, consistent and always using beans from world class roasters.

Timbertrain Coffee Roasters

Timbertrain Coffee Roasters Cafe Gastown

311 W Cordova St | 604-361-3223 $$ | Coffee Shop

@timbertrain | Visit website

A venture from three old friends who are passionate about the science of brewing perfection into each cup of coffee. Using their own beans roasted at a separate facility in Langley, Peter, Jeff and Min focus on slow bar brewing with a methodical and measured technique. This meticulous process is their labour of love. Snack-wise, they serve waffles and par-baked croissants that are finished in their modern, stylish space. Note: seating can be tricky to nab.

Matchstick (Chinatown)

Matchstick Chinatown Baking

213 E Georgia St | 604-336-0213 $ | Coffee Shop

@matchstickyvr | Visit website

One of Vancouver's favourite local coffee roasters with a stunning space and an admirable goal: "to serve the absolute highest quality coffee that they can imagine." It's less of a focus, but I say their in-house baking is as delicious as their hand-crafted, single-origin coffees. As their cafe is often packed, seats can be hard to snag.

Prado Cafe (Gastown)

100 W Hastings St - OPENING SOON | $$ | Coffee Shop

@pradocafevan | Visit website

Four-time Canadian barista champion Sammy Piccolo's second Prado location is a go-to for the discerning coffee drinker. To ensure a perfect cup every time, he weighs the dry mass of the freshly ground espresso, times shots and uses an extract mojo refractometer regularly. A Fetco brewer is used for drip and almost all food items are made daily in-house. The gluten-free berry muffin is really decent.

Their typical beans are roasted in Victoria by Bows & Arrows and the Hario pour-over coffee is their preferred method (though a full espresso based menu is available). This is their second location, just off Main Street, finished in 100 year old barn wood and hand made flooring.

A labour of love from the Kawai family, former owners of North Van's Kokoru Sushi. Inside their cozy space, you'll discover nearly everything is hand-made, from the pottery, the tea cozies (served with each latte), and even the furniture. Excellent (often matcha-infused) baking is a daily affair here, and Japanese-quality beans from "Hand Works Coffee" are fair, fresh, fungus-free. Japanese salads, sandwiches, and rice bowls are served at lunchtime.
