Run by industry veterans, Caffe Cittadella is a surefire spot for that "perfect rendition" of your drink of choice...every single time. And regulars know this, hence the morning line-up. Gluten-free Eightfold Eats and To Die For loaves are two of the quality baked goods on offer.

Milano (Mount Pleasant)

Milano 8th Ave Interior

This is home-base for master roaster Brian Turko, who's been perfecting his craft for decades. He's a cream-of-the-crop coffee artisan who can take up to 12 coffee bean varietals and blend them into world class Italian espresso. With eight different espressos on-tap daily, Milano on 8th Avenue offers a tasting bar experience unlike any other in Vancouver.

Matchstick (Mount Pleasant)

Matchstick Cafe Mount Pleasant Location

639 E 15th Ave | 604-558-0639 $ | Coffee Shop

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 imaging." It's less of a focus, but I say their in-house vegan baked goods options are as delicious as their hand-crafted, single-origin coffees. As their cafe is often packed, seats can be hard to snag.

Elysian (Mount Pleasant)

Daily house-made almond milk means these guys make a mean latte served in their absolutely adorable corner store/cafe.
