Coffeebar (West Van)

Coffeebar West Van Interior

Coffeebar's spacious second location is an ideal work environment with free wifi and plenty of well-lit seating. Thanks to 49th Parallel beans and well-trained baristas, you'll be one happy, caffeinated customer.


1495 Bellevue Ave | 604-922-2294 $$ | Coffee Shop

The Giannakos family loves coffee in a mad scientist kind of way. At their seaside space, they spend lots of time tweaking, sipping, tasting and evaluating to ensure great tasting coffee every time. With six single-origin coffees from three world-class roasters (JJ Bean, Phil & Sebastian and Ecco Caffe), you simply can't not love Crema. Visit their downtown sister location, Revolver, for more of the same good stuff.

Moja Coffee (North Van)

1412 Rupert St | 604-983-6652 $ | Coffee Shop

This is Moja's home-base with a roastery in the back (expect that knee-weakening "fresh espresso' aroma) and a small cafe front. Since opening, this independently-owned roastery has made waves, earning themselves a reputation as one of the city's top roasters. And as the only cafe Thomas Haas will wholesale his famous croissants to, Moja's quality obviously extends to their baked goods selection, too.

Thomas Haas (North Van)

Thomas Haas hot chocolate and sparkle cookie

128-998 Harbourside Drive | 604-924-1847 $$ | Patisserie / Chocolaterie

Despite being off-the-beaten-path, this tiny bakery cafe is packed just about every hour of every day they're open -- and expectedly so with a pastry chef like Thomas Haas at the helm. Try a double baked almond croissant with a smooth Moja latte. Heaven.

Temper Chocolate and Pastry

Temper Chocolate and Pastry Stumptown

2409 Marine Dr | 604-281-1152 $$ | Bakery Cafe

@temperpastry | Visit website

Finally a truly excellent cafe and patisserie for West Van. With a patio out front, this is Dundarave's summer hot spot. Serving Stumptown Coffee and Pastry Chef Steven Hodge's high-quality creations, Temper is easily one of the city's most delicious cafe-style destinations.
