After 3 weeks of very ordinary coffee in the States, this was probably the best I had tried in that time . Good coffee and enjoyed outdoor atmosphere.

Have had coffee here on numerous occasions...always good and reasonably prices. The location is a touch awkward but that can be the norm in Gas Town

JJ Bean has been a massive disappointment. I don't like Starbucks and I have been here twice. Each time, my go to drink, an Americano, has been terrible. The coffee had no flavour and tasted burnt.

JJ Bean has the best coffee in Vancouver! You also have to try their pastries and their muffins are to diw for - I highly recommend their oatmeal raspberry muffin.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
