Once again we found a gem! If you read our review we search for mom and pop shops “a block off” the main areas. Bingo! Another one! This is off Hastings-well-1/2 a block..!!
A STRONG sense of community, early opening, outstanding, personable outgoing staff, fresh/hot...baking (the croissants are ...well..YOU try to not have one...yum), amazing gluten free muffins as well a freshly made sandwiches. Oh, the coffee choices are many, with an artful touch to anything involving an espresso.
Why did we review this place? It exemplifies everything we value. There is Timmy Ho’s and a Starbucks close by...the locals come HERE! We were in the area for only 4 days and this place became our daily starting point.
Go out of your way to stop by! It will be worth it!!!!
Dank ja wel to the entire staff!!More
The service is friendly and prompt. The owners work there so the shop is well supervised and well run. The staff has proper supervision.
My big complaint is that you need a wifi code to use their wifi. They give you a code if you...request one when you make a purchase. I get why they have to do it because people sit in there just to use the wifi but it's such a nuisance to those of us who have trouble seeing our keypads. lol.
But it's a great place to go for a coffee, especially on a sunny day as there is outdoor seating.More
Met friends for Sunday morning coffee and pastries. Good coffee and tead, great pastries especially the cinnamon rolls, friendly staff, and eclectic shop. Small and intimate, it can get crowded but if the weather is good you can enjoy the outside. Close to the PNE...and about 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver.More
I often visit for coffee meetings and am always amazed at how busy the place is! The staff are super friendly and there's a camaraderie with the locals who all seem to be regulars. Very family friendly too. Going to grab lunch next time!
Laughing Bean is a great local stop to fuel up on caffeine. Their lattes are consistent and good. We’ve eaten the Mexican breakfast burrito which was filling though a little bland. Plenty of baked goods to choose from. Plenty of locals walk through and the...staff are friendly and welcoming. Shop itself has lots of natural light and the patio is great for people-watching. Conveniently located near the PNE.More
