Easy access in Granville Market with a lineup just long enough to know that the coffee at JJ Bean is good. The roast is mellow, strong enough to feel like full bodied coffee but not overly burnt. Service is quick and friendly. A reliable coffee with no attitude.

Love the dark roast and rich aroma. Just the right amount of caffeine to perk you up. I had a soy latte and it was superb. Would recommend you grab a coffee here first before you begin your tour of the Granville market.

We had one in Granville Island Market and it is a rich dark coffee (ours was anyway). I didn't see any other shops but I wasn't looking specifically for them but like many other independant coffee shops in Canada the beans are roasted very well.

Excellent choice of beans to suit all tastes. We always bring some home. Also if you buy beans or ground you get a free coffee of your choice.

Finally got a chance to try JJ Bean, and was glad I did. Just had an americano and it was super smooth and tasted delicious. Would I recommend going? Yes, way way better than Tim Hortons!

Best coffee in my 24 days away! We found a good cup of coffee like we have at home hard to find, until we found JJ Bean.

Great dark roasts...more on the robust and bitter side. I usually buy the beans in the back and ship them to my family in Alberta as well. Great baked goods. The muffins are a bit greasy but huge and delicious!

This is a must stop in the market at Granville Island. Love their Mochas! It is at one of the southern entrances to the market - don't miss it!

This was a stop on the Granville Island Market Tour and was excellent. Take the tour and get great samples before buying. Good stuff. Great way to start the tour, fresh coffee. Bold coffee, great flavor. Was brewed strong but not so strong that it is bitter. They know how to brew their own coffee and it makes a difference.... More

Stopped here as part of our Granville Island Food Tour. The coffee was described as the best in Vancouver. Not sure about that but it was very good made with the French press method. If you need a good caffein hit while on Granville you won't go wrong here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
