The set up is very reminiscent of Manhattan styled cafes and ‘to go’ style places – meaning they have a self serve area of cold drinks, sandwiches, juices. They also have an array of gluten-free treats and other delicious things.
I came a little early before a meeting and decided to pop in and give it a try. I ordered a cappucino and a bacon cheddar scone. The cappuccino ($3.10) is served in an 8oz cup and boy does it give you a buzz! The espresso was roasted perfectly without tasting too bitter and the milk was foamy and creamy.
The bacon cheddar scone ($3.65) is a fairly decent size, priced about the same as any coffee shop here in Gastown. The scone had a good buttery flavour with the saltiness of the bacon (which wasn’t crispy but soft!) and some onion and green onion.
It’s a little loud so it’s a good place to have a conversation or a meeting but definitely not a place you want to study or do some quiet work. Whenever I pass by here it’s also pretty busy, even when I arrived before 6pm it was packed.
