Drinking Chocolate.

How could anyone say no to that? Also, any chance to chat with the lovely Alex (who discovered this lovely find) is always a win in my books. Additionally, East Van Roasters is a non-profit initiative that provides employment to the women living in the Rainier Hotel.

Asides from organic drinking chocolate, they offer coffee, hand rolled trufles, single-origin chocolate bars and pastries. The space is lovely and definitely has that Gastown, exposed brick vibe to it.

I thoroughly enjoyed my drinking chocolate, it wasn’t super sweet like you would expect from those higher end coffee shops.

The taste is light and slightly sweet but with the full cocoa taste to it. It definitely is a slow sipping experience, which is marvelous when you have a lot of catching up to do!
