Favourite Coffee Shops: Mount Pleasant

Coffee Shops in Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant is one of my favourite areas in the city to hit a coffee shop (we’re really spoiled with good coffee shops in Vancouver). They’re always buzzing, vibrant and interesting. It’s also a big area with a few distinct neighbourhoods, so I’ve broken down by fave shops by area.

“SoMa”

  • 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters
    • Incredible coffee, Cartem’s doughnuts and a nice room and patio. You’ll like it here.
  • JJ Bean Coffee Roasters
    • Another big room, with a cozy fireplace and good coffee and food. You  can spend some time here.
  • Gene Coffee Bar
    • A really unique coffee shop in a true Mount Pleasant location. It’s great for people watching thanks to the triangle shaped room and sunny outdoor bench. 
  • Kafka’s
    • There are two locations of Kafka’s in Mount Pleasant: one off Main St and a new one of Great Northern Way. You’ll find good food and good coffee, and you’ll be amongst great conversation.

Chinatown

  • Dalina
    • An Italian inspired restaurant and coffee shop with proper drinks, great lunches and a small tuck shop.
  • Aubade Coffee
    • An amazing little spot located in the “Space Lab” antique shop, perfect to peruse interesting things with a good brew.
