Best of East Van Coffee Shops!

Ahh with all of the options on Main St, Commercial Drive and Mount Pleasant, how did we come to name one in each area? Because we’ve tried them out. Not to say the others are bad, but the coffee shops below are our favourites..


49th Parallel on Main St wins thanks to their atmosphere, great lattes and Lucky’s doughnuts. They’ve managed to re-work the classic coffee shop into something cool, comfortable and worthy of an Instagram photo to tell everyone where you’re enjoying your morning.

Little Nest on Commercial Drive was a favourite until it recently closed it’s doors. A welcoming atmosphere for families and residents alike – the menu was smaller but very approachable with some of the best service in the city.

Cafe Calabria takes the top spot in Commercial-Grandview. Imagine getting cappucinos and sandwiches from Cappucino and Sandwich Pros. Also serving great gelato and pastries (this is a great spot to indulge in a biscotti and coffee).

Matchstick Coffee Roasters takes the cake (I mean, pain au chocolat) in the Fraser area. Knowledgeable staff, communal tables – a definite favourite for those in the neighbourhood and those willing to travel to enjoy a good pour over and croissant.

Just straddling the beginning of East Van is the new Lost + Found Cafe on Hastings (Downtown). The first time I went I ordered a BLT, and then they asked me which delicious bun I wanted it on (I choose cheese, but there was also spinach & feta and others) – that solidified my love of this place. Until I was served my lunch which came with an incredible side salad (think real parmesan and fresh ingredients). This place nails it. Cool interior too.


The Sandwich at Lost + Found. Delicious bun, delicious, flavourful salad and great coffee to go with.
