Cafe Orso in Deep Cove

Cafe Orso Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoThe wordmark is a bit hard to read, but I do like the cute bear. A wooden carved bear stands at the entrance door to welcome everyone in. As I had read in other reviews, it was slick, modern, and clean. A higher-end cafe than your everyday Starbucks. Yet, it had a very comfortable feeling. The slightly hipsterish staff were bustling around as the cafe seemed quite popular.

I was expecting an assortment of different types of berries, but it was only strawberries – though there’s nothing wrong with strawberries. It was really delicious. Not too sweet, and the right firmness/density to the waffles.

The food/drink was great as we chatted and watched pedestrians walk by as we sat by the window. This is a must-visit if you’re in Deep Cove. Yes, slightly different atmosphere from the cafes closer to the water. But if you enjoy hip, modern with a relaxed atmosphere with delightful interior design, check it out.

We spent our late afternoon by the waters, and as we were about to leave Deep Cove, we noticed that there was a live band in the cafe. On their website, you can see who’s playing on Sunday evenings. They recommend you reserve a table as it can quickly fill up!
