Timbertrain Coffee Roasters

Timbertrain Coffee Roasters Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoLocated in the trendy area of Gastown, the interior continues this nostalgic, vintage look. The booths are creatively designed so that the seats can be shared from both sides.

I ordered the Latte $4.50. It was super creamy and super flavourful. It was good as coffee in Europe, which is hard to find in Vancouver. Nicely done latte art too.

My friend who seemed to know a lot about coffee asked detailed questions about her coffee. The staff was very knowledgeable.

Must return again!

Platform 7 on Broadway

Platform 7 Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter discovering the one in Granview area, I wanted to also check out the one on Broadway. Again, the interior was built to look like a platform at a train station. Such a unique cafe, I love it! Unlike the other one, this one was less crowded, though it could have been because it was a weekday early evening. The place is clean and has a hipsterish feel. The concrete wall is fake, but it’s still fun to be in a Disney-like feel.

The Iced Americano was really good and pretty large. It was good that we were sharing it! The pastries and desserts were limited, and none that were appealing to me (more appealing to Sheepie who is into the tarts, muffins, nutty things, etc.)

The service is friendly with all the staff smiling and saying thank you or goodbye when leaving. We’ll be back! A great place to bring people from out of town to a unique, memorable cafe.
