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!
