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.

Gallery Cafe

Gallery Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter living in downtown for so long, and visiting the gallery several times, I don’t know how I missed going to this cafe. It can be easily missed as it is on top of the gallery.

The cafe was pretty bare. It had an European cafe feel, and had a high-end charm. We each had a piece of dessert with Coffee $2.25. Nice presentation! The chocolate cake was really creamy and tasty. Mmmmmmm!

Since it was warm, we sat out on the patio. Definitely would come back again for sure!

Caffe Artigiano

Caffe Artigiano Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI used to think that this cafe was really high end when I first moved to Vancouver over a decade ago. Wow! A lot has changed since then, in terms of competition amongst the coffee/cafe market and as well as my tastes after getting into the foodie world. idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings1 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings2 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings3 idearabbit_caffe_artigiano_hatings4Their coffee is good, but I am not a fan of their old-restaurant-bathroom-tile-floor-table top. It’s bumpy and not that great for eating on top, and doesn’t look appealing. The brick walls has the old hipsterish feel, along with their vintage decor.
