Epic76 reviewed 49th Parallel
A mere 10 minute ride away on the #4 bus from downtown Vancouver is 49th Parallel cafe. It's the biggest cafe I've visited in this city to date, clearly established to showcase their roasts. Espresso, drip and syphon available. I had a cappuccino of their signature "Epic" blend and an espresso of their organic offering. The latter was really great and drank as advertised whilst the cappuccino wasn't that flash. Not the best extraction and into a cold cup. No formal food offerings, pastries only. Classic "modern" fitout with dark chocolate wood tones and a sexy Mirage on the bench. The service was warm and sincere. My #3 in the 'couve.
