As Aussie flat-white/cappuccino fans, we thought this place might deliver the goods. Alas, the coffee was bitter, strangely flavoured, and served warm rather than hot. Very disappointing for a place that was supposedly Vancouver's 5th ranked place for coffee. Also, service and staff not particularly helpful or friendly, and no WiFi.
In Vancouver a caffe latte is a 10fl oz and if you want a latte you ask for a cappuccino . Artigiano fits this description. So we ordered a cappuccino and while the making and end product looked good, the coffee had a really bitter taste. This one was part of a Vancouver chain and the atmosphere was more like a star bucks than an artisan coffee cafe. Service is basic - buy your coffee then line up like Hudson's and wait for the barista to pour your coffee and hand it to you.
I just loved the 5 group Linea in this place! Holy Smokes...that puppy could pump out some espresso with a team doing a dance around each other! I tried a Classic Capp (short with foamy top-no art) and the Artigiano Capp which is still short but with art. More flat white style for you Aussies. Both awesome. The deco is starting to show its age now but hey...you don't just go to a cafe for decor do you?
