I love Cafe Artigiano...it is my favourite cafe in Vancouver to sit and relax and have hot chocolate...which is by far the BEST hot chocolate I have ever had in my life. The lattes are impressive as well and they do foam art that is a wonderful added touch. I am not sure how their coffee is as I don't really drink coffee so couldn't really say whether it is better than others. I love the atmosphere though and it is a great place to sit and chat with friends on a cold day.
This is one of my favourite cafes in Vancouver. They offer gourmet salads and sandwiches and excellent coffee. Prices are reasonable. They often feature special/limited edition coffee beans which you can order by the cup or order the beans and brew it at home. Some of these coffees can cost $5-10/cup or over $100/lb for the beans. I really appreciate coffee (it's my version of wine) so I appreciate the special varieties that they bring in and the write ups they have describing the flavour notes that are characteristic of each of the coffee beans.
This is a popular spot for the lunch time crowd or for the coffee connoisseur. The baristas do latte art and their lattes are one of the best in the city. If you’re really into your coffee (or a coffee snob like me) this is definitely the café to go to. They also have other locations around the city.
This is a nice cozy cafe - perfect for a rainy day or when you need some time to sit and enjoy a hot beverage. The coffee is good and they do foam art, but I wouldn't say it's the best coffee I've tried. Still, I liked that and the lemon blueberry muffin and yogurt parfait I had to go with it for breakfast. This location has a nice outdoor patio as well.
It's certainly much better than Starbucks, for the same price or less. I'd love to see a chain like this in Toronto.
