Changing Chinatown Cafes

With our office based in Chinatown, we’ve become all too familiar with the restaurant options around this neighbourhood. Having frequented these places on multiple occasions- coffee breaks, meetings, lunch breaks -rest assured that each of the places mentioned on our list contain some of the tastiest menu items in this neck of the woods. And by woods we mean city.

Matchstick Coffee Roasters – 213 E Georgia Street & 639 E 15 Ave (Fraser & Kingsway), Vancouver

Almond croissant and a London Fog, always. If not, they’ve got delicious hand-crafted coffees, other baked treats like scones and cookies, as well as fresh salads for lunch.

 Caffe Brixton – 212 E Georgia Street, Vancouver

The sandwiches here are toasted to perfection. We highly recommend the curried chicken or the spicy capicolli.
