The first thing you need to know about Kitsilano is there’s a dress code. It’s yoga pants… always yoga pants. Kits is an amazingly popular area of town to be seen if you have chiselled abs and stunning features, so it goes without saying that some of the best coffee shops in town are here. Be sure to have done some sort of ridiculously over the top “zero-g spin with barbells in a 60-degree room” fitness class before going to any of these cafes. #workhardplayhard.
Note – throughout this article I’ll be comparing the Siply price vs the regular price of a couple of drinks. Siply is a new app I made that saves you amazing amounts of money in coffee shops. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below or email me if you want to know more.
1822 W 1st Ave
Coffee: Phil and Sebastian
Brew Styles: Espresso, Filter and Clever Dripper. Amazing London Fogs.
Olive and Ruby is honestly one of the most visually appealing coffee shops in Vancouver, with a giant wall mural, loads (and I mean LOADS) of greenery everywhere and a great sign telling you that you’re sexy as you go to use the loos! Amazing vegan food and coffee from Pallet complete this as an essential place to visit in the area.
Pallet Coffee Roasters
2002 West Broadway
Coffee: House Roasted
Brew styles: Espresso, filter and pour over
Pallet won our 2017 Coffee Roaster of the Year award, and rightly so, as their beans are fantastic. There’s a bevvy of brunch options as well as plenty of sweet treats that you won’t eat because you’re a Kitsilano dweller and survive on dust so you can fit into the aforementioned yoga pants.
The Only Cafe
2678 W 4th Ave
Brew styles: Espresso, filter and the only place I know that has a Royal Belgian Pot. Click here to read our review
Pants down the fanciest way to drink coffee I’ve ever had is the Belgian pot. As you can imagine from the photos, you’ll want to go there just to say you’ve had this kind of coffee. You also want to get this sh*t on Instagram, because your followers are going to love how sophisticated you are.
