Two Great Coffee Shops

Bean Counters Coffee House is a great place to relax on your day off.  They brew 49th parallel roast, one of Vancouver’s finest coffees.  You can expect to pay a bit more for this premium roast but it’s well worth the money.  Bean Counters pairs excellent coffee with a pleasant atmosphere.  Jeffrey’s Coffee Shop is another great option with a full food menu – try their soups.
