There’s no option to review the Lonsdale location. Why in the world would a coffee shop not open until 9am on a Monday morning? My roast was sour. Blah. Another hipster coffee joint.

This was a favourite from a short trip to Vancouver. We had coffee and breakfast and were really happy with both. A great place to meet friends or go to solo.

Delicious cafe mocha but the food items I wanted were no longer available towards the end of the day.

This was a quick, first visit towards 5pm, closing hour. So they were running out of many bites but the coffee was a good blend and had the authentic taste. Minimalist interior design, enough space with different searings, attentive service, in the core of the...downtown. Deserves the second visit.More

Nemesis Coffee is generally considered one of the best coffee shops in Vancouver. It's located in the Gastown district. It did not disappoint on today's visit. I would rate the espresso quality as being a 8.5 or 9 overall. The drinks are well prepared, and...they have good latte art. The pastries exceed expectations. They have a large variety, and the food quality seems high. Nemesis also has a very chill hang out vibe. It's a good place to spend time with people or work remotely.More

As soon as I walked in the door, it seemed to be my kind of place. From the hip hop references that surround the workspace, to the smile on the faces of the employees while they make small talk with the patrons and deliver the...goods. I like the idea of the different roasters that come together and are offered. The espresso was almost a perfect temperature, with a superb balance. I think I could sit and taste their different single origins for a full day. I had a piccolo/cortado to go, and the milk was again a great temperature and poured to perfection, this was a different bean than the espresso and a little on the acidic side, but it paired nicely with the milk. I wish we could have returned, as I noticed they had a Superflux beer on tap as well, which would have made the visit pretty darn great. The food that was being delivered, seemed to be received with positive reviews. Definitely will return on the next trip back to Vancouver, in a city with a fair amount of choice for Espresso, this does seem like a stand out.More

Loved this place. Very unique menu for breakfast with lots of ability to customize it. I had the cauliflower hash done gluten free, which was great. I'm not a coffee drinker, so can't really comment on that, but others in our group were and spoke...highly of it.More

Nemesis is good, really good. I love the space, vibe on point. The biggest problem is decision making. Everything including drinks are scratch made. I had a killer unsweetened herbal lemonade and loved it. The pastries rock and food is on point. Service was efficient...and friendly. Have a blast here.

This place came with a very good recommendation and really it didn't disappoint. They know how to make a flat white and it was really very good, but was in too small a glass, but if you're looking for good coffee in Vancouver, you can't...go far wrong here.More
