If you are looking just for a simple drip coffee and a snack you can’t go wrong. Great outdoor patio for people watching.

Bad service and bad coffee. Proclaims to be "Proudly Canadian" yet there's a picture of Amsterdam on the wall. Go to Starbucks, two blocks up or two blocks down to Bean Around the World.

There are so many good places to go to get free wifi (and good coffee). Why go here. Coffee consistently mediocre. Food not much better. Staff is nice though.

Searching for a quick breakfast before the day's sightseeing, we found this coffee shop which served good black coffee and also a croissant and breakfast samosa to go with it. Friendly service accompanied the food. Quick and easy!

Had delicious Costa Rican medium roast coffee and veggie breakfast sandwich (the "bread" was an English muffin. Both were delicious!

This coffee shop was very convenient to our hotel. I guess I expected something special but it is just a cup of coffee, nothing special.

I love this coffee shop. The staff are always happy and friendly. Seating is comfortable. Parking isn't the easiest but that's not Waves fault.

This was our first stop in Vancouver, its very well decorated, big comfy chairs large windows so you can see the world go by even if the weather is not so good (heavy rain while we were there). Hot drinks with maple syrup was great....More
