Friends! Raise your coffee cups high, careful not to spill a drop as we toast the perfect croissant, abscond with a scone, indulge plaisir from an eclair and go bananas for banana bread.

Our myriad of neighbourhood cafés offer fresh baked goods that are little bits of heaven on a plate. Gastown is known for serving some of the best available coffee in the city and perhaps less known for the delicious baking that comes from its ovens.

Each place has something special and your job is to go and try it all!
