I've been to this JJ Bean location a few times (4), and each time I've noticed that the staff seem quite uninterested in the customers.
Rather than interacting with clients, I've noticed their interest in carrying on conversation amongst themselves and not making any effort to make the customer feel welcomed. They make a hell of a coffee, but I really think that the staff (sorry to generalize) could use a pep talk. With some many other cafes in the area, it could do them some good to smile!
On one instance, I noticed they were out of my favourite muffin. I could see into the kitchen and noticed a bunch of muffins that looked like they came out of the oven. I ordered a muffin and the lady says "take a look at the display, we're out...". I responded by asking if those muffins (pointing in the kitchen) were ready. Without saying anything, she walks back, bags one, and tells me my total.
In addition to their great coffee...they make a mean carrot and raisin muffin!!

I've been to Nuba a few times and their consistency is always impressive. Generous portions, nice flavours, and one of Vancouver's best Middle Eastern eateries. Fresh ingredients and an effort to be "local" is appreciated.
We've also tried their location on 3rd & Main, and find it to be a great take-out location.
