Elysian Coffee may make one of the best espresso coffees in the city. Whether your espresso drink of choice is an americano, latte, cappuccino or whatever, Elysian will do a killer job. I tend to go for americanos and they are fantastic: nice crema on top, and no burnt or bitter taste.
This location is small and can get busy during popular movie times with the 5th Avenue cinema around the corner. They have cozy little booths to relax and drink your coffee inside. Enjoy!
Vancouver has tonnes of independent coffee cafe's. Elysian is a bit of tranquility off of Burrard Street. They stock quality coffee's, organic tea's and baked goods sourced from local bakeries. I stepped in here after watching a movie and really loved the pear green tea I tried. This place stuck out enough from all the other cafe's I've visited that I will be sure to return.
