A cute little cafe and sandwich shop located just outside of Granville Island. Connected to the Absolutely Fabulous Foods catering company, More Please... is a wonderful alternative to Starbucks and Granville Island's tourist traps.
I am disturbed by how thoroughly happy I am with More Please... Cafe opening right near my place of work. For two years, I have been forced to consume the corporate caffine that Starbucks siphons to the masses at 2nd and Anderson, at the entrance to Granville Island. Like a sucker, I slogged down to Starbucks day after day, dreaming of a better life involving independent coffeeshops and variation in my daily snack time.
Well, my friends, let me tell you that there is now a spring in my step as I hit the sidewalk every coffee break, for More Please... and its owner Coco have provided a gastronomical oasis from Starbucks, with its bulk roasting and mass-produced baked goods.
More Please...is affiliated with Absolutely Fabulous Foods (aka AbFab Catering) and it offers espresso-based drinks, filtered coffee, panini, hot entrees (shepherd's pie, mac n' cheese, lasagna, etc), soup and great baked goods. Baked goods are incredibly important to me, and I am impressed with Coco's chocolate zucchini loaf and silver dollar cookies.
Reasonable prices + independent operator + freshly baked treats + convenient location = freedom from The Man
