Best Cappuccino on Commercial Drive
By BigAnthony of North Burnaby (106 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, March 11, 2013 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

I've been to most of the coffee shops on commercial drive and this one makes the best cappuccino IMO. They offer a "traditional cappuccino" that is 5oz and is perfect.
They have real baristas working who know their stuff. Anyone can just pour espresso and milk into a cup but here they time their espresso pour, steam their milk to a proper micro foam and blend the drink properly with the pour, the perfectly poured latter art on top is the icing on the cake. If you just looking for a great cup then this is the place.

Great Coffee, Great Location & Setup

I really like Prado. A lot of people consider it the standard for coffee in Vancouver, but I wouldn't go that far. I go there most mornings for an Americano and the odd muffin. You can't go wrong with their fresh muffins just after 7AM.

The service is good. They used to have a reputation for being snooty, but I think that's really turned around the past year. Are the baristas as good as the snootier ones? Hit and miss - I find the odd grounds in my coffee and they use 49th Parallel coffee which is pretty sensitive in terms of how the shot is pulled (so I hear).

Along with Continental Coffee, Bump N Grind and the Italian shops on the Drive, this is a great place to swing in and have a nice cup. Wireless is typically available, if not from Prado, then a neighbour has one unlocked. There aren't many power outlets if you're into camping out.

Free Wifi

OK. I think I finally get this place, it’s the free wifi. The coffee and snacks are fine. Minimalist aesthetic is welcome from the more trendy commercial drones. Quietish. Maybe not the best place for a meet and chat up, but if you’re flying solo this is defo your local.
