Americanos always perfect, but definitely splurge and try some of the amazing chocolate drink options.
Awesome, friendly staff. Yummy coffee and treats. Supports a beautiful cause. My personal recommendation is to try a roasted cocoa bean because i found it mind blowing.
Today I was visiting some cafes that offered specialty hot chocolates as part of the annual Vancouver hot chocolate festival. My journey downtown brought me to “East Van Roasters”, a cafe I would have never heard of, or thought to visit if not for the #hotchocolatefest”. A cafe, that despite its name, operates in Gastown. They specialize in chocolate and coffee and operate under the title of a “chocolate cafe”.
A PHS non-profit initiative, they train and are employed by women living at the Rainier hotel. They have excellent coffee and chocolates. I regularly buy their EVR espresso for my morning coffee at home. The flavours are very rich, deep and balanced. I rarely drink coffee during the day but every now and again I'll pop in for a small Americano and an Aloha Crunch square (think high end, dark chocolate Skor bar with Sea salt).
