The menu at Coco et Olive is simply mouth watering. Sticking with the style of the French café, the goods are always freshly-made and of the highest quality. Along with designer teas and huge steaming cups of Intelligentsia-brand coffee (voted best roaster in North America 2008), you can sample a wide variety of savory and sweet delights. Coco et Olive offers 15 different paninis, soups, French-inspired salads, cheese plates, tarts, galettes, cheesecakes, and a huge list of other seasonal goodies.
Gourmet Odds and Ends
Along with a delicious morsel to go, you may want to pick up some of your own cooking ingredients as well. Coco et Olive also sells a combination of house-made, imported and locally produced gourmet ingredients, such as oils, herbs, salts, olives, specialty crackers, vinegars, pastas, fine cheeses, preserves, condiments, and chocolates. Pick up loose tea, French sparkling ciders, and fresh coffee beans while you’re at it.
Joanne Facchin and her husband run the café together. Joanne’s extensive culinary background includes a stint in France and also work as a food stylist and recipe developer for Vancouver Magazine and Western Living Magazine. Together, they have created a casual café atmosphere serving fine quality products at reasonable prices.
