Continental Coffee offers what some Vancouverites argue to be the best cuppa joe in the city — not to mention a welcome break from the “big box” coffee shops that dot many of the Lower Mainland’s street corners. With a thick, rich, not overly acidicespresso that tastes almost sweet, large, creamy double lattes for under $3, and whip cream-topped hot chocolates that’ll have you at first sip, Continental is the place to go for well-priced, quality java.
While you may come to Continental for the coffee, it’s almost certain you’ll wind up staying for the local colour. Located on the corner of East 2nd Avenue andCommercial Drive, the café features floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of comfy cozy chairs and, on sunny days, outdoor seating for as much people watching as you please.
With lots of seating and tons of table space available, Continental is a fan favourite when it comes to reading, studying or doing some work in public. Not only does the retailer offer no-cost wireless Internet connectivity to java junkies with Wi-Fi equipped laptops and notebooks, it also provides free wireless connections to customers who like to stay a little more, well, “grounded.”
Take Note: Reservations are not accepted; outdoor/patio seating available if weather permits.
