49th Parallel Coffee is arguably the most acclaimed coffee roaster in Vancouver. It’s a bit like being a famous gunfighter in the Old West — there’s always some punk ambling into town looking to make a name for himself. So while the young’uns have been playing with their beakers, 49th fired back with a slick room on Main that seems both new and like it was always there. Most love the coffee, some don’t, but it’s still top dog. It’s now matched with the hip and retro Lucky’s Doughnuts: the little circles are handmade — you can actually see them being formed — and have au courant toppings like salted caramel.
