A gorgeous chapel dedicated to the art of coffee-making from four brothers (Matt, George, John, Chris), scions all of the Giannakos family that begat West Vancouver’s always busy Crema. The room is a testament to how much vintage, woody charm can be squeezed into a diminutive, kitchenless 50-seater. Coffee and pastries are had on ceiling-suspended bench booths under three world maps painstakingly created with silver and copper-coloured nails. The crew love their classic vinyl, so expect to hear some. Few do coffee this seriously, and even better, they aren’t the least evangelical, despite their seven different brew methods and curated beans ground á la minute per order. It’s expensive but rapturous.
