Restaurants We Love - 49th Parallel

I mentioned in my last Market Update that "49th Parallel on the corner of West 4th and Yew is where the cool kids hang out." But I failed to mention why this place is so damn cool!

The West 4th cafe is in the heart of Kitsilano. It boasts a gorgeous covered patio, lots of live plants, and ample natural light. You'll find a flurry of freelancers flocking the doors at 7:00am to snatch a seat by the window (with a plug) to get an early start to their day. An hour or so later, the locals wander in with that days newspaper tucked under their arm. Not long after, the line pratically stretches out the door as the 9-5er's grab their brew to go. Then after a nice yoga sesh at Semperviva Yoga Studio, the yogis stroll in with their inevitable yoga high vibes.

Be it an Americano, latte, or classic drip, you'll certainly start your day off right with your favourite caffeinated beverage from 49th. Don't be shy, and strike up a conversation in line with some of Kits "cool kids." When in doubt, ask which Lucky Donut they'd recommend. Me? I'd suggest the Classic Old Fashioned. Molly? She goes for the Cold Brew Cruller ... one for the coffee lovers!

Open Monday to Thursday 7:00am – 7:00pm and Friday to Sunday 7:00am – 8:00pm, 49th Parallel is a great place to hang, get some work done, or meet up for a solid catch up with good pals! We'll see you there!
