I've said it before and I'll say it again, there's just something so magical about a coffee shop. The scent of dark roast espresso bathing the air, the indistinct sound of background chatter and keyboards typing away, and then the distinct direct chatter between you and your BFF of "OMG so who's the new guy?!!" or your own keyboard typing away.
And the thing about coffee shops is that the cuter, the cozier, the more Instagrammable, the better. But now the problem is, while there are multitudes adorable coffee shops all over Mount Pleasant and Gastown, the city's kind of left the rest of Vancouver in the dark. And if you're Surrey folk, you're cute coffee shop options are abysmal.
But not to fear! Cue in the newly opened West Village Cafe in South Surrey. All you Surrey babes finally have a super adorable spot to catch up with your girls or go for a study date...that's not Timmy's or Starbucks.
The menu at West Village Cafe is stacked. From their own signature West Village Roasters coffee to freshly made smoothies, brekkie bowls and avo toasts to local wine and brews, this is definitely the spot to spend breakfast over work and camp until afternoon tea with friends.
And not to mention, the interior is Instagram friendly AF. The space is beautiful and bright with tons of natural lighting beaming in (hint, the only way to take the perfect foodie shot), the coffee art is supreme, and the decor is super modern, super green and simply plant-licious.
The staff are super friendly and locals are already raving about their to-die-for breakfast and sandwiches. They also have plenty of vegetarian friendly options if you're looking for them, like their Tumeric Cous Cous & Grapefruit and their Baked Falafel Wrap.
So what're you waiting for? Grab your bestie, or your laptop, and cop a seat at West Village Cafe.
West Village Cafe is located at #160-5620 152 St. in South Surrey. Open daily 8AM to 8PM.
