In all the years we have been visiting Vancouver, I never get tired of discovering new coffee shops. No matter how many times we go, there is always a new shop or a rejuvenated shop popping up somewhere. It’s a never-ending coffee adventure.
On a particularly seasonal Sunday morning, I had a small entourage in tow with me this day, I needed coffee so off we went driving to Burnaby to check out a new placed Called Single V Coffee.
The shop itself has very minimal seating, 4 very comfy chairs in the front window, and a couple of other tables.
The have this cool old coffee roaster sitting up against the wall, but from what I was told, it is merely a decorative piece for the shop.
The interior is very modern and clean, my wife really loved some of the accent pieces they have around the shop.
Their coffee roaster of choice is Cat & Cloud out of California. They had 2 different espressos to choose from and 3 different other single origin coffees to choose from.
On this day I went with a Hand Drip $5.00 featuring the Brazilian Fazenda Rainha, mainly because I was intrigued by the tasting notes of Straight Peanut Butter and Jelly. I really didn’t get much in the way of a nutty taste as the barista said I would but the coffee was sweeter than I was expecting and overall was pretty smooth.
My wife ordered the Matcha Latte $5.00. Overall had some nice flavoring.
My son and his girlfriend (partner, or whatever is politically correct) was with us and the both ordered Lattes with the in house made hazelnut/cashew milk $6.00 each. They said the only thing lacking was the flavor of the hazelnut.
All the drinks came in some cool cat and mouse mugs specific to your drink.
We ordered a couple of items, we ordered the Maple Hazelnut Loaf, this was outstanding, such terrific flavors, I finished and wanted more. So Good.
We also order a Lemon Cranberry Scone, when we ordered we were told that it would be 25 minutes as they were just being cooked. This wasn’t a problem as we got there right after they opened that morning. Once the barista brought it over, it was very warm and had some nice flavoring but could have used a little more lemon but that is my wife’s preference, I tried it and thought it was terrific.
The service overall was pretty good. The barista was a pretty quiet guy. We really had to poke him to answer some questions.
Monday to Friday: 9:00am to 6:00pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10:00am to 6:00pm
Street parking only, the street is a dead end behind a school.
Overall I really like this place, atmosphere was cool, coffee was pretty good, the shop is a little off the beaten path and you could drive by and totally miss the place. I would think this place would be a favorite for the teachers from the school across the street.
