My search for the perfect coffee in Vancouver continues. It’s early days yet, so I haven’t made if out of downtown (it’ll happen). Or off Davie St really (that’ll happen too). But for the moment, here’s my latest coffee adventure.
REVIEW: Coo Coo Coffee
477 Davie St
Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Down the Yaletown end of Davie St is Coo Coo Coffee. I’d walked past it so many times that as soon as I saw the reviews on Yelp I knew exactly which café they were talking about. The cute little patio with a wrought iron fence out the front, always with one or two people looking relaxed and enjoying the sunshine; as much people watching those going by as they are being watched by the foot traffic. It was inevitable that I stop by.
On the inside the café isn’t very big. That being said it’s couches and a bench top you can sit at, it’s unlikely you’ll have trouble finding a seat, even in bad weather. They offer a range of baked treats and lunch time snacks; I had a scone myself which was nice but nothing to write home about. More importantly though, the coffee was better. It had a nice, strong flavour and as soon as you took a sip, you knew you were drinking an espresso. It was a little thinner than I’d personally like, so I can’t say it’s my favourite coffee in town. But I’ve been there a couple of times now and it’s a reliably good coffee, which definitely counts for something. Also with the free wifi and relaxed staff it’s become my go to café in the area.
