Epicurean Delicatessen Caffé
Arieanna gives it ****(4/4 stars)

Coffee 79%
Atmosphere 86%
Service 81%

This is up there with my favourites. The coffee is all espresso based on a very lovely machine that creates a true crema. I have gone a few times for their Americanos and today tried one of their pastries, the Apple Bundle. I think the coffee is very smooth with just a little punch. What I love about Epicurean, though, has got to be the atmosphere. It is a hot spot here in Kitsilano, always bustling with people. The decor is fabulous and the food is highly rated, especially their paninis.

I will post an update later in the week on their breakfasts: I hear they are very good.
