The Vancouver Sun just came out with a list of the so-called ‘cream of Vancouver coffee shops‘.

The criteria seems to be: independently owned, has coffee. The title of the article seems to imply that you will get the ‘creme de la creme’ of coffee shops, but in reality it’s just a listing. Each listing talks about atmosphere, for the most part.

I had a quick glance through their list of 10 ‘top’ coffee shops and spotted a few I would never dream of having a good cup of coffee.

Perhaps the article should be renamed ‘good Vancouver hangouts’ instead.
