Gastown is the place in Vancouver for hip third wave coffee. While there are a lot of coffee shops on Commercial, or on Main Street, Gastown has seen many a new coffee place in the past few years. Bird and Beets is very much like 33 Acres in that it serves quality food as well as quality coffee. They do not pretend to be a roaster, but they focus on home made. They even bake their bread on site and pretty much everything else is homemade at the store. They were offering espresso from Bows X Arrows “The Hathaway”. The barista and staff were very friendly and warm. The place is comfy with a front small room for a quick drink and a larger more lounge like area in the back. So for a snack, breakfast or coffee this is a great place to go to.
