There are quite a few Artigiano’s in Vancouver, so if you love their flavor and particular ways they brew coffee or extract a shot, you are in luck. While each store can taste quite differently, at least its the same beans.
This store is in the heart of Kerrisdale and that itself makes it a worthwhile little suburb to visit. Kerrisdale is quaint and has lots of independent retailers and stores.
Many a good barista has come out of this group of stores. Great coffee and good atmosphere, its hard to beat unless you really desire an indie type place.
