Meet the owner

In a neighbourhood where coffee shops are ubiquitous, Our Town has cornered the market on heart. The first location, in a heritage-listed building on Broadway at Kingsway, opened in 2003, and has become a beloved neighbourhood institution. From the deep and comfy chairs that line the windows to the many community events that the cafe hosts monthly, the spirit of community is alive and well at Our Town.

Owner Henry Lee, an accomplished classical musician (you can hear him play with the Yaletown String Quartet, among others), wouldn't have it any other way. "The Our Town building was built in 1930, and developed around the time when the themes of the [1937 Pulitzer Prize winning] play, living and interacting in a small town community, were still important."

That feeling of belonging extends from the friendly service behind the counter to the welcoming home that groups as diverse as the Ukulele Circle and the Letter Writing Club find at Our Town. The diverse clientele includes everyone in the neighbourhood — from students to professionals, hipsters to families, local residents to office workers.

Best spots to go for a drink in Mount Pleasant

Best spots to go for a drink in Mount Pleasant

To find a great beer – but not the overly active bar scene that comes along with it – head to Our Town Café, a chill spot where where Americanos mingle with craft beers and wine in the evenings (both for less than $6.00 a glass). Or you can try a boozy Baileys-infused Americano. Comfy chairs and eclectic art add to the charm of drinking in this hybrid day-to-night café.

For discussions stretching long into the night, wines by the carafe or bottle are available.

Best Vancouver cafés for business meetings

Our Town Café is part of the fabric of the vibrant, evolving district of Mount Pleasant. Open early (7:00 am) and closing late (10:00 pm), the cozy space is divided into numerous alcoves and areas in which to have a meeting – and always feels relatively private. The comfy armchairs make any meeting a congenial one. It’s an ideal place to while away the hours, especially with a creative conversation.
