New West Coffee Tour

New Westminster has a gem of different coffee shops, each serving up their own perfectly crafted drinks, along with some delectable pastries and food. Their picturesque spaces are located in the best area to wander around downtown and along the river.

So, if you're ready to explore and get caffeinated, here are the best and beloved spots in New West to check out.

Old Crow Coffee House

Old Crow Coffee House is a New West favourite. They are well known for their rich coffees, decadent pastries, and amazing toasts and sandwiches.

They regularly collaborate with local companies to bring a variety of different options to their storefront. The most recent one was with Flourgirl Baking, who specializes in some of the best vegan cinnamon buns in Vancouver.

Hive Cafe

Hive Cafe is the perfect place to stop if you want something sweet to pair with your coffee, while enjoying the minimalistic design and calming space. Soak up the last bit of summer sun with a cup of coffee and either a croissant, a cookie, or a chocolate-dipped waffle - or maybe all three!

The Hideout Cafe

The Hideout Cafe is one of the best spots in town, if you are looking for an organic-based, fair trade cafe. They use only fresh and simple ingredients to create an appetizing menu you can feel good about.

We recommend you try one of their daily soups!

Craft Cafe

Craft Cafe is a beautiful and aesthetic cafe in New Westminster. Sit inside and enjoy the ambience, or relax in their outdoor seating area and take in the breathtaking waterfront views.

The Craft Cafe has all of your favourite coffee drinks. However, if you can't decide what you want to drink, then go for a surprise and order a barista's choice! They also have a great selection of sandwiches and pastries.
