JJ Bean is known for their strong coffee + espresso's. Great for coffee lovers. This location has sort of a cabin theme and is located across from the library.

I was craving for a a cold brew coffee on a hot summer day. And being a big fan of cold brew from Seattle's stumptown and SF's blue bottle, I couldn't wait to try it at JJ bean. Unfortunately I found this one to be a big disappointment. I really like this location, so I hope it will be improved!

I went to the JJ Bean near Canada Place and never wanted to leave. My love is coffee culture and JJ Bean has perfected the art. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. Great food and salads and most comfortable chairs I have found in my search for the perfect coffee house.

Good coffee. Friendly servers. Neat building. Nice out-door seating. Good alternative to the run-of-the-mill Starbuck.

JJ Bean , if you are in the area of the CBC Radio Canada building you should try this coffee stand. Great coffee, cappuccino , expresso and cold drinks. Staff is knowledgable of the area and friendly.

My first visit to JJ Bean and I enjoyed my hot chocolate. Not every coffee place has good hot chocolate and I would definitely stop in again on another visit to Vancouver. We had been hoping for a sit-down location, so maybe one will be there in the future.

JJ Bean is a Vancouver-based micro roaster with several cafés in the Vancouver area. We roast our coffee in small batches every day because we believe that coffee tastes best when it's really fresh.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
