Bright and friendly market cafe. Excellent Sandwiches, up to 34 of us have the ham and cheese croissants every day. I like mine untoasted. Get a snack, get the best London Fog in town, sit and read the paper, do a bit of Italian grocery shopping on your way out. It's REALLY busy at noon so I wait until 12:30-1pm. Very clean, nice WC!

If you like strong coffee Gigi Blin could be the place for you, our drinks were delicious. The apple turnover was flaky and good but the selection of baked goods was limited.

I was hoping this place was going to be some type of secret gem coffee spot. But it wasn't. The coffee tasted like bad hotel coffee. It was thin and watery. I would have been better off to drink the coffee from the 7/11 a block down.

Pros: good location in Marpole, reasonable prices, great selection and delicious drinks.

Cons: less than pleasant baristas and front door that is always open. 70th is a very busy street and if the wind is right, the car exhaust wafts in along with all the street noise. Not exactly pleasurable when trying to relax.

off-the beaten path cafe/market at corner of 70th and Cartier. I would be in there often if I lived in the neighbourhood. What a great place for a business, catering to the low-rise apartment residents of Marpole. Comfy and inviting. Coffee was 8 out of 10 and I though I'm not a fan of Umbria coffee... Mark (owner) prepared it just the way I like. I had the almond/chocolate croissant - it was behemoth. Opened in June of 2015, I'm guessing this cafe/market is still under the radar as it is catering mostly to the neighbourhood which is fantastic! Marpoliians... if you haven't check this out, I encourage you to do so. You wan't be disappointed!
