Matcha Madness - Give It A Try!

You never had a matcha latte?! Why?!

Come by the coffee bar and give it a try.  You will love these.

Matcha is s finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tree leaves.  It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest and the stems and veins are removed in processing. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, and is dissolved in a liquid, typically water or milk.  We can also miz with Almond Milk or Coconut Milk for those Vegan friends out there.  Come by the bar - 1670 Commercial Drive and give this a try.

Why Opened The Drive Coffee Bar - 1670 Commercial Drive

The Drive Coffee Bar is a result of us wanting to give back to the community of Commercial Drive. We wanted to have a place where we could obviously sell our coffee, but more importantly, we wanted a place where our neighbors and neighborhood could congregate and discuss the goings on in East Vancouver and beyond. We wanted to provide a safe and fun place for our neighborhood employees to hang out and have their friends hang out. We want to be a central part of The Drive’s community.

Our walls are adorned with the paintings and/or photography of local artists. We change every month. We offer our walls for free - we ask for nothing in return except the pleasure and honor of showcasing these fine young artists work for the patrons of our bar to see and enjoy.

We are open 7 days a week. We can and do offer our place to events at very reasonable rates - musical, poetry, comedy, talks, birthdays, engagement and retirement parties and just good old fashioned social gatherings. We have even had a celebration of life at the coffee bar. The bar is open to the community at large to enjoy and use.

Come by and check us out. We are at 1670 Commercial Drive. We offer Commercial Drive Coffee, La Grotta del Formaggio sandwiches and treats, Cartems Donuts and Half Baked Cookies sweets, East Side Beer Food delights as well as a great selection on Grappa, Amari, Craft Beers on tap, our exclusive wines and many other alcohol refreshments.

Come down and say hello. We would love to have you drop in. We are here to serve the community of East Vancouver and Commercial Drive.
