Let’s be honest here, the only way to soften the blow of a breakup is by enjoying a delicious pastry to console a broken heart. That’s where Purebread has you covered. It’s got baked goods as far as the eye can see.

Revolver is known for amazing coffee and quick service, but did you also know they offer limited seating? This works well for you because you can get two coffees to-go and if there are no seats available (which is likely) you’ll be forced to get through the breakup quickly. You’ll be leaving within five minutes flat.

Starbucks – Mainland Street (Yaletown)

The reason I suggest this Starbucks specifically is because it has two exits, one of which is near the washrooms. You grab a couple coffees and just start “the talk.” If it gets too uncomfortable, all you have to do is say you need to go to the restroom and just walk out of the second exit. It’s foolproof… trust me.

Iktsuarpok Coffee Stand

What is the most awkward part about breaking up in a coffee shop? The fact that you have to sit down and talk about why you think you can do better. Cut that part out by stopping at Iktsuarpok. No seats means you pick up your coffee at the window, talk quickly, and if you need a quick and easy getaway, just make a run for it down the street. No seating means no hurt feelings right?

Address: 30-425 Carrall Street, Vancouver

Aubade is one of, if not the most unique coffee shops in Vancouver. Yes, they have limited seating, but that’s not the focus here – the focus is Eldric, the shop’s owner. This man oozes coffee knowledge, so while you’re soon-to-be-ex-lover is swooning over every word Eldric tells them about the coffee they’re about to enjoy, you can leave them a quick note saying it’s over. To be honest, they probably won’t even care at that point.

Quantum Coffee

This one requires some planning so stay with me. Register for a Brainstation course because it’s connected to Quantum Coffee. Once you know the exact time of the class, schedule to meet up for the break up at Quantum 10 minutes before your class starts. That gives you basically eight minutes to order your coffees, break up, and head to class. My suggestion, stay in the class for its entirety because they might be waiting for you to come back out and who knows, maybe you’ll learn something.
