One of Yaletown’s most unique coffee shops has quietly shuttered after a decade of operation.

The Buzz Cafe & Espresso Bar, located at 901 Homer Street, closed its doors at the end of April after holding a moving sale, and so did the art gallery that housed it.

Known for its adorable custom hand-drawn cups and latte art, Buzz was known for another kind of art as well. The Homer Street space was the home of Harrison Galleries, Vancouver’s oldest retail art gallery.

Buzz Cafe owners posted a goodbye statement on Facebook on April 30.

Well, after 9 wonderful years in Yaletown we are closing our doors. Thank you all for being the best customers anyone could ask for. You have enriched our lives with your humor and kindness. Keep paying that forward.

If you are looking for your morning coffee, check out the Social Corner coffee shop across the street on Homer. They have been stellar neighbors!

Harrison Galleries posted a similar statement on Facebook the same day. They had been in business for 60 years altogether and 12 of those were in Yaletown.

Well, after 12 years in Yaletown, almost 60 years in business we are closing our doors. We will still maintain an online presence for now, and any updates will be posted here. Until we meet again.

We’ll keep you posted when these businesses share their next steps.
