Ignite Pizzeria taking over former high traffic Starbucks in Yaletown

Apr 29 2021, 5:32 pm

We’ve been waiting to see what would replace the Vancouver Starbucks that Ariana Grande made famous, and now a year-and-a-half after it shuttered, we finally know.

The high traffic 977 Mainland Street address will be Ignite Pizzeria’s newest branch, flagship location, and test kitchen.

Ignite Pizzeria is a local maker that offers handcrafted, stone-fired pizza out of its Gastown and Main Street locations.

The brand is known for its low-sodium dough pizzas in veggie, meat, and build-your-own varieties.

Ignite also sells pizza by the slice and sides like garlic cheese bread and salads alongside a selection of beverages.

This concept’s Mount Pleasant location is licensed and serves alcohol.
