This Vancouver spot was just named in the ‘Top 50 Cafes on Earth’

Vancouver has great coffee, there’s no denying. And, if you don’t agree, you simply haven’t explored our city’s vast collection of spectacular cafes.

Author Chris Moss of England’s The Telegraph, however, decided to go bigger than just cities as he tackled coffees on a global scale when he published his list of the “50 greatest cafes on Earth,” which includes coffee shops on every continent.

With that said, it was rewarding to see that Vancouver’s famous Ovaltine Cafe made the list, one of only two Canadian cafes to make his global ranking (the other is Montreal’s Cafe Olimpico).

Nestled in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown (251 E Hastings Street), The Ovaltine Cafe has been open for business since 1942, making it one of the city’s oldest restaurants. In a city known for its fondness for good food and drink, The Ovaltine stands out, serving a mix of classic and contemporary diner food, priced right.

Moss notes, “From the Edwardian building to the projecting pink neon signage to the unreconstructed décor – not to mention that anti-cool name – you’ve got to love this 1942 diner-cum-coffee shop.”
