Railtown Cafe, the popular counter-service cafe, is expanding. Big time.

The casual eatery will open the first of three new cafes in the fall of 2016 in the heart of Downtown Vancouver with a 1700-square foot space at 980 Howe Street, with seating for 60 (including 15 on the patio).

This location will be followed by a second, 1200-square foot space at 1691 Main Street in the winter of 2016/2017 with seating for 30 (including 8 on the patio).

The third Railtown Cafe location, which will take occupancy at 409 Granville Street and offer a 1800-square foot, 60-seat space (including 15 on the patio), is slated to open in early 2017.

The menu at all three new locations will mirror the one found at the cafe’s original location at 397 Railway Street. New and returning customers can expect to find Railtown Cafe’s trademark brand of fresh, made-from-scratch comfort food including gourmet sandwiches, artisan bread and pastries, locally roasted coffee, cold-pressed juices and lineup of local craft beer, wine and spirits.

“We’re extremely excited to not only grow the Railtown brand but to introduce ourselves to some new local neighbourhoods in the coming months,” says Dan Olson, chef and co-owner of Railtown Cafe. “We look forward to fostering the same fun, friendly environment and sense of community for staff and customers in our new locations that we’ve become known for at our original cafe where it all began.”
