After months…years…of speculation, it’s finally happening: Starbucks will be serving wine and beer, along with a special menu of eats.
The catch is, it’s just at one Starbucks: The menu debuts June 1, 2017 at their newly-opened Reserve Coffee Bar location in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant.
The Main Street cafe recently revealed their spectacular transformation from a standard Starbucks to the elegant and specialized Reserve Coffee Bar, where patrons can not only fine their favourite coffee and tea drinks and snacks, but also a bar dedicated to serving up carefully selected roasts brewed with special methods, like siphon and pour-over.
Now Starbucks Canada will be offering an expanded menu at this location, including wine and beer and food, available during limited hours of operation.
Starting June 1, the Starbucks Reserve Coffee Bar will offer a menu of warm savoury foods and wine, beer, and cider. This menu will be available Monday to Friday from 2 pm to close, and noon to close on weekends.
Having debuted the evenings menu at select Toronto Starbucks locations in 2016, followed by their Ottawa Reserve Coffee Bar, the Vancouver Reserve Coffee Bar will be the first Starbucks location outside of Ontario to serve beer, wine, cider, and the evening food menu.
Here is the new evenings menu in full:
- Artichoke and Goat Cheese Flatbread
