Coffee is important to Canadians. Canada is among the top 3 coffee consuming countries in the world with an average of 152 litres per person. Maybe it’s because our winters are long and cold, or maybe it’s because we need something to wake us up before early morning hockey practice. University campuses across Canada have reported decreasing alcohol sales, and increasing coffee sales. You get the picture, we’re keen for the bean. Luckily for us, South Surrey is home to great coffee and great coffee shops.
100-2950 King George Blvd
This coffee shop has the perfect cosy atmosphere. It is quiet and has the perfect vibe for some daytime studying. They have a wide array of coffee and tea-related merchandise available for purchase. Kaffina’s premium pour-over coffee and espresso is their claim to fame; however, the tea-press is the perfect drink to have to compliment the quaint feeling shop and is no slouch either.
Spent Grounds Coffee Roasters
#108, 19140 28 Avenue
A local favourite throughout the community, Spent Grounds is the perfect place for all your vegan and gluten-free needs. The cafe boasts a wide collection of goods, roasts their own coffee on-site, and prides themselves on making a mean cup of hand-poured coffee. They support local and small businesses in the Metro Vancouver area as well.
Islands Cafe – Grandview
#40, 16041 24 Avenue
The ever-popular local White Rock cafe has opened up a second location right in the heart of South Surrey! The cafe continues to feature its popular Hawaiian aesthetic with its open and bright secondary location. Their North Shore Acai Bowls are always a hit and their Roasted Hawaiian Coffee will be sure to keep you coming back for a bit of that island flavour fix.
Dudes Coffee House
Crescent Beach – 12823 Crescent Road (home of the famous brunch)
Ocean Park – 1558 128th Street
With 2 locations in South Surrey, awesome coffee is never far away. Dudes Coffee House serves organic and Smithsonian-Certified Bird-Friendly (really!) beans sourced ethically from a plantation in Thailand, and the resulting brew is a coffee lovers dream come true. The food is delicious as well, but the doughnuts and weekend brunch is not to be missed. Dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian and organic options available.
15331 16 Avenue
Tucked away inside the lobby of a health centre in South Surrey, Everbean Cafe is an oasis of happiness and coffee joy! Stop by and order from their seasonal menu, which always includes house-made syrups and unique coffee combinations. In the fall be sure to try their “real” pumpkin spice latte blended with house-made vegan pumpkin sauce made from real pumpkin puree!
12889 16 Avenue
L’Aromas is the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee and chat with friends. The spacious cafe has large windows that enhance its already warm atmosphere. They have many classic coffee shop staples to try; however, their chicken pesto paninis are a must-try for any hungry guest!
Modern General Store
148-3388 Rosemary Heights Crescent
Nestled in the residential neighbourhood of Rosemary Heights, the Modern General Store is a community hub and a stylish one at that! Stop in for lunch, or indulge in a slice of homemade pie or a melt in your mouth brownie and a most excellent latte. And take the time to do a little browsing as they also offer a curated selection unique, locally crafted gift items.
West Village Cafe
160 – 5620 152nd Street
Expect to be greeted by a chic, modern atmosphere and welcoming staff at West Village. Enjoy an incredible selection of fresh, natural foods that can be made to fit any dietary restrictions. Treat yourself to an adorably colourful petite macaron or one of their other dangerously delicious baked goods. And they serve locally roasted Republica coffee, so you know that the coffee is going to be great!
