(wavescoffee.ca) – Broadway, Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada
How I heard of this place: Our friend Roya took us up the block to Waves for a Canadian franchise beverage and conversation.
Type of cuisine: Coffee shop fare with a plethora of tea and tisane options, espresso beverages and pastries.
Ambiance: A typical Pacific Northwest set-up with dark wooden furnishings, cozy leather sofas and free wifi. The space is open and large with floor-to-ceiling windows making up the entire front wall of the establishment. A calm air in the space makes for a perfect study spot or reading nook while you enjoy a cuppa joe in a cozy and dim-lit space.
What I ordered: Surprised to see rooibos espresso on the menu, the three of us reminiscing tonight had to sample two of the various flavors: rooibos latte ($3.29 each) and a rooibos symphony ($4.19), all in the 10-ounce (small) size. The specialty is that the rooibos is pulled as if it were shots of espresso through the espresso machine and the milk steamed before being added to the shots. The symphony also included white chocolate, mocha-style. During our conversation, the youngest (two-year old) in the group was craving a sweet treat and selected the giant Rice Krispee square.
What I loved: Having only sampled the rooibos symphony, I have to say that it was nice. I would have liked more tea and less milk, but the sweetness was perfect and the flavor of the pulled rooibos shots intense.
Why I loved it: The space is cozy, conveniently located on a busy street and had a very comfortable and easy feel about it.
Cost: Average to high ($3-$5 per 10-ounce beverage)
