Comparable in price and quality Starbucks. Had a Chai latte, hubby had a hot chocolate, daughter a coffee, we split a couple of blueberry muffins which where very good.

After enjoying a satisfying lunch at Pepper Lunch I wandered next door to Waves for a cup of Joe. As usual the coffee house was full of students with their lap tops and the meeting room was also occupied. I did manage to find a seat at the counter by the window. Off street parking is available.

This coffee shop is clearly a hang out for students in need of wifi. It's got a youthful and bright vibe on top of great cappuccino. Being close to the SkyTrain station it's very convenient to grab a great cup on the way back to the hotel.

The place is at the corner of No 3 Road and Westminster Hwy. Though there is a parking lot but the lot is usually full. There aren't a lot of seats inside either. The coffee was good but in terms of comfortableness we prefer the one at Steveston. This is more of a take out place.

Just ok. Nice place to sit, but chairs are cracked vinyl in bad shape. The coffee is fine, the baked goods were very good.

We stopped in for a coffee here for a second time. The place is clean and spacious. The coffee is good, but the choice of baked goods is somewhat limited. The location is nice, amidst the pier and plentry of little stores.

Convenient location near restaurants, shopping malls and to the airport. Plenty of free parking spaces. Price of coffee or drinks are reasonable. Quiet and wifi is available.

I went to the store for a quick lunch, and ordered a Mediterranean Sandwich. The server sold me the deal with coffee for about $9. I felt it was alright as I was hungry, and tried the combo. They grilled it and served me the sandwich on a plate. I tried it and tasted it was dry inside, like stale... More

We went to Waves in Steveston last week. I find their coffee too expensive and just average. Blenz across the street recently renovated and I think their coffee is fresher as well as prepared with a bit more attention to detail.
