Fall is a beautiful season.
It’s sweater weather at its finest: scarves build layers on the necks of bustling students who are just trying to make it through yet another tough semester.
If you’re looking for a cozy nook that pours up a warm cup of coffee at all hours of the night (to accommodate for your extreme procrastination or last-minute exam cramming), we’ve got your back.
Or should we say, mouth?
Here are the best late night coffee shops in Vancouver to get your caffeine fix, plus a whole lot more.
Breka Bakery | 818 Bute St. | 855 Davie St. | 6533 Fraser St.
A 24/7 love story. Breka is seriously good. And with never-sleep service at all three locations, you’ll wish you could pay them rent and set up a bed there, too. Breka serves up absolutely perfect scone – the White Chocolate Scone is our favourite – and their coffee is always steamed just the way you like it.
Calhoun’s Bakery | 3035 Broadway
Creativity never sleeps. So why should you? Calhoun’s offers 24-hour service to keep your mind awake for all of your little projects. They whip up a delicious breakfast, with a Mexican twist. Daily specials, precious desserts and even beer on tap! Calhoun’s is so much more than just a bakery. Try their version of a Chai Tea Latte – the spicy aroma will shock your tongue.
Duffin’s Donuts | 1391 East 41st Street
An iconic Vancouver restaurant that easily makes our list, not only for their delectable donuts. Duffin’s is open 24/7 too, which makes them a great alternative to your quick Tim Horton’s hit. Wifi: Check. Tasty food of all sorts: Double check! Come for the donuts and coffee, but stick around for their Fried Chicken. Sounds random, we know. Yet, it’s dubbed one of the best in town.
Siegel’s Bagels | 1883 Cornwall Avenue
If you find yourself wandering aimlessly around Kits at 3am looking for a coffee and something to munch, this is the joint for you. Siegel’s Bagels (try saying that ten times fast) has been baking up bagels for over 25 years and is a staple place to enjoy a late night snack. Their brick fire over may be the secret to their unbelievable flavour. Try the Rosemary Rocksalt Bagel with cream cheese.
Lucy’s Eastside Diner | 2708 Main Street
This isn’t the first time we’ve recommended Lucy’s. The diner has a vintage atmosphere and whips up a mean milkshake – booze infused, too. Open 24-hours per day to cater to all of your personalities, Lucy’s will soon be the “Central Perk” amongst you and your friends. Definitely order up the Pulled Pork Pancakes.
