Art with a side of coffee—what could be better? Vancouver’s Cafe Portrait is colliding the arts scene with the coffee scene and we’re all about it.

Much like its name suggests, the entire cafe is filled with portraits so you have lots of eye candy while you sip your morning cup of joe.

Besides a selection of coffee and delicious pastries—they also have some more savoury options for breakfast and lunch. Try their avocado toast, ham croissant sandwich or Shakshuka topped off with avocado and a side of toast.

They serve brunch everyday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Along with Aggro Roasters coffee and traditional Turkish coffee brewed over hot sand, a tradition going back 100’s of years.

The cafe is located in the spot that was once filled by Chi Men, on Denman Street.
