スタバ以外にも私だけの行きつけを見つけよう!オシャレカフェ3選 in Main Street

 

‘Café’ is kind of a magic word which sounds super fashionable for Japanese, isn’t it? I guess many of you tend to go to Starbucks even though you know there are lots of amazing cafes in Vancouver. Today I will introduce to you 3 café recommendations, of which you will feel like taking many photos along Main Street, which also has lots of interesting shops. So please check and try them once;)

「カフェ」。

言ったり聞いたりするだけでオシャレになった気がする魔法のワード。(ですよね?)前回はdowntown編をご紹介しましたが、今回はカフェやレストラン、雑貨屋などオシャレなお店がたくさん並ぶMain Streetから3つご紹介します!

 

1.Liberty Bakery https://www.liberty-bakery.com/

Liberty Bakery is at Main Street and 21st Avenue. It has lots of cute points such as the appearance and decorations. You can definitely take a beautiful picture if you have a seat in the small patio on a sunny day. Of course you can also enjoy a comfortable and fresh atmosphere with daylight coming in through big windows even inside. It has various kinds of baked goods like cookies, pastries and cakes, which are affordable. (You can find cookies shaped like TOTORO!) I recommend you not only to have a relaxing time in the cafe but also to go to Queen Elizabeth Park with their baked goods and a coffee.

Main  Street と21st AvenueにあるLiberty Bakery。その外観や店内のレイアウトなど、オシャレポイントが溢れています。外には少しだけテラス席があってまさにインスタ映え必至、もちろん店内でも大きな窓から自然光がたくさん入って明るく清潔な雰囲気です。Bakeryということもあってクッキーやケーキ等焼き菓子が豊富で、しかも比較的お手頃な価格で楽しめます。(トトロクッキーがあります!)店内でのんびりするのに加え、天気の良い日はTO GO(お持ち帰り)にしてQueen Elizabeth Parkの芝生でのんびりするのもおすすめです;)

 

2.Jene Coffee Bar http://genecoffeebar.com/

A cafe having a triangle space in front of Mt Pleasant Community Centre is Jene Coffee. Do you remember? I have already introduced it as one of the locations of the Mural Arts in the article on February 19th. ( ) It does not have a huge space, but you will not feel that it is too small because of it’sbig windows on both sides and you can enjoy an open and stylish atmosphere. So it is very popular among the locals. How about spending time slowly while reading a book borrowed at the Vancouver Public Library Mt Pleasant Branch which is in the community centre in front of the cafe?

Mt Pleasant Community Centreの向かい側にある、三角のカフェがJene Coffee Barです。2/19の記事掲載のバンクーバー市内のアート紹介で取り上げたMural Artが施されているのも特徴的です。三角なのでそこまで広いスペースではないのですが、両壁面がガラスなので明るくて開放的でおしゃれな空間になっていて、地元の人達の憩いの場になっています。向かいにあるMt Pleasant Community Centreの中には図書館のブランチが入っているので、そこで本を借りてきて、Jene Coffeeでゆっくり読書なんでいかがでしょうか?

 

3.Purebread https://www.purebread.ca/

I know this has the other locations, but let me introduce this particular location. Purebread is at Ontario Street and E 5th Avenue, so you need to walk 2 blocks from Main Street. You may not find any Japanese around there because the area is very quiet and many locals gathering there. Once you enter the bakery, your nostrils will be occupied by sweet delicious fragrances and your eyes will be attracted by various kinds of baked goods. In my case, I needed about 20 minutes to choose one lol. Purebread is a perfect place if you would like to enjoy chatting with your friends while sharing some delicious cakes!

GastownやKitsilanoにもありますが、あえてご紹介しようと思います。こちらのロケーションはOntario StreetとE 5th avenueというMain Streetから2ブロック歩いた比較的目立たない場所にあります。なので地元の人が多く、日本人はあまり見かけません。店内に入ると焼き菓子の甘い匂いがほんわり広がっていて、様々な種類のおいしそうなかわいい焼き菓子が並んでいます。(ちなみに私はケーキ一つ選ぶのに20分くらい悩みました笑)友達とおしゃべりを楽しみながら、大きくておいしいバターたっぷりのThe 北米っぽいケーキを食べたい!という方におすすめのお店です。

 

Did you have any interest in my recommendations? They are not so expensive, so you can feel free to go and enjoy them!

ということで今日は上記3つのカフェをご紹介しました!どれも特別高級なカフェという訳でもないので、安心して行ってみてくださいね^^
