Food in Vancouver- Great Dane Coffee

great daneToday’s recommendation is less of a restaurant and more of a coffee shop.

Located on UBC Campus, Great Dane Coffee is a delicious place to grab a sandwich and a caffeine boost!

Great Dane is a unique coffee shop, surrounded by windows it’s a beautiful place to sit and enjoy. Though there’s limited space for studying in the winter, in the summer the outdoor seating area is wonderful.

Known mostly for their delicious coffee and sandwiches Great Dane also excels at other hot and cold drinks. The staff are also very friendly and put a great deal of effort into making delicious drinks.
