Bike-Themed Musette Cafe Set To Open New, Larger Location On Burrard

unnamed-(1)

Cycling-themed Musette Cafe co-founder Thomas Eleizegui has a new partner, Wentworth Hospitality (see also: Tableau, Loden Hotel, Homer St. Cafe), and together they’ve secured a new downtown location in the Modern Building at 1325 Burrard Street. That’s the corner of Burrard and Harwood, so it’s right on the up/down slope of the Burrard bike lane that connects to Burrard St. Bridge, the seawall, and Kitsilano. Thomas’ original partners (now separated) will be changing the name of Musette’s location in Chinatown soon.

The new Musette will see much of its 2,000 sqft dedicated to kitchen space with some 50 customer seats. I expect the design will once again focus on bikes and the culture surrounding them, which is to say the look will be entirely its own thing. The menu is being expanded, but the focus will remain on grab and go fare. The coffee, I trust, will remain dependably excellent (beans from 49th and Pallet). Hours will be 7am to 8pm. Bonus: liquor license FTW.

  1. Perfect location, just around the corner from their previous, super-cozy space. Lots of room to saddle up out front, too. Best of luck Musette!
