The GOODS from Railtown Cafe

Vancouver, BC | Railtown Cafe has opened the doors of its newest location, debuting a 1,185-square-foot licensed cafe at 1691 Main Street in Vancouver’s Olympic Village neighbourhood.

Open throughout the week from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends, the newest addition to the Railtown family offers the same fresh menu of made-to-order gourmet sandwiches, soups and an unparalleled build-your-own salad bar. Guests can also expect to find scratch-baked pastries and desserts, artisanal ice cream, locally roasted coffee, cold-pressed juices and a selection of local craft beer, wine and spirits.

Design-wise, the interior at the latest Railtown Cafe location evokes the same rustic-yet-industrial aesthetic — thanks to an abundance of reclaimed wood, concrete, white tile and Italian marble walls — as the original location on Railway Street and the Howe Street cafe. The design was developed by Coralyn Buss of Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture, with signage and graphics again provided by artist Shugo Nakamura of local firm In the Rye Creative. Among the new features taking centre stage at the Main Street location are bespoke clusters of industrial style lamps and a large functional garage door that lends itself to an indoor/outdoor dining experience during spring and summer.

Chefs Dan Olson and Tyler Day first opened Railtown Cafe in 2012 as an extension of their successful catering business, Railtown Catering. The neighbourhood cafe quickly became a go-to destination for Vancouver residents and tourists alike thanks to its signature brand of healthy, made-from-scratch comfort food prepared with local, organic and seasonal ingredients and served in heaping portions by Railtown’s talented team of classically trained chefs.

The Main Street cafe is the third location in Railtown’s ever-growing family of counter-service restaurants. A Downtown Vancouver outpost launched at 968 Howe Street in December 2016, and the team will open its fourth location in an 1,800-square-foot space at 429 Granville Street this summer.
