Located at the corner of Railway and Dunlevy in the historic Railtown District of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Railtown Cafe has been serving healthy and delicious food since the summer of 2012.

Launched by Vancouver chefs Dan Olson and Tyler Day — who own and operate the award-winning Railtown Catering out of the same facility — Railtown Cafe fosters a fun and friendly environment with a true sense of community for staff and customers alike.

Fresh is what Railtown Café does best, offering heaping portions of healthy comfort food prepared from scratch daily by a talented team of classically trained chefs. Whether it’s for grab-and-go breakfast, lunch or a mid-afternoon meeting, Railtown Cafe sources local and organic ingredients for their artisan bread loaves, soups, pastries and made-to-order gourmet sandwiches. Railtown Cafe also features a build-your-own salad bar unlike anywhere else in the city, along with house-made ice cream available by the jar and cone, locally roasted coffee, cold-pressed juices and a range of local craft beer, wine and spirits.


Vanfoodster – “Hidden in the heart of Railtown which is off the beaten track just East of Gastown. This is a go to spot for an amazing lunch.”

  1. I went to the Howe Street location this morning hoping to try a cup of the free coffee. I walked into the store and there was a short line, waited in line and got to the cashier at 9:02AM and was told they were no longer serving free coffee. Why put up a sign about free coffee if you’re not actually going to serve it? Don’t use it as a trick to get people to come into the shop and then feel guilty about not buying anything.

    Earlier this week I was walking by their store around 8AM and saw a girl writing free coffee on their sidewalk board. If free coffee runs 7-9AM, why is the sign being written up at 8.
