The GOODS from Caffè Artigiano
Vancouver, BC | Caffè Artigiano has opened the doors of their reimagined Park Royal café. Debuting a fresh new look, the modern West Vancouver location sets a new bar for design and excellence in the city’s thriving coffee scene.
The 1395-square-foot space reveals a brand new design direction for the acclaimed local coffee company. Featuring a stunning new interior with floor-to-ceiling windows, the space allows for plenty of natural light and an indoor-to-outdoor experience year-round. Bold accents of colour and a mix of upholstered banquettes and vintage-style brass-footed chairs blend contemporary design with a sense of nostalgic warmth throughout. An oversized communal library table lends an intimate feel, allowing patrons to plug in and work or play.
The sleek redesign was executed by talented local design firm BOX Interior Design Inc. Responsible for the design of local culinary hotspots such as Coast, Trattoria, and Glowbal Telus Gardens, BOX has crafted an effortless atmosphere of casual vintage chic in the updated room, using accents of mahogany, marble, and brass.
The décor and design isn’t the only thing to be updated at the Park Royal café; a new menu crafted by Dawn Doucette, Caffè Artigiano’s Product Development Chef features seasonal local and organic gourmet sandwiches and salads made daily from carefully sourced ingredients, artisan breads, nitrate-free meats and house made dressings and condiments.
Upon reopening, Caffè Artigiano’s Director of Coffee, Michael Ratcliffe, will continue to work closely with baristas at the Park Royal café to teach new and unique techniques.
“Embracing professional growth and giving back to the incredible coffee culture we have here in Western Canada is imperative to us,” says Caffè Artigiano’s Director of Coffee Michael Ratcliffe. “Every drink served is an expression of the skill and passion of the individual barista; that commitment to personalized quality is important in maintaining a strong sense of family and community within our doors.”
Caffè Artigiano Park Royal is located at J5 – 925 Main Street, West Vancouver. Hours are Monday to Friday from 6:00am to 7:00pm, weekends and holidays from 7:00am to 7:00pm. For more information, please visit Caffeartigiano.com or call 604-913-1400.

About Caffè Artigiano
Regarded as North America’s premier coffee-house chain, Caffè Artigiano launched in Vancouver in December 1999 with a vision of an Italian-style coffee house and bistro that offered superior coffee, excellent food and a lively-yet-comfortable atmosphere.
Today, the company famous for its stunning ‘latte art’—a unique rosetta, tulip or heart atop each cappuccino and latte served—offers a warm atmosphere rich with rustic-meets-contemporary Italian flare.
Of course, it all starts with the best beans. Caffè Artigiano sources and purchases only the finest coffee beans from select farms around the world, ensuring superior-quality coffee, espresso and lattes. From the handling, grinding and temperature control to roasting to perfection, in it’s state of the art roasting facility, Caffè Artigiano takes meticulous care of its beans so that all the flavours in the bean are maximized.
Join us for the coffee, the lattes and the espresso, and stay for the food and atmosphere. Caffè Artigiano offers an array Italian-inspired café fare made with only the highest-quality ingredients available. The menu includes made-to-order panini sandwiches, along with specialty baked goods such as fresh pastries, muffins and scones.
Stop by the Caffè Artigiano in your neighbourhood, there is a no better time stop in, sit back with a heart-topped cappuccino and a golden panini, and let yourself be transported to a bustling bistro in Italy (passport not required).
