Aaron Kafka opened his first Kafka’s Coffee on Main Street in 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. His immense love for coffee led him to create a place for others to enjoy high-quality, brewed coffee in a supportive, community space. Kafka’s single origin beans are roasted weekly by new world micro roaster Herkimer Coffee Roasters in Seattle, Washington. Together, they work tirelessly to source the highest quality coffees while adhering to ethical sourcing. Each cup is brewed individually and made with the utmost care. A supporter of the local arts, Kafka’s often houses gallery pop-ups, curated by Michael Schwartz.
Kafka’s Coffee currently has three locations – its original Mount Pleasant cafe on Main Street, False Creek Flats on Great Northern Way, and Gastown. Customers can enjoy a menu designed by executive chef Nitzan Cohen as part of the Lil Bird Sandwich Co. food program, which started out as a window sandwich bar on Main Street.
