JJ Bean information
Many Vancouver coffee bars close their doors too early for those who want to hang out at night but don't want to drink booze. This JJ Bean, one of the oldest outlets of a popular citywide minichain, subverts that by opening into the wee hours (of 10pm). There's a cozy, almost neighborhood-pub, feel to this friendly joint and, befitting its Drive location, there's a chatty patio for summertime sipping.
Roasting their own quality beans, consider picking up an apposite souvenir for coffee-loving friends back home: a bag of rich, earthy Eastside Blend. No wi-fi.
