Hi Neighbours!

We're a settler-family-owned business, that's hyper focused on serving Kits Beach and the Kitsilano community at our cafe at 1945 Cornwall Ave.

We serve espresso, pour over coffee, cold brew coffee made from single-origin fair trade sustainably-harvested beans roasted by Habitat Coffee Co. and House of Funk. We also serve in-house blended wildcrafted and organic teas. Our daily selection of pastries, smoothies, and baked goods are made in house and supplied by local bakers using organic ingredients. We offer gluten free and vegan items. 

Besides making great coffee and conversation, community is most important to us. That's why we have a Purpose Driven Small Business Annual Giving Program for Kitsilano businesses - an opportunity to re-invest into our community and be involved in community events. If you like to connect with like-minded people in your community we hold event every month and there's something for everyone. From Pottery Clubs to Live Music to a Ritual Retail Section and Wellness Events. We look forward to meeting you.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Kits Beach Coffee Co. is committed to responsible business practices in all aspects of our activities. We offer every employee a competitive equitable earning employee package. We are also the first to offer an on-site Equitable Literacy Library for our community. Priority is given to highlighting and contributing to Kitsilano and the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Our health, community, and sustainability policy fortifies our company commitment to providing support, leadership, and contribution to our community of Kitsilano and specifically Kits Beach. Our green action plan, an equitable wage for employees, and a community giving program are our cornerstone commitments. We might only be a seasonal coffee cart, but everything is an opportunity to be an integral example of how to be a good corporate citizen and neighbour.


Why not read a good book, and reflect while you sip on your coffee?


Like you, we live in Kits and love it here! But there is so much more to Kits than just the beach, seawall, Kitsilano pool and Vanier Park. It's a rich tapestry of humanity. The Equitable Literacy Library is curated to connect our community with literary selections that aim to offer thought-provoking ideas. With an abundance of BIPOC and LGTBQIA2S authors; this library a visible representation that creates a safe space to read and learn.


Our wide range of books and interactive selections examine the intersections between colonial-settler history, climate justice, anti-racism, cultural awareness and gender that goes beyond the binary.


All books and interactive selections have been chosen with the guidance of our partners and local businesses we support, these include; iDreamLibrary and the Young Activist Reading Room, The David Suzuki Foundation, Battered Women's Support Services, The Building Allyship Community 

and Massy Books.

We have books that encourage self-inquiry, healing, nurturing our eco-systems, essays and poems and a sensory section for children and adults.


We look forward to seeing you.

Where We Give

Settler Impact Policy

We acknowledge living and working on unceded Coast Salish lands of the Sen’ákw, Skwxwú7mesh, Musqueam and the Tsleil-Waututh Peoples. We will be contributing annually to organizations that directly support indigenous women and youth in our local community. This year we are supporting (BWSS) Battered Women's Support Services Programs.

Environmental Impact Policy

Our beaches and oceans are integral to life and need us to reduce our impact and contribute to positive climate change. As such we will be contributing annually to the David Suzuki Foundation’s Ocean Conservation Programs.

We look forward to finding a way to work together.

Green Action Plan

Kits Beach Coffee Co. is committed to reducing our carbon footprint and to taking care of environment. That's why we are always looking for innovative ways to support green initiatives and our community. Introducing our used coffee grounds program. We are currently working with local Kitsilano community gardens and farms to ensure our used coffee grounds don't end up in landfills - they end up in gardens for an extra nutrient boost.

Composting coffee grounds helps to add nitrogen to your compost pile and it can be used as fertilizer for both indoor and outdoor plants. The benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertilizer is that it adds organic material to the soil, which improves drainage, water retention, and aeration in the soil. The used coffee grounds will also help microorganisms beneficial to plant growth thrive as well as attract earthworms. If you are a city farmer, gardener, or just love plants, ask about how to get involved. We bag it and drop it off, or you can pick up at the cafe.

Butterflyway Project

Want our neighbourhood to be butterfly-filled? 
Want to learn more about rewilding and
protecting our pollinators in our community?
Want to take more action in conservation and protecting our environment?

The goal of the Butterflyway Project is to establish small habitats in our own communities for local bees and butterflies by planting native wildflowers in home gardens, patio gardens, schools, and any businesses with outdoors plants.

We are looking for passionate people about pollination who can create small habitat gardens in close proximity to our cafe to join our Pollinator Project. We provide all the materials to get started; including seed starter packets and  on-going in person/online events to learn and connect with your pollinating community.  

This is a volunteer project in partnership with The David Suzuki Foundation.
