Discovery

Posted by Cory Barkwell on

The original café and roastery are located on Discovery Street just off Douglas Street, opposite Paul’s Motor Inn. Early in the morning, when the roaster is at full throttle, you can follow your nose right to the door. This café has two spaces. The first is the lively, eclectic main café where the coffee is flowing and guests can sit and enjoy their beverage while listening to an array of music on vinyl. The second space is the quiet lounge and training facility, located directly next door. Here customers can enjoy their coffee and baked goods, plug in their laptop...

Oak Bay

Posted by Cory Barkwell on

Our second location in Oak Bay came to be in 2009 and proudly brews in a community that loves their neighbourhood café. With an eclectic feel right on Oak Bay Avenue, this location has become synonymous with connection to the local art community, as it showcases many up-and-coming and established local visual artists. A homey, vintage style and warm, welcoming atmosphere make this location the darling of the Discovery family and a mainstay in the Oak Bay area.

Blanshard

Posted by Cory Barkwell on

When given the opportunity to build our dream café, we couldn’t say no. Blanshard street is our forth location 2.0. Housing one of the few Modbars in the country, we built the space around the idea that less is more. Beautiful fire treated tables and a U-shaped bar, floor to ceiling windows and backlit skylights, and a partially covered patio to seat 40; we took all the aspects we loved about our previous Blanshard Street location and expanded on them. We of course couldn’t forget our signature trademarks and although the sound system is built in, it still only plays vinyl.

James Bay

Posted by Cory Barkwell on

If art deco is your jam then our location in James Bay is where you want to be. Acting as our only licensed café serving beer and cider, this is also where you’ll find our bakery and is always the first location to start serving our fresh-made baked goods from Yonni’s Doughnuts before they’re delivered to the other locations. Open and inviting, the James Bay café is a welcoming space for families to have a snack and coffee before heading to the park located right across the street and is the place to take in live music in the evenings...

Roastery

Posted by Cory Barkwell on

In the beginning, the original Discovery Street café and the roastery shared a cozy little nook, with our head roaster working hard on a Diedrich IR-7 to craft the coffee to run our first and only location. It only took one year to outgrow that little space and the roastery moved to the site we use today, beneath our original Discovery Street shop. Upgrading to an IR-12 and expanding the roasting team, the Discovery Roastery now generates enough coffee to supply our own locations, as well as multiple local and national wholesale accounts and our online shop! With this growth,...
