Recommended by our AirBnB hostess and got 2 really good cups of coffee. Decor has a definite hipster vibe as are many of the patrons...similar to neighborhood cafes in Portland, OR. Brews are done with the pour over method, where you can select what kind...More

We were pleasantly surprised to randomly find this place for breakfast on the way to queen Elizabeth park. The coffee was fantastic, the poached egg and salmon was delicious and we had some of the nicest people to serve us in all of Vancouver. Very...More

I loved the coffee here. It's a bit on the pretentious side, but the coffee is undeniably good. In a city filled with good, independent coffee places, Matchstick stands out. it's a good place to hand out, but not a place for a meal.

Matchstick makes great cappuccinos, it smells very good, I think it's among the best in town. I took many pictures, like the designs. I will come back to take a cup of cappuccinos for sure.

Matchstick takes coffee seriously. Handcrafted cappuccinos are among the best to be had in town. This is where their signature coffee is roasted, and barristas here are helpfully knowledgeable about take-home beans.
