Coffee and art complement each other in perfect balance, like peanut butter and bananas or grand pianos and cartoon henchmen. Enjoy a dynamic duo with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a 10-drink punch pass valid toward any drink $5 and under at Café for Contemporary Art in North Vancouver (up to a $43 value).
Café for Contemporary Art combines panoply hot and iced drinks with eye-enticing work from local and international artists. Customers choose up to 10 of the café's pours, perusing parades of daily beans for a classic drip coffee ($1.42–$2.15) or sending steam signals from mugs of hot matcha or chai tea lattes ($3.20–$3.85). On warmer days or after napping with halogen lamps, patrons can sip chilled beverages such as iced caramel macchiatos ($4.30) and iced dark chocolate ($3.20). Baristas may reinvent any drink on request with milk alternatives such as soy or almond, or add extra portions of vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut flavouring ($0.48).
To acquire its featured artwork, the cafe hosts frequent exhibition openings for local and international image-breeders, adorning walls with paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs. Curving white or cushioned chairs and alcove in-set wooden benches grant guests space to rest, and the sleek, minimal interior eases anxious eyes and anxious interior decorators with soft white and bare wood walls, wood cabinets, and hanging lamps.
