Kitsilano—Platform 7 Cafe opened a second location on West Broadway and your first impression will certainly be how its decor perfectly fits in with an classic, old timey King's Cross style train station.
Brewing Portland's Stumptown Coffee, Platform 7 has more of a corner shop or neighbourhood coffee shop feel compared to Vancouver's more prevalent brand of hip, minimalist, and more contemporary designs.
As for the coffee, they're certainly the real deal and take their java seriously. On the warmer side, their cortado sufficed with a crisp but refreshing espresso flavour and just the right amount of milk added.
They also have an impressive selection of cold brews on tap including a nitro infused variety.
I was impressed by the delicious Stumptown milkshake (made with ice cream, milk, and two shots of espresso) for its chilling and refreshing taste. Their daily apple pie was also a delectable treat with the right hint of cinnamon flavour.
The new Platform 7 is quite the charmer with its magical Platform 9¾ meets Kitsilano neighbourhood feel wrapped in all the pleasantries of a modern cafe.
