Vancouver coffee review – Re-Entry

Re-Entry sign

– review by Sonia Stastny

Place: Re-Entry Espresso

Location: 4363 Main Street and 28th Avenue

Ambiance: Half-hearted attempt at futuristic (non)-décor: abundance of metal results in cold, sterile lines. Abrasive rock music (The Decemberists, Cat Power) not conducive to conversation or work (though wireless internet is available). All right,  so I was rather underwhelmed by this otherwise highly recommended coffee shop. I do give thumbs-up for the funky art on the walls.

Coffee: Roasted by the famous Moja coffee roasters located in North Vancouver. My cappuccino was less than impressive however: no latte art, wrong milk-foam ratio, not enough character to the espresso itself…  Maybe the barista was having a bad day? My disappointment was compounded by the fact that there were no pastries left for the day (it was only 2:30 p.m.!), and no sandwiches either.

Price: Mid-level. Cappuccino is $3.25.

Bottom Line: Nothing to write home about. Perhaps a great neighbourhood café but I would not travel across town to visit.

Wireless: Yes.
