Kaffina Coffee is a quality espresso and pour-over bar tucked away in South Surrey. It combines high-quality coffee and food that one would find in the city, with the customer service you would find in a small town.
Try their coffee flights and reward your palette with beans ranging in taste profile, origin, roast, and preparation. Have fun comparing a naturally fruit-forward espresso to one that’s caramelized and nutty.
Their classic Salmon Lox Toast is served on marble rye with avocado, cream cheese, smoked salmon, sprouts, honey, and lemon, along with a microgreen salad on the side. All ingredients are purchased locally so it’s a win-win for everyone.
