Cafe Delitzi is a great cozy space, conveniently located on Glen Drive – near the SkyTrain and Coquitlam Centre. Order from their vast espresso bar menu or grab a Green Gorilla smoothie to refuel as you work. They also serve all-day breakfast, which includes their delicious belgian waffles with decadent toppings to choose from.
Creekside Coffee Factory has an exciting new space (Westwood) with an impressive layout that makes for great conversation and coworking. Famous already for their delicious coffee freshly roasted on-site, this additional location is another great place to co-work with colleagues or study with group partners. It also has great lighting and large tables, and of course – great eats. Order your favourite coffee and pair it with their delicious turkey sandwich.

Have you had a coffee bun yet? For a sweet option, try the Nutella bun, and for a more savoury flavour, try the cream cheese bun. Grab one with a cappuccino and spend an hour planning your paper, sending emails, or reviewing your paper citations. You’ll find yourself wanting to try more things from the menu as you hear folks come in and out, ordering different drinks and treats!

Park in the back or hop off the bus and into this quaint little shop for some coffee and get some work done over delicious cheese toast and tasty macarons. This is a great space to cross-check your notes or to bring your agenda and plan. If you arrange your visit ahead of time, you can even pre-order a breakfast box to last you the week – full of scones, croissants, and even waffles. It’s also a great place to pause from work and take food pics – because their treats are just as gorgeous as they are delicious.
