Open Mic Nights & Music Nights at Our Lively Coffeehouse


If you’ve hung out at our flagship Granville Street cafe on a Thursday or Friday night anytime over the last several years, you’ve likely been treated to some amazing live entertainment. Thursday evenings are Open Mic nights, featuring anything from coffeehouse tunes to improv and maybe even a standup routine. Friday nights, we get some of Vancouver’s top musicians to play here before you have to pay top dollar to see them in concert just a few years from now (Carly Rae Jepsen used to play here — and we felt back then that her amazing talent was destined for greatness).

At the end of the week, the earnest and incredible John Pippus hosts the musical guests. Our host Thursday nights is the talented Marq DeSouza, an accomplished musician and entertainer in his own right. We took a few minutes to chat with Marq about where he’s coming from — and what he enjoys most about the shows. (more…)

Fall Features Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake and Seasonal Lattes

Serving up pumpkin spice awesomeness in October & November

This October and November, you can enjoy our Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Brown Sugar Cinnamon Latte and Chai Latte at Trees Organic cafes — with seasonally-inspired flavours that we’ve all loved since our childhoods.

Our Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is rich and creamy, with subtle tastes and textures of fresh from the country harvest. If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice cheesecake — well, here’s your chance to try a treat worthy of the Great Pumpkin (you know who you are, Charlie Brown fans). It’s served up with a little splash of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
