What's new?

For the past few years VIVA has been working diligently behind the scenes to bring to life a long-time dream and we are so happy to present our new space. While we are still the same VIVA, our new space allows for contemporary coffee to meet our ongoing café traditions that we hold closely to our hearts. Be sure to come check it out!

About Us!

VIVA is a local café & bakery that has been proudly serving the Kitsilano community since 2002. We took the reins of this community café back in 2017 and since then we've prioritized creating a space and menu that compliments old flavours with new experiences.

Though we are best known for our great coffee and incredible pastries, the experience in visiting VIVA itself is where the true magic is. Located right by Kitsilano beach, we always look forward to the summer fun, being extra excited this year to show off our new space to the rest of the neighborhood.

We are lucky enough to have 2 incredible pastry chefs who make our pastries in house every morning. We source our ingredients locally whenever we can and particularly in the summer seasons, you can find us working with local farmers to have only the freshest of seasonal fruits.

Find our classic laminated pastries in store daily or enjoy more seasonal treats on the weekends. For any catering needs email us at

Our coffee...

The Espresso

We offer two different beans on our espresso bar. We proudly serve Detour's Punch Buggy as our go-to espresso bean and have recently switched up our feature espresso to Rooftop's UFO Mistèrio.

Detour – Punch Buggy – Brazil Mogiana + Guatemala Huehuetenango, Natural + Washed

Friendly and Familiar. This classic has a bit of something for everyone. Nutty and Fruity with notes of chocolate the Punch Buggy is robust and well rounded – Hard to go wrong with this one!

Rooftop – UFO Mistèrio – Brazil, Natural Anaerobic + Yeast Fermentation

This single origin natural process brings sweetness and complexity. Think juicy maraschino cherries and melons with a twist of candy. Another fabulous roast from our friends at Rooftop to challenge your taste buds.

The Batch Brew

Modus – Dom – Guatemala, Abel Oritz, Washed

This is our take on an everyday drip coffee. With its main notes being of a nutty-chocolatey base, DOM is great black and also holds its own with milk and sugar.
