All coffee beans served at Timbertrain are roasted by the cafe and most of the bakery goods are made in-house too(see below for more). They simply don’t trust others to roast the beans as well as they know they do. Coffee is clearly a passion for the team at Timbertrain Coffee Roasters.

They have a special “slow bar” where they put time and effort into doing everything properly so as to give you a perfect cup of coffee.


The counter is always full of tasty looking coffee, pastries and more. You’ll have a hard time saying no to at least one of the treats on offer while you’re sipping your coffee in this trendy Gastown stop.


Timbertrain Coffee Roasters embodies chic Gastown. They’ve gone with a subtle train theme where the menu looks a little like a departure board. There’s a huge coffee station for the baristas, plenty of seating and that rustic-chic design feature of exposed brick throughout. It’s a great place to relax in the afternoons over some fantastic coffee.
