Easy as ABC

Everyone likes to help. But not everyone has the time. Fortunately, there are ways to help raise money for a cause without breaking the bank or etching out time. This year we invite you to join us in helping two great organizations:

Jeans Day in support of BC Children’s Hospital

Join us on Thursday, April 28th as we participate in Jeans Day. Purchase a $5.00 pin + dress yourself up in denim for the day….jeans, shirts, skirts, jackets, bags – the sky is the limit! All you have to do is buy a pin, wear the pin + show off your pin with your favorite denim accessory! Money raised from Jeans Day directly benefits BC Children’s Hospital. Let’s  #jeanup for a great cause!

To purchase a pin, visit any of these retailers.

Daffodil Month

The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer. Buy a Daffodil Pin and wear it during the month of April to show your support for Canadians living with cancer. Money raised will go to programs that help patients + their families who are directly impacted by cancer.

Visit us at any Take Five Café location to find Daffodil Pins available by donation. Pick one up today + show those friends, family + loved ones who may have been affected by cancer in some way, that they are not alone.

As they say, every little bit helps. Do your part today. It’s as easy as ABC!

Patio Seating: A Perfect Place to
Take Five!

One of the nice things about the Spring and Summer is that we get to be outdoors a little more! There is nothing better than enjoying a coffee break breathing the outdoor air, listening to the birds and perhaps, soaking up a bit of Vitamin D. Being trapped indoors isn’t always fun….although necessary, it is easy to get caught up in the hustle bustle of work and all of the deadlines  that need to be met. But what if there was another way?

Researchers have proven that even a 15 minute break….away from your desk, in another atmosphere will not only revitalize your senses, but make you accomplish more as well. Just like a vacation – 1 week away can sometimes feel as though you have had a 2 week break. Well, in the coffee break world, 15 minutes outdoors can feel like an hour!

Take Five Café is thinking of you. In fact, more than half our stores have patio seating ….just in time for the sun! Visit us at our new location in the BlueShore Building. We also have outdoor seating at our West Hastings, Brewery District, Granville, Surrey City Hall + Nicola locations. ..and with more sunny days ahead, we anticipate even more afternoon patio coffee breaks.
See you at Take Five – on the patio of course! For the best 15 minute break you’ll ever have.

Multiplying, Moving + More

There have been some exciting changes in our Take Five Café world. Last month we introduced you to our newest location at Surrey City Hall. Next month, you’ll be introduced to a whole new location on the North Shore…and today? Today we are letting you know our location in Gastown is closing its doors and moving to a new downtown neighborhood! We are excited about the new space. But like all big moves, we still have a few t’s to cross and i’s to dot so it will be a couple months until we’re ready to open our new doors. We’re thrilled that this new location will be in the heart of downtown Vancouver and we can’t wait to share the exciting news with you. Stay tuned for more in the next few weeks!

You can still find all your Take Five Café favourites throughout the lower mainland in downtown Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster or Richmond.  And if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Your flavour-filled favourites
are on the move

This September, there are a few changes in our Take Five Café world. We’re on the hunt for a new location in the Kitsilano/West 4th area. Our lease has expired at our existing location and we’re in the midst of looking for a new home in the neighbourhood. Until we find the perfect fit, you can still find all your Take Five Café favourites in Downtown Vancouver or online. We’ve also moved our catering base of operations to our central kitchen location in East Vancouver, on Venables. You can order all your catering online or give us a call at 604.697.9050

And if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Sapperton Day Street Festival,
New Westminster

As a local Vancouver coffee shop, we take pride in sourcing as many local ingredients and suppliers as possible (take local Abbotsford farm Birchwood Dairy for example). Not only do we like to buy local when we can, we also like to support local causes and events.

This past Sunday June 10th Take Five Café was proud to be a part of the 10th Annual Sapperton Day Street Festival. Combining (more…)
