So Many Ways to Give – Think Pink 2017

For the EIGHTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is pleased to announce we’ll be supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign once again. Each year we offer our support through the sales of Pink Cupcakes with all proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund.  Over the past seven years, over 10,000 cupcakes have been baked + sold with a total donation of just under $12,100!! That’s a lot of cupcakes. And we can’t wait to make even more this year!

For the entire month of February, Pink Cupcakes will be on sale at all Take Five Café locations with all proceeds donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying programs across British Columbia. This special charity provides grants to thousands of children living with special needs. Think of the decadent chocolate cupcake with classic pink cream cheese frosting, as a guilt free treat!

And will inspire those around us to make a positive difference.   So if you need a sweet treat or your office is catering a lunch, add a plate of pink cupcakes – think pink!  Contact our Catering Department to arrange deliveries starting February 1st. 604.697.9050

Pink Cupcakes for Pink Shirt Day 2016

For the SEVENTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is pleased to announce we’ll be supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign once again.

This is an incredible campaign that was started by two Nova Scotia teens who distributed pink shirts at their school to take a stand against bullies who were picking on a young boy who wore a pink shirt. The concept has gained traction and has become synonymous to standing up against all forms of bullying.

This year, for the entire month of February, Pink Cupcakes will be on sale at all Take Five Café locations with all proceeds donated to the CKNW Orphan’s Fund in support of Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying programs across British Columbia. Enjoy a decadent chocolate cupcake with classic pink cream cheese frosting, made fresh daily at our East Vancouver central kitchen.

Spring has sprung, and so has our new location!

After months of hiding inside from the cold, it’s time to get outside and get into the spring of things! The birds are back, the buds are blooming, and the grass is growing. It’s a time of renewal + new beginnings.

And on that note, it seems perfectly fitting to announce our newest Café location to join the Take Five Café family! Located in North Vancouver at 107 East 13th Street in the brand new BlueShore Financial Headquarters, our new café is right in the heart of the City of North Vancouver. It’s a lively area full of restaurants, specialty stores + professional services all framed by the beautiful North Shore Mountains. It’s definitely an area worth exploring!  And we invite you to do just that….with a Take Five Coffee in hand, we hope! We’re thrilled to join this new community and can’t wait to share some delicious flavours with everyone in the neighbourhood. Come visit our new cafe this week to see for yourself.

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.

A Look Inside Our Newest Cafe:
Surrey City Hall

The idea of a traditional café usually brings to mind a small, cozy place with lounge seating + overstuffed chairs that dare you to try to leave. Newspapers line randomly placed tables, various packets of sugar lie artfully on display, pitchers of cream are conveniently labelled and an umbrella stand usually marks the entry. With that distinct coffee aroma lingering in the air, these memories, moments, scents, seem to mark the classic café experience.

Enter 2014 and our latest location – Take Five Café Surrey City Hall. With (more…)

We’re Growing!

We have some exciting news from our Take Five Café world. We’re pleased to announce that we have plans to open THREE new locations this year. New Take Five Café locations will be coming soon to Surrey, North Vancouver and Downtown Vancouver later this year.

With these new stores opening and our continued plans for expansion, we need some extra space to keep baking those excellent muffins and cooking that delicious pasta. Our Central Kitchen is expanding. We’re closing our Venables café to make more room for our kitchen and bakery. Our last day at our café on Venables will be Friday May 16th

We want to thank everyone in the Grandview-Woodland community for making our Venables café a lunch spot and we will sincerely miss all our regular customers. We’ll keep you up to date on our new locations soon and thank you for your continued support of our local café.
