Music + Coffee at Take Five Cafe
on Granville

Music is one of those wonderful things in life. A good day or bad, there’s nothing better than soothing sounds to calm your soul or the beat of rock + roll to get the party started.  Coffee has that same effect – whether sipping on a classic latte to unwind or enjoying a carefully crafted espresso as the perfect after lunch pairing.

So it only makes sense to pair both together. This Saturday afternoon (November 17) at our Granville café, you’ll be able to enjoy it all! Local artists, “The Barista” …(yes, you read that right!) will entertain you with their tunes – everything from the classics of the Beatles to the Indie Rock of Bon-Iver.  Guitar in hand, this inspirational trio are sure to entertain. Will they be the soothing sounds enjoyed best with a classic latte? Or the rocking tunes that make you set your sites on an espresso?  – only you can decide. But you need to show up first!

We hope to see you there!

Saturdays, Noon – 4pm

A Take Five Cafe Playlist

There are some things that just work as a pair. Peanut butter and jelly. Romeo and Juliet. Music and Coffee. We’re entering an uncharted domain for us at Take Five Café. What’s in the works? A custom Take Five Café playlist.

At Take Five Café, we’re taking our cues from the legendary Dave Brubeck, a jazz pianist who is well known for his ‘Take Five’ piece, often penned as a jazz classic. Though we won’t feature only Dave Brubeck, we’re using him as a starting point. We’re compiling our own playlist that you’ll be able to feast your ears upon as you sit back at your local Take Five Café and enjoy some quality coffee.

We’d love your input. If there’s a must have song that pairs with your double espresso, let us know! Tweet us @TakeFiveCafe or leave us a note on our Facebook Wall
