New Evening Service at
Take Five Café Gastown

A long time ago (also known as 10 years ago before Take Five Café was started) our Executive Chef was busy creating amazing Italian dinners at high end Caffé dé Medici Ristorante Italiano. After a 30 year history and too many amazing dinners to count, the restaurant eventually closed its doors in 2008 and Take Five Café received the full attention of Executive Chef Aron Zipursky.

And while summer has whizzed by, iced coffees have been enjoyed and beach days lived to the fullest, our test kitchen has been cooking up some exciting new dishes, and they’re making their way to our Gastown Café for everyone to enjoy.

Coffee by day. Wine by Night. Now, enjoy some great sharing plates with your evening glass of wine. Grab a friend and come on down. With our introductory prices, we can guarantee an evening of great food paired with amazing wine that won’t break the bank.
