Enjoy These Last Summer Days

When the calendar is showing the end of August, all it takes is a rain drop or two, to remind us that September is fast approaching. Add the “back to school” commercials + a morning ride that has evolved into the morning rush + it becomes quite clear – Summer is nearly over!

Inevitably, the slow pace of summer can’t last forever + while we at Take Five Café can’t slow down time, we can make things easier for you. If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to “Take Five” + treat yourself!

Our coffee drinks are crafted from locally roasted gourmet coffee beans + compliment our long list of house baked items. All panini + wraps are created from locally sourced ingredients + our meats are oven roasted in house. Add a decadent “dessert in a cup” frappini or a smoothie blended with 5 servings of fruit or veggies to the mix, + we think we have something for everyone. Do you want gluten free? We have it. Old fashioned oatmeal? New age quinoa? We have that too!

If you need a treat, visit one of our locations. You may not be able to slow down time, but you are able to slow things down in your day!

With 10 locations to serve you, we hope you find us in your neighbourhood.

Perfect Picnic Planning

If you’ve ever planned a picnic you know that things can quickly get out of hand….A simple lunch can easily escalate. It’s the options that get in the way. You bring blankets AND chairs to provide a choice for seating. A simple deck of cards isn’t enough so your bring badminton + Frisbees so the family can pick + choose. Weather considerations get in the way, so sweaters, hats, sunscreens are added…..with a bottle of bug repellent, an umbrella and a tarp…just in case. And then there’s the food! Catering to every family member’s favourites – the different types of panini…one wants white bread and the other whole wheat. Your youngest prefers berries, while the others like melon. Some desserts just don’t travel well, while others need a fridge – so here come the coolers, the ice bags and the BBQ? Napkins, + more, are you tired yet?

It’s time to simplify. Grab a blanket and stop into your nearest Take Five Café. We have an assortment of wraps + panini on all kinds of breads. Salads are crisp, washed + ready! Our fruit cups have something in them for everyone; the desserts are sold as singles so every family member has a choice! There are lots of beverages to choose from + coffee concoctions can be taken to go! At Take Five Café we have everything you need for a stress free picnic – except the blanket! Find your nearest Take Five Café and enjoy dining al fresco today.

Celebrating Summer at Take Five Café

At Take Five Café, we’re celebrating the sun. Summer in Vancouver is the best of everything; longer days, warmer weather, and hopefully a bit of time to ‘take five’ for yourself.

For the perfect summertime treat, stop by any Take Five Café and try a refreshing fruit smoothie. Made with some of our favourite fruits (peach, mango, strawberry, to name a few) and full of flavour they are the perfect afternoon pick-me up.
