Cornerstone on West 4th Ave and Stephens St, Vancouver

Polly and I stumbled upon this neighbourhood cafe on one of our ladies meet. We were actually looking for Farbourg without knowing the address. It’s my mistake as I misplaced the address in another bag and I merely remembered the address is somewhere on West 4th but actually it’s on West 41st. It’s a big blunder of mine.


We were told by the server that this corner cafe has been here for 5 1/2 years already. I wonder if the place got it’s name from the frontage decor or they decorated their frontage according to the name. The sandwich board outside the cafe states that they serve certified organic coffee.


This is a small cafe where you order and pay for your food at the counter. There is a buffet display of drinks, sandwiches and some bake goods. When I asked the server if they make the food themselves, she told me they … only bake muffins and cookies in house.


A one page menu was posted on the pillar near the counter. Their menu comprises of breakfast and lunch items. Prices are reasonable.


We were surprised that such cafe also serves beer and wine. Maybe it’s for the customers who come here to watch games on 2 overhead TVs.


There are various setting like counter seats overlooking the street, small tables for 2 with regular chairs and a couple of tables with more comfortable sofas. We were able to get one of the more comfortable seats. They do have wifi.


We ordered a Vegetable Quiche to share. For food that need warming and garnishing, they will bring them to your table. The quiche is quite a big serving. It is served warm. It has carrots, spinach, corn and cheese and it’s creamy. The quiche is one of the items in the buffet.


We also ordered a Waffle with Fresh Fruit to share. This is $6.25. It has banana, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries and topped with whipped cream. It’s about 6 inches in diameter. We found that the waffle is not crispy on the outside. It could be due to we had this later because we wanted to eat the warm quiche first.

This cafe accepts credit cards.

It’s a corner cafe where customers can relax and meet up for a cup of coffee.

    Read again, Amanda. Farbourg is the one on 41st. I think they know that Cornerstone is on 4th, since they actually went there…
