Coffee shop review – Lugz (Main St and Broadway) October 3, 2007

Posted by Raul in coffee, East Vancouver, local business, Main Street.

I had been meaning to come have a coffee at Lugz, not only because Jark (the owner of Lugz) is also a blogosphere friend and I had been meaning to introduce myself “irl” (that’s how we say in real life – I just learned this acronym from my very good friend Nomade Moderne), but also because I live in this neighborhood so I feel that I should know all my local coffee shops. So, as I was walking home from work today I decided to stop by, say hi to Jark and have a coffee. Very good decision on my part.

First off, Lugz only serves ethical coffee (fair-trade). Second, they serve cinnamon rolls (from a local pastry shop that I pass every day on my way to work and I always forget the name — J used to stop there occasionally to buy me a cinnamon roll on his way to pick me up and I can’t recall the name for the life of me). Third, Lugz provides a very comfortable atmosphere to have a coffee and relax. Fourth, Lugz has a broad range of food items to satisfy your hunger. And fifth, free wireless internet.

You have no portable computer to use their free wireless? Not to worry. Lugz offers terminals for use. And the relaxed, open space concept really invites you to just grab a nice coffee or tea, sit down, relax, read the paper (or bring your laptop and do some work — which I can’t do at the moment since my laptop decided to stop functioning last week).

I think that at some point in my life, I did stop by Lugz but it must have been briefly and only to send an email, but now that I took the time to stop by and have a cinnamon roll and a coffee, I know that I will come back often. All in all, Lugz is a great coffee shop, and I’ll be swinging by often from now onwards.

Oh and for those of you who don’t know of Jark’s other passion (writing), he’s one of the main editors at Beyond Robson 🙂 — just so you know…
