Although South Granville’s second location of Bump n Grind Café opened nearly a month ago to date, last night was their media kick-off, introducing local writers and food lovers to their assortment of divine sweets, coffees, teas, and sandwiches.

On hand to greet guests were owners Cheryl and Kyle Wright, busy parents and owners of two cafés (another Bump n Grind exists at 916 Commercial near Venables).

Even before the first Commercial Drive café was frothing milk for those beautiful cappuccinos, Cheryl competed and placed fifth overall in the National Canadian Barista Championship.

The couple are passionate about serving quality coffee and food, and found a community-oriented space right along busy shopping corridor South Granville Street. I agree; the spot is located right next door to Meinhardt’s and in the heart of an easily-accessible street that receives a lot of daily foot traffic.

Bump n Grind’s coffee selection regularly rotates to showcase Canadian coffee roasters; Phil & Sebastian Coffee hails from Calgary, Alberta while Fernwood Coffee comes from Victoria. I also spotted Brooklyn, New York’s Mast Brothers chocolate bars. I’ve got my eye on that Stumptown Coffee chocolate bar!

The cozy, well-lit cafe feats wood accents designed by Tetherstone Construction’s Dallas Matson. Reclaimed fir wood beams with simple light bulb fixtures suspended from the ceiling aim to bring the room’s height down, while tabletops and display shelving are made of polished ash and walnut.

Look for pour-over coffee, Aeropress, and French press coffees in addition to espressos, lattes, and a selection of loose leaf tea (including Almond Rooibos, Organic Earl Grey, and Citrus Sencha). The dairy-free Mookie is a cross between a muffin and a cookie. Don’t miss the shortbread-like Melting Moments with a soft grapefruit filling.

Bump n Grind Café is located at 3010 Granville Street in Vancouver.
