For our second day of WEBIA’s 12 Days of Holidays business feature campaign, we are focusing on one of the amazing businesses that helps get us caffeinated and through our mornings, Cafe Portrait!

Cafe Portrait is new to the West End this year, opening in February 2020 to provide a new spin on the traditional café experience for locals and visitors alike. The business is a collaborative family partnership between Dennis Dalyanci and Engin Dalyanci, the father-son team that creates both the delicious menu, and the titular portraits that give Cafe Portrait its charm and atmosphere.

The friendly team serves up unique coffee crafted from freshly roasted Pallet coffee beans. Dennis brews their traditional Turkish coffee blend over hot sand, a tradition going back 100’s of years, and a great conversation starter! Their brunch menu is also the perfect way to start your morning, blending Middle Eastern recipes with fresh, local ingredients.

We suggest taking a moment during this busy holiday season to sit down, relax, and enjoy a cup of great coffee while enjoying the visual feast that Engin has created on every wall. Between the adorned portraits and the friendly, safe service, Cafe Portrait is one of our favourite places to unwind in the heart of the West End.

We chose to feature Cafe Portrait today not just for their uplifting story and perfectly roasted coffee, but also because they are up for the 2020 Snobby Awards and need our help to win!

The infamous Vancouver Coffee Snob is hosting the 2020 Snobby Awards, designed to award the best coffee shops here in Vancouver, while also introducing you to awesome new places. Cafe Portrait is up for the “Best New Coffee Shop” Award for 2020, and is the only West End nominee this year!

Let’s support local and help one of our community gathering spaces (restrictions applied – thanks 2020) get their well-deserved award, while entering you in a fantastic draw.
