Step outside for some fresh air and grab a revitalizing drink in Downtown New West to get you through those afternoon meetings!


1. Vietnamese Iced Coffee @ V Cafe
If you’ve never tried Vietnamese Iced Coffee (Ca Phe Sua Da), you’re missing out! It consists of 2 components: strong espresso and creamy condensed milk, poured over ice and served fresh. It’s built a cult fan base for it’s unique taste and punch of power!


2. Bojito @ Bobacabana

When you combine fresh fruit, sparkling soda, and mint ….. yummy bojito goodness! This unique cross-over between Boba and a Mojito comes in tons of flavours making it the ultimate refresher, and did we mention how visually appealing it is? It was basically made for Instagram!


3. Okanagan Peach Green Lemonade @ Great Wall Tea

A lovely blend of green tea, Jasmine, peach + a splash of lemon juice. You can't go wrong with this combination! While you’re there, stop for a couple minutes and take in the view of the Fraser River from the River Market. Note: You can make any tea on their menu iced!

4. Cold Brew @ Old Crow Coffee Co.

Not to be confused with iced coffee, cold brew is steeped for up to 24 hours to deliver nuanced flavours in a new and refreshing format. Pop in during one of Old Crow’s open-mic nights and try their take! Tip: Pair it with a delicious warm vegan donut on Wednesday or Saturday!

5. Southern Sweet Tea @ Re-Up BBQ

You wouldn't think to go to a barbeque joint for a drink, but this one screams Southern! Take it out onto the Pier and enjoy this heavenly blend.
