Opening soon at 93 Lonsdale Avenue in the old Waves Coffee location is 49th Parallel Café bringing a young, fresh and hip vibe to the Lolo neighbourhood. The Lower Lonsdale Shipyards District of North Vancouver has become one of the most fun places to live, work and play anywhere in Metro Vancouver, and with this new cafe coming it will shake things up with the other cafes and things will get interesting for local consumers. When competition is high, the consumer usually wins with product variety and price point benefits.
With 4 locations currently open this will be their 5th and newest location. You can learn more about their coffee business and roasting practices by visiting their website and we will have photos and a detailed interview coming soon with information on this cafe opening and what to expect for the community. The 49th Parallel brand generally has really seamless execution for their branding and marketing so this cafe location will be a hub for local creatives.
If you are planning on opening a business on Vancouver’s North Shore consider chatting with our friend Matt Thomas of Avison Young to get to know him better, as he can facilitate great lease locations for your storefront and he knows many local stakeholders in the community.
More photos and detailed interview coming soon.
