River Maiden Artisan Coffee. Serving excellent coffee, and featuring a decent atmosphere to do coffeeship things, such as chatting, reading, and computing. They serve up wonderfully extracted and presented Stumptown Coffee Roasters, have a beautiful enthusiasm for their local Vancouver.
I've done a fair bit of reading so far at the River Maiden, and appreciate the comfortable environment, which is distinctly lacking in retro-industrial unfinished furniture. They also showcase art on their walls, as well. In fact, in some ways, River Maiden reminds me of one of my favorite coffeeshops of all time, the long defunct Crooked House in Salem, Oregon. Thanks for the great coffee and excellent atmosphere.
