Our coffee

PROUDLY SERVING COFFEE FROM PALLET COFFEE ROASTERS

At Pallet, our priority is immaculate quality. Since much of this begins at the ground level, our coffee has a direct link to the relationships we have fostered with farmers and producers across the world, who now have become like family to us. 
Through ongoing collaborations, we continually build sustainable long term relationships and showcase the passion, hard work and dedication of the farmers, families and communities behind each cup that we serve to our customers daily. 
Our delicate roasting process centers on the bean itself, taking into consideration its origin, varietal, and processing style: in this way we are able to unlock the bean’s naturally unique characteristics. The result is a presentation of authentic flavors, rather than flavors imparted by the roasting process. Before we introduce a new coffee to our menu, it must pass multiple rigorous cupping and tasting sessions in order to qualify against our stringent standards. 
This is why we’ve been recipients of awards for our beans for consecutive years!

Our Food

Crafted by our certified team of Red Seal Chefs, Palate’s food offerings are built to excite and entice! Some of our innovative approaches to classic breakfast, lunch and brunch items include our Famous French Toast, our Mascarpone Hot Cake, & our classic Palate Burger.

 

However, in true Palate fashion, we’ve also added an unforgettable High Tea experience, alongside a crowd puller cocktail menu ready to satisfy a range of taste buds.

 

Our Corporate Chef Zouhair Benchiker uses his worldly experience to craft and offer personalized catering, special event menus, and plated reception dinners.

Building History

An establishment designed to endure.
 

Renowned today for its spectacular interior, classic food, exceptional coffee, and seamless service, Palate Kitchen has earned its reputation as one of Vancouver's most respected all-day café-restaurants.

Built in 1921, this Georgian Revival Style heritage building was the special headquarters for one of our province's largest insurance and real estate firms, "Ceperly Rounsefell Co.", which was occupied by joint owners Henry Ceperley and Frances Rounsefell.

Rehabilitated in 2011, in conjunction with the famous Jameson House development, this site is nestled in the prestigious and desirable location now known as the Financial District of Downtown Vancouver.

Occupied by a diverse range of businesses over the years, Palate Kitchen is proud to be the new host of this stunning space, marking it as a new and extravagant brunch concept developed by Pallet Coffee Roasters.
