Innocent Coffee &TUR was established in 2010 by myself (YaWei) and my brother (Jerome) with the concept of making fresh and tasteful products in the forms of coffee, pastry and arts. After 5 years of sweet labour in the little white house near Granville Island in Vancouver, we are restructuring and rebranding our operation into a retail shop called The Taste and See Shop. The Taste and See Shop is a super compact 228 square feet multi-purpose retail shop for tasteful coffee, arts and products. We re-opened our door on January 5, 2016 on 129-1628 West 1st Ave Vancouver (by Fir St, right in the back alley behind West Marine, the blue and white building). Our hours are Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 5:00, Saturday from 9:00-4:00 and shut on Sundays and holidays.
We are also calling for art submission for 2017 (please see "submission opportunities" for details). We have been hosting and curating arts and cultural events since 2011 and will continue to support and showcase artists of all levels.
Please note that due to the compact nature of the space, there is no washroom and no public Wi-Fi in the shop. We apologize beforehand if this causes a great inconvenience to you.
