Hip Commune

AUGUST 13TH, 2010

Hip Commune

What’s red and white and wood all over? The new Commune Cafe at the corner of Seymour and Nelson.

The spot serves up three square meals a day and the space, designed by Evoke, is as cool as they come with cork pendant lights, red lacquered chairs around a long wooden common table and grey felt booths along the windows. Outside another 25 people-watching seats are up for grabs on a heated patio. You could take a wild Oregon shrimp and tarragon mayo brioche hoagie ($9) to go, but we suggest staying in with a glass of Blasted Church’s Hatfield’s Fuse ($7) or Pop Shoppe cream soda ($2.75) if you’ve still got work to do.

Offering free-range, organic and sustainable goods and using eco-friendly cleaning supplies, the place is a part hippie and we’re happy for it.

Commune Cafe, 1002 Seymour St., Vancouver, 604-681-2551,
