Matchstick Coffee is located on Fraser and Kingsway, just a few stores down from Les Faux Bourgeois. M and I were eating nearby and a coworker suggested we walk a block over to try his favourite coffee spot.
It’s a little bit hidden, but if you walk around, you’ll find the big ‘M’.
This place is pretty hip. A good place to chill with friends, do some work on your laptop, or have a meeting.
The space is pretty perfect and the interior is aesthetically pleasing.
They sell their coffee as beans and even have some little pastries.
Almond Milk Latte ($3.75) I tried getting soy but that wasn’t an option. I’ve never had a latte with almond milk before, but it really made this latte taste weird. Also almost sour tasting. It was hard to drink.
Cold El Llano Brewed Coffee ($3.25) was ordered by M and he loved it. He liked the taste as it had hints of macadamia nuts and plum.
Overall, it’s a great place for brewed coffee, but stay away from the Almond Milk Lattes. I’d definitely come again for a regular latte and just sit and chill here.
