East Van Roasters (319 Carrall Street in the Rainier Hotel) is a 16-seat specialty cafe and social enterprise of the PHS Community Services Society. EVR is committed to encouraging women that are re-entering the work-force through mentorship based programming and on the job training. We support at-risk people in a compassionate and supportive environment filled with meaningful work and nourishing food. East Van Roasters creates organic ‘bean to bar’ chocolate and coffee roasted and prepared on site. Delicious organic drinking chocolate and coffees, hand rolled truffles, single-origin chocolate bars and select pastries are offered in the cafe. East Van Roasters will supply freshly roasted coffee and cacao nibs, as well as couverture and customized chocolate wholesale to industry professionals and businesses. Come in and taste chocolate freshly made right from the bean!

East Van Roasters is a non-profit social enterprise of the PHS Community Services Society.  We provide support and training to the women residents of the Rainier Hotel and other downtown Eastside housing initiatives.  We are a fully registered charity and would love to have your support!

We are currently trying to raise funds to purchase equipment needed to increase our production capacity and hire more community members to help with our holiday production and beyond. If you are interested in supporting our program, there are three ways you can do so: 

1.  Send a cheque (payable to East Van Roasters) to 319 Carrall Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 2J4.  If your donation exceeds $50.00 we are happy to provide a charitable tax receipt - we ask that you include your name and return address, as well as a self-addressed stamped envelope if possible.

2.   Stop by the shop and donate by cash, debit or credit card.
