East Van Roasters

Currently our 319 Carrall street location is closed due to water damage from the fire at the Rainier Hotel - estimated re-open early July. Chocolate and coffee available at our sister store The Window Community Art Shop 11 W. Hastings St. & our bagged coffee is always available at www.spud.ca

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.  Designed to provide pre-employment training and work opportunity for the women residents of the Rainier Hotel, 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 Tuesday-Friday, 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 10am to 5pm. 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 see how chocolate is 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.

3.   Purchase our products :-)
