Come as you are.
When we were developing the concept of our space, our lives were in a whirlwind of the race that life is, alway's moving forward with little time being made to stop and enjoy the view. Our goal for this space is to create a community for everyone. All are welcome and we encourage you to come as your are, leaving any masks or pre-conceived notions at the door. This is our space to enjoy peace and the company of our community.
The names Olive + Ruby are special to us because these are the names of our girls. Our two littles have broadened our perspective on how we live our life and we as parents are working hard to create a life of beauty for them. Olive + Ruby are our inspiration and naming our cafe after them is a consistent reminder of who we do this for.
Our goal is to create a community that casts no haste on your journey, come as you are is our wish for you.

While we visited Hawaii, we found a juice bar that we frequented. Within the space was a large mural, the space overall was simple and the mural was the star of the show. This experience planted a seed in my brain and when we started planning the space, as ideas were running through our heads Dana's art ran through my thoughts. At the time, I had admired her color and textural use from her social media page and local stores such as The Cross. It was late one night and on a whim I thought to myself, "The worst she can say is no, right?" So I emailed proposing what I wanted and no less than 5 minutes later I received an excited response saying she had been wanting to try her hand at murals and she was in! Now we have her gorgeous art showcased on a 20 foot wall. We are beyond thrilled with how it turned out and a new friendship made. Thank you Dana!
Three corners artisans
Holding a latte made with love in a hand crafted pottery mug that perfectly fits in your hands, is a beautiful thing. We were smitten with the aesthetic of Aleena's work from Three Corners Artisan and knew we needed her art in our space as our mugs. Thank you Aleena for all of your hard work, we promise we will be carful with them!
PALLET COFFEE ROASTERS
It's no secret that Vancouver has a variety of great roasters. However, after our first introduction with the team at Pallet Coffee Roasters we felt in our gut that us and Pallet was a going to be a great fit. Their team has a undeniable passion for the product they produce, they made us feel like family and we are so happy to have them in our corner.
If you have had a sandwich or any of our things on toast items, you have had the pleasure of enjoying a slice of Beyond Bread. Their bread tastes, smells and feels the way bread is meant to be enjoyed. We bring in a sourdough blend that is chewy and soft on the inside but crunchy and crisp on the outside.
