Matchstick Coffee preps fourth Vancouver cafe location


One of Vancouver’s favourite local coffee roasters, Matchstick, is prepping their fourth location. Currently the team is building out their new space at the corner of Richards and Drake in downtown.

The new Matchstick location has been designed by Harmony Pacific Projects, who are behind some of the city’s most beautiful restaurant spaces, including Savio Volpe, Autostrada, Coquille, The Birds & the Beets, and other Matchstick locations.

Matchstick shared this update about the space on Instagram on June 19 (@matchstickyvr/Instagram)

Known for their light, bright minimalist spaces with communal seating, Matchstick considers their cafes “community spaces.” They have a strong coffee program of brewed and espresso beverages, as well as pastries and other light bites like loaded toasts and sandwiches.
