Calling all dog-loving coffee snobs: There’s a new event happening next month that both you and your pooch are going to love.

Vancouverites are invited to enjoy a stroll with their four-legged best friend while discovering some of the best coffee Kitsilano has to offer.

It’s called the Canine Coffee Crawl — and the brains behind the fun, dog-friendly event are the founders of Vancouver Coffee Snob and PawSwap.

If anyone knows where to find Vancouver’s best drip, beans, or latte it’s the anonymous blogger behind Vancouver Coffee Snob, who has been dedicated to sipping cups of joe across the city since 2015.

The coffee enthusiast is also a dog lover and is working with the creator of PawSwap — an app with the mission to challenge the status quo of the “no dogs allowed” rule to create, plan, promote, and inspire events that are more inclusive of dogs — for the event.

On March 15, Vancouverites can join 20 dog owners for a guided one-hour coffee crawl with the founders.

The tour starts off at Prado Fir for a drip coffee paired with in-house baked items, continues to Be Fresh for two organic drip coffee flavour tastings, then heads to the iconic Bel Cafe for a coffee, cookies and pastries pairing, before the last coffee stop at Viva Fine Foods & Bakery. 

The tour then ends at Kits Beach, where the group will continue chatting while the dogs get to let off some steam.

Canine Coffee Crawl

When: Sunday, March 15 at 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Where: 1809 Fir St.

Cost: Tickets are $25. The social event includes an outdoor tasting at all four coffee shops and a swag bag courtesy of Prado Cafe, Be Fresh, and PawSwap for you and your pup enjoy.
