Sammy Piccolo purchased Prado Cafe at the original location on Commercial Drive a little over 3 years ago. He is also a partner in the 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters company, where Prado’s beans are sourced. There are now 3 Prado locations.
100 W. Hastings
All locations offer baked goods, sandwiches, light snacks and sweets.

Today we took a seat in another relatively new shop in the Mount Pleasant area, Prado Cafe + Kitchen.
The aesthetic of Prado is reminiscent of most trendy cafes around town, with dark varnished wood, metal chairs, poured concrete flooring and succulents. I enjoyed the white tiled backsplash behind the till that really helped the floor to ceiling windows to brightened up the space.

The coffee was classic 49th parallel: medium roast with full aroma and a sweet/acidic (fruity) aftertaste. I’ve grown to enjoy most of their roasts.
You can’t go wrong with 49th parallel beans mixed with a laid back and stylish environment.
Until next time,
