About the bean

For over thirteen years, The Laughing Bean (or 'The Bean,' as our regulars know it,) has kept Vancouver fully caffeinated, providing damn good coffee to the East Village Community and beyond. Since opening in 2003, we've become a fixture in the 'hood, giving coffee lovers an unforgettably offbeat cafe experience. As a member of LOCO, we pride ourselves on strengthening our community by sourcing the majority of our products from local suppliers and businesses. From our friendly baristas and cozy atmosphere, to our deliciously roasted coffees and fresh baked goods, The Bean will be your happy place. 

Great coffee, friendly people – instantly became a regular.
