A Vancouver gem has been at 28th & St. George for almost 2 years now. The March St. George is located in a residential area between Main and Fraser, and is easily one of the best and most relaxing cafes to stop for a croissant and coffee. The Marche is a family affair and carries well chosen everyday items, either local & ethically produced or hand picked European grocery items, sprinkled with textiles and ceramics. Attached to the cafe is the home of the owners and alongside chickens in the backyard are 2 of ‘Mellifera Bees’ hives, which will produce raw honey to be sold directly at the Marche come Sept. It moves quickly, so be on your toes! Should you happen to miss out on that limited edition ’28th & St.George’ honey the standard infused lemon, vanilla and cardamom will be there to brush your tears away.
