In the winter of 1993, we tested our concept on the streets of Vancouver, working out of a small roadside kiosk that was no more than 200 square feet. We made and served coffee by day and did our baking at night. The opportunity to take a great space on Denman Street became available, and we risked it all – we put our family home on the line with the bank and began this journey. After four years of working the store day and night , we felt we had the recipe and the experience to open up our second store in Edgemont Village, North Vancouver. We experienced great success in our own neighbourhood and subsequently opened our Dundarave store in 1999, Park Royal Village in 2005, and our most recent store, Lynn Valley Village in 2008.
We are a family business, and always have been. All three of our sons grew up working in the business, and two of them are still involved today. In addition, Robin’s sister Bitsy is the manager at our Edgemont Village location. Our vision is to be an integral part of the communities in which we do business. We work hard to be your neighbourhood coffeehouse and gathering place.
Each Delany’s location is positioned in a village-like area because we love being at he heart of our community. You’ll find each Delany’s has its own unique personality and decor, unlike many other franchise or “chain” coffee shops. Most of our stores are additionally characterized by photographs and/or art from
locals in our community. We hope you find each store unique yet welcoming with that inviting “Delany’s charm”.
English Bay, Denman Street is my favorite
The very first of our locations, Delany’s on Denman has been serving the finest coffee to Vancouver’s West End community since September, 1993. We focus on great coffee, and great service, which has helped us to become a neighbourhood fixture – a busy destination whenever the city congregates in English Bay. Even our customers who have moved across town – or across the country – make a point of “coming home” to Delany’s, where they can always find a familiar face and a warm greeting. While the landscape of the coffee industry has transformed since our inception in 1993, Delany’s on Denman has kept pace with the times, offering the best of what a good cup of coffee is all
