My mornings are never complete without stopping by my Be Fresh at Bentall for my favourite smoothies. The happy people and friendly service I recieve everytime make my experiences here nothing short of excellence. Health just the way I like it 🙂
I moved to Vancouver from Calgary this summer and immediately began a hunt for a suitable site at which I could hold meetings, work on my laptop and enjoy a great vibe. After experiencing a handful of coffee shops, it became clear that there was a clear winner; to me, Be Fresh Market is the ultimate community coffee shop. Sensational staff, cool customers, brilliant beverages and fantastic, fresh food!
I absolutely love what BeFresh has to offer!
