New Korean Café Quietly Opens In Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant Area

One thing we never get sick of is cozy cute cafés.

And Main Street has recently added a new gem to its collection of cozy cafés.

Nestled at the corner of 21st and Main Street, Café U Place has quietly opened its doors late last month, bringing a touch of Korean flavour to the bustling neighbourhood.

A Fresh Start in a Familiar Spot

Café U Place has taken over the space formerly occupied by Pittie Cafe, a dog-themed café known for its advocacy for Pit Bull type dogs.

Pittie Cafe had to shut down in December 2022 due to alleged illegal eviction issues.

Now, Café U Place is stepping in to fill the void with its unique offerings.

What’s Brewing at Café U Place?

Café U Place isn’t just about your standard coffee and bread fare.

The café boasts a refined yet inviting interior, perfect for enjoying a range of Korean staples.

Here, you can indulge in various Korean dishes like Rose Tteokbokki (Korean rice cake), Kimchi Fried Rice, Japchae, and Bulgogi, adding a savoury twist to the typical café menu.

The addition of Cafe U Place offers another delightful option for cafe-goers in an area already rich with choices.

With Foglifter Coffee, Coco Et Olive, and Liberty Cafe all within a short walk, coffee enthusiasts in Mount Pleasant are spoiled for choice.

But Café U Place stands out as Korean food is sparse along the Main Street area.
