Rocanini Coffee Roasters x Steveston
Rocanini Coffee Roasters' cafe in Steveston is a 45 seater spacious and bright cafe in the heart of Richmond's Fisherman's village offering handcrafted coffee from beans roasted at their Mount Pleasant roastery since 2010. The white interior is accented with natural woods, industrial vents, high ceilings and windows that invite tons of natural light. The walls are filled with art from local artists which rotate regularly. On the counter they have an Oji cold brew coffee system from Japan which looks like it belongs in a chemistry lab.

- Nice space to hang out, read or work.
- Best coffee offered in Steveston in our opinion.
- Supporting local artists!
- Pursuit of high quality coffee.
- Staff is very quiet which doesn't come across as friendly.
But they are quite hard working!
- While the main cafe is clean. Clean your damn washrooms!
Part of the problem is vistors using the washroom without buying anything.
