New neighbourhood cafe opens at West 70th and Cartier

JUN 2015 – Gigi Blin Market Cafe at 1400 West 70th Avenue is Marpole's newest coffee shop open Monday-Friday 7am to 5pm and Saturdays 8am to 5pm. They are currently closed Sundays.

Owners Mark and Iwona have renovated the former Kim's Grocery store using reclaimed custom wood furniture from J&S Reclaimed Wood Custom Furniture located nearby at 43-1640 East Kent Avenue South.

They chose the character building because they saw that Marpole didn't have many independent neighbourhood coffee shops.

Gigi Blin serves Umbria coffee and has WiFi.

@danwithatwist: Pleased to welcome gigi.blin to #marpole! This former Gastown hipster feels little more at homeā€¦
