Thank you Lindsay Anderson for the nice feature (On Rocanini Coffee and Books) on Rocanini Coffee Roasters in Steveston! Lindsay took some wonderful photos and put together a nice writeup on our location in Steveston. As Lindsay writes, "I like a coffee shop that’s big enough I don’t have to worry about finding a seat, but not so large that I’ll forever remain a stranger. I like savouries on offer but sweets even more, which I can dip into London fogs or spicy chai teas. I like when their music makes me sway, but doesn’t distracting me from my friends, writing, or book. And I love, love, LOVE when a coffee shop has local art on its walls." After reading...
