“Whenever I travel to Japan, I simply love visiting Japan’s unique, boutique cafes and coffee shops. They are wonderful places to enjoy a quiet moment or relax after a busy day at work. At Daigyo, we wanted to bring that similar concept to life and use high-quality, Japanese ingredients, such as amazing matcha from Shizuoka, which is the largest region in Japan that grows green tea and is known for their world-famous matcha powders.” – Grace Han, co-owner, Daigyo Cafe.
Daigyo Cafe’s drink menu will feature a selection of lattes, teas, and premium matcha, highlighting two special kinds – a Spring Matcha Powder that is vibrant green and tastes sweeter and a Winter Matcha Powder that is stronger and bitter in taste and great for lattes.
Daigyo also has a variety of signature iced confections – think White Peach Jasmine Smoothieand Organic Matcha Floats. House specials include beverages such as affogatos with matcha soft serve, Daigyo espresso to the Yuzu O-Matcha.
For cold treats, guests can indulge in Daigyo’s matcha soft serve in a cup or cone and beautifully-crated parfaits. Customers can customize their parfaits with different toppings as well. On the savoury side, Daigyo is bringing Japanese Pressed Sandos to Vancouver. These sandos feature a delicious filling inside Shokupan (Japanese milkbread). It is pressed to order and enjoyed warm.
