Artigiano Announces Newest Cafe in Whistler Village

Artigiano Announces New Whistler Location

Vancouver-based, family-owned and -operated café chain continues
ambitious expansion plan in BC.

Award-winning, locally owned and operated café chain Artigiano (formerly Caffe Artigiano) is pleased to announce the opening of its newest location in Whistler Village (4340 Lorimer Road).

This is the latest in the brand’s enterprising expansion and franchising program of converting former Starbucks locations into Artigiano cafés, all while revitalizing neighbourhoods and supporting local artists. The new Whistler location is locally owned by community partner Angela Lovegrove, who, prior to becoming a franchisee, worked with Artigiano as a manager for more than 4 years.

The new Artgiano Whistler café, which houses 10 interior seats and 20 heated patio seats, proudly features Keep it Wild, an interior mural wall and ceiling feature created by award-winning, BC-based graphic artist Alex James Fowkes.

“This mural is all about consciousness,” says Fowkes. “The coastal mountain range is a beautiful place to live, work, and play. As a mindful resident of the Sea to Sky corridor, it’s important to ensure everyone considers how they move through and impact their surroundings. Keep it Wild is all about emphasising the ‘pack it in, pack it out’ ethos. Leave a space better than you found it, call people out who are not respecting the land or nature, and consider every footstep.”

Artigiano’s new Whistler location will feature the menu favourites available at all 23 Western Canada locations including an inventive “grab and go” programme perfect for ski season, and the recently launched selection of hot fall/winter 2022 drinks.

A pioneer of Canada’s coffee culture, Artigiano brought superior coffee, latte art skills, and just a touch of European bravado to Vancouver over 20 years ago. Our dedication to the craft of coffee-making has attracted a very loyal following, created its own class of coffee aficionados, and garnered international barista awards that put us on the world stage. Launched as a single, standalone café on Vancouver’s Hornby Street, Artigiano now owns and operates 16 cafés in B.C. and three in Alberta, each one recognized for its superior coffee and welcoming environment.
