Waves Coffee - Richmond No 3 Rd

This is the 2nd Richmond location we visited for a coffee break.  If it were not for a 2-1 coupon, we would likely not be coming here.  This location is located in the same complex as London Drugs (London Plaza) just across the street from Richmond Center Mall.

The coupon we had was for a Waves Size Mocha as you see here.

We got there on a Friday afternoon and there was only one clerk on duty taking orders and also making the drinks so she was a bit overworked.  Well, not much to this mocha. It looks ugly and not at the same level as 49th Parallel or Cafe Artigiano or JJ Bean.  There was hardly any espresso flavour to the drink, just mostly sweet chocolate flavour which makes us think there is a problem with their proportioning of the ingredients.  Could have been a bit hotter too.

Well, it was 2- 1 after all.  Definitely would not pay their full price $4.xx.

Parking at this location will be in the covered mall parkade. It is not very pleasant when the mall is busy since there are a couple of Chinese restaurants above.  During Dim Sum time you will have to suffer some road rage finding a spot in the crowded lot.

A disappointing drink and a disappointing attempt at latte art, why bother even trying?
