It all started with passion and a dream for Tarry and Kristine Giannakos. In 2005, the espresso enthusiast and baking wonder opened the doors of Crema. They poured their hearts into the business; after nearly two decades and countless joyful memories, the duo were ready for a change of pace. Finding the right person to take over the business was no small feat. They needed someone who shared their vision.

Finding the right person to take over the business was no small feat. They needed someone who shared their vision.

As luck would have it, longtime friend and serial entrepreneur, Luke Evanow, stopped by the café one morning. Here, over a morning ritual of coffee and catchup, Tarry asked Luke if he’d be interested in carrying on the proverbial torch. By the time Luke finished his coffee, he was all in.

Luke acquired Crema in 2018 and went to work re-imaging the space and expanding the business—with the guiding principle of preserving the essence of the café and building upon what already worked.

With his sights set on a full café and bar, the natural extension of espresso and baked goods was pizza and wine. The location has now doubled in size; it boasts a Wood Stone Fired Deck hearth oven and full bar. StudioCM transformed the interior into an airy, contemporary space where beachy West Coast vibes meet old-world nostalgia and comfort.


We love people and we love hosting them. We want our guests to be well served, well fed, and well loved—like family! 


We source the highest quality ingredients for all that we serve our guests. Locally roasted espresso, high grade flour for our baking and pizza, organic Italian olive oil, and world class wines to complement our food. Our interior is designed with the intention to inspire.


We are located across from beautiful Ambleside Park in West Vancouver. We love our community and strive to make a positive contribution to its well-being through connection. We welcome all visitors.
