Mr. Mustache Tea & Dessert: Bento Box and Oolong Tea Macchiato

It is difficult to look for a cafe that opens until midnight in Vancouver, but if you are in the Burnaby or Marpole area, I have a recommendation for you. Mr. Mustache Tea & Dessert has 2 locations, one on Granville Street and one across Metrotown on Sussex Street. The best thing about the cafe is that it opens until midnight.
