You’re going to be on the run from morning until night during the Games—sightseeing, cheering, celebrating local cultural events and activities. Probably one of the most fun activities on your list will be “refueling.”

Yew restaurant + bar is ready for whatever kind of pick-me-up you’re looking for.

In the morning—power up with our AM Energy Boost. The “Sea-the-Sky” Smoothie is a blend of great-for-you ingredients featuring local berries, yogurt and fresh juices to get the day off right. With the fast pace you’re keeping, it’s not easy to consume the daily recommended amount of fruit and vegetables—so make it easy with this delicious drink. Keep it healthy all the way and pair with house-made granola and seasonal fruit, multi-grain pancakes (made slightly less virtuous but extra tasty with caramelized bananas) or scrambled egg whites and goat cheese.

Keep smiling through happy hour and into the night with our PM Energy Boost. The “Pick Yew Up” cocktail was invented by YEW mixologist Justin Taylor and features Vancouvite’s most beloved ingredient—espresso! Made with 49th Parallel Espresso, Van Gogh Espresso Vodka and Bailey’s Irish Cream, the Pick Yew Up does just that. 49th Parallel is the grandfather of Vancouver’s current coffee-culture craze—a premium local roaster, their coffee is synonymous with quality. Van Gogh Espresso Vodka is infused with fine Italian coffee and creates a layer of kick and complexity. Thick chocolate syrup is the cherry on top.

With these two “get-going beverages” even the speed skaters might have trouble keeping up with you.
