About us

The Pinkavo Story

Our story starts here

We are Shaughnessy Otsuji and Chaylene Liddell, the co-owners and founders of Pinkavo Cafe! Our restaurant has been a dream of ours after visiting many inspiring cafes and restaurants around the world. We wished that there was a place we could go to locally that would feel like we were on vacation!

We decided to start working on a business that would bring people together in our own hometown in the same way that a cafe in Los Angeles or Melbourne would bring forth a crowd. We aimed to create a space that customers near and far would want to travel to for delicious food, coffee, and a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. Fortunately, our dreams were brought to life when we were announced as the winners of the 2018 Start It Up Langley Contest held by the Downtown Langley Business Association!

Our Mantra

PINKAVO Cafe is all about good coffee, good eats, and good vibes! We offer a delicious menu with many options for our plant-based and dairy or gluten-sensitive customers. PINKAVO is an intersection where vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and curious omnivores can come together over a delicious latte and a meal. We believe good food should be enjoyed by everyone! With our wide variety of dairy alternatives and plant-focused menu items, we are a unique dining destination within the ever-growing community of Langley, BC!
