One of the first businesses to open at The Hudson (where the Downtown Public Market is located) was 2% Jazz Coffee. This is their second location, their first being at 2631 Douglas Street, popular with coffee drinkers for many years. The decor is industrial and interesting with coffee roasting visible from an open balcony near the entrance.

The hot chocolate was tasty and very sweet. There was a hint of spice. The barista said it was chipotle, but I didn't detect any smokiness or heat, just an interesting flavour.

The space was left raw and open with lots of seating options and big windows.
