About Us

A born and raised resident of Richmond, BC, Tim Lee is the owner of Sanctuary Cafe. As an avid runner and cyclist, he has run the Boston Marathon and has climbed iconic mountains in the Alps and the Dolomites on two wheels. He understands the important balance between exercise and good coffee. One without the other...what's the point?! Living by his mantra #civilcycling and #civilrunning.

As a Steveston resident for the past 20 years, he wants to bring a little bit of Vancouver to the local community, showcasing some of the best coffee roasts and featuring artisan bakers from the best of BC. Most importantly, he wants to get residents out of their cars walking, running and riding to Sanctuary Cafe for great coffee, food and conversation.
