Cafe Planet Java in Historical Fort Langley, Greater Vancouverlanet Java is a unique cafe in Vancouver with the atmosphere of 50s and 60s. Elvis Presley and everything related to the life and activities of the great singer is the main theme. They say that in 1956 when on his international tour around the world Elvis did come to Vancouver. Definitely, he wanted to see the most ancient spot in the area. He came to Fort Langley and spotted a nice cafe shop where he had lunch and some beer. The owner was a smart fella so he took a chance of the event and decided to promote Elvis here in Vancouver. He established communication with the famous singer, and received lots of staff from his personal belongings. Now they are all on display! Just check for our pics...

About Fort LangleyFort Langley was founded in 1827 when the Bay Hudson Company built this first settlement near Vancouver. The well-known Bay Department Store is what became of the company later. The Fort was established on the Fraser river, east of Vancouver, so that the hunters could bring furs to the storage at the Fort, and fishermen would deliver salmon and pelts there.
All this stuff would be sold to various parts of the world: Europe, United States, and Asia. In exchange the Bay Hudson Company provided merchandize to hunters and fishermen. In 1839 the Fort was hauled to the place where it sits now. In 1858 gold was discovered on the Fraser river and strikers rushed into the area. However, due to the U.S. threat to invade the province, in the same 1858 year British Columbia declared itself the British colony, and Fort Langley became an official staging post for gold-diggers.
We are located at:
9178 Glover Rd. Fort Langley, V1M 2R4, Greater Vancouver.
