Help! Good coffee needed, downtown Vancouver!

Can one of the hounds point me to where in the downtown vicinity (near Robson and Burrard, or anywhere in the central city for that matter) we can get really good, or even really decent coffee? We've been here for three days now, and haven't had a good cup of coffee yet. The closest was the cappucino I had at West last night, which was pretty good, but obviously I can't go there for my morning caffeine...

Even Starbucks isn't that close to here, and I'd hate to think it was the best Vancouver has to offer. Your suggestions and alternatives would be most appreciated!

Bonus points for spots nearby where we can also get pastries or a light breakfast...

(Today we tried the 'Italian' coffee bar in the Hyatt. Let me just say no: McDonalds next door has better coffee.)

Thanks for your help!
