Greenhorn: Come For The Coffee...Stay For The Food
The West End is the largest neighbourhood in Vancouver's downtown core, and has a broad demographic. Greenhorn Espresso Bar opened up smack in the middle of the West End, in between heritage apartment buildings, corner grocery stores, and a few small shops. This little café has become a mecca for locals, and few tourists end up here. The espresso, coffee and bar drinks are equally delicious (Vancouver's locally roasted Moja beans) but I suggest you come hungry - the food is worth it.
The Short Rib French Dip sandwich and Spanish Tortilla are hits, and the pastries are perfect. Don't leave without sampling something from the menu.

I loved this place. Getting there, I walked through a beautiful neighborhood I would not otherwise have discovered. A very hip place with local art displayed in back room. The espresso was spot-on and I had a delicious baguette with Brie and compost - so glad I came !
