About Greenhorn Espresso Bar

Greenhorn espresso bar is nestled in the heart of the west end on a beautiful residential street. The character building at 994 Nicola Street has been transformed into a gorgeous and welcoming space devoted to great coffee (by local roaster Moja), pastries, fair trade locally made chocolates and a delicious menu of lunch and brunch items made in house. Stroll upstairs to the art gallery and ‘soon to be’ record corner with a cortado in hand. With a small outdoor patio, large windows that open onto a quiet tree-lined street, Greenhorn is a great place to hang out and enjoy the view and to spend social time with friends and family. The interior is a mix of old world charm and ‘portland cool’ that is sure to win you over and call you back for more.

Press & Accolades

“We’ve been waiting for 15 years for this to open up in the neighbourhood.” – Vancouver Courier.

“Elbow in for a window seat or a spot at the communal table – takeout seems uncalled for – and grab a weekend brunch of shakshuka baked eggs with olives and almonds, or the Spanish-style tortilla layered with soft potatoes and topped with sweet salsa fresca. But the real star is the coffee – from local roaster Moja, it’s beautifully prepared, naturally caramel-sweet, and good enough to want to pull up to the bar for a doppio and spend a lazy morning perched between a dad on a stroll with his four year old and a pair of lycra clad cyclists dissecting the days’ group ride” – Vancouver Magazine
