Greenhorn Espresso Cafe Vancouver located on a quiet corner of Nicola Street and Nelson. I was first attracted to this independent coffee shop because of its decor and record collection. Getting to Greenhorn coffee shop wasn't exactly easiest with multiple one-way, no exit and the business of Vancouver downtown. But it was worth the inconvenience.
I liked that Greenhorn has a pretty extensive coffee menu (espresso, macchiato, cortado, cappucino etc.); in addition to food options such as baguette, sandwiches, salads and Belgian waffles.
Cappucino. I loved the coffee bean Greenhorn Espresso Cafe uses. It is dark, earthy and robust. Unlike some independent espresso bars that shift towards acidic tasting coffees. It's all about personal tastes. I prefer the taste of earthy and nuttiness of java.
I love the crema from this cappucino. It had the perfect temperature and very smooth. On sunny day, this would be perfect on the patio.
Vietnamese Iced Coffee: Although it looks like a pretty small glass for 4.50. Looking at the size, you may probably feel under-poured! Typical pho restaurant gives you twice the size for 3 bucks! However, there is a lot of caffeine that you do not realized. I don't want you to stare at the ceiling into the morning!
There is plenty of seating area at Greenhorn. Two levels, patio and upstairs record collection. Good for browsing and impressing that person on a date for finding this local gem.
