For lunch and coffee dates in the neighborhood: Greenhorn Cafe
One of my favorite local hangouts, Greenhorn Cafe, its a little spot in the heart of the west end, its always buzzing yet has a living room kind of feel especially in the back room, where there is a great collection of records and a cute spot to sip on coffee and eat the delicious kale salad they have for lunch. This spot always comes to mind when thinking of a place for a casual meeting or even a spot to work at for the day, its just got it all and for sure recommend a visit when walking around the west end area of Vancouver.
