The Cardero Bottega provides a refreshing offering in a city whose retail establishments rarely stray from main roads. The cafe is a funky, neighborhood affair with a handful of tables inside and on a warm sunny day, a few more outside. The coffee is good and the atmosphere great, although true to the general West End, not highly sophisticated in... More

Wow - what a treat. This little coffee place feels a million miles from Vancouver's busy West End. It is quite small - in a cosy, cute way. The patrons are usually locals are more than apt to strike up a conversation. The espresso (runs just under 3.00 for a large double) is very good - no burnt taste, smooth,... More

Awesome characteristic cardero st has this gem in the middle. Stop when walking the city cutting over from coal harbor to davie st and english bay. All the usuals to warm up your day or read a book by with old neighborhood charm.

Wine list isn't bad too. This is a staple stop for me when in coal harbor or even after a bike ride. After 8:30 pm there is always a great singer songwriter playing. Every time I've heard music here the quality has been excellent. Service is solid and nice people. Lots of craft beer and great fish tacos. Rest of... More

Got a sandwich to go. Sandwich was fine until the third bite when I pulled a long hair out of my mouth. More than enough said.

Delicious coffee, sandwich and dessert. Friendly service, and a great atmosphere for sitting on a quiet sidewalk surrounded by dog-walkers, friendly cats, beautiful greenery and genuinely happy people. A great spot for lunch or afternoon snack or early evening bite. A real Westend treasure.

I know many places claim to have the best coffee in Vancouver and of course it's a matter of personal taste, but this tiny West End cafe consistently makes coffee tailored to individual preference with a personal touch that beats the rest in my opinion. When I ask for an extra-hot breve latte, that's exactly what I get every time.... More

This place is right in the residential area of the West End neighbourhood. The seats are highly coveted as the atmosphere of this cafe and its neighbourhood is inviting. The coffee is good. The freshly-made salads are fantastic, as are the pies and sandwiches. And very affordable. They also have great grocery items, -dry and frozen. I just love sitting... More

This little coffee shop is a gem. Tucked away on a quiet street of the west end, we love to sit down and enjoy a delicious Americano and one of their paninis, on the weekend. The staff is friendly, the food is great and the coffee is amazing. Highly recommended.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
