We are vegans and were curious to check out this raw place during our visit to Vancouver. It's located in the very downtown area, in a basement. Servers were acting busy and snotty, not sure why the attitude - isn't raw and vegan food lifestyle...More

Very fresh food. Can't believe how good they make a raw, vegan lasagne taste. My carnivore husband was wowed!

Definitely a respite for a health conscious traveller. Great raw vegan food. I try to visit whenever i am in Van. Super staff are great at reccomending menu items and advising those new to the raw food genre.

We went there for a team lunch...I foudn it slightly overpriced. The menu is creative but this place is only for hardcore raw food fans ...not great option for someone who wants to try out raw food.

A nice friendly little lunch place. Lots of Vegan food on menu. We weren't so interested in the raw aspect....but we loved what we got. Even bought the cook book.

We came for lunch, the food was really tasty and the smoothies were pretty good too. We had the lasagne and the Main Street monkey sandwich, the flax bread is thin so impossible to eat without a knife and fork but the food was great...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
