Busy place, decent value for money.

A group of 5 of us went here on a Sunday. We knew from reading reviews on other sites that it would be busy -- they serve brunch until 3 pm daily, as well as the regular menu. We got there about 1:35 and waited 1/2 hour for a table. That was ok, we expected it. If there were fewer of us, we would have been seated earlier. Due to the full restaurant, it started out a bit noisy but settled down after about 2:30.
Everyone ordered something different, and everyone liked their meal. Only 2 of us are vegetarian -- it's good when omnivores like it too. I was a little disappointed by mine, The Vegan. It didn't have as much spice as I had expected in the tofu scramble. I had some bites of my husband's meal, a baked burrito. Very nice.
The drinks come in glass mason jars. They have regular coffee and tea as well as herbals, organic soft drinks and a full bar menu.
The portions were so big, no one could even consider dessert but everyone except me finished their meal.
Service was ok, nothing special. Nice selection of music.
One huge bonus of this place is that they strive to be carbon-neutral. They have composting behind the building and receive their deliveries by bike or on foot, not by delivery trucks.
Overall this is a nice addition to the Vancouver veg. restaurant scene and I would recommend this place over the Naam (similar type of place) any day, partly for the better selection of vegan options and better selection in general.
good selection of vegan options, carbon-neutral!, good value for money
can be busy/need to wait
