Yummy Samosas :p

3
Posted on 11 / 06 / 2014

Out of all the samosas, the chickpea is my favourite ( a little spicy) and I can't find any place that makes better samosas yet. I recommend the Spinach/Feta samosa if you are vegetarian or non veggie.
Also, I personally think the best pakoras they have are the zucchini ones as well. The other ones taste a bit bland and the texture is odd. Just warning others that if you decide to warm the pakoras, expect for a LONG wait time.
I have tried other things on their menu as well, but didn't really like any of them. The veggie burger tasted a bit burnt and I didn't like the buns at all. The salads are not fresh when I'm there (unless told by a friend of mine who used to work there at the time). The dhals and curries are okay, but I've had better and more fresh and hot.
Like another reviewer has stated, the desserts in the case are questionable. I walk by here a lot and they look like the same desserts from the day before. I've tried a lot of them and didn't like any of them personally. cookies were a little stale.
The location is great, seating inside and nice seating outside,hard to miss, and has a nice attached health food store. Worth checking out. :)

Pros: good samosas and pakoras, Location is great, Huge selection
Cons: Slow service, wait time to get food, Desserts and baked goods, Not very fresh food

I really like this place, lots. I just find it very frustrating on how long it takes to get your food. Never come here if you in a hurry, but do check it out.

Pros: Great Food, Great Selection
Cons: Horrible Service

Worth the stop when in Vancouver!

In Vancouver for a few days and am checking out some of the local places with Vegan food. Sweet Cherubim is about 10 minutes drive from downtown. Great variety of baked goods, including cookies, pies, muffins all of which are vegan. Also has a hot bar with Indian-influenced dishes and a coffee bar. The place is attached to a health food store which is also stocked with mostly vegan food.

Not good enough

So much choice that you wonder how fresh the food is. There are piles and piles of cookies and cakes behind the counter. The food is served canteen style and it's never quite warm enough. The service is not great, the floor is not clean so frankly, there's not much to go back for.

What an assortment!

Posted on 06 / 22 / 2012

Entering the restaurant is overwhelming!
I am sure they offer more than 80 different meals and cakes. From burger, sandwiches, soups, cake, cookies to smoothies and juices. And everything is vegan! Well, about 95% is vegan, the rest may be vegetarian or you can choose between vegan or vegetarian.
Some meals are expensive, though. For example a small piece of cake. But therefore they offer at least 10 different exotic vegan cakes. Cookies and puddings not included.

Summing up, check it out. You won't regret it ;)

Cons: Sometimes the prices

    Oh sorry, I forgot two things. The have daily offers/discounts. E.g. the vegan burger + juice of your choice for free. And after or before eating you can just go into the organic grocery store next to the restaurant. Very nice.

Good Spot

Lots of tasty (Indian-ish) items. Tons of dessert/baked goodies, too. Natural foods store adjoining, and with the Co-Op and Eternal Abundance shops in next block, this is veggie mecca!

Best Place For Vegan Desserts

5
Posted on 10 / 07 / 2009

I've been going here since around 1990. It has always been a great place to go shopping. I love the atmosphere; it's a real hub of activity; always busy. The prices have gone way up over the years, but... so have prices everywhere else. I will say that they have the most creative, tasty, and exciting desserts. They even had raw selections long before the recent raw trend. The restaurant has a LOT of vegan choices. I never bothered to count, but it must be 98% vegan. Note: cookies, samosas, etc. in restaurant have more tax than the same sold on the store side. It's just a wonderful place and I imagine they will still be here long after the current health/vegan/raw/etc. trend has dissipated. Go pig out on desserts here!

Pros: Great desserts, Cookies, bread, etc. made by them, Leader in the Veg community
Cons: Druggies, bums, etc. around, Well used toilets, Uuug, the city is so filthy!!

The Samosas were worth the drive. Don't miss the chickpea and potato! To die for. The carrot juice is also very tasty.

Pros: Great value, Excellent food
Cons: Parking

Has a deli- style set up. Food was pretty good. Salads are huge! Even the "side salad"- so be warned!
Wonderful selection of vegan baked goods!
Atrocious service....be prepared to wait and wait.

Pros: bakery, vegan
Cons: service is awful
