I love this place! - Edit

The husband + wife owner/operators are super nice and welcoming. The food is healthy, fresh and organic. The wife insisted I tried her delicious bean recipe the last time I was there. They truly care and I highly recommend eating here.

Great to hang out here! - Edit

I enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere with low smooth music. A perfect organic vegetarian café to sit with my computer and work. Good service. Have not tried the food but the coffee is good.

Pros: Peaceful

NOT vegan friendly - Edit

I would give no stars but sadly, as this place is vegetarian, happy cow won't allow me to - even though I'd rather visit an omni place than here again.

I've been in here twice and was told each time that 'everything is vegan' even after explaining to them the first time that dairy is not vegan. They seem to have no problem lying to their customers and are extremely pushy to make you buy things. I've come across other people in the veg community who have mentioned the same things... pushiness and serving vegans non vegan items. One person said they were vegan and lactose intolerant, ordered coconut milk and, after complaining of stomach cramps, was told their coconut milk was cow's milk with coconut flavouring!

The food was so bad I couldn't finish it, which never happens as I eat almost anything. It all tasted... sad.

Will NEVER be going back.

Pros: Good Location

Cons: Lying to customers, Bad food, Pushy sales

Wonderful! - Edit

I had the carrot cake which was wonderful! I look forward to trying more items. The cafe is nicely done up and just a short walk from the Broadway-City Hall skytrain.

Pros: lots of vegan options, nice atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff

In support of local veg cafes! - Edit

This is a 100% vegetarian coffee shop. No bacon here and in fact most of the baked goods were vegan on the days I visited. They have soup and sandwiches options, many cakes and sweet baked goods.
They also have huge boards of drinks.
I tried the hibiscus tea, I asked for it unsweetened and it was delicious. Have not tried food there yet. The owners were very knowledgeable about vegan food, and they are vegetarian themselves. This is a great addition to the coffee scene. I always prefer to support independent coffee shops but when they're veg, even better!

Somewhat misnamed - Edit

Not the type of cafe you would expect as "Heaven on Earth Cafe"; since it's more like a kind of a bald version of a Starbucks branch - at least in appearance.
However, at "Heaven on Earth" there is a much better range of vegan sweets and the overall attitude is much better as well - just to avoid misunderstandings.
Coffee and cake were good, nothing wrong with that, service was also very nice - if they would just arrange the interior decoration in a cosier fashion, that would make a big deal.

Pros: friendly service, notable range of vegan stuff, good WiFi connection

Cons: bland interior, nothing stands out

Great local café with excellent food and drinks - Edit

We've visited a couple of times and always enjoyed the sandwiches, soups, desserts, and coffee/teas. A large variety. Today I had the 'delish' wrap (vegan) with lentil soup and my lunch companion had a vegetarian sandwich (avocado, edamame and feta), soup, and masala chai tea. Very friendly couple who needs the veg community's support.
