Vegan in Vernon - Edit

Diverse options in bakery opening to lovely courtyard or at restaurant facing the street. Pricey but quality ingredients, nice variety, and inventive desserts.

10/10! - Edit

SO GOOD!!! So many vegan options and EVERYTHING is gluten free! It can be quite challenging to find both and they do it so well! Best bread EVER!! The bakery case was full of gf and vegan treats (cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, scones...) I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant and bakery. Amazing food, staff, service and aesthetic! New favorite place!

So good and amazing staff! - Edit

Love the food! My husband and I are both vegan and ordered a philly steak and shiitake teriyaki sandwich - vegan options. There was some confusion and the shiitake sandwich came with dairy cheese. The person who got us the food was really good about checking and making sure that the cheese was vegan. They re-did the sandwich for us with vegan cheese - I almost want to give them an extra star for making sure that our food was vegan which meant a lot. The staff is vegan too which helps with suggestions. I would definitely come back for the delicious food and the people :)

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff

Cons: Sugar overdose that you cannot resist :)

Best food, Ever!!! - Edit

What's not to like? Being a vegan and eating out has been, well impossible! I will not eat round up ready, GMO food. Finding a place that provided fresh healthy food is near impossible. Shambala has a great Variety of food to choose from. They have only just started. The full restaurant will be provide a larger selection, which I can't wait to try!!! This is a must do/go to place for those looking for really good, healthy/fresh food!!!

Pros: Fresh, Tasty, Variety

Cons: Not open 24/7, Not other locations yet!, Not located near where I live

Amazing Find!! - Edit

So glad we didn't miss this place while searching for lunch. It has two different store fronts, not sure what the difference is between the two. We went to the smaller one. While they are not completely vegan, the majority of their menu AND baked goods are (when we went, only one item in their display case of baked goods wasn't vegan!). We tried their burgers -- so tasty! They also have really good golden milk and cinnamon rolls. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a yummy place to eat at any time of the day!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Meat-free, Gluten-free

Cons: Small space for dining in

Yummy and Freindly - Edit

Stopped by once, and cannot wait to come back. Had their hash with their vegan nacho sauce (very good, and look forward to their nachos).

Everything is well labeled, staff is very friendly. And they will soon open a connected establishment with alcohol and much more indoor seating!

Gluten free pastries were all vegan at the time (but are not always vegan, which our server mentioned to us)-- but we would have preferred vegan gluten-full options!

Pros: Healthy, Tasty, Freindly

Amazing food and service! - Edit

I have visited this restaurant twice now and left extremely satisfied both times.
The first time I had the Shamburger and Vegan Nachos, both were out of this world. My picky teenager loved them too!
The second time I brought my husband and we tried the Italian pizza. That was the best pizza I have had since going vegan! They also sell the crust so you can make one at home, they also offer take & bake so all you have to do is throw it in the oven!
Don't even get me started in their bakery case! Most (if not all) are vegan and so decadent!

Pros: Great service, Lots of options , Vegan

Cons: Price is a tad high (but to be expected for vegan), The large restaurant is not up and running yet

Shambala veggie burger is fantastic! - Edit

If you're in town make sure to stop in for the veggie burger. You have specify that you want it to be all vegan and they will make it with vegan cheese.

The cook is a vegan as well and we had a good conversation.

The warm kale salad was very tasty and I recommend that to anyone, it's a mix between healthy and very tasty.

ALL of their baked good are vegan... like 15 items!

Pros: Excellent food, Vegan baked goods, Free Wifi

Cons: Not all vegan

New Vegetarian Restaurant Opens in - Edit

This little restaurant is just getting started, but has an impressive vegetarian and vegan menu. Almost everything can be made vegan, which is really nice for us vegans, especially up in this area where there aren't a lot of vegan options. I had the Italian "Meatball" Pizza with vegan cheese and it was tasty and filling, the crust was great, especially for gluten free. They have a full breakfast and lunch menu any time of the day which I will have to explore next time.

Pros: great food, lots of vegan options, full and varied menu

Cons: a bit pricey, small dining area
