Are there even vegan options?

I was surprised to see no vegan options marked on the menus and when I asked, the worker seemed to contemplate what the word vegan even meant. She then went on to say the wraps were, but at that point I couldn’t be convinced so walked away empty handed.

Cons: Menu items not marked vegan, Staff not sure what vegan means

Makes missing the ferry worth it!

I was very excited to see this restaurant just steps from our car. Both my mom and I enjoyed delicious lunches. I thought the lentil wrap was great. I agree that it would be nice to have the menu clearly marked as what is vegan or not but it looked to me like they had many vegan options and the friendly service made it seem like they would be willing to help anyone. They have more choices for smoothie milks then I've ever seen 😁

No marked vegan options

To be fair, I did not actually eat here, so I cannot speak to actual food quality, hence two stars instead of one. But suffice it to say that not a single item on the menu was marked vegan. And contrary to what this listing description would lead you to believe, none of the baked goods are vegan. The menu had an assortment of items, but you’d have to inquire as to whether any of them were vegan.

Pros: Convenient for vegetarians waiting at the ferry

Cons: No listed vegan options

Maybe I got unlucky...

I visited the Good Karma Café on the way to Vancouver Island. It is conveniently located on the right side of the car line up at the BC Ferries terminal. A friend of mine said she had a good wrap there recently so since they advertised vegan options, I thought I should check it out.

The café needs to update their website! I had looked at their website and was salivating over the chocolate chia pudding. We were informed they stopped doing it 3 or so years ago. Same with the raw desserts, there were none in sight!
Then we enquired about the gluten free options, and they said they only do them in the summer. Like people don't want/need GF options in winter or spring?
The servers did not seem to know much about vegan options so we settled on a cup of tea.

I was super disappointed that the tea bag was made of plastic/nylon, which is not sustainable.

So with this in mind, I was wondering if I got unlucky on that day but I won't be rushing back next time I take the ferry.

It is a vegetarian café and the majority of customers are omnivores, but to have clearly labeled and more vegan options would be welcome.
