First Review by Lee A

Enjoyable Vegan Lunch spot - Edit

I've visited this establishment twice now and have zero complaints. Service is friendly and efficient. Prices are fair and food is of an excellent quality. I would strongly recommend this place for lunch or a snack.

Pros: Great Flavours

Cons: Limited Menu

Tasty food, limited selection - Edit

Probably the most legitimately vegan and healthy option in Hamilton. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and pretty good food but the selection is pretty small... unless you call kale smoothies food... then the choices are endless!

What's better than their smoothies? Their food! - Edit

I've visited the GSB off and on since its arrival because they have a great storefront and location (just a short walk from the core downtown area) and they're always packed with fresh food that leaves you feeling pretty darn good about your body!

I've enjoyed their smoothies, but I'm the kind of person who will make tons of huge smoothies at home using frozen and fresh fruits and veg, so their portions are a little small for me, and none of the smoothies come with that refreshing chill you get from throwing a few frozen banana chunks in the blender back home. Still, they've got a wide range of tasty and enticing smoothie flavours, but what I REALLY love about GSB is their food menu.

The desserts LOOK small, but will leave you in a euphoric food coma. The same goes with their rice/noodle/veg bowls - it has some magical tofu in it, and flavours that I will never be able to duplicate at home. Whenever I end up at the GSB these days, I just head straight for the food!

As a con... sometimes the people working there just seem really grumpy/too busy to serve me, even if I'm the only person in the store? I don't want to be rude to the people who run this lovely establishment in any way, but if my social anxiety was any worse, the "attitude" of some of the employees would probably scare me into never coming back. They fit the stereotypical "I'm too good to deal with people like you" elitism. Which is weird, because I'll show up on a different day and be greeted by some of the nicest servers!

Pros: All Vegan Fare, Super Healthy (But Still Delicious), Open Most Days

Cons: Where's My Giant Smoothie?, Why Are You So Angry

Great atmosphere, good smoothies, awesome service. - Edit

Had a great first visit today. I had the chocolate cherry and the hubby had the Tanya. We couldn't decide what we wanted at first so the girl behind the counter took us through our options. She was very informative, extremely friendly and even gave my 1 year old daughter some dried cherries to keep her happy. The atmosphere is bright and happy. The stuffed broccoli included. The smoothies were yummy and my daughter loved the chocolate cherry flavour. Only comment is once again no baby change station. What is with all these vegan places I go to not having appropriate baby gear for customers. Vegans have kids too!!

Pros: great smoothies, great service

Cons: No baby change station

This new venue is growing steadily. It offers a wide variety of homemade smoothies, salads, vegan food and some other locally made products. It is definitely worth checking out.

Pros: excellent vegan food, comfortable, nice vibe, basement has yoga, other family events

They care... - Edit

This place has a good supply of super-foods to add to a smoothie. Great options. Happy it's organic. Expensive. They could get some more food options in. Their collard wraps are not as flavourful as one would hope based on their flavour titles. Very bland. Great space though and a refreshing vibe for James North. A good start to something that has potential to be great.

Pros: smoothie options and boosters, organic ingredients, atmosphere

Cons: expensive, bland collard wraps, could add more food options

Goes Down Easy - Edit

I was thrilled to take my family to Hamilton's first raw vegan smoothie bar tonight. My six year old daughter, who refuses to drink the green smoothies I make at home, ordered and happily devoured a pineapple-peach green smoothie and then promptly asked for another. I enjoyed a banana-peach smoothie which was creamier and less acidic than what I expected. The space is quite large, with several tables and is absolutely spotless, including the bathrooms. I look forward to trying more smoothies from the menu and hope they will soon add some food items to the menu.

Pros: healthy cuisine, all organic, raw, vegan, clean premises

Cons: limited menu
