Slickity Jim’s Chat and Chew

Probably one of the hippest breakfast joints in Vancouver, Slickity Jim’s (3475 Main St, Vancouver) is guaranteed to have a lineup more often than not, unless you are like me that goes our for breakfast on a tuesday. I have never tried one of their regular breakfast items but I have now tried both their…

The Charlatan

The first page on the menu of this Commercial Drive bar/restaurant, The Charlatan, ( 1447 Commercial Dr, Vancouver) is dedicated to herbivores. On it there is a long list of vegan and vegetarian options, most of which can be modified to be vegan. Today I tried the mushroom tacos without the crema (cream) and they were…

Yaletown Distillery Bar + Kitchen

I had some time to kill in Yaletown the other day and I decided to go sit with a new book for a glass of wine and the hope of dinner at the Distillery (1131 Mainland St, Vancouver). The rain was heavy, the skies were dark, the leaves of trees were falling…the patio had heaters,…

The Whip

The Whip’s (209 6th Avenue East) Vegan Tofu Scrambler is one of my favorite vegan brunch dishes in Vancouver in part due to it’s originality. The tofu is scrambled with lots of sauteed onions, mushrooms, and roasted tomatoes, making it quite hearty and saucy. The hash browns are good as well and combine perfectly with…

Darby’s Public House

Recently I have been re-introduced to Darby’s by the fact that someone close to me lives next door to it. I have to say that I am quite impressed by the new and improved menu. Not only do they have gluten free and vegetarian options but on the menu itself it says: “ask for our…

The Wallflower Modern Diner

I will probably post about the Wallflower (2420 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5T 3H9) many more times on this blog for it’s variety of vegan options and the fact that I live so close to it. I figured I would start by posting a rare vegan breakfast option, Vegan “Eggs” Bennedict, I mean really, how…

Provence Marinaside

The Marinaside of Yaletown, although still maintaining the fancy/upscale feel of Yaletown, looks and feels more like you are vacationing somewhere in Europe. It is there that you will find the Provence Marinaside Restaurant (1177 Marinaside Crescent). Although the feel of this place is upscale, they offer great food at a decent price. The restaurant’s…

Earls

I think it is important to mention when one of Vancouver’s major chain restaurants now offers the option to veganize a number of items on it’s menu. I find that chain restaurants like Earls, Cactus Club, Joey’s, etc have the least amount of vegan options on their menu, which is why it was a pleasant…

Fable Diner

Fable Diner (151e E Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5T 1W1) is a sister restaurant to the higher end version of Fable Kitchen (1944 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1M7). Fable Diner was opened in East Van as a more casual, modern, and hipster joint that accommodates the population of East Vancouver.  The menu is heavily…

Sunshine Diner

The Sunshine Diner is locate in the heart of Kitsilano (2649 West Broadway). The theme of the diner is 1950’s/ 1960’s. Everywhere you look there is imagery and paraphernalia from that era, with a specific focus on Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. The Sunshine Diner is most famously known for their in house made hollandaise…
