4. the Naam restaurant
2724 West 4th Ave. (Kitsilano)
Open 24hrs/day, 7 days a week
My first ever vegetarian restaurant while I was in school. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that vegetarian burgers can taste incredible!
Their Tempeh Reuben…oh my…marinated tempeh with melted cheese, grilled mushrooms, mustard, sauerkraut & grated beets on a whole wheat burger bun. makes me salivate just thinking of it.
Plus they’re open 24 hours so when you’re craving a midnight meal.. it’s perfect!
5. Aphrodite’s Organic Cafe & Pie Shop
3598 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
(604) 738-5879 organiccafe.ca
Restaurant and pie shop. Their food is great and their pies are amazing. Even their vegan pies were outstanding. Everything was super tasty however I did find it a bit on the pricey side for a cafe.
A lot of these restaurants do use local organic ingredients and try to ensure as little ecological footprint as possible. Check it out.
