The Level Lowdown: Best Vegetarian Spots in Vancouver

August 21, 2018

Whether it’s in the name of eating well or just your own personal preference, Vancouver has a whole slew of amazing vegan and vegetarian restaurants you won’t want to miss. From the city’s best açai bowl to the vegan equivalent of comfort food, scroll through to see our list of the top meat-free restaurants in Vancouver.





Vegans, vegetarians and meat-lovers all flock to this popular South Granville haunt on the regular. Known just as much for its drool-worthy brunch menu as well as its bright and airy Instagrammable space, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Heirloom. They recently opened a second location in West Vancouver, as well as Heirloom Juice Co., just up the street from their original location in South Granville.


The Acorn



This Main Street joint has a vegetable-forward menu that changes seasonally and is filled with freshest and most decadent ingredients. Serving up lunch and dinner, as well as brunch on the weekends, this cozy restaurant is the perfect spot for date night or a girls brunch. Another one where your non-vegetarian friends won’t mind trying, we promise.




Born out of a love for delivering energy and warmth through fresh and nourishing plant-based food, Kokomo has two locations in Chinatown and Kitsilano. From their signature “Kokomo Acai” bowl to the “Nood Beach” rice noodle bowl, you’ll feel extra healthy when you eat here.


Glory Juice Co



This juice bar has the biggest selection of killer Acai bowls, cold-pressed juices, organic nut and seed mylks, as well as other pharmacy and beauty goods. Hit reset on your health by trying out one of their juice cleanses (they deliver to your home or office, too!) or grab a quick Ginger Turmeric health shot when you’re on the go. Check out any of their five locations around Vancouver.


Nero Waffle Bar



Come for the waffles, stay for the fresh coffee. Whether you visit in the morning or evening, Nero is a sweet treat you won’t want to miss. Choose from a selection of savoury toppings like brie cheese with walnuts and honey or opt for something on the sweeter side, like vanilla ice cream with dark Belgian chocolate. Our mouths are already watering.





Whether you check out the Gastown or Main Street location, Meet is always a good spot to get your comfort food fix, vegan style. From the “Crispy BBQ Burger” to the “Butter Chikkin Poutine,” come here when you’re craving something a little more hardy.


Virtuous Pie



Since opening their doors in Chinatown back in 2016, this popular vegan pizzeria has been buzzing ever since. Their menu of plant-based pizza and ice cream is a sure hit, even amongst non-vegans. They also serve brunch on the weekends — don’t forget to order a Mimosa!
