Traveling Vegan: Vancouver, B.C.

Traveling Vegan: Vancouver, BC
Photo Credit: Ashley -
Vancouver is beautiful! If you're looking for a place to visit that is as beautiful as it is fun, then you should scoot on over to Vancouver, B.C. Like right now. Between riding bikes around the sea wall, cliff walking at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and whale watching from nearby Steveston, Vancouver is a nature lover's paradise. So, it's a good thing that they also have great vegan food and a thriving vegan community! This was a time before I religiously took photos of my food so sadly, I have no photos to share of the fare I enjoyed. But that just gives me another reason to get back to Vancouver and update this post, right? Right?

Heirloom Vegetarian
1509 W. 12TH Ave.
Vancouver BC V6J 2E2
(604) 733-2231

Heirloom is a shinning gem in the vegan community of Vancouver. It's a vegetarian restaurant but like most vegetarian places, they have all of the vegan options clearly marked. It's a bright and airy space and the interior design seems to mimic forms in nature. We were there for bunch and we did not walk away disappointed. I can't wait to get back and try more of the delicious options from their vegan menu. 

The Wallflower 
2420 Main Street
Vancouver, BC
(604) 568-7554

The Wallflower couldn't be more different that Heirloom in terms of atmosphere. The Wallflower looks like it's a biker bar by night and a diner by day. It's very dark but has it's own kind of charm. BEWARE: The Wallflower is an omnivore establishment with a vegan menu. We had the mac and cheese and Shepard's pie, which were perfect comfort food. Though they serve meat and dairy, they have a large enough vegan menu that it's definitely worth checking out when you are in the area.
