This post is about the best vegan restaurants in Vancouver even though I spend most of my time in Toronto and exploring the vegan scene there. But I do love to travel and have been to Vancouver several times.
Here is our list of the Top 7:
Our top choice for best vegan restaurant in Vancouver is is Good Dogs and they are excellent. And they are more than just dogs, which they have a ton to choose from. But they also have salads, fries, brunch on the weekends and a happy hour.
The atmosphere/decor is pleasant and what’s nice is that they put an emphasis on house-made pickled and fermented veggies, made-from-scratch sauces, and dressings on the menu.
Have a special event? You can book their food truck!
The owners also state that they try to connect with local organic farmers and operate their business with a no-waste, sustainable policy.
Coming in at number 2 is The Vegan House offers Vietnamese cuisine and their menu includes classic green papaya salad, pad thai, caramel spare ribs, cha ca Hanoi, lemon grass chicken tofu bowl, veggie rolls, beef pho, and more. They also have very reasonable prices.
Bonus Bakery is known for their amazing stuffed cookies, pizza pretzels, waffles, almond croissants, cinnamon buns and more. They make everything from scratch and also offer 6 packs and 4 packs of their baked goods.
Cofu Vegan Restaurant is a delightful haven for plant-based food lovers. With a warm ambiance and attentive staff, it offers a diverse menu that caters to both vegans and non-vegans.
Their signature “Cofu Power Bowl” stands out as a delicious combination of quinoa, roasted vegetables, and marinated tofu, topped with a flavorful avocado dressing. The “Miso Glazed Eggplant” appetizer surprises with its burst of flavors and comes accompanied by crispy kale chips.
To end on a sweet note, the “Vegan Chocolate Fudge Cake” proves to be a rich and decadent dessert made with ethical ingredients. For those looking to explore the vibrant vegan culinary scene in Vancouver, Cofu Vegan Restaurant is a must-visit destination.
Folke is another one of the top vegan restaurants Vancouver boasts and their dishes are made for sharing (they recommend 5-6 dishes for 2 people). There is also a tasting menu ($75 pp) in which they select smaller portions of ~7 courses (including dessert).
Some of the dishes include Chickpea Tofu, mushroom dumplings, sunflower risotto, and a mix of greens and satiating vegetables.
Their menu is ever-changing and comprised of small plates designed with the “sharing is caring” mentality. In other words, no two meals at Folke will ever be the same.
Kokomo – Vegan Restaurants Vancouver
With three locations in the city, Kokomo is a significant influence in the Vancouver vegan scene.
Kokomo offers fresh, nourishing, plant-based bowls and smoothies in a sun-filled space.
According to their website, they are inspired by the sun – the ultimate source of life – and are on a pursuit to bring the energy and warmth of summer to your daily life through their food and atmosphere.
Their menu includes a variety of plant-based bowls such as Coastal Bowl, Coastal Macro Bowl, All Day Breaky Macro Bowl, and Flower Child Salad. They also offer smoothies such as Coco Whip and Acai Bowl.
And that’s it. Let us know what you think of our choices in the comments.
