Healthy and consciousness are the best words to describe this botanical bar and vegan eatery in the heart of Yaletown. The focus here is on creating delicious vegetarian and vegan wraps, salads, tacos and other dishes along with good for you cocktails made with elixers and other botanicals without any alchohol.

Sit back in one of the comfy booths which is what I did and enjoy the Einstein ($8) with Carrots, Fresh Pineapple, Oranges, Ginger & Lions Mane which was my favourite of the two elixir cocktails that I tried, the other was the Garden of Eden ($8)  with Cucumber, Celery, Kale, Parsley, Lemon, Apple, and E3 Power On Algae.

I had the very good, Spiced Corn and Defried Bean Tacos ($14) with Guacamole, queso fresco, pico de gallo. I then had the Vegan “Cheese” Board ($14) which I loved with seed bread crackers, garlic and chilli almond cheese, cashew chèvre, sunflower dill cream cheese, apples, dried cranberries and dried cherries, spiced nuts. Next was the Spiced Carrot Cilantro Wrap ($18) Crisp chickpea patty, coconut roasted yam spread, raw queso fresco, cilantro chimichurri dressed slaw

 Seasonal Fruit Flan

For dessert they offer a couple of selections, I had the delicious and not too sweet, Seasonal Fruit Flan ($8) with an Almond crust, cashew cream, fresh fruit.

This is a great place to have a business meeting, gathering with friends after yoga or after work, enjoy live music on the weekends. I am looking forward to a return visit to try their breakfast offerings which is a new addition to the menu soon.
