Cuisine: Tea house
The Capilano Tea House and Botanical Soda Company is Indigenous-owned and plant-inspired. We infuse the traditional local with the traditional global for a very Vancouver offering.
Simultaneously fresh and ancient, our teas pair local foods like Juniper Berries and Nettles with global favourites including Rooibos and Green teas. Our delicious small-batch sodas mix florals with fruits: imagine lavender with ginger and rose petals with lemon for starters.
The Capilano is owned and operated by Michelle and Paisley Nahanee, a mother-daughter family from the Squamish Nation. We work with Chief Janice George to design and share foods inspired by the spirit of this land.
