Delicious

I have been here three times. I come every time I visit the island. First I'll start with service. The location down town, the service is good! There is a blonde that has served me twice now on both of my visits to Nanaimo. She is helpful and friendly. However the location up by the mall, I had a... read more

Had the most amazing vegan pizza here! Beware, portions are modest! But not a bad price considering the average price of restaurants I. The area and the fact that it's vegan food

A great selection of smoothies and juices. Beautiful decor and friendly staff. The Pad Thai is excellent; one of a kind. Powerhouse is up there with raw food restaurants/cafes in NYC.

We had an excellent raw felafel wrap, kelp salad, a desert and a power juice. the host kindly gave us extra juice that came out of the blender. She was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

This is one of my weekday staples. I've tried most of the smoothies/juices on the menu. They are all delicious, but I prefer some over others. The Energizer, Pure Energy, and the Cloud 9 are my personal favourites. Also am a huge fan of their Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake. It tastes better than actual cheesecake, which is an accomplishment in itself.... More

We stopped by looking for a juice while trying to decide where to eat before catching the ferry. The juices were fabulous and then we got chatting about the dehydrated kale! We had an enlightening and fun conversation about raw food which saw us leaving with some delicious nacho flavour kale and a book on raw catering thrown in out... More

Who knew food without gluten, eggs, dairy and refined sugar could taste so good? Amazing variety, and the cakes are absolutely mouth watering. If you're passionate about healthy food this is the place to go!

This place is so good. I am not a vegan or a raw foodist, but I eat there because the food is delicious. The Olive Tapenade "pizza" is a favourite and I'm addicted to their smoothies. I usually go to the North Nanaimo location by Island Natural.

When I visit Nanaimo I always try to stop in at Power House since wandering in to the Commercial location last year. I have food allergies that exclude egg and dairy from my diet entirely, so finding an establishment that serves vegan desserts and shakes is a treat on its own! The staff have been friendly and attentive on each... More
