I thought we created great tasting healthy 'raw food' at home. This opinion has to be seriously revised having eaten at the Power House Living Foods restaurant today. The food was excellent. I had the Sweet Onion Wrap and my wife had the Taco Salad. Every mouthful was delicious and a pleasure. The owner Toni spent time answering our questions... More

Stopped in the downtown juice bar to check out a healthy alternative lunch. I decided to go with the pad thai salad and the "irresistible" mylkshake. First off I'd like to say the employees made me feel very welcome and we're extremely helpful for making me decide what to get. The shake was amazing and the salad was one of... More

First step into this place I was in love! The decor is so bright and fresh, and the staff was really friendly and helpful. I had the hawaiian bbq pizza and it was UNREAL. I thought the price was great for being a raw/organic store. Can't wait to go back!

I was absolutely shocked when it was all said and how outrageous the prices are. Not only highway robbery but service terrible. Rude, unfriendly and real snob attitude. Will not go again. First and last time.

We've stopped by here for juice a few times on our way through Nanaimo. The juice is great, the staff friendly and the place spotless. It's always been in the morning so we haven't tried their desserts but they look awesome. Next time!

I was pleasantly surprised to find this raw, vegan restaurant in Nanaimo. My boyfriend and I decided to have lunch there. I ordered the falafel wrap. Since the whole menu is gluten free, the wrap was made from dehydrated vegetables- unusual but very tasty. My boyfriend ordered the lasagne. We were slightly unsure how a raw lasagne would work but... More

I was looking for a healthier breakfast option than the family wanted and went with the kale, apple, lemon and ginger juice blend (can't remember what it is called). The place was packed and it took a bit to get my drink but it was great. I juice at home but it never comes out as well blended as the... More

Excellent fresh juices. Fantastic raw food! Good selection, decent portion sizes, and a reasonable price! Raw is always going to be on the expensive side, so that's just something to be prepared for at any raw food place. This place is less expensive than "Bliss" raw food cafe in Victoria. Awesome desserts also! Good service. Totally worth it.
