My husband and I popped in here before catching the ferry back to Vancouver and I am so glad we did! I got the raw BBQ pizza and the raw Nanaimo Bar Cheesecake. The cheesecake was one of the best raw desserts i've ever had! For one who can not eat wheat, dairy, refined sugar, or corn, this place was... More

Stopped here for some fresh juice for myself and smoothies for the kids. Wow, the best smoothies they've ever had and delicious juice. Only downside is the price. Even more than I've ever paid in VAncouver for a similar juice/smoothie. I think the drinks were $7 each... so a little crazy. But all is freshly made and absolutely delicious and... More

I enjoyed my pad Thai salad and my shake. The food is very fresh and tasty. It comes at a very expensive price. It is as filling as a salad can be and is very healthy. I would eat here again.

Really good smoothies, but the deserts knocked my socks over! A bit pricey but really sparked my interest - no gluten, no dairy, no sugar but yummy! Very rich tasting

My friend is a master baker and wanted to cut out sugar. (Good Idea!) So in support I brought home a hazel nut coconut cream pie!! OMG!!! My friend said "what taste!" I said the hazel nut or the coconut? She said "BOTH!!!" She went on to comment "How can they make it taste so good? Make it so rich... More

If you like a fresh squeezed juice, this is the place to get it in Nanaimo. Also, try their raw pad Thai salad. You will be amazed that the 'noodles' are actually made of zucchini that has been spiralled out into a noodle shape. It will blow your mind that raw food could taste that good. The only drawback is... More

Love that they also make kale chips with difft flavours and yummy healthy cakes and pies. Mm! Mm! I had their hazelnut vegan pie and a slice would... More

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!
