Nutritious and delicious!

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

And they serve the best raw whole food items one could ask for. Great salads, drinks and raw food menu items as well as some scrumptious desserts.

Wow, everything was fabulous! Loved the Hawaiian BBQ Pizza and the Kelp Noodle Bowl. Service was also sublime. Don't forget to get a shake too!

Great vegetarian and vegan choices. The desserts are to die for. Smoothies and power drinks as well. Love this place, although it is a bit costly, the food is excellent.

Been here lots. Pizzas are good, falafel wrap good but too salty for my taste but still would order. Juices are good but mine are better :-) Too much froth. Please wear gloves after touching money and then my veggies! :-) Goodies are yummy. Only place where I know my tummy will be happy.

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.
