Great smoothies but pricey

I needed (needed!!!) a veggie smoothie on the road and found this place by accident. I got a great smoothie but it was pretty outrageously expensive ($9 for a fairly small cup). I went back the next day anyways for another one but they weren't open until 10am, which was far too late unfortunately.

It was a nice, very basic place, serving tasty, healthy food. But sadly, it is now closed. TripAdvisor is asking me for 100 characters; but what more can I say? The place is closed!

Could find to much that I liked. Something was dripping on the table. They use to have more stuff I liked and served you. Hope they keep adding to the menu and keep the cost down.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a raw restaurant in this quaint little town. The food was great and the staff very personable. We enjoyed eating our meal outside and chatting with some of the local people who also dine there. 5 stars for us.

A terrific place with good food, great staff and lots of choice at a reasonable price. I had a raw pizza that was really tasty but there were lots of choices - I may have to go back!

Awesome for your health a bit pricey though. The food is however, great and is a nice treat from the usual restaurant fare.

What a pleasant surprise to find a cute little raw food restaurant in Qualicum Beach! The service was great and the food was equally good! I was pleasantly surprised... I never expected to find a raw food place here but there are a few gems in this sleepy little town. It's just down the street and around the corner from... More
