“Hmmm, mmmm good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

While visiting Lopez, I had heard about Vita's. Located in downtown Lopez Village, this deli wine bar brings some fabulous cooking to this restuarant starved community. Bright, colorful and filled with an astounding wine collection the atmosphere favors lingering.

I sampled the local lamb morrocan meatball on a stick with dellicous yoghurt mint sauce, a crab cake and a chicken satay stick all accompanied with red beets. Very flavorful, especially the lamb. While I wished I had the time to sit in their patio, my ferry ride backoned. Hmmm sitting in my car, I wish I had remembered to get a dessert.

Cheers

“Excellent food, the place for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

This place rocks; freshly made gourmet food & healthy. It has a nice little court yard or get it to go. I have ate all over town for lunch and if you want healthy; this is it! I had the thai chicken on a stick and a salad; very flavorful! If you don't like a microwave you may not like the hot dishes because that's the way they heat it up. They also have hot sandwiches via a sandwich press and they are awesome. If you want a great dinner; go to Bay Cafe', great lunch; right here!

“Best Island Take Out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

Our family has been to this local gourmet eatery many times and we have not had an off meal. The ladies at Vita's cook wonderful, fresh, local organic[in season] foods that will tantilize your tastebuds. Except for the meat/dairy proteins, most everything is made from scratch using as much, fresh, local and organic ingredients as possible. If you are vegetarian- Vitas will surprise and delight you. While their items are not cheap, you get what you pay for and the difference in taste and quality is noticeable. They also sell a small selection of fresh baked items are equally as good as their savoury items. I had an amazing fresh blueberry custard tart- just local berries, flour, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla- been waiting for another but they won't make it unless they get those fresh blueberries!

“Best gourmet take-out anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2009

I love to go to Vita's when I arrive on island for a few days. I pick up some wonderful morsels to take to the house for dinner and lunch, especially when my "personal chef " is out of town. You can also order lunch and eat it right there at the counter or out on the picnic table in front. Really incredible fresh food using local and mostly organic ingredients. They also have a nice collection of specially selected wines if you're looking for something different that's not available at the local grocery store.
