I love the healthy smoothies & mylkshakes at Power House! They are delicious and make my body feel good. The rest of the menu is just as amazing. This is my favourite place for raw, vegan, gluten free and dairy free food.

I had the falafel wrap and a green smoothie from here and both were delicious! So fresh, healthy, and tasty. The girls working were super nice and knowledgeable about the menu - we also got to taste samples of other smoothies offered. Definitely recommend!!

We had the Spicy Thai Salad with seaweed noodles, and wow, I was surprised how delicious it was. We do not normally go to raw foods type of places, just once in a while. I didn't try anything else, but the place seems popular as it was busy. The person that owned the place offered us a taste sample, which... More

I love raw food, you can just feel the goodness being absorbed by your body! The pad thai I wanted was almost finished so they gave me a free sample. It took quite a while for the food to be ready but it was worth it. Olive tapenade pizza and spicy kelp noodle salad were very yummy. Next time though,... More

Love this tiny place with integrity and passion in delivering up a great healthy live drink. I had a carrot, apple and ginger delight. Bought somem Kale dried chips with nutritional yeast and healthy spices. I was inspired to bake my own when I arrived back home in Alberta.

There is a blonde that has served me twice now on both of my visits to Nanaimo. She is helpful and friendly. However the location up by the mall, I had a brunette... More

Had the most amazing vegan pizza here! Beware, portions are modest! But not a bad price considering the average price of restaurants I. The area and the fact that it's vegan food

A great selection of smoothies and juices. Beautiful decor and friendly staff. The Pad Thai is excellent; one of a kind. Powerhouse is up there with raw food restaurants/cafes in NYC.
