And it was food you can feel good about...the book store had a phenomenal collection of titles and authors spanning the globe, with an earth friendly focus.

I am a food writer, so am discerning about food, and this place was top-notch. The food showed inspiration and technical expertise, transforming vegan ingredients into meals that felt rich and filling.

the person working there today was very rude. She seemed stressed out because it was a bit busy and was fairly snappy at customers. At one point she locked everyone out from the ordering area because she didn't want anyone in there while she tried to catch up. The customer service was terrible and it made me want to go... More

we noticed that this is the only review you have written, which leads us to believe that you were sent in to cause trouble and to show everyone how selfish, unempathetic and how without compassionate you really are. how shameful to criticize my talented partner who was doing her best to serve the lineup of customers with incredible food and...

Don't go there! Why own a bakery if you don't want to sell baked goods? I was waiting for the ferry at Fulford and needed bread, so I popped in to see what this bakery had. There were "Artisan" breads on a rack in the back of the store, and I could hear someone working further back. I said, "Hello"... More

i was present when you were in, our sign noted that we were short staffed that day...you were aggressively impatient and without compassion, manon was busy preparing food for other customers..be thoughtful, be compassionate, consider that the whole world doesn't necessarily revolve around you.

Wholesome approach to vegan cuisine. Very charming and homey atmosphere. Creative and inspiring. A great place to explore Conscious living in a very positive environment. Try the V'egg Panini, it is amazing! Love the Vegan cheeses and greens.

The only reason that I am not giving this cafe a terrible rating is that the food was actually decent. I am vegetarian (not vegan) and so I was excited to find a place with so many options for me. As soon as we walked in we felt like the place was a little unfriendly. Once we tried to place... More

We had planned to try this place based on food reviews, though I do see others have had "less than positive" interactions with the proprietor. However, the shocking, incredible rudeness of the (presumed) owners was truly something to behold! A stark contrast to the warm greetings and conversation we had at other places on Salt Spring. Will return to the... More
