After a long flight and even longer day of sightseeing I was exhausted and just wanted something really good to eat. There is something there for everyone. Even the dessert was safe to eat. The staff while busy were friendly and the wait wasn't long.

The service at this place is brilliant - a large vegan menu is on offer and staff are helpful in recommending and advising. The food arrived quickly and the serving sizes were very large, whilst quality was high. I wish this place existed in London.

While we got our food quickly and it was tasty the wait staff was beyond brutal. We never got asked how our meals were or if we wanted more coffee and our plates sat on our table while she chatted with the guy at the bar who we assumed was another staff member. We were only one of two tables... More

My companion wisely chose to order something off the brunch menu, a regular eggs and toast type breakfast. I ordered the vegan mac and cheese. It had a creamy dark yellow sauce, came with a fresh greens salad, and portion size was good. The vegan cheese did not taste very good - but I am not familiar enough with vegan... More

We live in the Okanagan where vegan food is not easily found. We loved this comfy diner in Vancouver. We ordered the poutine to start which was fine, but the Daiya cheese wasn't melted so it lacked there. The mains were fantastic. My husband had the baked mac and cheese and was grateful for a creamy, tasty cheese. I ordered... More

The Wallflower is a popular restaurant. It has a great, central location, the service has always, on my repeated visits, been friendly and good. The menu offers lots of vegan options, as other reviewers have noted. The food is fine, but not great. It's comfort food that gets about a C+. Also, the place needs a good clean - nothing... More

Tried this little Main Street spot out as my friend as gluten adverse and they have lots of options. Waited only 15 mins for a table on a Sunday at lunch, which is apparently better than the average wait. Service was on point for our meal, pal had chicken sandwich on their own GF bread and I had the burger... More

Food was fantastic, staff was friendly, and you could tell it was a place locals frequented. Ordered both meat and vegan dishes, with plenty of options for all members of the family. Would definitely recommend this place for good comfort food, variety, and nice atmosphere. Ordered the Vegan Poutine, baked eggplant, beef stroganoff And Turkey Melt.

went here for lunch as it had a diverse menu to speak to all foodie types. they don't publicize that they do vegan but half there menu is which in itself is a great accomplishment. Our server had long black stringy hair, unkempt look (which in my world presentation is everything) but very helpful with the menu descriptions and upon... More

This is an unassuming place but has really good food. In additional to non-restricted diet foods, they have a great selection including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free; everybody gets to eat unencumbered here. With the selection and quality of the food, it isn't surprising that it is busy. You might have to wait for a table so plan ahead. It's quite... More

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
