Alright Vancouver, with restaurant dining back open, it’s time to get serious about where we’re grabbin’ our next bite. ‘Cause after the hiatus we had, settling for just anything isn’t going to cut it. 

So we’ve teamed up with Flora, a plant-based alternative to butter, to bring you a list of six vegan-friendly restaurants in Vancouver to add to your summer dining bucket list. ‘Cause let’s face it, nothing says summer dining like some fresh, delicious dishes. 

Let’s get to it! 


You can’t have summer without gelato. So for those lookin’ to stay away from dairy (or anyone who likes delicious frozen goodness), Umaluma is a must hit spot. They pride themselves on carrying the widest selection of dairy free gelatos, and each one is just as creamy and tasty as the next. 

Where: 235 East Pender St


A mainstay since 2013, MeeT has more or less perfected the art of making delicious, approachable plant-based food. So, whether you’re craving a delicious noodle bowl or are just ready to dive into their stellar poutine, this is a spot that you can always count on to deliver.

The Acorn has more or less become the measuring stick for vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Vancouver. After all, it did nab the top spot in a global list of the best vegan-friendly restaurants in the world a couple of years back. Plus, they’ve just introduced a brand new curbside patio which makes this a top spot to check out during the summer months! 

Where: 3995 Main Street


Alright, while this may not be a fully vegan restaurant, we’d say it comes pretty dang close. Makin’ a stop in here anytime could get you a delicious vegan meal, but we’d extra recommend hitting ‘em up for brunch!
