Although it’s always great to see animal-friendly options at vegetarian and omnivore restaurants and shops, nothing beats setting foot in a fully vegan joint. Thankfully, Vancouver and its suburbs are home to a growing number of such places.

For locals and travellers, we’ve compiled an up-to-date list of 100-percent vegan restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, and shops in Metro Vancouver. You’ll find them organized by municipality and ordered alphabetically.

If you are planning to start a vegan business, or spot any errors or omissions in this list, please contact us. For the latest scoop, you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

  1. Could you recommend a veg friendly place in or around Vancouver with a private function area for a party of about 30? Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. Depending on your budget, the restaurants at the Fairmont Hotels and also the Yew @ Four Seasons all have separate vegan menus, limited choices but great food. Not sure what they are like for large groups.

    Have you taken a look at cravings? They have aveg-friendly menu and do groups: http://www.cravings.ca/

    Looks like Chau Veggie also does private bookings: http://www.chowatchau.ca

    Good luck

    • Wow, congrats on the big move! I tried Field Roast for the first time at the Vegan Holiday Festival (I think maybe Vegfest?) and have been a fan ever since. The Celebration Roast is my rfoavite. I never liked real meat, and your product is the only one that has enough real flavor to make it a food on it’s own, not something fake. I’m not ready for the sausages yet (they look too meaty, I know I’m crazy!), but I love love love the roasts! Keep up the great work

  3. First Very Great Post, one quick note that is Afternoon Tea, not High Tea. Afternoon Tea is the fancy one we think of with lace and dainty food, etc. High Tea is more of a meal.

  4. So glad I came across this site! I recently came back to Vancouver from Hong Kong and have changed from my vegetarian diet to a vegan/raw food diet. As I am a foodie,this is very helpful indeed! Keep it up !
