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.
