Had a great lunch here, with excellent gluten-free vegan and just gluten-free options, as well as a pretty extensive mocktail menu. Had the berry mocktail that was amazing. We also ordered the cauliflower, which was fantastic, and the chicken skewers with hummus. It's bright and vaguely retro, which is fun. Service was knowledgeable, but a little slow at the busy lunch hour.

Just a note that it's a little hard to find -- the sign is tucked into the entrance overhang & not easy to see. Worth looking for it, though.

Absolutely delicious. I shared the Grilled Mezze Sampler with a friend but I could have had the whole thing to myself. Our server told me there's a dedicated allergy prep space in the kitchen and was super friendly and knowledgeable

I went here on my first night in Vancouver and it was an excellent choice! The food was incredible - they were great with understanding my gluten allergy, even made it easy for me to share a mezze platter with guests who could eat gluten. The falafel and hummus were so delicious!

Ordered the lamb hushwie plate multiple times and it was delicious! Have not had any reactions. Great for a quick healthy meal that you wouldn’t necessarily make at home. Lots of gluten free options and they will give you romaine lettuce or cucumbers to dip hummus.

Had a great experience! The waitress was knowledgeable about which dishes were safe for me. I am not celiac however, but severely intolerant. They provide salad leaves as a substitution for pita. Excellent food.

We ate here twice on the same vacation it was so good!! Very knowledgeable staff, felt safer eating here when it wasn’t as busy (3-4pm) due to the large flatbreads that were not GF.
