The Juice Truck

28 5th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V5Y 1H5

The Juice Truck started out as a mobile truck serving up fresh fruit and vegetable-based juices to the denizens of downtown. They had so much success they opened a store on West 5th to bring their healthy liquids to more people. The bricks-and-mortar shop offers cold-pressed juice, smoothies, juice cleanses, and light vegetarian meals and snacks, like salad, natural energy bars and acai bowls.

Krokodile Pear

518 Davie St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2G4

Krokodile Pear likes to keep it local, and as such every juice is named after a B.C. destination. The shop makes their cold-pressed juices in small batches and keeps them on tap for quicker service. Additionally they sell smoothies, juice shots, nut milks, juice cleanses, and organic snacks at both their Davie Street and Kitsilano locations. For something a little different, try the toxin-absorbing Blackcomb juice made with lemon, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and activated charcoal.

The Essential Green juice (packed with kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, parsley apple, lemon and ginger is their bestseller.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
