Indigo Age Cafe

436 Richards Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 2Z3

Indigo’s food and drink options are organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free and diabetic friendly: it’s the ideal place for anyone with dietary restrictions or health-conscious preferences.

The Anchor Eatery

1520 Marine Drive, Vancouver, BC V7V 1H8

Bright, cheerful and ever-so-wholesome, The Anchor Eatery is a healthy choice for a snack or meal. Snacks range in size – and nourishment – from salads and breakfast bowls to energy balls and muffins. Customers can wash each nourishing mouthful down with a glass of kombucha. Available on tap, the tea is brewed by 05 Tea in nearby Kits.

Cultivate Tea

3623 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V 3N6

Cultivate Tea is a stunning, magical setting with plenty of wooden shelves, plants and tasteful aesthetics – not to mention rows of teas and tea accessories to purchase. Owners Jude and Lynn are extremely knowledgeable: think of them as the tea whisperers who guide each customer to their favourite brew. Don’t take their word for it; try one of the kombucha sampler trays with three varieties to find your preference.

O5 Tea Co

4
2208 4th Avenue W, Vancouver, BC V6K 1N8

Looking to become a kombucha connoisseur? Look no further than the exquisitely decorated O5 Tea in Kitsilano. Within the modern, wood-centric and relaxing environment, customers can choose from an extensive list of hot or cold tea. The kombucha menu includes four varieties made from scratch, ranging from smoky and dark to light and floral. Try a glass to find your favourite before sharing a pitcher with friends or even taking some home in cans or growlers.

Bestie

5
105 Pender St E, Vancouver, BC V6A 1T6

Who would have thought that currywurst and pretzels were good for your digestion? One of Chinatown’s favourite hangouts, Bestie is bucking the trend by offering delicious sausage, sauerkraut, pretzels, cheese fries and…kombucha, in the form of “a cute little can of sparkling fermented tea.”

Prado Café

6
100 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1G8

If a thirst-quenching nitro cold brew coffee, a cool and locally sourced pop, or a hot and expertly poured latte just wont do, chances are Prado’s on-tap Kombucha will hit the spot. Beautifully orange and full of fizzy goodness, it comes in two varieties – regular or hibiscus. You can even fill a growler for just $12 for take-home nourishment.

The Acorn Restaurant

7
3995 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V 3P3

Vegetarian restaurant The Acorn manages to combine hearty, healthy, locally sourced food with flavours that make you more than happy to eat your greens. Adding to the luxury-that’s-good-for-you atmosphere is their drinks menu, which includes Vancouver’s own Culture Craft Kombucha – a refreshing combination of blueberry and ginger in Darjeeling tea.

With its unparalleled views, nearby ocean and reflective glass skyscrapers, Vancouver really shines in summertime. When not on the beaches, much of the city sips a mojito or glass of the Okanagan’s finest on a patio. Here are some of the best summer staples and undiscovered spots for catching up on Vitamin D.
If Vancouver’s bar scene is too social or slick for your night-out requirements, these cozy nooks offer a relaxing alternative, and they’re the closest you can come to a true European pub experience on this side of the Atlantic. Check out these laid-back locals for a solo pint or a low-key get-together with friends. [Photo credit: iStock.com/gpointstudio]
Wheel around the alleys of East Van and it won’t be long before you stumble upon one of the city’s craft breweries: on par with yoga studios for their popularity. During Vancouver Craft Beer Week, you can sample more than 300+ different brews (and ciders) from around the world. Check out some of the Vancity breweries that’ll be pulling pints at the festival at the PNE from May 26 to June 4. [Photo via Doan's Craft Brewing]
