Until I tried the Green Cuisine amazake, I had never drank amazake before. I was quickly tantalized by the creamy texture and sweet taste. Amazake is very interesting, I learned, not only because it has quite a history of cultivation, but like tempeh, it is another fermented food. What is Amazake? Amazake has a long history […]
Tempeh There is a little inexpensive cookbook entitled “Green Cuisine’s Great Little Tempeh Cookbook” at the restaurant counter, written by Green Cuisine’s owner, Andy.

Suprisingly light white and dark chocolate mousses swirled over a gluten free chocolate cake.
The natural sweetness of Red Kabocha Squash, blended with a touch of lime juice, Thai spices and creamy coconut milk. Not too spicy!
Loads of leeks and potatoes slow cooked to bring out their subtle flavours.

Not a vegan or a vegetarian, but I enjoy nearly every local restaurant, and this one is no exception. Great place for lunch, buffet style eatery which is great for taking what you need without wasting much/anything. Good noodles, soup and salad. Very good if you're just simply looking for a light meal and you're not vegan/veg.

Used to be a vegan/vegetarian years ago. Finding this place by accident when my grandma wanted to get coffee. Assortment of food looked great, had a rasberry "cheesecake." Will go back again with my mom who enjoys vegan cooking. Lots of space too, like 2 different areas for tables, and outdoor tables.

YUM!!! We come have lunch here while working downtown often. It's affordable, delicious and there's so much thought and education put into every dish. Almost everything is gluten free, they use very little soy and their deserts are INCREDIBLE! Thank you for providing a healthy and delicious place to eat in Victoria :)
