The Naam Restaurant is Vancouver’s premier vegetarian restaurant. Begun as a small café in 1968, it has grown into a full service 24/7 Kitsilano landmark. We consistently win Reader’s Choice “Best Vegetarian” year after year in most major magazines and newspapers. Also voted “Best Late Night” restaurant, the Naam often is runner-up for “Best Salads” against the highest-end restaurants in the city.

The menu is extensive. Starters include quesadillas, Tuscan nachos, organic hand-cut Yukon Gold fries with our famous miso gravy; or excellent salads, soups, and croissant melts with guacamole and cheese. For mains, there is a selection of enchiladas, stir-fries, veggie burgers and combination platters. The vegan Dragon Bowls are hugely popular as is our Thai Noodles. There is a full dessert menu: try the vegan raspberry chocolate cake or the Dutch apple-cranberry pie topped with Mario’s premium Italian Ice cream.

There is also a range of delicious shakes, fresh juices, our own line of herbal teas, and of course organic coffees. We serve wine, and a good selection of bottled beers and beer on tap including organic Crannog draft.

There is a full breakfast menu: pancakes with real maple syrup, huge fruit crepes with organic blueberry topping. omelettes, breakfast specials, and a wide variety of egg and vegan scrambled tofu options. We have the best vegetarian sausages in town. Breakfast is served from 6 am every day, until 11:30 am on weekdays, 1 pm on Saturdays and 2 pm on Sundays.

We have a lovely open-air garden patio, a fireplace in winter, and live music every night from 7-10pm.
