Vegan In Kamloops! Hello Toast

Pin It

On a recent trip to Sun Peaks, I spent a lovely morning in Kamloops starting with an intense yoga class at Bikram Kamloops, and ending with a rich vegan brownie at The Art We Are┬ácafe and gallery. In between the two was a delightful brunch at Hello Toast. At first, I did not know where to go, so I decided to follow my keen vegan instincts and look for the most obvious indication of a healthful whole food restaurant…dreadlocks! And ever since Bridget and I marvelled over the unique ‘Fine Thanks!’ cafe in Phuket Thailand in 2005, we’ve always been suckers for cute/weird restaurant names. It was a perfect fit.

Hello Toast offers a ‘natural burger’, which is assuredly animal-free, and they scored extra points by asking if I wanted soy or almond milk with my americano. So nice to have options. I settled on their Hippie Bowl for $11, a unique blend of raw veggies on top of fresh hot brown rice and topped with their special tahini dressing.

The mango and jicama with black beans and corn was a neat little mix and the dressing was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and artsy, and they offered a wide range of creative dishes. Although they do serve meat here, they were happy to make modifications to suit a vegan diet, and didn’t give me any ‘tude whatsoever.

Thanks Hello Toast! See you again soon.

  1. I first heard about Hello Toast on Canada Pages and have been wanting to try it out ever since. I love little cutesy vegan places like this. And the dreadlocked eye candy is never bad either. After reading your review I’ll definitely have to go check it out!
