Two Guys SushiWe know the first thing that comes to mind when you think “sushi” is “fish”. On the contrary, Two Guys offers a plethora of vegetarian Japanese food of the grilled and rolled variety! The menu at this joint offers many vegetarian rolls, noodle and fusion dishes. Give them a try next time you’re in town! (15169 Roper Avenue)

ZapotecaZapoteca has only been open since 2018, but they continue to impress diners with their menu “inspired by traditional methods of Oaxaca Mexico’s pre-columbian culture of Zapotec indigenous people” and straight-up tasty food. Try the Elote, fresh cooked corn on the cob topped with feta and sour cream, the Rajas Taco, which is a roasted poblano pepper mixed with onions and grains, or the enchiladas! (15495 Marine Drive)

Islands CaféThis cozy corner is a favourite among White Rock locals. Islands is famous for its fair trade Hawaiian coffee, delicious Açai bowls, smoothies, flatbreads and other tasty treats. The Açai bowls alone are worth the journey to White Rock. A tropical mixture of frozen Acai, Strawberry, Blueberries, and Banana blended into a sorbet texture, the bowls are traditionally topped with Granola, Bananas, Seasonal Berries, Coconut and drizzled Honey. If you’re looking for a vegan and veggie friendly lunch or breakfast spot, this place has got you covered! (1237 Johnston Road)
