Went here for dinner with a girlfriend as I had been wanting to go for some time, and she had been a few times and recommended it. We went fairly late in the evening so it was moderately busy. They have expanded as well so there is more seating now. The service was slow to start, but once we ordered,... More

With my son being a Vegan, we went to this restaurant to check out their Mexican Food. The tacos and enchiladas we ordered were wonderful. We really enjoyed the flavours and tastes. The service as well was friendly. The only downsides is that the way the seating of this restaurant is laid out, you are closely packed together and the... More

I am not a vegetarian, and certainly am not a vegan. I prefer meat with my Mexican food as do the majority of my family members. As a result, I was apprehensive about inviting my family (3 generations) to the Drive for dinner, but we all enjoyed ourselves. My aunt & mother prefer more traditional Asian establishments. However, we were... More

This family friendly Vegetarian restaurant/cafe opens from 9 am to 12 am. I was supposed to meet up with my friend around 9:30 am and looking for a cafe/restaurant so that we can eat brunch. I have ordered Brito from Brunch menu, and my friend ordered Benny. Instead of English muffin, they use Corn Bread. They serve HUGE volume! I... More

Love this place. We used to come more often but always hated the long lines. Now that they have expanded the place the wait was very minimal. Service was great and food was awesome! Love that they use corn bread for their eggs benny!!! One of our favorite brunch spots on the drive!

A great place to grab a bite with a couple friends, there's always a ton of vegan options and the food is always delicious. I've never had a bad experience. The vegan truffles are amazing too. Highly recommend you check it out.

Completely delicious. The food was fresh and tasty. I loved the fact that it was easy to make most options vegan. We had the vegan ice cream for dessert and it was by far the best vegan ice cream I've ever had. It tasted like the best, creamiest dairy ice cream. Highly recommend this place.

Bandidas is a hidden gem with fabulous fresh food and some unique twists. The non-meat menu hits the spot with cornbread bases for many of the offerings. Prices are very reasonable and everything we tried was delicious

We were on vacation for a few days in Vancouver and staying close by this place. We found it had great reviews on Trip Advisor and we are fans of Mexican food so thought we'd give it a try. The most important thing to know is that this is a vegetarian restaurant. We DID NOT know this! They do some... More
