At Indigo Food Cafe, vegan chef, café owner, and Ukrainian polyglot Lovena Galyide orients taste buds toward uncooked fruit, nut, and veggie dishes in an effort to jump-start the body's natural healing process. A high tea menu pairs organic, fair-trade teas with bite-size treats including collard rolls, kale chips, and berry cheesecake, and a dinner menu includes collard roll-ups and stuffed portabella burgers. Desserts range from healthy indulgences such as coconut cream pie or lemon goji bars that are also served at breakfast. Lovena also leads classes to help raw foodies bring her café’s nourishing dishes into their own kitchens. During intro classes or more focused sessions on desserts or beauty, Galyide unveils the health benefits and top-hat-decorating potential of figs, coconuts, nettles, and other vitamin-crammed superfoods as her students make and eat kale chips and almond milk and learn to use vital appliances from food processors to dehydrators.

The Vancouver Art Gallery boasts a permanent collection of more than 10,000 works and features the creations of well-known international and Canadian artists such as Emily Carr and Jeff Wall, alongside a rotating selection of travelling exhibitions. Currently, the gallery hosts the first and only drawing exhibit ever to travel from Paris's illustrious Musée d'Orsay, and the nearly 100-piece collection displays some of the finest 19th-century French art to creep over the borders of Gaul. Titled The Modern Woman, the exhibit features the work of Degas, Manet, Gauguin, and Renoir, among others, and addresses the artistic tides of the late 19th century as they began to migrate away from formal portraits and turned instead to snapshots of everyday life. On display through September 6, these ground-breaking artistic renderings reflect women's rapidly changing role in society at the time, with depictions of women wandering the streets in contemporary dress, casually dining in cafés, jogging on treadmills, and preening in the boudoir.
Momento Coffee House focuses on the subtleties of coffeemaking to offer quality brews to customers. The shop eschews boring coffee-pot technology to use equipment such as a French press and a La Marzocco FB/70 espresso machine, resulting in the sort of freshly brewed precision usually reserved for cyborgian baristas. Sample the grounded goods with a two-ounce cup of espresso ($2.75) or a 12-ounce cup of coffee ($2.50). Other drinkable delights include the Americano ($3), latte ($3.75), hot chocolate ($3), and loose-leaf tea ($3). Momento Coffee House also partners up with JagaSilk to serve maccha green tea ($4.50), available in latte ($6), iced-tea ($5.50), and mocha ($6.25) variations. Gluten-free and French-inspired goodies are available for snacking betwixt sips.
Conceived and opened by a team of mom entrepreneurs, Kokopelli Café whips up its daily house-made goodies and coffee creations in a stylish and family-friendly environment. The batter-covered confectioners at Kokopelli start baking at 5 a.m. each day to ensure customers' teeth meet little resistance against the moist, fresh-baked cakes. Your Groupon allows you to mix up to two flavours to create a well-balanced half dozen. The café offers six different takes on the cakes; you can choose from among the classic vanilla, chocolate, and coconut cakes or opt for a more adventurous twist on the delicacy. A frosty lemon cupcake makes cake from life's lemons, while the chocolate mint and Oreo-themed cupcakes do not.
The family-owned boutique offers an abundant selection of small-scale and artisan cheeses, charcuterie, and accompaniments in a quaint Kerrisdale fromagerie. Cheeses are hand-selected by the in-house experts, and the rotating selection of more than 150 varieties of cow, goat, and sheep's curds is thoroughly researched for history, flavour profiling, wine pairing, and favourite bands before hitting the cooler. Indulge in the creamy cow's milk Quebecoise Bleu Bénédictin ($5.95 per 100g), and savour the slightly mushroomy, slightly salty flavour of the deeply veined monk-made blue. Grab a block of the semi-hard sheep's milk pecorino Toscano and grate the fragrant fromage over your next pasta, cheesecake, or salad. For fromageophobes, Benton Brothers offers a bounty of locally made charcuterie and cheese accompaniments, to ensure all guests at your next cheese-themed soiree can sup stress-free.
