“It messed with my head”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

On a hike on the Tunnel Mountain Trail we met some very friendly people who recommended Nourish as a place to eat...we were encouraged to try the 'Nachos'.
Nourish is an interesting and eclectic mix of vegetarian, vegan, raw food and cocktail bar.
We had some very interesting meals including the nachos that included the traditional corn chips, salsa and beans, but also strawberries, mandarins and a strawberry sauce....very interesting and messed with my head....great place to eat and challenge your senses.

“Lots of veg and vegan choices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

staff was nice, had really good specialty caesars (I had a cilantro caesar and my husband had a beet juice caesar, both very good)
We enjoyed some vegan nachos and a great sandwich. Would definitely go back

“Great Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The four of us really liked sharing the platters, which came out one at a time. Great way to experience the menu. Care is taken with combination of flavours and presentation. Loved the noodles, the curry special, not so much. Liked the atmosphere and the service was good too. We left happy!

“Nachos highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Good vegetarian food can be difficult to come by, but this café has a refreshing concept and a relaxed atmosphere. The menu is set up around sharing dishes and as they don't keep their dishes heated under lights, the meals are brought out as soon as they are prepared. The nachos are incredible; we were looking at the menu outside and walked in on the recommendation of a local. Friendly staff and good service.

The tables are very close together so I'd recommend more for an informal meal with friends, rather than a romantic dinner.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We decided to check out Nourish on a recent trip to Banff and were really looking forward to a vegetarian/gluten free dinner. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic! We had the "chef's soup", "Awesome Slaw" and the "Mac and Squeeze" and were really pleased with all three. The Tapas style menu that encourages guests to share all the menu options was also a refreshing twist from the norm.
The staff were really friendly, especially our hostess. She was awesome, friendly, knowledgeable, and checked in with us throughout the evening. Our server was also very nice.
The food was very fast but one issue was that our drinks didn't arrive until our 3rd course- hopefully that was a one off. We also felt the cheesecake, while delicious was overpriced- fairly small portion for $12.
