Go at the wrong time, and it's packed. The entryway is one of the most awkward in the city - two doors that end up blocked by people waiting for a table. And waiting for a table can mean standing in the line that ends up snaking outside. I love the homey comfort food, though. Can't really go wrong with something like the gold bowl - potatoes slathered with cheese (dairy or vegan) and gravy and topped with salad!

The best place to get decent, healthy'ish food at odds time in the night (ex. after a night out drinking). They're open 24 hours and service solid vegetarian food, both in terms of taste and volume. I really enjoy their Buddha bowls. Their blueberry shakes are solid as well, though a bit pricey.

This place has a personality. I felt like I stepped into an older decade. Piles of magazines and newspaper welcome you at the entrance. It looks like a place that appreciates Art lovers and Art. Interesting decor. The food is absolutely amazing. Came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Peculiar place, not the usual interiors you would find in a cafe setting.
Tried the home made Wheat pancakes - a healthy choice. The potatoes were nicely baked.

The food here is amazing. Most of it. It's good.
I don't rave about it as hard as some others.
There's a certain atmosphere and mood to be in when going to the Naam.
1. Come with the intention to talk or enjoy the vibe.
If you're looking to eat right away, it might be the wrong spot.
I've been sat to eat and been served in 15 minutes.
Other times I've waited for a server for almost an hour and another hour for the food to get to the table.
Either be more assertive with the waiting staff or be with company who doesn't mind the wait.
I've had long pleasurable midnight hang-outs.
2. Breakfast. Whatever time of the day it is. Come with the idea you can fall back on breakfast. I love it. Some of their other items feel like a pile of thinly sliced veggies with little effort or heart, but breakfast is like pow!
I like the Naam.
I want to love it, but I can't do it more than once a month.

Excellent food, service, and environment. Quickly became a top favorite place. It has the old school Vancouver feel in the air like how Vancouver used to be.
Good music and good vibes. Super healthy vegetarian and vegan food 🤩
