I was in the area for a dance convention/half marathon and I love vegan restaurants so I decided to try this place. This restaurant is located near the Alberta Arts district in Portland, which didn’t mean much to me, but it was near the area...More

Eclectic menu, decor and staff. Great menu options for vegetarians or vegans. Meat also available. Daily specials are the best. Fun drink menu too.

Vita is a vegan cafe... I'm not vegan. However, I've never had a bad meal yet. Have only been there on weekends and tend to order the "cooks special", created by Alex. Haven't had a bad one yet.

Buttery and huge. Really fulfilling for a pastry-lover like me. Most cafes on NE Alberta offer the same baked goods, but that pain au chocolat was unique to Vita Cafe...with a great ambience and friendly service, made my day.

We had a lovely breakfast here. I had the 2+2+2 with corn cakes and as the corncakes were so good, I ordered another separate serving of them. They truly serve comfort food here and even better that most of it is organic and local.

Holy cow, was this place good! I got the tempeh ruben and my friend got the lasagne - both of us starting with a corn muffin and a bowl of soup. We loved every bite. A low-key, completely unpretentious greasy spoon, with something for everyone,...More

I've been to Vita Cafe several times and always enjoyed myself. It's really nice to have a place with a good variety for non meat eaters. The Thai coconut soup is delicious. The people there are great also.
