Heart Clean Eats
Heart Clean Eats serves plant-based eats (including all-day breakfast) with options for protein add-ons, to cater to as many dietary preferences as possible.
The fast casual restaurant also partners with personal trainers and yoga instructors to offer PWYC programming in the park across the street.
The design of the space emphasizes transparency.
As many ingredients as possible are displayed clearly, and all dishes are made before your eyes, fresh to order.
Avocado toast ($8.95) is part of the all-day breakfast menu, topped with radish, sunflower sprouts, and a spicy seed mix that adds something different.
A veggie sandwich ($10.55) is layered with roasted red pepper, hummus, spinach, goat cheese, beets, red onion, and a house chili lemon tahini and chimichurri sauce on sliced grilled sourdough. All the vibrant colours in this sandwich add up to lots of filling nutrients.
The Southwest Burrito Wrap is one of a selection of hearty tortilla wraps ($10.55). Stuffed with romaine, pico de gallo, sweet potato, jalapeno, black beans, and dairy-free cheddar, a spicy chipotle lime aioli sets off the whole messy experience.
Power Bowls for $12.95 include a Mad Mexican Bowl with a foundation of rice, romaine and kale topped with pico de gallo, black beans, smashed avo, jalapeno, green onion and tortilla chips that could be smashed into a crunchy topping or used for scooping.
A house chipotle lime aioli and chimichurri add moisture and an extra kick.
A Middle East Bowl has a base of rice, romaine and spinach topped with roasted red pepper, hummus, beet, cucumber, tomato and red onion, accompanied by thick lemon chilli tahini dressing.
Signature buffalo chickpeas can be added to anything, and are used to create a don't-miss secret menu item: buffalo chickpea tacos. Thick tortillas are stuffed with heavily spiced chickpeas, cabbage and jalapeno for a crushable and satisfying plant-based snack.
Super Smoothies are $9.95, and include options like a peanut butter chocolate with peanut butter, chocolate chips, walnut, avocado, almond milk and maple syrup. They're a bit pricey but are filling enough to make for a fast breakfast-on-the-go.
There's also a Clean Greens option with spirulina, kale, spinach, hemp hearts, avocado, banana, coconut milk and maple syrup that looks a bit intimidating but actually tastes creamy and sweet.
Two wellness lattes are $4.95, and can be made with a variety of milk options from dairy to almond to coconut.
A turmeric option is caffeine-free and has a subtle earthy taste that isn't too strong, and a matcha option is smooth with a low dose of caffeine.
Heart Clean Eats also serves gluten-free beer, should you need more of a boost than a wellness latte can provide.
