The rest of my family had already been and loved it, and now it was my turn. First impression: a bright and airy room (very different from the old, dark Primo's that used to be here), but very noisy. We were there at noon on a Sunday so it was understandably busy. Fortunately, we were seated after a short wait.... More

There is no denying that the food is incredible at Heirloom, however the prices are simply too high for what it is. Vegetarian fare should not be priced according to its meat counterparts.

Our meals were good but I couldn't stomach the prices. $20 for a rice bowl is pushing my upper limit.

If I had to describe Heirloom in a single word, that word would be "meh." I wanted to love it, but just couldn’t. In the glass-half-full department, our server was friendly and capable. The room was bright and pretty. And there's a reasonable selection of wines by the glass. But when it comes to the overall dining experience, my glass... More

I was shocked at how good the food was- with a big group so had the opportunity to taste many dishes... Amazing! The veggie burger... Royale with cheese, best burger I have ever had in my life! Waitress was awesome too.

Vancouver has so much good food. The options for those of us who have dietary allergies (I am celiac, aka gluten-free) is expanding slowly for a big city, but surely. So why does something as fundamental as simple fresh vegetarian lag so far behind? If you are a decent cook, you can cook better than this at home -- while... More

Impressed with the taste and texture of the vegetarian burger and the side salad tasted good too. Only the yam fries are a bit burnt. The waitress was great. The restaurant decor is simple. We were immediately seated despite it was Saturday evening.

As good of a burger as I've ever had. Tacos are fantastic as well. The best is leaving this place you always feel good as you haven't driven a bunch of garbage into your guts. Must visit !

Great place. Food delicious and fairly priced. Banana French toast was divine! Nice atmosphere. Place has a really nice vibe about it. I loved it. Will return and recommend to everyone - including non vegetarians.

Neighbourhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
