DSC01172Attention all Kitchener/Waterloo residence, or anyone in The GTA with access to transportation. There’s a hidden gem in the heart of Waterloo, that needs to be discovered. Introducing Thrive Energy Lab. The name says it all. The food is creative, inventive and of course, all 100% vegan. Burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salad, acai and noodle bowls are a few of their offerings. They also make heavenly smoothies and lets not forget about the dessert, that is, if you have any room for it! Peanut butter cups and chocolate chia walnut cookies will have you coming back on the reg. The atmosphere is casual and fresh. The staff know their stuff and are ready to make any recommendations, if needed. I had the honor of meeting with the owner and founder of Thrive who believes in the “let food be thy medicine” moto and proves, through his creations, that his food is not only healing, but delicious. Now we’re talkin’!

The burger was so good that I grabbed another for later!


Now this a how a wrap should look… and taste! It was delicious. Note: they accommodate GF requests for most, if not all items.


SOUTHWEST burger. My fave!!


Made to order juices and “milk” were fabulous!


Peanut butter cup – peanut butter filling, mixed nut crust, raw cacao sauce & toasted peanuts.


Nice selection of juices available for on-the-go fuel.


Plenty of seating available for ones wanting to dine-in.
