Caveman Café provision of food to PHS Community Services Society new COVID-19 housing space, The Lark Hostel at 103 East Hastings Street.
We have been working with Caveman Café throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to supply our residents with high quality, healthy meals. We find them incredibly responsive to our requests, especially in the understanding way they deal with last-minute order changes and individual dietary requirements. They deliver a range of food, from platters to individual portions, and it’s a pleasure to see our residents receiving delicious and nutritious meals on a regular basis.

Caveman Cafe has come through for me on numerous occasions. They are flexible with their timing and menu. Their prices can't be beat and there is never a shortage of food. For every lunch on our busy film sets I always hear from the cast and crew that they loved the food! Can't recommend Caveman Cafe Catering enough!

Many years ago I was addicted to drugs, alcohol, eating junk food, etc. & I was depressed & close to 'taking my life'. About 45 years ago I became clean & sober & made a commitment to being more conscious of eating healthy. I have since co-founded the Kindness Foundation of Canada; Founded & organized the World Kindness Concerts, became an internationally renowned speaker and author of eight books . . .
As you can see I have become very focused on kindness in all ways, but I've had a huge focus on eating well. I can't even tell you how excited I was when I saw, a few years ago, Caveman opening in Vancouver. I was there at the start & watched it grow & I was able to witness their commitment to, not only people's health, but to caring about the people's lives in our community. I've always been impressed by their prices, especially considering the quality of their food, & to the large portions their customers were given.
One of the beauties, too, for me was to see the variety of people who are attracted to Caveman...all ages, styles of dress, ethnic backgrounds, etc. - this is what community is all about! The warm, friendly greeting everyone received was such an added bonus!
I love the food at The Caveman Restaurant. I work in the area and when I am yearning for a healthy, tasty lunch, that's where I go. In this age of corporate franchises, it has the feel of family restaurant where the owners and staff try to learn your name. Once in a while, the manager encourages me to try a new dish and when I refuse, he occasionally offers it to me for free. When he learned that I worked at InFocus Film School, he offered me a discount and extended it to all the students. I'm rooting for this place during the pandemic because it has heart.

“A friend of mine showed me this hidden gem today and I was beyond pleased. Lots of vegan options, organic coffee, extremely courteous and friendly staff and large portions. Definitely will be back in the near future (read this week). Also shout out to Eliza for going extra mile for me and my coffee request!”

Recently started trying their desserts that are sugar, gluten & dairy free and they are awesome too!! It's definitely a once a week hit up for me being so close to my office!"

“It was the first time I went to this nice place and can't tell how much I loved food over there. The owner is such a nice and welcoming person. He made my special order himself which I felt very special and it really tasted like home! And because of my first time there he served us free drinks, very health ones! I loved the environment a lot also. It gives you pleasant feeling when you are having your meal. I am so blessed my friend took me there and highly recommend to everyone :)”

We are very pleased to introduce Caveman Cafe and the philosophical bedrock of our resolve to provide nutritious yet affordable food for each and every Earth citizen regardless of their circumstances. We started as a conversation between a chef and a personal trainer about the lack of wholesome healthy food at a good price point in Vancouver - food as medicine. This idea germinated into the location close to the Chinatown/DTES area where students, creatives, artists, homeless, and businessmen etc. all come together for a moment in their day to put nutrition into their bodies when they do not have the time luxury of cooking at home.
Our efforts to ensure inclusiveness from inception reflect the idea that the most disadvantaged of society will be served with exactly the same commitment as our customers. We burst with pride as well when we cater to the Progressive Housing Society in Burnaby, a women's shelter that provides a safe haven from abuse. They have recently asked us to expand catering to their second location one day a week to give their overworked kitchen staff a well-deserved break. For our neighbours, the street residents of the DTES, we are determined to give to them on a regular basis as an example of how we define ourselves. We make a conscious effort to reject 3rd party mediators in these endeavours. Our entire staff, through direct contribution, experiences the true spirit of gift economy that mirrors Nature's own processes.
