One of Main Street’s vegan eateries just announced it has closed up shop.

Soil operated at 2408 Main Street, which happened to be located right beside sister shop Blue Heron Creamery, Vancouver’s first-ever vegan cheese shop.

Open since fall 2018, Soil served patrons vegan brunch and lunch in its 24-seat space.

The address was previously occupied by Friendly Snackbar, which quietly shuttered last year too.

The Soil team made the officially announcement yesterday, explaining the decision and mentioned that they are still aiming to do future events and pop-ups.

That’s a wrap. Our last service is complete.

This iteration of SOIL was shorter lived than hoped or intended, but everything we did here was from a deep place of care and a desire to create food and a space around a set of principles broader than what is typical of many restaurants.

Read the full statement here and stay tuned for future Soil news.
