Your body and soul will be nourished with Shanti’s delicious and nutritious meals. With the utmost love and respect for animals and the earth, vegetarian meals are served. We strive to use locally grown Wolfe Island organic produce whenever possible.

Journey into the world of vegetarian food with culinary delights that will leave you totally satisfied. All meals, prepared and served with mindfulness, are a feast for the eyes and a delight to your taste buds.

Organic, shade grown, dark roast coffee is served in the morning and a variety of herbal, green and black teas are available throughout the day.
