I recently stayed at the Vancouver Airport Hotel. My sister stayed over one night with me and the following morning we had breakfast in their restaurant.
I was thrilled to see they had a small "raw" section on the menu. I had the fruit bowl with coconut and almond milk. For a drink, I chose the hemp seed smoothie with fresh raspberries. My sister commented that my breakfast looked much better than hers. I also noticed a couple of guys sitting near us that were eating raw too.
I looked it up online and it seems they added these choices earlier this year at all their hotels.

I hope that they have enough foresight to put that on their own and the raw websites as it is useful information for travellers.
