For the Vegetarians

Because vegans are people too

I eat a lot of meat, but I also eat a lot of vegetables. Frankly, I just eat a lot. We’re lucky to be in a city that not only accepts and respects vegetarianism and veganism, but boasts a ton of great plant-driven restaurants that even omnivores and carnivores would enjoy. Average price between $25-50 a person.

Tried and True:

  1. Planta: This completely plant-based restaurant is the latest project from The Chase Group, led by Chef David Chang. It’s the best place to go for elevated vegetarian cuisine. 
  2. Hogtown Vegan: A fun place to go for Southern American food with a vegan spin like “Unchicken and Waffles”. 
  3. Fresh: All their locations are great, and there’s always something new to try.
  4. Kupfert & Kim: This meatless wheatless Financial District takeout spot now has a sit-down location at Spadina and is the perfect place to go after sweating it out at yoga.
  5. The Beet: This is a perfect spot in the Junction to chill out and veg down. 
  6. Doug’s Public Kitchen: Doug McNish is doing some interesting stuff. Go check it out. 
  7. Through Being Cool: It’s a vegan cafe that specializes in decadent vegan doughnuts. I mean…
  8. Hibiscus Cafe: a Kensington Market favourite cafe. 

On My Radar:

  1. Awai: A cutting-edge vegan restaurant I’m dying to try.
