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. They have also opened Planta Burger now.
  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. 
  9. Sabai Sabai: They are not a vegetarian restaurant, but they take care of their vegetarians very well and have a separate vegan menu.

On My Radar:

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