I love how many vegan restaurants Toronto has now and it seems that every few months there is a new one!
I really think Toronto is one of the best places to be vegan in the world and I love how many vegan restaurants there are now.
I made this list because, well, no one else has! I’ve always been interested in knowing how many 100% plant-based restaurants there are in the 6ix so I thought why don’t I just do it?
I’ve included bakeries in this list even though are they technically restaurants?
Anyways, all of the places on the list are COMPLETELY vegan. Isn’t it nice to order food knowing you can choose anything on the menu??
The downside of making this a stipulation for my list is that there are a lot, A LOT, of places I had to leave out. These include places that have a vegan menu but are located in the same restaurant as one that serves animal products. This was a tough decision but ultimately I think it’s fair. Also, maybe one day those places will go completely vegan, and then I can add them.
It really pains me though because of this Fat Choi and Gia/Stefanos aren’t on here but they are both on my favourites list so check them out also. This also means that a lot of vegetarian places are left out.
The last thing to cover before we get into the list is what do I mean by Toronto. I’ve basically set the boundaries of Steeles to the North, Rouge River to the East, and Etobicoke Creek to the West.
I did a lot of research for this list but I may have missed some places. If I did be sure to leave a comment 🙂

All of the Vegan Restaurants Toronto:
100 Broadview Ave. – Unit 202
4.8⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 66 Google reviews – $
ALK is located on Broadview near Queen and their website states “…[they are] Bringing You Affordable Healthy Vegan Options”. They also aim to not make people feel pressured into not eating meat but rather they want to offer healthy and tasty alternatives. Their menu includes soups, sandwiches/wraps, bowls, croissants, and drinks. I have yet to try this place yet but it has been on my list so I will be soon! I am eying their Shitake Gyro and Lox Croissant.

Avelo – Vegan Restaurants Toronto
51 St Nicholas St.
4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 401 Google reviews – $$$
Do you remember Awai on Bloor West? Well, Avelo is from the same team! I still remember my first time dining at Awai and it was an amazing experience. It was the first time I experienced phenomenal vegan food and realized that we don’t have to give up on taste or fine dining being plant-based. Their new location it much cozier and more central. They offer a similar type of menu as before, that being you either choose the 5 courses ($75/person Fri-Sat, or $65 Wed-Thu) or 8 courses ($110/person) and you only know what is being served when it arrives at your table. I personally love this experience and not knowing what I’ll be eating until it lands at my table. I’ve never had a bad dish at Awai and Avelo and I highly recommend this vegan restaurant.
They are open for dinner, Wednesday through Saturday from 5:00 pm. Last seating is at 9:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 8:30 pm on other days. They offer dietary alternatives such as gluten-free but require a 48 notice.
816 Dundas St. W. – 4.9 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 127 Google reviews – $
Bad Attitude Bread is a plant-based bakery headed by baker Logan Dunn. The bakery is named as a homage to his parents who always told him off for his bad attitude. The bakery sold out of its entire inventory in just two and a half hours on its first day and some of their popular items include brioche cinnamon swirls, cheddar “bay biscuits,” double-baked buttered bagel buns, and something Dunn calls “menage a trois” bun-sampler pack. They also offer Sesame “Honey” Cookies ($3.50) which are easy crowd-pleasers and Cherry Cheesecake Braid ($6.50) which is a tangy hearty treat. For now, the coffee option is a pour-over ($3.50) using Habit Coffee beans- another small business Dunn wants to support. You can also find Bad Attitude at First and Last Coffee and Trinity Market
Bloomers make amazing vegan donuts handcrafted every day at their family-owned business. They also make really good bagels and sell ice cream. They have been around since 2014 and I can still remember the first time I tried one of their doughnuts, it was that good. Be sure to check them out at one of their two locations. They offer a really large selection of donuts (but rotate them daily) and have seasonal ones on top of this. They also offer catering for larger events and weddings.
Buddhas Vegan Restaurant
666 Dundas St W.
4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 799 Google reviews – $
One of the OG vegan restaurants in Toronto with an ominous address. I remember my dad getting takeout from here back in the 90s and we could have a meal for the whole family and leftovers for a few days, all for $20. It was super cheap and had good food. It’s still fairly priced but bordering on the $$ designation. They have a really big menu but you definitely need to try the imitation duck! This place is my go-to for Asian food.
244 Augusta Ave. – 4.4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 636 Google reviews – $$
Bunner’s has been around since 2010 and they make traditional vegan and gluten-free treats from their two locations. They have a very large selection of items with everything from Bake-at-home and prepared meals to muffins, cinnamon buns, brownies, and scones. They also deliver which is great.
Burger Tree – Vegan Restaurants Toronto
2313 Yonge St.
4.6 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 18 Google reviews – $$
Located inside the Kupfert and Kim location on Yonge Burger Tree offers plant-based meals that are also gluten-free. What makes this place unique is that they are trying to offer more than just one gluten-free option like most restaurants have. There are 5 burgers to choose from or you can make your own. they also have 4 chick’n burgers (made from oyster mushrooms!), load fries/nachos, shakes, salads, sides, drinks, and treats. Definitely on my visit soon list.
1651 Bloor St. W.
4.9 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 183 Google reviews – $
Family-owned vegan bakery offering cookies, sandwiches, cupcakes, flatbreads, cakes (preorder) drinks, and more. Their desserts are made from scratch in small batches every day, they deliver and have a patio! Their items are also coloured naturally and refined sugar-free.
Celebrity Pure Vegetarian

Found in the food hall at 5210 Yonge St. they offer catering, meal plans, pop-up brunches, and online cooking classes. Prices are reasonable and the food looks amazing.
Cinnaholic – Vegan Restaurants Toronto

199 Bay St. – 4.0⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 165 Google reviews – $$
With lots of locations across Canada and a couple in the United States, Copper Branch has you covered for vegan food when you are traveling. Toronto only has 1 now sadly but they offer Power Bowls, Burgers/Sandwiches, Smoothies, All-day Breakfast, and more. The Buffalo Wings from the picture are a must-try! Lots of plant-based meals that are pretty healthy make Copper Branch key to the Toronto vegan scene.
Eat Nabati – Vegan Restaurants Toronto
160 Baldwin St.
4.8⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 261 Google reviews – $
Located in Kensington Market, Eat Nabati serves, what they call, modern Middle Eastern Fare. It’s amazing that Toronto seems to have a plant-based restaurant for every different type of cultural food from around the world (Not there yet but more and more every year). When I first learned that they served a menu with plant-based Egyptian Street food I knew I had to check them out. Their prices are very fair and they have vegan mille feuille!

18 Banigan Dr. – Can’t find reviews
Fresh is a long-standing plant-based restaurant in the Toronto Area (Also Hamilton now). I remember when they weren’t 100% vegan but made the switch a while ago. They are the biggest chain of vegan restaurants I have found in the city with 7 locations. I have found that their food quality is quite good but I have yet to try their pizza but I have heard it is really good! Recently they were bought by Recipe Unlimited which owns places like The Keg and Swiss Chalet and many in the community have mixed emotions about this. Will this big change affect food quality? Will it make for many more locations to come in the future?
4134 Dundas St. W
4.9⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 63 Google reviews
Good Grains is focused on providing whole foods that are plant-based and good for your health. They have takeout fare which consists of Soups, salads, dips, dressings, mains (curry, stews, chili, etc.), and treats and beverages. I have yet to try this place out personally and their website doesn’t have any prices so I’m not sure about affordability but they sound like a very wholesome and healthy option and they have very good reviews on Google.
638 Dundas St W.

I love Greens and have gone many many times over the years. My favourite dish is #40 which are these deep-fried tofu balls with minced veggies and mushrooms inside. So good! (It’s been some time since I’ve been there so not 100% they still make them).
454 Bloor St W.

Located inside of Eva’s Original (which has awesome vegan soft serve btw!) on Bloor, Guerrilla Burger offers up Beyond Meat patties for u7 different types of juicy burgers.

Hawker is one of several vegan restaurants Toronto has located in Kensington Market. They offer Small plate, plant-based, naturalist cuisine. There are small plates to choose from or a six-course tasting menu which is inspired by the à la carte menu. Each course is served and explained by the chef while you sit at the bar-style counter that overlooks their open kitchen.
Kensington Market is a haven for vegan spots! This place has been around since 2015 and offers Juices, Mylks, and plants.

Heal is a wellness food restaurant and they serve quick, fresh plant-based wellness food. Every superfood ingredient in their menu is carefully selected with intention & purpose, to help energize you. I used to get their smoothies in Hamilton whenever I was there and was addicted to the acai one.
1122 Queen St W.
4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 907 Google reviews – $$
Great location for this vegan restaurant. Situated just west of Ossington they have a great patio that faces southwest, which makes it a great spot for grabbing a pint or glass of wine in the summer. For food, they have all-day brunch, smoothies, bowls, salads, burgers, and more!
1574 Bayview Ave.

This vegan restaurant in Toronto recently moved from Montreal and they offer vegan Indian food made with a balance of 5 flavours: Sweet, Salty, Sour, Bitter, and Spicy. Their blend of spices is made on-site, and they aim to balance and allow the body to function well with digestion and benefit from the medicinal properties of spices such as Turmeric (anti-inflammatory), Cumin (digestion), and Fenugreek (controlling lipids and glucides), as well as others.

The Hogtown Vegan has been around for over a decade and they have gotten pretty good at providing vegan comfort food for their loyal following of customers. When I think of this place I think of pub food like their Phish ‘n Chips, wings, nachos, Philly Cheesesteak, and poutine. They also have booze but if you’re looking for a nice relaxing place to have a drink maybe visit their new location on Bloor listed below (Hunny).

Honey’s is a vegan ice cream shop in Little Portugal that rotates 12 flavours on a daily basis. They sell their ice cream by the tub, bar, sandwich, and pie. Also, the cashew cream used for their products is made in-house! The name of the place comes from the owner’s rescue dog from Save Our Scruff which makes me like this place even more.

They also have some delicious-looking Entree Combos like the Bean Burger, Drumsticks, F’ish and Chips, and more. They have a lot of desserts to choose from that are really reasonable in price ($4.99 for cake). They also cater!

This is a great little deli in the East end that is one of my go-to’s. They have a pantry with everything from frozen meals to cheese, to sandwiches as well as readymade meals and more. The croissants you can get here are sooo good. They’re made with Miyoko’s Butter (My favourite kind) and they don’t contain any palm oil. I particularly like their breakfast sandwiches and it’s just great to have shops like these that cover so many of the things you need while living plant-based in the city.

K&K makes almost everything in-house from scratch on a daily basis. Their menu varies depending on location but most offer smoothies, blows, burgers, breakfast, etc. A nice touch is that they offer a 35¢ discount to anyone supplying their own container and their kitchens produce almost nothing that enters a landfill: the little waste produced is either composted or recycled.

Another one of the vegan restaurants Toronto has is La Bartola and they have amazing authentic Mexican food. Chef Ivan Castro uses simple, fresh, and high-quality local & Mexican ingredients to craft delicious and thoughtful food. The menu offers 4 starters, 4 mains, and 4 different types of tacos. I like short menus because you know each dish is fresh and made with care. If you are looking for a good mole then this place definitely has you covered!
1450 Danforth Ave.
4.8 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 158 reviews – $
One of my favourite spots in the city. Food is amazing, the place looks great and the smell of coffee is the icing on the cake.

La Vegan is known for its friendly staff and cozy atmosphere.

Vegan and allergen-conscious gelato place! (also a wine bar)…
Their gelato always excludes nuts, dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, and sesame. Their flavours rotate daily but they usually have about 13 to choose from. Oh, they have a patio and they also offer the option to rent out a gelato cart for a special event, like a wedding, etc.

Parka is like a fast food place with a twist, the twist being a focus on our favourite comfort food classics and reinventing them to be wholesome yet indulgent and 100% plant-based. They also have a commitment to sustainability which is really great. The menu: bowls/salads, burgers/sandwiches, wraps, pasta, mac and cheese, and of course fries.

Planta Queen is a vegan restaurant in downtown Toronto that offers up delicious Asian food in a beautiful atmosphere. I had a tofu stir-fry dish here a couple of years back and I can’t remember the name but it was one of the best dishes I have ever had (sadly not on the menu anymore). But not to worry they have plenty of more dishes to satisfy you with and they often have specials on particular nights like Disco and Dumpling Friday Nights. Did I mention they have Brunch?

Plant Lyfe is another one of my favourite spots in the city. It is run by really great and friendly people and you are always greeted with a smile. And their food is always fresh and delicious. I go there mainly for their coffee and their bowls (you have to try the Dragon Bowl pictured above) but they have a lot more. They also run a meditation studio just above the cafe and also have a line of sustainable products like cutlery, bowls, bags, clothing, etc.

This place is run by the same people as Avelo and Austeria Du. Originally they were going to open a plant-based Italian restaurant called Vitalia but before they could the chef suddenly passed away. They didn’t feel right about opening without him but decided to honor him by opening up Pizzeria Du. They have 7 pies to choose from as well as salads, pizza puffs, meatball subs, and other appetizers. They also sell pizza kits for $15 which are amazing! At this same location, there is also M!lk Vegan Gelato and Osteria Du (Italian Restaurant).

Another amazing Mexican food place that is in my top 5 favourite restaurants is Rosalinda. They closed down for a little over the pandemic but opened back up in November.

SIGP is a great low-waste meal kit delivery service run out of their location on Roncesvalles. Each week you can choose from 4 possible options and it works out to about $10 per portion which is pretty standard for delivery kits. They are shipped in reusable bags and the food is really great. The recipes can be made in 20 min or less which makes it stand out from some of the other companies. You can also add things from their pantry and they have a lot to choose from including tons of local vegan companies. They also offer grab-and-go bowls and sandwiches from their storefront.
*they have opened a new location on Dundas ST.*
Lastly, they have a referral and rewards club. If you refer someone you get $15 and the person signing up also gets $15 so it’s a win-win. If you are thinking of making an order use my promo and received $15: http://rwrd.io/b20n9br

61 as of June 2023
Yes, absolutely! There are 61 restaurants that are entirely vegan and it is almost hard to find any restaurant that doesn’t have vegan options. Aside from where to eat, Toronto is also a centre for animal welfare groups and legal rights advocacies within Canada.
