The Complete List of Vegan Restaurants in Toronto (Over 60!)


I love how many vegan restaurants Toronto has now and it seems that every month there is a new one! Covid did reduce the list a little bit and I’m very sad to see some of them go like By Chloe and Virtuous Pie but there are still a ton. I really think Toronto is one of the best places to be vegan in the world.

So, 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?

What do I mean by Toronto? Well, I’m basically setting the boundaries of Steeles to the North, Rouge River to the East, and Etobicoke Creek in the West.

Vegan Restaurants Toronto boundary map

I’ve included bakeries in this list even though are they technically restaurants? Maybe I’m weird but I picture meals and not desserts when I think of restaurants. Anyways, all of the places on the list are COMPLETELY vegan. Isn’t it nice to go to a place knowing you can order anything on the menu??

The bad part about 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 that 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 does mean that a lot of vegetarian places are left out also.

Lastly, 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 below.

For better or worse here is my complete list of vegan restaurants in Toronto:

ALK is located on Broadview near Queen and their website states “…[they are] Bringing You Affordable Healthy Vegan Options”. They also wish 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.

2) Avelo

A post shared by Avelo (@avelo.restaurant)

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 at 9:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 8:30 pm other days. They offer dietary alternatives such as gluten-free but require a 48 notice.

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 weddings.

A post shared by Buddha’s Vegan Restaurant (@buddhasveganto)

One of the OG vegan restaurants in Toronto with the 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 good food. It’s still fairly priced but bordering on to 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.

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.

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!

A post shared by Fresh Restaurants (@freshrestaurants)

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 not been to the one on Carlaw which seems to have an issue with this by looking at the terrible reviews. I have yet to try their pizza but I 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?

15) Good Grains

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.

Great location for this vegan restaurant. Situated just west of Ossington they have a great patio that faces south-west, 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!

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.

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 pet food to choose from 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 get my dog food from here all the time 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.

La Bartola has 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!

I first visited Lov in Montreal where they have 4 locations. It was the best plant-based poutine I had tried and was so excited to hear when they opened up a location on King West. The interior is truly amazing and picturesque. They also have a great patio in the summer. The menu is mixed, with things like lasagne to dumplings to shepherds pie so they can cater to many of your cravings.

I tried the newly opened Mavericks Burger tonight and it is my new favourite burger joint. They serve up the Impossible patty in 5 different burgers.

If you love Thai food, as I do, then head over to Mugi at Bathurst and Bloor. They make what I would describe as healthy Thai food that tastes really fresh. They make all of their curry paste or nam prik in-house and they don’t use MSG, hydrolyzed proteins, or glutamate flavouring. They have a menu with a lot of choices including the favourites like Pad See Ew and Green Curry but also things like Thai Pilaf and Hang Leh Jackfruit.

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.

I can’t decide if Cocina is my favourite restaurant in the city or Queen (below) but they are two different types of food so let’s say it’s a tie. Cocina is a Mexican-inspired restaurant and the newest of the chain locations in Toronto. The atmosphere is open and modern, in the summer you can enjoy a cocktail on the patio but always you can enjoy amazing Mexican food. You HAVE to try the Baja Mushroom Taco….just incredible. I want one now…

A little softer and more intimate setting inside Planta Queen and they offer up delicious Asian food at this location. I had a tofu stir dry 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) 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 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 soon to open Osteria Du (Italian Restaurant).

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. 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

Okay, so this place is technically in Vaughn but I thought I would add it because it’s just on the outside of the Toronto boundary. They are a quick-service Italian bakery, restaurant, and market.

A post shared by Tofu and Rolls (@tofuandrolls)

I just found out about this palace and I’m so happy because they sell fresh tofu. I have been on the lookout for a good tofu store where I can buy different types, all freshly made. Tofu and Rolls only offer two main types (plain and fried) but that is good enough. They sell their products in an ever-expanding list of locations. They also have takeout with dishes like Pho, spring rolls, tofu drinks, and tofu snacks. The best part: they make organic, non-GMO tofu, and their soybeans are all sourced from local farms. They also don’t use preservatives or additives!

Tori’s Bakeshop first opened its doors back in 2012 and they were Toronto’s first plant-based cafe. They have baked goods made daily with natural, organic, seasonal ingredients, and sourced as locally as possible. I love that their treats are all organic and they are also delicious. I have been here many times and have also ordered a few things in advance like pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and Butter Tarts! I highly recommend this place.

Japanese plant-based cafe selling comfort food, desserts, and good vibes. Dishes include things like 12 Spice “Beef” Curry & Rice, Karage, Teriyaki Karaage Sandwich, drinks, packaged meals, and also retail items. This place is amazing! You have to try their Karaage (Fried Chicken).

A post shared by The VEGGIE THALI (@veggiethali)

Toronto’s 1st fully Vegan Indian Restaurant with an extensive menu. There are lots of great Indian places that have almost the whole menu that is vegan or can be made so but I find that there are a lot of dishes that contain ghee and it’s amazing to have a 100% plant-based resto to go to. They just opened up a second location on Queen East!

Urban Herbivor has been around since 2005 and it’s been a little while since I’ve been but I used to always get the curry bowl because it was so good I didn’t need to try anything else. The tofu they had in it was some of the best I’ve ever had! It looks like they’ve renovated the place and now have space for indoor dining at nice tables available. The decor boasts 30 plants for you to feel in good company while you eat. If you decide on takeout they have 100% biodegradable packaging.

Veggie D’Light is a Vegan Caribbean take-out & catering shop in the heart of Kensington Market.

Aiming to prove that vegan food can be tasty and affordable Vegwood is set on being the next entertainment hub of Oakwood Village. This environmentally conscious shop offers a smallish menu but that means more effort is put into the items they serve. It consists of a burger, tofu ribs, unchicken & jerk unchicken salads/sandwiches, soups, and chili. Oh, and they also have Saturday breakfast (normally but because of covid it is suspended at the moment) and a loyalty card.

Yamchops is a plant-based butcher shop that offers so many things it’s hard to summarize into one paragraph. I have been here so many times I can’t remember when I started going. They have a deli where you can buy fresh burgers and ordered made meals. Their CHICK*N SCHNITZEL is amazing! They also have a large pantry where you can pick up cheese, frozen goods, holiday items and so much more. They had another location in Stakt Market but sadly they closed over the pandemic.

Last but very not least on the list is Yaowarat Vegan Thai Restaurant. They offer all of your Thai favourites but also have a lot of other dishes you might not know of to try out. The staff is super friendly and just an all-around great experience when you go here.

  1. Fantastic list, so handy!! Also: Social Gardener Café, La Bartola, Kaspace Café, Sweet Hart Kitchen and Bunner 🙌🏽

    • Thank you for this! I had those on my list but for some reason didn’t make it to the site… Just learned about Sweet Heart though! I love Kaspace but sadly they aren’t completely vegan so I left them off the list…

  2. Unfortunately King’s Cafe isn’t fully vegan. They have drinks and desserts that contain dairy. 😞
