Best vegan restaurants in Toronto


Fresh

Fresh is one of my fave casual restaurants in Toronto, and they serve up delicious plant-based eats made from scratch with whole, natural ingredients!

A lot of their dishes don’t actually taste vegan, so it’s a great spot to introduce plant-based food to your omnivore friends.

Their burgers and quinoa onion rings are some of my favourites on their menu!

They even offer craft cocktails made with local artisanal ingredients, as well as raw and organic cold-pressed juices that you can take home with you.

Fresh has been serving up plant-based eats since 1999, and they’ve since opened 10 locations across the GTA.

The Fresh on Front is probably my favourite location – the interior is gorgeous and super Instagrammable!

The Hogtown Vegan

Plant-based, Southern comfort foods are what you’ll find at The Hogtown Vegan.

They’ve got a bunch of amazing vegan appetizers, as well as some delicious handheld options!

Start with their Chili Cheese Fries and go for their Hogtown Burger made with a soy patty.

Their interior is fun and colourful, and they’ve got a great front patio during the summer months!

LOCATION: 382 College St, Toronto, ON


Parka Food Co.

Can’t get enough of the vegan comfort food bites?

Stop into Parka on Queen West, where you’ll find plant-based dishes made without imitation meats and without artificial ingredients or preservatives.

They’re all about sourcing ingredients locally and supporting biodiversity and sustainable agriculture, so they switch up their menu seasonally!

Choose between their selection of handhelds, bowls, or mac n’ cheese – they’ve got an epic selection of mac n’ cheese made with cashew cheese.

LOCATION: 424 Queen St W, Toronto, ON


Rosalinda Restaurant

This stunning and very Instagrammable restaurant serves up upscale, plant-based Mexican-inspired eats at their spot in the Financial District.

Go for their Meaty Mushroom Birria Tacos or their Tofu Chorizo Verde & Organic Quinoa Bowl.

They’ve also got incredible signature cocktails, like their Almond Cold Brew Martini and Guava Mule.

I absolutely adore their bright and airy interior filled with plants and tons of natural light!

LOCATION: 133 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON

They’ve also got a mix of classic and house special cocktails on the menu!

LOCATION: 620 King St W, Suite 102, Toronto, ON


Planta

I’m pretty sure Planta was one of the first restaurants in Toronto to popularize vegan eats among people who aren’t vegan!

Planta started out with their original location in Yorkville, and they’ve since opened up several different plant-based concepts across the city.

You’ll find upscale vegan dishes at their Yorkville location, Asian-inspired bites at their Queen West location, and burgers and tacos at their side-by-side Financial District locations.

They also offer brunch at their Yorkville and Queen West locations!

LOCATION: Various locations


Hello123

Hello123 is a restaurant and bar by the same people behind Kupfert & Kim, a long-standing takeout spot loved by Financial District workers.

They’ve got an awesome selection of vegan shareables, handhelds, bowls, and mains.

Try something lighter like their Spicy Bap Bowl or something heavier like their House Lasagna (made with cashew ricotta)!

You can find their location on West Queen West!

LOCATION: 1122 Queen St W, Toronto, ON
