Chef Veganessa is like a lot of vegan start ups and that's a good thing. Motivated by Celiac, Chef Vanessa began her culinary journey to healing herself, others and the planet. The cleaner her diet, the better she feels. Likely true of you too.

The cafe is spartan. Clean without guile or excess: this is a startup working a good business plan: follow your bliss, feed people light, Ka-ching.

We had Lemon Pepper Tempeh Pasta, Kale, Beets, many Date Balls and Ginger Tea. Oh and we bought Coconut Bliss Creme (they had chocolate peanut butter too) and a couple more of those date things with the chocolate action going on: all vegan, allergen and gluten free.

And it was goood. Sure you always want more tempeh but the Tinkyada brown rice pasta is dense without being heavy. There's some veg (more please) and a light sauce, neither spicy nor tart.

The kale salad was standard raw vegan with a sweet dressing, fresh and flavorful. There were berries (dried cranberry maybe and date?), chewy not tough.

Her cooked beets too were remarkable for their simplicity and made a colorful accent among the greens and browns.

The business is the partnership of Chef Vanessa and her husband, Alex, who we met. It began as a meal delivery service though the grab and go cafe is a growing if not majority segment. Hip and healthy, conscious consumers can order an entire week's food at a time or drop in and buy tonight's dinner and tomorrow's lunch. And, the last ice cream sandwich (grrr, had my eye on that) as the guy who came in while we were eating did.

Overall, we and our not veg friends enjoyed it all. And then we got two more of the ample date balls, some Daiya cheddar and the Coconut Bliss ice creme, to go.

Dinner for four was under 50 dollars. Groceries an extra 25. Good value and good karma.

Pros: Friendly service, Reasonable price, portions, South of Montreal nearer NY
Cons: The sold toiletry items are not vegan., Only 8 seats, More variety

Stumbled upon this great place while driving into Montreal from Ontario by using the Happy Cow app. It's in a small suburban strip mall and certainly doesn't look fancy, but the delicious food, large portions, and friendly service more than make up for that. Although the description says take-out there are actually a couple of tables both inside and outside, and the staff will gladly heat your cooked food for you. In addition to the main dishes there are also salads, sweets, and drinks. All vegan.

Pros: Delicious food, Ample portions, Great service
Cons: Fridges are a little noisy, Limited seating
