Aussi beau que bon

Un des seuls cafés du Vieux Port accueillant et proposant des options végé intéressantes. Il faut faire attention car la plupart des pâtisseries ne sont pas vegan.
Leur sandwich Viva La Vegan est simplement délicieux et nourissant!
L'ambiance animée peut en décourager certains, mais il faut y aller au moins une fois dans sa vie.

While not a vegetarian restaurant, this vegan had an amazing experience at Olive et Gourmando. There was a line up, and we had to wait, but it was worth it. This cafe had such a great atmosphere. The service was top-notch, and I loved the music. I told the staff at the order counter that I was vegan, and she directed me to all my alternatives. I chose one of the salads, which was full of surprises, delish, delish, delish. Vegan options are limited, but the atmosphere and salad were worth it!

Pros: Great atmosphere, Friendly staff
Cons: Few vegan options

Not a vegan destination

Seems like it might be ok for Vegetarians but not really for vegans. Heard about all the baked goods and coffee so I swung by there in the morning to get some breakfast only to find out that there were no vegan options. I decided to get a Chai Latte with soy for me and a Cafe Latte with soy for my gf. The chai was terrible. I ordered a large for both and they were the size of a small coffee cup you get in your hotel room yet cost almost $5 each. It took a solid 10-12 minutes for them to be made even though I was the only one who had ordered anything while I was standing there. The place was packed and parking is super scarce (this was on a random thursday morning). Maybe the vegan sandwich is good but just be aware that seems to be the only option.

Pros: Nice atmosphere
Cons: No Parking, Slow Service, Almost no vegan options

Delicious!

We only stopped in for bakery goods and their home-made tea infusions, but really loved all of it. I had the cherry-ginger scone with one of the fruit-tea drinks. It is expensive, but a very nice treat on the train to Quebec City!

Good food, but...

We went there for lunch on a Saturday at noon, and put our name down. The wait was 20 minutes. Once we got inside we were shown our table and told to wait in line to order our food at the deli counter. We ordered and were told the food would be brought to use. The paninis we ordered were excellent! My boyfriend had the vegan, which looked really good. Once finished, we were instructed to wait in a new line to pay at the cashier. This took another ten minutes since the place was packed. If you have time to kill it's definitely worth the visit. It's clear the owners want you to take the food out and not sit and eat, but their concept for waiting in three lines is a little silly. Also bring cash, they don't take credit cards

Pros: Food, Ambiance
Cons: Ordering , Payments setup

Fresh and Yummy

This is a great spot nestled in the Old Port of Montreal. They have vegan options clearly marked on their menu and many salads are vegan or can be made vegan. A raw vegan friend of mine even says that if she calls ahead, they can often accommodate her by making something special. A very nice spot to have coffee and a pastry too.

Pros: Charming, Vegan options
Cons: Very small dining room
