2804 N IH-35, Austin, USA

Decent food, ambience is nonexistent

My wife and I eat a lot of Ethiopian so we've definitely found some favorites around North America. This definitely isn't at the top of the list but it's hard to go too wrong with a mixed veggie platter. Not a stylish or classy environment so keep that in mind if bringing guests.

392 Queen St W, Toronto, Canada

Can't get enough

The Panko tofu Bao and the Tofu Bahn Mi sandwich are awesome. There can be a good half hour wait at lunch due to the line up but it's worth it if you haven't been.

Unique

Really unique Indian street food you wouldn't find anywhere else. Love this place for incredibly cheap, filling, and different snacks like a burger made out of mashed samosas as filling.

Meh

The food was about what you'd expect from a pub. Nothing special. We went for veggielicious and the five courses were way overpriced for what we received. I appreciate the vegan options they offer, but it's not really a place I'd go for dinner again.

25 Hayden St, Toronto, Canada

simple, warm, hearty, and delicious

I'm always blown away by how much flavor they get out such seemingly simple dishes. I've loved everything I've had on their revolving menu except for one item, which is impressive considering I eat here twice a week. Be prepared for some steep prices, but you'll definitely feel good with your stomach full of such a wholesome meal.

Not worth the hype, better options in the city

For the priciest and some say the best vegan dining in Canada, I've been very disappointed. It is nothing compared to other gourmet vegan dining like Madeleine Bistro in Los Angeles or Candle 79 in New York. The food is just average and I wouldn't say it outshines the likes of moderately priced cafes like Fresh or Live in Toronto unless you're going for the atmosphere. The wait staff has also been rude. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience high end vegan dining before Fressen, I'd say give it a try. I may just have been spoiled and have had higher expectations for such a pricey meal. The brunch was especially disappointing to the four of us who tried it recently.

Two must haves

Ask for a half jackfruit half black bean burrito and you won't be disappointed. The next time you go, try to land a Mac N Cheese burrito. Amazing.

2366 Yonge Street, Toronto, Canada

Same problem with all pay by weight places - price

The food was very nice and it is wonderful to get to try many items in one meal. But, as with any pay by weight place, it ends up costing more than you'd expect. Definitely a dangerous place to visit when you're starving!

140 Spadina Ave, Ste A101, Toronto, Canada

Simple and tasty...

Sometimes the ingredients can be a bit too simple. Case in point, the other day I got rice noodles with faux meat atop it and the "vegetables" along with it was nothing more than lettuce. The meat was great but I needed more flavouring to make m way through the lettuce and noodles.

However, I got pad thai yesterday and it had three different proteins on it which was unexpected. welcomed, and delicious. The friends I went with seemed to enjoy their dishes of Curry and Spicy Cha Cha as well.

The prices are a little high for what shows up on your plate but you're paying for the organic ingredients so it's hard to complain.

I think Green Earth is a better option for this type of food but it is a welcomed vegan addition to the downtown core and I'll be hitting it for lunch weekly.

1263 Queen Street West, Toronto, Canada

Excellent appetizers, salty main

Really incredible appetizers but all three main's we have tried here have been way too salty. The last time it wasn't as bad but unfortunately I don't think we'll be going back unless they make a change or if we're just in the mood for some of their appetizers!

18621 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana, USA

Best vegan restaurant in the country

I've had the pleasure of dining here so many times I have lost count. It surpasses meals I have had at other top American restaurants such as Candle 79 or Millennium. The presentation is always spectacular. The servers couldn't be nicer. The chef is an artist who is constantly developing new items, each one better than the last. I can't recommend Madeleine Bistro enough for a fine dining experience. Brunch is equally as good as dinner and both are worth checking out. Their prix fixe menus on holidays are very expensive but worth experiencing at least once. Recommendations: Everything. But especially the Red Beet Tartare, the Bigger Maque, the Mac and Cheese, any of their soups, etc etc etc.

Unique items

I won't be buying things like soymilk here because the prices are high (unless I'm feeling generous that day and want to support such a great cause), but I will blow my paycheck on all the unique vegan fare that I can only find at Panacea. Vegan versions of Snickers, Milky Way, and Three Muskateers are a good start. Followed by vegan cheesecake, a wide selection of cheeses, frozen dinners, and ice cream bars. It's great to have a place like this in the city.

504 Adelaide St W, Toronto, Canada

Heart diner food that's plentiful and cheap

I love Sadie's. If you're looking for nice, light, healthy fare, hit up someplace else. This place has giant pancakes, excellent vegan club sandwiches, big breakfast burritos served all day (add the guacamole), and a big slice of cheesecake for dessert. Cool art on the walls that changes often makes for a fun place to dine in as well. Did I mention it was cheap?

193 Baldwin St, Toronto, Canada

Great sandwiches, sausages, and ginger beer

Two delicious sandwiches and great vegan sausages to take home and cook up later.

Home brewed ginger beer to boot that is really great but very strong. Don't be expecting Canada Dry. This is the real deal.

894 Queen Street West, Toronto, Canada

Consistent, quality food

Never had a bad meal here. While it is a bit more expensive than other cafes, you get what you pay for. High quality food, healthy portions, and great taste. For those looking for something heavy, go for the BBQ burger. The bowls are really filling as well and I love the Powerhouse when I'm starving. Amazing sweet potato fries with the most incredible vegan garlic mayo you could dream up. For a refreshing shake, try the Shamrock.

Great, fresh, unique wraps

I eat here a few times a week and it is very hard to grow tired of if. You can stuff a wrap with dozens of high quality menu items like quinoa, kale, avocado, and tofu, pour on dressings like spicy peanut or teriyaki, add veggies like spinach, green onion, sundried tomatoes, and cucumber. You could make a different wrap every day for a year or create your own salad. I've been very impressed with the quality of this place since I started going a few months ago. Great find.

385 Broadview Avenue, Toronto, Canada

Great little place for an inexpensive meal

My wife and I come here often for a simple, inexpensive meal. Three entrees shared between the two of us comes to $20 which can't really be beat. The food is pretty good for the price and I highly recommend the hue noodle soup or the three flavours. Their menu is varied and you can get everything from tacos to burgers to philly cheesesteak sandwiches to wonton soup. Not the best vegan restaurant in Toronto but it's affordable, friendly, clean, and one of those places you can go back to again and again.
