Very Accommodating - Edit

Visited Bonobo's while in Thunder Bay, brought along a non-vegan buddy who loved the meal and told me he would be back with his wife, who is also non-vegan. Something for everyone! I even shared a salad dressing recipe with them and they seemed eager to try it. The food was well prepared and good value. Very nice place, everyone should be trying it and supporting the local owners.

Pros: Good food with decent portions , Fair prices, Friendly and comfortable atmosphere

Cons: None that I experienced

A MUST visit in tbay - Edit

Right when I walked in, an extremely friendly and helpful woman explained the entire menu to me saying that everything can be made vegan! I ordered 3 different (and fairly prices) items and they were all so good! I highly recommend if you to go out for lunch/dinner or want something to bring home. Super tasty and speedy.

Pros: Everything can be made vegan. Friendly staff. Good

Cons: Closes slightly early.

Fantastic little independent! - Edit

We were only in Thunder Bay for 3 days, and we hit up Bonobo's every single day! We loved this place. The food was delicious and the staff super friendly. We were obviously new to the area and were standing off to the side checking out the menu board. The owner Sasha came over and asked if we had any questions, then offered to go through the menu with us. We're vegan, and although this is a vegetarian restaurant, every single item can be made vegan! Bread/buns/baked goods are all vegan. Over the couple visits we were there, we tried the mushroom melt, fish & chips, brownie, muffins, and the savoury & Mediterranean salads. No disappointments: all delicious with fresh, crispy produce. They are in a bit of a transition right now: they are getting away from carrying so much of the veg grocery type items that are now so easily obtained at the big chain grocery stores, and are in the midst of adding bathrooms and converting to more restaurant space (sit-down). We highly recommend this place! If we lived in Thunder Bay this would be a go-to regular for us.

Pros: Everything can be made vegan, Delicious food, Friendly & helpful staff

Cons: Limited hours of operation

My Favourite Place in TBay! - Edit

This is a place I've been going to for years, living in and out of Thunder Bay. I'm so happy that it's now super busy and popular!

The burgers are amazing and the selection of groceries is top-notch and cheaper than other health foods stores in Thunder Bay. The staff are always super friendly and recognize their regular customers. I've got to sample new vegan snacks and they're always eager to talk about new products. I definitely recommend this place!

Pros: delicious food, nice grocery selection, friendly staff

The BEST vegan/vegetarian burgers in Thunder Bay! - Edit

I love this place! They have an amazing selection of foods for vegans and other non-conventional eaters (vegetarian, gluten-free, even a few paleo items!) in the 'store' bit, and the meals prepared on-site are delicious. DELICIOUS. A vegan-friendly burger is greatly anticipated by an omnivorous husband every time we visit Thunder Bay. The owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

Pros: DELICIOUS food, Kind, engaging staff, Competitive prices

Cons: Closed Sun-Tues (I think?)

I love! - Edit

I go here regularily with my boyfriend. Most of the menu can be made vegan easily. They sometimes mess up the order though so just be sure it's correct before you leave if it's take-out.

The grocery store portion is really awesome and they have a wide variety of speciality vegan items that are clearly labeled. LOVE.

Pros: good food , friendly staff , perfect portions

Cons: They sometimes mess up , store hours

Bonobos - Edit

This family owned business is a grocery store and a casual restaurant. Coming from Vancouver and eating veg around the world, bonobos offers the BEST burgers and fresh cut fries that my meat eating friends love. This place is a gem, they use as much local produce as possible and have no problems customizing your order. They have vegan poutine and great gravy.. I eat here A LOT !!!

Pros: Beyond satisfying, Friendly owners!, U can pick up an amazing selection of groceri

Cons: Small area to eat

Great Food - Edit

Was visiting Thunder Bay this past September and hoping to find a place with vegan options. Due to scheduling, was only able to visit Bonobos for 10 minutes before my flight back to London. Was lucky enough to find amazing desserts for my flight including vegan butter tarts, squares, etc. Great staff and good selection. The north shore of Lake Superior has some options!

Pros: Vegan butter tarts!!!, Great service, Nice Place

Cons: Hard to find, Need to advertise more
