We enjoyed their white patty burgers quite a lot!

Choc chip cookies were decadent!

Tasty!! - Edit

My husband and I stopped there on our way to and from Brampton. We had burgers and fries the first time and hot dogs on the way back. Delicious! When I are meat, I used to love hotdogs, as awful as they are. But now, I was able to get delicious vegan hotdogs. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable. Thank you! Will be back!

Pros: excellent food and service

Cons: the seats are very uncomfortable

Sloppy burgers, delicious salads and uber friendly staff - Edit

We've been going here since it first came to Barrie. I'll be 100% honest that my first take out experience wasn't great but we ate in next time and it was delicious.

I recommend eating there if you can.

The burgers are a great combination of flavour and texture. I love the fact that you can get a burger in a wrap which makes it way easier to eat.

The caesar salad is spectacular and the chili fries are fabulous.

This portions are HUGE so I suggest you don't go overboard when ordering because you'll be overfaced. We share a burger / fries and it's way more than enough.

Pros: Great food overall, Huge portions / easily shareable, Friendly staff

Always a treat to visit here - Edit

I often make a point to stop here when I'm able to. I love the food, and the fact that it's the only vegan restaurant nearby. It is a bit on the pricey side.. my burger (the Greek Almighty" with a pop with tax came to $16.) But this is a huge burger and an authentic old fashioned root beer. The ingredients are quality and most importantly, cruelty free. I love how they keep pan-flits and brochures about nearby animal sanctuaries and have pictures of cows on the walls. It tells me that the company is not just in it for the plant based, but also the animal rights aspect which is unique to all the restaurants in Barrie.

Pros: Good portions, decent value for money spent , Lots of options- even kids meals, Right downtown Barrie

Best Vegan Burger Ever - Edit

So my daughter surprised me with a lunch date to The Boon Burger Cafe yesterday (3-22-17) in Barrie, Ontario. What a delightful surprise. The workers were friendly and helpful, the restaurant was clean and bright. But most of all, the burgers were absolutely delicious.

With almost 30 different burgers to choose from, I decided on the Backyard BBQ , which was totally delicious. They also offer salads and wraps, which I may try on my next visit. The nice thing about the burgers is that they are not fried. They are baked and then placed on a grill, which gave them a really nice flavor. The buns are baked on the premises, and were really tasty. I will definitely return to Boon Burger Cafe on my next visit to Barrie.

Pros: Taste was delicious, Lots of yummy extras on the burger, The sauces were also very tasty

Great food! - Edit

I absolutely loved my burger and Caesar salad. I got the ''backyard barbecue '', which was basically a remake of a very classic, loaded up summer burger. The patty is insanely realistic, as is the cheese. This was my first time trying vegan Caesar salad and I LOVED it! It didn't taste like dairy Caesar salad, but who cares, it was great! Everything tastes super fresh and homemade. The best part is probably the buns, which are wonderfully soft with a slight crisp. Only 4 stars because the service was pretty bad - I think it may have been my server's first day, so I had to wait at the cash for quite some time while he figured out how to ring it in and he forgot about my milkshake until I reminded him after the meal. He didn't apologize, but no biggie - I'm sure that service is usually better. The milkshake wasn't to die for, and it seemed a small serving size for the price. I'm personally more a fan of soy and cashew based ice creams than coconut as this one was, but still worth ordering!

Pros: wonderful, fresh food, cute, roomy interior , very Eco-conscious

Cons: Milkshakes aren't as good as the food, Poorly lit interior , Bad service during my visit

Great patty, but... - Edit

We stopped in Barrie just to have lunch here because of the rave reviews. I'm sorry to say we just weren't crazy about it. The patty was very good, but there was just way too much sauce. My bun was not toasted and so it went soggy and I had to eat most of it with a knife and fork. I must say, though, I loved my vegan milkshake!

Nice plant-based meal - Edit

It was my first time eating here. The food was great. It filled me up; I was not hungry any more.

The only thing that I did not care for was having to take a table marker to our table which was a plastic animal. Ours was a goat. Since we had to order at the counter, I guess it was their way of knowing what orders were for the different tables. The kids would enjoy this but I thought it was not hygienic.

Very good selections. I ordered a buddha burger and a dish of oven-baked sesame-potato fries to share with my non-vegan friend. The fries could have been a little more crisp but they were not greasy and are very tasty. My friend liked her boon burger too.

Messy and delicious - Edit

Quick friendly service. Tremendously messy delicious burgers with inventive an healthy combinations. Their take home burgers are perfect with salads or lazy at home cooking. Boons is also reasonably priced - great for any occasion.

great burgers - Edit

I was recently in Barrie on a business trip and ended up at Boon Burger Cafe for lunch.
I had a chickpea patty with sweet potato and pickles , lettuce , onions and BBQ sauce , on a gluten free bun.
It was delicious.
The rest of my party also had various veg burgers and we all loved our meals .
We shared a Caesar salad which was huge - enough for 3-4 people . Having never had a " real " Caesar salad before - I really loved it. The bacon bits are made of soy and as 1 of our party has a soy intolerance we left it off.
We would all return to Boon Burger Cafe if we are in Barrie again

Pros: very delicious, friendly staff , knowledgeable staff

Easily a favourite - Edit

I found out about Boon just a couple months ago but, despite living in another city and not one to eat out often, I have been back half a dozen times. I have repeatedly taken friends and family (none of whom are vegan) with me and they have all loved it too.

The food has always been delicious and reasonably priced. On my first visit I actually kept my menu and have been writing down the rating for each dish as I try it. So far every single dish has been either a 4 or 5 except the poutine which earned a 3. I've only had the poutine once though, so I'll have to have it again for a fair rating.

The staff has always been very friendly and answers any questions that we had. I have even had them recommend some other awesome business in the area to check out and learned about a vegan shop in my home town because of them.

I have tried to think of an actual negative to post, but honestly the mediocre poutine I had is the worst thing I've experienced about the place and that could have just been a one-off considering the quality of everything else.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Reasonable prices

Cons: Not in my hometown

Awesome! - Edit

I've been to Boon Burger twice and will be coming again whenever in town. The food is amazing, the staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is inviting. I live in Sudbury but from now on Boon Burger is the place I'll be stopping in each time I travel down south. Awesome place.

Great food - Edit

My first opportunity to visit Boon. Excellent service and quality food and portions. Flavour was excellent and very filling. Too bad I love a thousand miles away and won't be able to visit often.

Fantastic!!! - Edit

I have been twice and have enjoyed the food each time. The first time I took my teenaged kids, neither of whom is vegan. They had the poutine and the chili, but also said they liked the taste of my yummy Reuben burger. The gravy on the poutine was terrific. The second time I went with people from work: 1 Paleo, 2 health-conscious eaters, and 1 regular carnivore. A couple were a bit timid to try "vegan" food, but were pleasantly surprised by their burger selections. The portions were about right, and the seating comfortable and casual. I had the Greek burger on my second visit: also very good, but I think the Reuben will always be my favorite! The fries are baked, and quite tasty. Be sure to try the shakes when you go - the pina colada is especially good. The process of ordering at the counter and having the food brought to the table does not seem to be clear at first: some extra signage, or wall menus that can be read before reaching the front of the line might be helpful. All in all: good, tasty value for the money!

Pros: Large selection of tasty burgers, Yummy fries and gravy, Reasonable prices

Cons: Need signage re: order process, Wall menus would help

Yuck - Edit

Can't give this one star--but I think that is what it deserves. Expensive (even though portion sizes are big, still pricey) Service is poor and staff need personality and training. Food left us feeling bloated, yet hungry. Alas, I think that this cafe will not be in existence in a short period of time.

Pros: nice decor

Cons: poor service, food left us feeling yucky, overpriced

Very Pleased! - Edit

My boyfriend and I are not vegans, but we are trying to work towards a vegetarian/vegan diet respectively. I wanted him to see that eating vegan dishes could be just as tasty as meat dishes. I had looked at the menu online but didn't really know what to expect. We ordered our food from the counter(which I like, you can leave as soon as you're done eating!) and our food came in a reasonable amount of time. I had a Cowboy Burger with Poutine and my boyfriend had a spicy boon buffalo burger and the super supper-platter. We were very happy with the size of the burgers, however we were a little disappointed with the size of the sides - but it was definitely enough food overall, I just think the price was a little much for the sides offered. We ended up paying more than we would at a "sit down, full service" restaurant, but I think the quality of the food made up for it. It wasn't a cheap burger on any old bun, it was truly quailty food being served. My boyfriend was the first to say he would definitely go back. We tried each other burgers, and I didn't like his - too spicy for me, and he also preferred mine over his but still enjoyed his very much. I think it was because mine was a bean burger instead of tofu to be honest. Looking forward to our next visit!

Pros: Great sized burgers, Perfect Atmosphere, Friendly Staff

Cons: Smaller sides than expected
