Staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Went there to purchase their Macaroni and Cheese where the portion was generous, price was fair and the sauce was creamy however it did not taste cheesy. The tang and any "cheddar" sharpness was not present despite many other things working for it. Other menu items may have been better but I did not try them. I would recommend others try this if other things on their menu fancy them. The staff were lovely to me and this place deserves your patronage,

Pros: Kind staff, Warm atmosphere, Clean environment

Cons: Macaroni and Cheese was creamy but not cheesy.

So yummy!

Had a fabulous lunch at this very clean and wonderful spot in Peterborough. You need to try it! So many options both warm and cold, and the homemade juice was delicious. We had the pad Thai, the electricity bowl, and we shared the polenta fries.

Pros: Great selection and variety, Extremely clean, Great service

Cons: A bit pricey, Not for a very quick meal

So good!

We stopped here for lunch last week. I had the pulled jackfruit and it was delicious! Everything was fresh, service was good, nice atmosphere. My picky child liked the waffles. Would go again!

Tasty healthy food

Had the taco salad for lunch today & enjoyed it very much, yesterday I had the green warrior smoothie & it was delicious. I've always enjoyed everything there except for the pad thai which I had once about a year ago. It had too much dressing & was more like a soup, not what I was expecting & the tahini dressing was overwhelming, needless to say, that's the only item I would never order again. Wish their lasagna was on the menu rather than occasionally a daily special item, it's amazing.

Pros: healthy items on menu, great business hours, friendly service

Cons: menu never changes except for daily special, a bit pricey

Healthy tasty meals

I like the food forest, though I find it a bit pricey. It’s completely gluten free and they use lots of organic veggies so I think that is why. The food is fresh and delicious. I particularly like the garden pesto sandwich with tempeh and the living tacos. They added a breakfast menu that includes waffles and a vegan version of eggs benny among other tasty choices.They also have great juices and teas! Portions are pretty big.

Pros: Fresh healthy food, Gluten free, Organic-focused

Cons: A little pricey

Cute, busy spot

Cute downtown spot. Reasonably priced and everything was delicious. Even my non-veg friend had a good meal.

Beyond Expectation

You had at vegan desserts, and smoothies but I come back for the Living Tacos. With only an hour drive each way it's perfect get away for lunch and worth every minute of the Drive!! So many options, sweet, savoury, smoothie, dessert, entrées, coffee, tea, cold pressed juice.

the best food around!

The best food around !

Many of my meat loving friends have been “ converted” to loving plant food because of food Forrest !

Their tacos are amazing ! Thai peanut bowl is insanely good !

It’s very comfortable inside and staff is always friendly.

They have great specials ! But sadly I only hear of them AFTER they have been served for the day ! Things like BBQ pulled jackfruit And crab cakes , I hear are good- but only happen in special occasion - I wish there was a way to learn of when these things were happening BEFORE they are over !

Food is always yum ! Get a raw taco - you won’t be disappointed ! Feel good food

Pros: so yummy! , feel good food , memorable experience !

Cons: pricy $, service is good, but not always fast ( in my exper

I'd go again

Hello, this was my first vegan restaurant since becoming a vegan and the food was pretty good. The prices were a bit much (garlic toast - 2 slices of bread was 4 dollars). Aside from that and some items from the menu were unavailable it was pretty good.

I've been hooked on the mushroom lentil burger since day 1! So much flavour! Definitely beats the alternative. Their delicious food opens so many new vegan/vegetarian doors I couldn't have imagined possible before this experience.

Even if you're not vegan/vegetarian, this place is definitely worth trying!

Pros: Very Filling (huge patty), Flavourful, Delicious

Cons: Unfortunately vegan isn't cheap

Pure Bliss

As good as it gets! The food is amazing here, They hit home with their comforting healthy recipes that even my omnivorous boyfriend enjoyed. Going there later today to get a glass of freshly pressed juice! Can't wait to try one of their sandwiches with a daily soup.

Things I recommend from trying so far:
-Taco Salad
-Mint Chocolate chip smoothie

Pros: Nice Atmosphere, Friendly, delicious food

Great vegan restaurant!

Had a very tasty and healthy lunch at The Food Forest today. WILL DEFINITELY make it our "GO TO" spot when in Peterborough.
Lovely young couple own and operate this quaint little restaurant.
You will note their knowledge on what's nourishing and good for us when you peruse the menu. Great gluten free breads, raw menu items, vegan fresh soup, fresh pressed juices and smoothies. ORGANIC ingredients. Great tea selection. And more....

Pros: Vegan organic fresh, Friendly staff, Quaint

Best restaurant in Peterborough!!

I found food forest online and was so excited! I took my uncle (a huge carnivore) yesterday and even HE fell in love with the food! Great ambiance, super friendly staff, good prices and unbelievable food! We had the thai salad and the tacos, which were to die for! The ambiance is adorable, completely vegan and raw! Definitely try this place!!

Pros: Taste, Price, Staff
