Beyond Expectation - Edit

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 !

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 - Edit

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.

First Time There - Excellent! - Edit

We enjoyed everything about our experience at The Food Forest! It is a cute restaurant located on a street where there are lots of shops, restaurants, etc.

We loved the variety of the menu. We popped in for a quick snack and shared a Green Warrior Smoothie (so many choices for smoothies and lots of options to add to your smoothie), Roasted Red Pepper and Cauliflower Soup, and the Pesto Sandwich that came with a side salad. The food was delicious. It was so fresh and very full of flavor!

The service was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable.

We didn't have time for dessert but they looked delicious in the case, especially the macaroons!

To us it had a very nice energy with a community feeling to it with a large corkboard to post events and local artwork on the walls for sale.

We highly recommend checking out their menu online or just go if you want to be surprised :-)

We are looking forward to going back and trying more items on the menu!

Pros: Excellent Food, Excellent Service, Great Energy

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

Great vegan restaurant! - Edit

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

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
