Delicious vegan food!

This is a great little vegan and gluten-free place with a delightful menu and bakery. My son had the Ah Caramel for dessert--brownie with nest of pecan icing on top filled with liquid caramel and all dipped in chocolate. Wow!

Excellent lunch spot for a meal, coffee or baked goods!

They offer a great selection of baked goods, meals and coffee available for take or or dine in. The dinning room has plenty of seating and there is also a couple tables on their patio out front.

They also offer an excellent selection of fridge/freezer take home meals.

Delicious pastries

Had lunch here and bought some pastries to go. Lunch was good, albeit a bit unhealthy ;-). The pastries were awesome. We even went back a couple of days later to get some more.

Great store with lots of options

We had a mixture of baked goods, which were really good! For a quick lunch, we got the cauliflower wings- really good! Only downside: it was all pretty expensive.

Pros: Great service, Good variety , Tasty

Cons: Expensive

Will return!

My fiancé and I stopped here while driving through Barrie and I’m very happy we did. We ordered the Big Pantry burger with a side poutine and the jalapeño poppers and it was SO GOOD. I do wish the fries were deep fried instead of air fried, but I’m sure my body appreciates them going the healthier route.

The dining area was quiet, clean, and welcoming, and I loved the ethical vegan messaging. We’ll be coming back every time we drive through town!

Pros: Very friendly staff, Lots of seating , All vegan

Great vegan desserts and hot drinks

We've tried cheesecakes, regular cakes, brownies, nice-cream sandwiches, and other bakery items, and also some of their hot food - lasagnas, cauliflower wings, tofu meat, etc. Their sweet items are really good and would highly recommend. Some of the hot food is great, and other isn't so great. I love their butternut squash lasagna, but not so much the enchiladas

Pros: Really yummy dessert items , Nice cafe with drinks and grab and go sweets

Cons: Not a fan of their online ordering system , Don't like some of the food food

Very good!

Small, friendly little bakery featuring lots of frozen and refrigerated goodies to take home. I tried the blondie and it was absolutely delicious - highly recommend. Brought home some smoky BBQ cauliflower wings which came with a dipping sauce. Heated them in the oven when home - they were good but not great. I find with cauliflower wings they’re only great when eaten fresh. It made making dinner easy though! Also bought an Animal Lovers pizza to bring home which we have yet to try. There is a hot menu too, with apps, burgers, pizzas etc for takeout or to eat on the patio. I’ll try that next time! I definitely want to try the jalapeño poppers. Very friendly staff, cute merchandise, great selection.

Pros: Baked goods are delicious, Friendly staff, Variety

Cons: A little pricey, Cauli wings would be better freshly made

Great food!

Ordered from here for Thanksgiving and loved it. Best part about this meal was the potatoes and the warm gravy. Wasn't too much of a fan of the roast they provided but covered it in gravy and it was to die for.

Pros: Gravy

Cons: Roast tasted like pressed scrambled tofu

So many options

We were passing through Barrie hoping to find a place with a few vegan options. This place totally blew our expectations out of the water! A decadent bakery, restaurant and plenty of frozen and fresh grab and go options, all nestled in the side of a cute Victorian home. There was a dog-friendly patio of three tables where we were able to enjoy our Big Mac pizza (love the sesame seeds), jalapeño poppers, pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie. We couldn’t resist taking one of the cherry filled skulls plus a mushroom and jackfruit pot pie home with us. Only wish this was closer to home!

Pros: So many options, Big dessert portions, Friendly service

Good not great

I’ve tried a variety of food from here, It’s all good but nothing great. Cauliflower wings and brussels sprouts were good but soggy. Tofu nuggets have no flavour at all. Pastries have often been stale. Took a lasagna home once which was good, and nice to have a ready made meal to throw in the oven. Cheese balls and chip dip are good for a charcuterie board. Banana cake is well done, really enjoy the cream cheese icing. It’s a good vegan option for the area but nothing special.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Cute merchandise , In-store and take home food

Cons: Rude staff , Not a lot of flavour , Food sometimes stale

The sweets are divine.

Tried this place for the first time a couple months ago. We were rushing and I was looking for something to sneak in to the movie theatre🎭 Nothing beat eating brownies and looking at Aquaman. Will definitely be back to try some hot food.

Incredible Food Incredible Owners & Employees

We stopped in through the late summer during a van life road trip. At first the gluten free thing made me nervous but holy cow! All the food was delightful. We basically did a grocery haul and enjoyed a variety of their vegan food on the road including veggie dip, 2 kinds of cauliflower wings, jackfruit, desserts and more. We were impressed with everything (which is surprising because we are often called food snobs lol).

Pros: Food is amazing., Lots of grab and go options., Owners and staff are amazing.

Good. Not great

Picked up lunch and a few things. Poutine was mediocre. I wish they had mentioned there were mushrooms and jackfruit on it. Mushrooms felt like they were from a can. I also got the salad dressing. It's good, my partner feels there is not any flavour. I would go back for a second chance because the desserts looked great.

Make sure to try a Nanaimo bar when you go, some of the best I’ve ever had - vegan or not!
