just okay - Edit

I tried their coconut curry with bread sticks as well and feel the same way. The bread was rock hard and there was way too much rice

It's ok - Edit

I came here at a time when they had run out of a bunch of things, so I didn't get my first choice. I had the coconut curry, which tasted fine, but not like coconut. They asked me if I wanted breadsticks, and I said yes. When I tried to eat them, they were hard as a rock! I'd advise against getting the breadsticks later in the day, if I were you. If I come back, I might give them another chance, but there're other places in the city that I liked a lot better.

Very satisfying - Edit

We tried two different sandwiches and both were saucy and satisfying; I also tried the carrot cake cupcake and chocolate coconut cupcake and both were excellent (and they were buy 1-get 1 free). Really liked the cranberry lemonade too.

Pros: Tasty, Convenient location

Cons: Can be hard to find seating during lunch rush

Tasty.. - Edit

I had quite a walk to find this place but it was well worth it. Please bear in mind it is inside the Eaton centre in the food court on the lowest level. I ordered the sweet chilli 'chicken' sandwich on rosemary flatbread which was fantastic! I also ordered the 'Rhino' salad for my dinner later that day which was HUGE but very tasty. I agree with some of the previous reviews that it is a little pricy but you do get a lot of food, too much for me in fact I couldn't finish the salad when I had it later that evening on my flight home. I will definitely go back when I next visit.

expensive but tasty - Edit

I've tasted all the sandwiches and all are pretty good! My fav is the potato club with cheez. The sandwiches are bigish portions but not big enough to justify 12$+tax. The deserts are amazing! I've dooped many of my anti-vegan family members by gifting them some! I also love the juices!

Great food, but a Little Pricey - Edit

Great food, but a little pricey for a fast food mall location. A salad cost $10. They need to offer fast food options as well and lower their prices.

Pros: Great food, No fast food options, All vegan!

Cons: Not a fast food place, A little bit pricey

A safe heaven in Eaton Centre - Edit

Eaton centre is obviously not the cosiest place in Toronto, but this is precisely why you'll be relieved to find a 100% vegan place in the food court - if you happen to be there - and hungry. Their sophisticated, filling and healthy salads are just what you need.
The food is excellent, there are tons of options.

Pros: Excellent food, Convenient location on Younge Street

Cons: Noisy food court

Love!! - Edit

I always love going here when I visit Toronto! The sandwiches and salads are all very tasty. My favorite is the bbq tofu. The cupcakes are also good. It's so nice to see a vegan restuarant in a mall food court!

Pros: good food, healthy options, nice staff

Huge portions, less taste - Edit

Due to the good reviews I decided to give it a try on my stay in Toronto and got really disappointed.
The prices are okay since the portions are huge. I had the coconut curry which wasn't tasting neither like coconut nor like curry. To me it looked like potatoes with tomato sauce and a couple of peas and basil. It was really overlooked and not spiced at all. Then I tried the stew which funny looked the same but had a bunch of quinoa at the bottom. The stew wasn't spiced either. Vegan food never tasted as boring as here.
That place gets 2 stars for the good prices and the huge portions that's it.

Pros: good prices, huge portions, gluten free cupcakes

Cons: over cooked , lame taste, little choice

so yummy - Edit

The stew was massive and could have fed me for three meals. Amazing tempeh. And the raspberry cupcakes were brilliant!

Classy and Yummy - Edit

Urban Herbivore is a great place to come for a lunch when shopping at the mall. I'm not a huge fan of food courts myself, but to see a vegan option pop up in one, that makes me happy! The food there can be made quite healthy, from what I saw. We tried a couple of their pre-made entree dishes, and the portions were very generous. I love that a fast food location can make something that seems so fancy -- "restaurant quality"!

Pros: Fancy, Delicious Food, Healthy

Cons: In a Food Court

Cons: Expensive

Awesome food! - Edit

Hi Everyone!
I was roaming around at the Eaton Centre food court hoping to find something vegan to eat! I googled this and came across great reviews for Urban Herbivore!
I made a beeline towards this place with amazing food and I couldn't be happier.
What did I have? Coconut curry stew with brown rice and a side salad. I treated my friends to some vegan cupcakes. We had the chocolate, banana and almond cupcakes! Simply delicious :)
To eat here on a regular basis could ofcourse get pricey, but once in a while treat yourself :) I would DEFINITELY recommend the coconut stew, it was amazing! I need to find the recipe to make it at home if I can :)

Pros: Stew, Cupcakes, Service

Cons: A little pricey

fantastic value - Edit

came across this by accident, tucked way in a shopping complex food court but will be returning again,. we are inToronto another week and will be looking for their other stores. The Morroccan stew was large with rice/ pumpkins and other goodies, separate tofu and salad. great value and great tatse. fully recommended, and a bonus was they have vegan gluten free cup cakes

Pros: price, large tasty serving, value

Cons: hard to get a table as in a food court

Fresh, fast and fabulous - Edit

While shopping at the Eaton Centre for the first time since going vegan, I knew exactly where I was headed. Let me tell you, Urban Herbivore did not disappoint. The staff was extremely helpful and suggested the Sesame Tempeh sandwich which was delicious and came with an equally delicious side salad. I also got a cupcake which was heavenly. I couldn't believe my meal came from a food court!

Pros: selection , freshness , fast food done right

Cons: a tad pricey

URBAN HERBIVORE - Edit

True to its name. With its located in TO urban condensed areas, this vegan restaurant offers good, healthy, low-sodium-low-fat vegan option from soups to salads to desserts. Good service and good quantities of food. It fills you up and keeps you going in the chaos that is urban city life. :)

Cons: food is not always completely fresh

Not bad in a pinch - Edit

We've only eaten at Urban Herbivore once, and while it is adequate, it didn't blow our socks off compared to other vegan restaurants throughout the Toronto area. Nice for a family, or anyone just getting into veganism, as they offer versions of foods you would be accustomed to eating.

Pros: Good variety

Cons: Not raw, not super healthy

Cons: none

Great Veg option in a food court! - Edit

Whenever I go to the mall it is always a struggle to find a veg option let alone a GOOD veg option. Urban herbivore is yummy, not too expensive and fast! I am so happy they opened this location in the mall.The only thing is because it is so popular they often sell out of specials and some menu items.

Pros: Fast, yummy, not too expensive

Cons: sell out of speicals fast

Vegan Food Court? Win! - Edit

I love this place! I stumbled upon it looking for a snack at the food court. I got much more than a snack. For $10 I got a *huge* avocado/sprout/tahini sandwich and a side salad, both of which were really really good compared to almost any food court food anywhere. Definitely going back before I leave Toronto!

Pros: Tasty!, Quick! , Cupcakes!

Easy choice - Edit

I just stopped while shopping. Although I didn't try the salad bar, it looked inviting. All I wanted was a mixed green juice and some cookies. Both were great.

Horrible - Edit

If it wasn't getting late already and that my partner and I weren't staying at a hotel nearby, we most certainly wouldn't have come here for dinner. Everything was wrong except for the huge portions.

I ordered a tomato lentil soup and the coconut curry with added tempeh. They just didn't turn out to be quite what was described on the menu, and the taste was all meh. The soup strangely had more corn than lentils, also way too tomato-ey and sour. No depth whatsoever. The coconut curry was an even bigger joke. Never had I tasted a curry so bland; the coconut flavor eluded me completely. All I had for vegetables in my stew were potatoes, nothing else, and it came with rice too (we'll get to the rice in a second). So, for some reason they decided to serve a starch with more starch and make you pay extra for tofu/tempeh for protein. Great tactics. Now, back to the rice. It was supposed to be a mix of brown and black sticky rice, but there was no way the black one was the sticky variety. I'm Asian so I know my sticky rice. It was oversalted as well, so was the tempeh I ordered extra. So far nothing I got on the table resembled what was written on the menu, and the food was pretty vile.

It's part of the food court in Eaton Centre, so there is not much atmosphere to speak of. For the money I paid ($16), I could have easily gotten much nicer food elsewhere.

Pros: huge portions

Cons: food quality, poor menu, pricey

Good Food, Bad Price - Edit

I am at the eaton centre regularly, and a few months ago I decided to check out Urban Herbivore. I ordered a sandwich and salad. The sandwich was good, but the salad was mediocre. I was very unhappy with the price. I think I paid around $11, which was insane for a food court meal. I've debated returning to try another item, but the price has scared me off.

Pros: Tasty Sandwich, Good Service

Cons: Expensive, Mediocre Salad, Area is too noisy
