Looking for meatless menus filled with fresh local flavours, here’s a list of restaurants that are passionate about healthy energizing ingredients. Whether for raw, vegan or more sophisticated vegetarian meals, Québec has many multicoloured options. 

1 Accommodation Bio

Who's up for a wheat grass shooter! A local-friendly organic-certified grocery store where you’ll find Kombucha on tap, a smoothie and juice bar as well as a wide array of healthy snacks, local fruit and vegetables. Also feed your mind with newspapers, magazines, books and music.

2 Bols et Poké

Hawaiian-inspired pokes and bowls including the vegan Mahalo: Soba noodles, edamames, marinated kale, cashews, tofu, avocado, etc. Foodie tip: Order to go and eat on Sacrilege’s beautiful patio, you’ll get 15% off a pint of beer! Or order online and have your food served straight to your table!

Freshii is a healthy fast-food chain that recently opened in Montcalm offering many vegan options, including frozen treats. Customize your own meal: breakfast bowls, lunch wraps, energy salads and more. Love the Buddha satay’s spicy peanut sauce as well as the truly aromatic lemongrass soup.

Hardcore-veg heads will love Les gourmandises Louca in Faubourg Saint-Jean-Baptiste: a 100% vegan menu made from organic ingredients. This unsophisticated café is part of the Zero Waste movement selling (organic) ingredients in bulk.

The Monastère des Augustines’ restaurant offers raw and vegetarian dishes based on the principles of mindful eating. Local, colourful flavours served in a truly contemplative setting. Love the self-serve counter featuring salads, fruit, vegetables, sprouts, nuts and grains. Do indulge in a healthy infusion inspired by the Augustinian sisters.

Other Suggestions

Most restaurants in Québec now offer vegan options, but don’t hesitate to call ahead to confirm. Among my favourites is le Clocher Penché that always has a most colourful vegetarian dish that can easily be made vegan. Also, Poutineville in Saint-Roch will let you indulge in Québec’s iconic poutine with a vegan recipe made with Daiya cheese; Nina Pizza has also created two vegan pizzas: Nuda non nuda and the Piena di verdure.
