The top five vegetarian restaurants in Montreal


1. Aux Vivres

4631 boulevard Saint-Laurent

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

(514) 842-3479


This is one of Montreal's most well-known vegan restaurants. All of their food is vegan and organic when possible. They are open for lunch and dinner every day of the week and for brunch on the weekends. They offer delicious vegan sandwiches, salads, vegetable bowls, burgers, juices and smoothies. They even have amazing desserts that you would never believe are vegan! Their express menu and juice bar make it a great place to grab a quick meal on your lunch break, but if you prefer to sit with a menu that is possible as well! Some of the best items on their menu include the Dragon Bowl with shredded beet, carrot, daikon, lettuce, sprouts, red cabbage, dulse, toasted sesame seeds, dragon sauce and grilled tofu, the Cold Plate with  veggie paté, veggie lox, tofu cream, hummus and olive tapenade with bread, and finally the Vege Pate sandwich with veggie paté, mayo, tomato, lettuce and pickle. The prices are in the medium range.


2. Chu Chai

4088 rue St Denis (at Duluth)

Montreal Quebec



Chu Chai is a vegetarian Chai restaurant with meat alternatives that will make you think that you are eating the real thing! This is a restaurant that will satisfy even the most avid of meat eaters. The prices are a little on the higher-end of the scale, but the atmosphere in the restaurant is really nice and is a great place to bring a date. They have a vegetarian "duck" that is amazingly delicious, great Pad Thai and their vegetarian "beef" could fool a carnivore!


3. The Green Panther

2153 MacKay Street

Montreal Quebec



                The Green Panther (or Le Panthere Verte) is a casual and inexpensive vegan restaurant. They are open for lunch and dinner during the week, and for lunch on Saturdays. They are famous for their falafel. Their traditional falafel dish includes five falafels, cabbage, carrots, pickles, sauekraut, sprouts and tahini. They also have delicious smoothies. The Funky Monkey is a must-try with mango, banana, coconut milk and agave nectar. This is a great place for students to eat at because the prices are very reasonable and the food is still so healthy.
