Think of the most beautiful, picturesque cafe you can think of - that's Sorelle & Co. Not only is it the cutest spot you can ever imagine, but their food is to die for. It's vegan and completely free of of nuts, gluten, soy, sesame, and preservatives. I promise you that this place is so much more than the decor - the food is unbelievably good. It's the perfect spot for a girls brunch!
Easy meals to pickup when you're on the go, or on your lunch break at work. They have a few locations in food courts in office buildings, which is awesome that vegan meals are mainstream. They make delicious bowls, and their desserts are natural and tasty. You can dine-in at their location on Spadina, and they have a delicious brunch on weekends.
Vegan comfort food, and half their menu is desserts (!). It's very casual, and low-key, and they have a patio in the summer! Their desserts are pretty intense - a great place to go for dessert after eating dinner!
The name is misleading... it's definitely not a cafe. It is, however, really delicious authentic asian food. The dumplings are delicious, as is anything else on the menu! A great place to go if you're craving real Chinese food. Nearly everything is vegan, and the ones that aren't are marked for containing eggs or dairy.
Probably the most beautiful (vegan) restaurant in Toronto. It has serious LA vibes with high ceilings, big windows, and palm-leaf wallpaper. It's the perfect place to go for a date night, a girls night, a birthday brunch... really anything. It's also a great place to go with non-vegans, as the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is really great. You MUST try their cauliflower tots!!
Your classic greasy-vegan meal. Everything is delicious (even my teenage non-vegan brother agrees), but don't make any plans after because you won't be able to move. It's the comfort food that you're so grateful has been made vegan. I'm a huge fan of the UnChicken Burger with buffalo sauce.
Her shop in the beaches is the cutest cafe type of restaurant, with lots of natural light, a few tables out front in the summer, and a good amount of seating inside. Her cupcakes are DELICIOUS, and she makes a variety of flavours including a bunch of gluten-free ones. If you're lucky enough to arrive on a day when they've made croissants, don't even think about not ordering one (they're AMAZING!). She also has a few savoury items (like sandwiches and flatbeads) which are pretty good! You can also order cakes from her in advance for all occasions! I have a real soft-spot for Tori because she made my wedding cake :)
Bloomer's is a low-key pub(ish) style restaurant. They have board games that you can play while you wait for your meal, and it's a really casual environment. Their puled jack sandwich is really good, as is their poutine made with sunflower seed cheese. If you're lucky enough to get there before their baked treats sell out, you NEED to get something (the donuts are seriously unbelievable).
