Tips / Destination

At first thought, you might be tempted to think Montréal has tons of vegan options. While the options are certainly plentiful, you still need to be thoughtful about where you go.


If you prepare for your visit and plan your trip, it is possible to spend your entire trip eating at delicious vegan establishments. In French-speaking Montréal, the word to look out for is “vegetalien.” If a menu designates an item as such, it is safe to eat for vegans.


Aux Vivres is a chain with a few different locations in Montréal. The restaurant has everything a visiting vegan could want, from malai kofta to golden pancakes, these institutions have something for everyone.


Antidote Bouffe Végane opened in 2014. The restaurant serves everything from a regular, week-long breakfast menu to brunch on the weekends. The restaurant also has local flavors like poutine and signature burgers.


For something a little lighter, Montréal is packed with coffee shops serving vegan sandwiches and lighter fare. BeBg Comptoir Végé is just one example.


For a comprehensive list of vegan and vegetarian restaurants, or restaurants with options, check out this website. There is always the chance listings miss a particular spot, so don’t be afraid to explore and see what you can find.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

Visiting Winter Destinations in the Summer

Some places appear better to visit in the winter. For example, anywhere known for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, will be less visited in the summer because those same people are going to spend their time at the beach or another destination. However, visiting these destinations during the off-seasons can show a side of the city or town that can’t be seen under piles of snow. It’s worth checking out a couple of these favorite winter destinations.
