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.

Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
