July Veg Guide Updates
Hello everyone! Welcome to the strangest July on record. We’re happy to announce that despite the weirdness and uncertainty we’ve been experiencing, there are a lot of new restaurants for you to check out in this months update!
Read on to see what’s new!
142 James St N, in Hamilton
Dolled Up Desserts now has a storefront location in Hamilton! Find all your gluten-free favourites from veg fests, including their amazing potato chip rice krispies, as well as soft-serve ice cream, savouries, and more! We can’t wait to visit.
160 Baldwin St.
Torontonians have long wished that Dar Nabati in Oakville was closer. And now it is… sort of! Eat Nabati is the Toronto location of this great Middle-Eastern food spot. Expect to find great pita wraps and platters, as well as desserts in this takeout spot. Take your food to Bellevue Square Park and enjoy great food in the sun!
22 Lakeshore Rd. W, Oakville
Gelato shops usually have a few flavours that are vegan friendly. But this gelato shop in Oakville has recently converted to ALL vegan! Their flavours sound amazing and innovative; think twizzlers, nutella, s’mores, rhubarb, and more, available in cups, cones, sandwiches, and even cakes! We hear tell of long lines for this deliciousness, so come prepared to wait–we’re sure it’ll be worth it!
245 Greenwood Ave.
This new vegan deli made international headlines earlier this spring, when the owner purchased the old Strickland Meats butcher shop (closed after 45 years) to transform into a vegan space. Opening in August, Jinglepear Deli promises a mix of prepared foods, salads, and meats–all made from plants.
GTA delivery via app
A new delivery app for vegan options in the city! Plant-Be offers delivery of pantry goods, prepared foods, cheese, and more from businesses like Stokes Cheese, Yam Chops, Feel Good Guru, Dar Nabati, and more. Order on the app, and have it delivered tomorrow!
29 Barton St., E, Hamilton
Featuring a menu inspired by principles of Ayurveda, Sookham offers curries, bowls, sandwiches, drinks, and more. Everything is vegan, primarily organic, locally sourced, and made fresh in-house.
Virtual kitchen via delivery platforms
Sweet Chops was going to be a dine-in restaurant on Queen W. But then COVID-19 hit, and they decided to launch as a delivery-only kitchen for now. The menu is entirely vegan, featuring delish looking items like pulled jackfruit sandwich, giant cauliflower shawarma bowls, and more!
335 Yonge St. (in the food market on Gould)
Vegan comfort food is the name of the game at Sweet Po. Poutine, latkes, mac & cheese, tofu kebabs, and many other comfort food staples are available here! Eat at the benches in the market, or take your food to the nearby Ryerson Campus and eat by Lake Devo! If that doesn’t sound like a good enough reason to visit, Sweet Po gets its name from the owners’ bunny–we love it!
966 Danforth Ave.
This long standing pub on the Danforth has a new menu; it’s all vegetarian and mostly vegan! While the pub isn’t open at the moment, you can still order takeout or delivery from this delish menu, which has beyond burgers, falafel, nachos, garlic bread and more pub classics, but vegan! It’s a great option of east-enders!
160 Baldwin Ave.
Veggie D’Light has a new location, a few doors down from its old one! In addition to their menu of proteins, grains and veggies, Veggie D’Light now offers pizza! We can’t wait to visit the new location.
1598 King St., W.
Toronto’s artisanal vegan cheese vendor has opened their retail shop! Located at King and Roncesvalles, Wandering Deli’s new shop is tiny but full of good things! In addition to a full cheese menu featuring rotating flavours and staples, you’ll also find crackers, preserves, meats from Sausage Party–basically all you need to make the perfect grazing board for your next party (or in Sarah’s case, party for one, while watching Netflix!). They take orders for pickup too!
Sorelle and co.
We’re sad to report that Sorelle and Co. has closed their last location in Vaughan. We’ll miss their GF treats!
