Vegetarian Directory Updates – May 2014

New Vegan Location Boon Burger Café (114 Dunlop St. E., Barrie, www.boonburger.ca,) is opening in Barrie! Canada’s first exclusive Vegan Burger Café currently has two successful locations in Winnipeg, and will be making their Ontario debut this July. Boon features traditional burger joint classics made vegan and entirely from scratch from quality, sustainable ingredients. “We are very proud to offer a 100% animal-free, plant based menu… We compost and recycle most of our waste. We use NO deep fryers and NO microwaves. A large part of our menu is organic, local or fair-trade, with new ingredients being added regularly.” There are four varieties of patties that make up the whopping 13 burgers on the menu, which include favourites like the Boon, the Thanksgiving, and the Buddha. Also enjoy Poutine, Softserve, and their House salad (apparently the dressing is to die for).
