Vegetarian Directory Updates – February 2015

  New Locations Boon Burger (114 Dunlop St. E, Barrie, 705-718-4193, www.boonburger.ca), Canada’s very first all vegan burger café, will be opening a Toronto location! Although it is but a whispering at the moment, the word is out that the Winnipeg based vegan burger joint is staking out Toronto neighbourhoods for their next location. Boon opened their second location in Barrie last year, and their delicious, fresh menu of burgers, salads, soups and chili dogs has been a hit north of the city. “We are very proud to offer a 100% animal-free, plant based menu. With your support, it is our goal to make every ingredient sustainable. A large part of our menu is organic, local or fair-trade, with new ingredients being added regularly.” Your days of choosing from one meager veggie burger on a menu are over. In addition to 4 kinds of vegan patties to choose from and 14 varieties of burger, Boon also offers shakes and coconut based vegan soft serve. Needless to say, news of this new location is a very, very good thing for Toronto vegans. Follow Boon Burger Barrie on Facebook and Twitter for ongoing… Read More
