Toronto Has it All

By Barbi Lazarus, Donor and Volunteer Resources Coordinator If you’re vegetarian, follow social media, and like to eat, by now you’ve certainly heard about the newest vegan bakery to open up, Through Being Cool. Blog posts and instagram shots galore have been spreading like wildfire, so I won’t go into too many details that others have already described oh-so-well about how fantastic their goodies are (you can just do a quick google search for Through Being Cool Vegan if you want the drool-worthy details). I had the pleasure of stopping by on my day off a couple weeks ago. As I sat on the subway home just staring at my bag of food in anticipation, I was suddenly overcome with a sense of awe, wonderment and excitement about where Toronto’s veg scene is at, and the fact that certainly this must represent a growing demand for vegetarian options. For those who think that vegans live with any sort of deprivation, let me just summarize where we stand here in Toronto: Donuts, apple fritters, pretzels and ooey gooey pizza buns? Check. (That would be the delicious spread from Through Being Cool you see on the right). Read More

Vegetarian Directory Updates – April 2013

New Vegan Restaurants and Eatery As we reported back in December, Fressen, a long time vegan restaurant was closing, but we kept hearing about a new concept restaurant that was in the works. Welcome Grasslands (478 Queen St. W., 416-504-5127)  same location, new decor, brand new menu!  Meshell blogs her experience here: “We went on Day Two (03/28/2013) with a troupe of hungry vegans, and ready to try new and exciting things. On first glance it looked a lot like the old menu, but then there were several delightful differences. As promised there was a much more substantial cocktail menu, and a different dessert (though our server assured us more options were coming – as this was just the beginning.)” This is an edit. Rawlicious writes: “We are happy to announce the opening of the newest Rawlicious in Guelph! It will be located in a delightful spot in downtown Guelph at 60 Carden Street (across from City Hall) and construction is under way. We will be open May/early June.” superfood eateries (268 Adelaide St. W., 647-827-9656) “is the world’s first gourmet, handcrafted, chef-inspired takeout to serve completely organic, plant-strong,… Read More
