Meatless and wheatless, this spot cares about what people put into their bodies, and is great for grab-and-go grub that won’t weigh you down. On the menu: pesto quinoa, curry bowls, tempeh and bean chili, and more hearty meatless eats. If you want something ultra portable, any of their refreshing smoothies are sure to do the trick.

This little spot is tucked away in Kensington Market, and is it ever worth seeking out. Fresh veggie dishes packed with intense flavours are plated all together, allowing the spices to meet and mingle in the greatest of ways. One “lunch” will easily last you three meals, and the price is right. Pro tip: Go early in the day to snag some macaroni pie.

Say hello to healthy and tasty grub! This spot makes eating well as easy as 1-2-3. Little sister to Kupfert & Kim, this joint serves up pulled pineapple sliders, watermelon ceviche, avocado toast, and kimchi burgers — all are mouthwatering. But if there’s one thing we must recommend, it’s the Toasty Tempeh Sandwich.

Stepping into this “superfood snack cafe” is like striking vegan gold. Breads slathered with nut butters and fruit or avocado, and delicious smoothie bowls are on the menu. This is also one of the spots where you can find medicinal mushroom lattes in the city. Enjoy a hot elixir infused with chaga, lion’s mane, reishi or cordyceps. To your health!
