It's super hard to be vegan when no one else you know is. You want to go to every restaurant in Ottawa that's labelled vegan, but it's a trek to get someone to go with you. Not anymore!
I've gathered up a list of the best vegan-friendly restaurants in Ottawa. So every time you go out with your friends, you don't have to just order a salad. These places have real and hearty vegan meals that your friends will even love! And if they don't, no worries. They can order something that's not vegan. Everyone wins!
