"I could never imagine giving up meat and dairy!" You clearly have not had delicious vegan food, then.
It's always super refreshing to find good, delicious and hearty vegan restaurants in Ottawa. While Ottawa is definitely stepping up their foodie game, there is still a lack of vegan restaurants. However, there are a few amazing places and this is definitely one of them.
Grow Your Roots Cafe is one of those hidden gems in Ottawa that you hold onto. Their menu is 100% vegan, but it's not just salads and carbs. No no. Their menu ranges from tofu eggs benny to poutine to a hot 'chicken' sandwich. If you're thinking of going vegan, or want your friends to try vegan food they'll actually crave, this is the place to be.
Along with their delicious options, you can also get everything gluten free, nut free and soy free. Even better? They have Saturday breakfast and Sunday brunch available, and who doesn't want a vegan brunch?!
However, if you can only stop by for a little bit, you can also pick up sweet treats to take home. Vegan cookies, doughnuts, cinnamon buns, cheesecakes and SO MUCH MORE are waiting for you at Grow Your Roots Cafe. Seriously, how can you pass this up?!
Grow Your Roots Cafe is located at 220 Terence Matthews Crescent and they're open every day of the week except Mondays. Their hours vary, but no matter what time you go you'll find something on the menu that you love. For more information on hours, location and prices, check out their website here.
