Whether it’s for a cute brunch with your friends, or a lovely dinner date with your significant other, there’s no reason why we all shouldn’t incorporate more plant-based and environmentally friendly food options into our diet. We found the best new vegan places in Vancouver where you can indulge in plant-based and cruelty-free eats.
Plant-based food is the prevailing lifestyle in Vancouver. Not only are more restaurants and coffee shops offering plant-based options for vegetarians and vegans, but even fast-food restaurants like McDonalds and chain coffee shops like Tim Hortons have begun to include more vegetarian and vegan-friendly beverage and food choices on their menu.
While it is easier to eat out these days as a vegetarian or vegan compared to a couple of years ago, with all the new vegan joints popping up in the city, it can be a little difficult to keep track of all the new spots across town.
Vegan and vegetarian food is no longer just french fries and salad. It doesn't even have to be healthy, it can be just as indulgent as an old school cheeseburger and comes with a lot less guilt.
