Monastère des Augustines

Looking for meatless menus filled with fresh local flavours, here’s a list of restaurants that are passionate about healthy energizing ingredients. Whether for raw, vegan or more sophisticated vegetarian meals, Québec has many multicoloured options.

    Le Don

    Le Don is the only restaurant in Québec City that’s fully vegan, without a single animal product on the menu. From the Thai soup to the raspberry and beet vegan cheesecake to the decadent peanut ice cream banana split, chef Anne-Marie Grenier knows how to surprise her diners. The patio is overflowing with green while the dining room is modern, eclectic, and chic, with a colourful mural by local artist Berko.

    You’ll be charmed by this restaurant from the moment you walk in, but the true seduction comes with chef Sabryna Lemay’s smart, inventive cooking. Here, everything is fresh, local, and prepared in‑house. Labneh, black garlic, and chanterelles are among the host of delicious products on the menu. Kick off the dining experience with a fruity mocktail as you awaken your senses and prepare your taste buds to receive the unique flavours of the Québec terroir. The vegetarian and vegan options here are to die for, especially at brunch and lunch.

    Monastère des Augustines

    The Monastère des Augustines’ restaurant offers raw and vegetarian dishes based on the principles of mindful eating. Local, colourful flavours served in a truly contemplative setting. Love the self-serve counter featuring salads, fruit, vegetables, sprouts, nuts and grains. Do indulge in a healthy infusion inspired by the Augustinian sisters.

    Bols et Poké

    Hawaiian-inspired pokes and bowls including the vegan Mahalo: Soba noodles, edamames, marinated kale, cashews, tofu, avocado, etc. Foodie tip: Order to go and eat on Sacrilege’s beautiful patio, you’ll get 15% off a pint of beer!

    Freshii is a healthy fast-food chain that recently opened in Montcalm offering many vegan options, including frozen treats. Customize your own meal: breakfast bowls, lunch wraps, energy salads and more. Love the Buddha satay’s spicy peanut sauce as well as the truly aromatic lemongrass soup.

    Who's up for a wheat grass shooter! A local-friendly organic-certified grocery store where you’ll find Kombucha on tap, a smoothie and juice bar as well as a wide array of healthy snacks, local fruit and vegetables. Also feed your mind with newspapers, magazines, books and music.

    Les Botanistes

    Located within the Floralies Jouvence garden centre in Cap-Rouge, this restaurant is an ode to vegetables, herbs, and flowers in all their edible forms. The showstopper here is the plancha barbecue imported from Germany. Chef Pierre Joubaud sings the praises of vegetables, bringing out their many delicious subtleties in an inspiring, light-filled space.

    Other Suggestions

    Most restaurants in Québec now offer vegan options, but don’t hesitate to call ahead to confirm. Among my favourites is le Clocher Penché that always has a most colourful vegetarian dish that can easily be made vegan. Also, Poutineville in Saint-Roch will let you indulge in Québec’s iconic poutine with a vegan recipe made with Daiya cheese; Nina Pizza has also created two vegan pizzas: Nuda non nuda and the Piena di verdure.
