These eateries are 100% vegan, but even meat-eaters will want to eat here too.
KB&CO, 10223 104 Street
Casual conscious eats is the mantra at KB&CO where you’ll feel instantly healthy after eating. The quick-casual was one of the first vegan restaurants to sprout up in the core so it has dedicated customers who queue up all day long. It has your standard wraps and salads but there’s nothing regular about the taste. Everything is exploding with flavour from the tahini and beet wrap to our favourite, the Nori Glory salad loaded with mixed greens, coconut rice, red pepper, cucumber, nori, avocado and micro-greens. Stop by in the morning for oat and hemp seed berry waffles, or a delicious smoothie.
Copper Branch, 10316 Jasper Avenue
Canadian quick-casual Copper Branch will satisfy committed vegans with its approachable menu that might even fool meat eaters. But make no mistake the burgers, chili, soup and power bowls are 100 percent plant-based. The spicy black bean burger is a hearty affair, but it’s worth ordering the buffalo wings to taste the range of Copperbranch dishes.
Cinnaholic, 10075 109 Street
The folks at Cinnaholic know that if they even mention vegan, dessert lovers of all kind may shy away. So we think it’s a brilliant marketing move that they’re hush about their vegan cinnamon rolls. You can select from their signature rolls or build your own, choosing from 20 different frosting and about as many toppings.
