Ah, vegan food. Some people eat it as a lifestyle; some people eat it to stay healthy; some people just lowkey enjoy it. Whatever the case, can we all just agree that vegan food is awesome? It takes a lot of innovation and talent to be able to create vegan dishes that taste great and are great for you.\nThankfully, Montreal has a whole lot of talent - and a whole lot of awesome vegan restaurants. Don't believe me? Well, friends, prepare to believe. Read on for Best Montreal Vegan Food Restaurants 2016.\nA photo posted by Laura ? (@lauulem) on Mar 13, 2016 at 3:24pm PDT\n1. Aux Vivres\n4631 Boulevard Saint-Laurent\nIf you're a vegan in Montreal and don't know about Aux Vivres, I'm sorry to say that you've been missing out. Big time. This Plateau eatery not only creates fresh and innovative meals for vegan Montrealers - like their super popular Dragon Bowl, or their beyond delicious Latke Burger - but also features desserts, energy balls, smoothies, juices, and much more. All in all? You need to get yourself there, ASAP.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by Valerie Carpentier (@carpentiervalerie) on Jun 10, 2015 at 10:10am PDT\n2. Vegan Rapide\n6206 Rue Sherbrooke O\nThis NDG spot has already been given some love for its awesome vegan pizza, but honestly, this Montreal vegan restaurant deserves infinite shout-outs. The food here is delicious: Consistently fresh and tasty, and with innovative dishes like their vegan pizza, Vegan Rapide is one big, huge win of an eatery.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by EmilyJade (@veganvibe) on Dec 6, 2015 at 10:42am PST\n3. Invitation V\n254 Rue Bernard O\nOkay, two words for you: Vegan brunch. Not only does Invitation V offer some of the most delicious and fresh vegan food in the city, but they also happen to offer a weekend vegan brunch option, which means that you and your vegan dining guests can feast on Invitation V's delicious meals twice in one day. (And, trust, one bit of their food, and you'll understand that eating here twice a day just isn't enough to satisfy the craving.)\nFacebook\nA photo posted by Ria Mae (@riaisawake) on Jan 20, 2016 at 2:41pm PST\n4. Sushi MoMo\n8 Avenue Duluth E\nVegan sushi, anyone? Sushi MoMo, located in the Plateau, offers up some of the most fresh and tasty rolls of sushi in the city. The kicker? It's all vegan. So, vegan friends, you can enjoy some awesome sushi rolls (some of which feature faux shrimp and truffle oil, to name a few), problem-free. Amazing? Amazing.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by jess (@jessszalai) on Nov 16, 2015 at 5:32pm PST\n5. Cafe Venosa\n4433 Rue Saint-Denis\nTruth time, friends. Cafe Venosa is amazing. This Montreal cat cafe serves up some fresh and delicious vegan grub, like their "Caprese" wrap, featuring tofu and pesto. Not only that, but - being a cat cafe - Venosa also has a bunch of adorable kitties roaming through the cafe for you to admire/play with, all wrapped up in a super friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Winning on all levels? You know it.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by lisa the viet vegan (@thevietvegan) on Nov 5, 2015 at 9:14am PST\n6. ChuChai\n4088 Rue Saint-Denis\nOkay, so ChuChai is technically vegetarian with an emphasis on being vegan-friendly, but their delicious, meat-free, Thai-inspired menu deserves all of the shoutouts. Seriously, ChuChai is amazing: They take all your favourite Thai dishes, replace the meat with vegetarian and/or vegan-friendly options, and voila. They create your new fave.\nWebsite\nA photo posted by @cybergirrl on Sep 19, 2015 at 12:04pm PDT\n7. Résonance Café\n5175 Av du Parc\nStraight up, this spot is amazing. Offering an unparalleled atmosphere, Resonance Cafe doubles as a concert venue and pretty much the most chill cafe you'll ever step into - and their food offerings? So tasty, so fresh, and all vegan. A sample of their amazing menu? A yogurt parfait featuring coconut-based yogurt; their "Avocado Roll Bowl", with nori, ginger, and other awesome things; and a BLT sandwich featuring tempeh bacon. I know, friends. I know.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by Lo (@espacevegane) on Mar 12, 2016 at 9:14pm PST\n8. Comptoir Urbain\n5003 Avenue Earnscliffe\nKnown mostly for selling all-natural products, it would be a crime if nobody mentioned Comptoir Urbain's delicious vegan food. This spot seriously wins all the points for blessing us with their delicious menu of vegan options in addition to the all-natural, sometimes very hard to find, products that they carry at their store.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by Julia (@juliaguk) on Apr 30, 2015 at 6:09pm PDT\n9. Sophie Sucree\n167 Ave des Pins E\nVegan? Fan of sweets? Not a problem, friends. Sophie Sucree features vegan ice cream, cookies, cakes... pretty much anything your heart could possibly desire. The pastries here are seriously delicious (the chocolate/raspberry cupcake is forever my fave) - good enough to convert any non-vegan, instantly, on the spot. Yes, that's the pure magic of the food at Sophie Sucree.\nFacebook\nA photo posted by STEPHANIA SARIDAKIS (@stephaniasaridakis) on Oct 8, 2015 at 1:22pm PDT\n10. Antidote Comptoir Vegane\n3459 Rue Ontario E\nOMG, yum. Not only is Antidote a seriously legit juice bar, but they also make some mind-blowing vegan food. On the menu? Vegan grilled cheese, vegan bagel and lox, vegan BLT sandwiches - vegan everything, basically, and with food so fresh and delicious, how could you say no?\nFacebook\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
