This Vegan Restaurant Crawl Map Is Your Guide To A Meatless Montreal

I don't know about you, but Pub Crawls are so second-year university... and even then I wasn't very good and sticking it out till the end.

So, here's a much less harmful "crawl" for you... a Montreal Vegan Restaurant Crawl!

Yep, we've created a map to lead you to some of Montreal's best meat-free menus.

TL;DR Got a date with a vegan or vegetarian coming up? Whip out this map and you'll have no shortage of inspiration for where to go in Montreal to get a meat-free meal. Or two... The official map is at the very bottom of the article.

As more and more people decide to go meat-free, vegan and vegetarian restaurants continue to pop up around the city.

Which is great news if you're looking to cut down your meat consumption or you're already a full-fledged veg-head.

Eating out at vegan and vegetarian restaurants is a great way to get inspired and find new ways to avoid meat through creative dishes.

You'll also find a bunch of great foreign food spots on this list, which shows that vegan food doesn't have to be plain or boring.

Scroll down to take in our amazing meat-free map of vegan restaurants around Montreal.

These restaurants are either entirely vegan or include several great vegan options on their menu.

Starting in the Mile-End, we're going to head south down Parc before moving on to the Plateau...

1. Dépanneur Le Pick-Up

Starting uptown and working our way down, we have the Mile-End fan-favourite, Dep Le Pick-Up. While they aren't entirely vegan, you can find some awesome vegan options on their menu, like their faux-pulled pork sandwich, which is just too good not to include on this list.

Not only are they known for their awesome coffee and vegan delights, but they've also got live music on almost 24/7, so don't be afraid to linger before heading on to our next stop.

Check out their Facebook or full site for more info on artists and events.

2. La Lumiere du Mile End

Second stop on our crawl is La Lumiere du Mile End on rue Bernard Ouest.

They've got unreal soups and sandwiches along with a daily vegan, gluten-free special every day. Check them out on the weekends for brunch or stop in before work to grab an organic, fair trade coffee or chai latte.

Check out their Facebook page for hours and other details.

3. Café Résonance

Up on Parc at Fairmount, Café Résonance is a great place to grab a vegan bite while taking in some of the city's best jazz.

They also boast some beautiful desserts and knock-out cocktails.

Check out their Facebook or full site for more info on who's perfoming and when.

Moving on to the Plateau, there are several Montreal vegan staples not to be missed...

4. Lola Rosa on Parc

Lola Rosa is a vegan haven for all Montrealers, thanks to their super accessible pricing and four locations around the city.

While some vegan and veg restos charge crazy prices for their faux-meat creations, Lola Rosa keeps it casual and creative while still maintaining a reasonable price-point.

Check out their Facebook or full site to see all their wonderful vegan options and to find the location closest to you.

5. Aux Vivres on Saint-Laurent

One of Montreal's first meat-free restaurants, Aux Vivres is divisive in the Montreal veg community.

But considering their longstanding dedication to delivering fresh faux-meat fare to Montreal since 1997, they had to be included on this list.

Check out their Facebook or full site to find the location closest to you.

6. ChuChai Fine Cuisine

ChuChai is one of the best places to go if you're wrestling with a craving for Peking duck or ginger beef.

Their Asian-fusion inspired vegan dishes are delicious and perfect to share... or not.

Check out their Facebook or full site for all the details.

7. Nil Bleu

Montreal's favourite Ethiopian restaurant on Saint Denis offers vegan and vegetarian options in a super-authentic atmosphere.

Try the vegan platter for two, pictured above... and I'd suggest you skip the spoon and just go for it.

Heading down into the Village for stops eight, nine and ten...
