Victoria is a wonderful city for vegetarian and vegan food. I set myself a challenge to eat out in non-veggie cafés and restaurants to see if their menus were vegetarian friendly and there was always at least one vegetarian option that wasn’t a leafy green salad. So I was pleasantly surprised. That aside, for this post I’m focusing on three restaurants and cafés that are solely vegetarian or vegan. If you ever visit Victoria do check them out. My favourite was Café Bliss.
Café Bliss is situated at 556 Pandora Avenue. It opened its doors in 2008 with an ethos of nourishment and bliss. It serves a fantastic menu of smoothies, raw foods, fresh juices and yummy salads. I recommend their apple cinnamon sprouted buckwheat granola for breakfast.
The Lotus Pond is situated at 617 Johnson Street. They believe that vegetarianism is more that just a living style. It can also be a window through which great things can be seen from the small. Their Lunch Buffet is pretty much the best lunch special in the city. The decoration is simple and the food is delicious.
Green Cuisine is located in the lovely Market Square, downstairs. They’ve been serving Victoria’s best vegetarian food for over 25 years. The food is filling, hearty, healthy and you pay by weight.
Do you like vegetarian or vegan food? Are you a vegetarian or vegan? Are there other vegetarian and vegan eateries in Victoria that I’ve missed?
