Vegan in Montréal

Montréal, the "Paris of North America," has beaucoup to offer visitors of the veg persuasion.

Montreal is an herbivore's dream, brimming with delightful cafés, charming farmers' markets, scenic parks, seasonal festivals and street fairs, and more than a dozen vegetarian restaurants. Autumn is the perfect time to visit; the heat has given way to mild temperatures, the leaves explode in a symphony of color, and the city's social calendar is still on hyper drive.

Other veg-friendly must-visit destinations in the province of Quebec's largest city include:

  1. Tea time at Camellia Sinensis
