Each year, we ask our readers to weigh in on the best restaurants in Calgary with an online voting ballot. Here are the winners and runners-up for Best Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurants in Calgary.



The Coup

This vegetarian restaurant has been a favourite with herbivores and omnivores alike since 2004. Striving to offer a healthy and sustainable dining experience, The Coup supports local suppliers and farmers while curating a food and cocktail menu that is colourful, flavourful and unique.

924 17 Ave. S.W., 403-541-1041,, @thecoupcalgary



Hearts Choices Cafe Market

From Thai dishes to burgers and sandwiches, Hearts Choices Cafe Market offers hearty vegan fare at reasonable prices. You can also pop in to grab some food for home — there are takeaway fridges stocked with vegan dishes and ingredients to transfer the taste of Hearts Choices Cafe Market to your own kitchen.

4127 6 St. N.E., 403-276-2163; plus two more locations (Calgary Farmers’ Market South and Calgary Farmers’ Market West),, @heartschoices


Mondays Plant Café

Mondays Plant Café focuses on using local ingredients for its plant-based fare, which includes menu items like zucchini lasagna (made with zucchini noodles and a cashew ricotta) and raw tacos made with a sunflower seed “meat.” There is also a selection of plant-based pastries and café beverages to choose from.

208 4 St. N.E., 825-222-9080,, @mondaysplantcafe


The Allium

The Allium, which operates as a worker cooperative, is a great destination for elevated, plant-based fare that is meant for sharing. Pair dishes like chickpea fries, crispy fried mushrooms and squash latkes with delicious cocktails, wine or beer. Consider popping by on a Sunday to try the $50 family-style, prix-fixe menu.

211A 12 Ave. S.W., 403-264-5416,, @alliumcalgary


Vegan Street

What began as a food truck in 2018 is now a thriving restaurant and lounge serving up plant-based comfort food in Inglewood. This location was previously known as Vegan Street Taco Bar, but recently consolidated with its now-shuttered sister restaurant in the Beltline to offer a revamped menu full of specialties from both restaurants. Split an order of mushroom “kalamari,” or catch up with friends over plant-based tacos and margaritas.

1413 9 Ave. S.E., 403-453-3282,, @veganstreetyyc
