Yes! I went there last spring their store is in a large barn, just down the main driveway. I'm not sure when they are open, I went there on a Sunday afternoon I believe. Their goods are amazing, you should make a point of checking it out.

Fleishmanns. I am not 100% sure of the spelling, but it is all vegan. I live in southern Ontario, so I am sure that you will be able to find it in your area!

i've had no problems getting Earth Balance margarine from the health food stores here and in North Bay. it's expensive but good.

but yeah there's one kind of fleischman's i've used that was ok, it was 2 teeny tubs in a cardboard package, and i think it was the "light" one. i decided for the cost and the amount it was probably a better deal to buy the expensive earth balance plus i like it better.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale

Hey Ontarians! I'll be in London in a few weeks time, just for the day, visiting my mother in the hospital. I checked online and found a restaurant called Maggie's on King St. that offers a vegan menu. Does anyone know if this place is still around? I can't find a date on the website so it might be really old. If you've eaten there, let me know what you thought and if it's closed, can you suggest another place for my sister and I to eat before we drive back to Windsor that night? I'd really like a veg*n restaurant so I can actually 'decide' what to order instead of being relegated to just two choices, usually a salad and veggie burger.

Thanks

Great, Danny. I'd appreciate it. I'll be in London on the 24th of January. Hoping it's a lot warmer than it is here in Regina. Supposed to get another blizzard today. YUCK!

Make the time to stop off in Toronto, there's a great selection of places to get veg food as well as solely veg restaurants.

Thanks newstars but it isn't a pleasure trip. I'll be in Windsor and my sister and I will be driving up to London to see my mom in the hospital. I'll be in Toronto in the summer to visit a friend and I'll check out the great veggie places then.

LOL! After deciphering the above post, I actually think the diner place is the one I'm thinking about. They have vegan crepes. Thanks for you hard work!!

Hey there -- Londoner here!



Yup -- Maggie's exists! I haven't been, but they do advertise a vegan menu (they are NOT strictly a Vegan restaurant though). "Maggie's, 145 King St., 519-679-6244" It is right downtown, across from Covent Garden Market.



I do hope your mother is okay. What Hospital is she in? Regardless, I can tell you she is in great care -- London Hospitals are TOP NOTCH!



Also, there are lots of East Indian and Thai places with veg*n choices. Do let me know if you need any directions getting anywhere while you are in London.



Good luck.

Hey Taz!

Thanks for the post.



My mother is at a psychiatric geriatric hospital, I believe called St. Jopeph's. She's a permanent resident there and I come back to Ontario once every few months to visit her and my family in Windsor. I had to move out to Regina last year for my job.

Thanks for letting me know about Maggie's. I know where Covent Garden Market is. I went to Fanshawe years ago so I'll be sure to post a review.

My sister and I usually stop at this grungy little diner on Dundas that has the very best french fries but I'm trying to watch what I eat in the new year so fries are out!!

Thanks again for the info. Much appreciated.

Glad to provide some info, MollyCat. I work downtown and need to go to the Market today at lunch, so I will try to pop into Maggie's to check out the menu for you. I'll post what I find out!

Well, look what I found....



http://www.maggies.ca/



and...



http://www.maggies.ca/MenuA.html



Hope this helps! Now, I am hungry! Must... go... get... FOOD.... hmmmm.. Maybe it's time to try Maggie's!



****

I just had the Baked Vegetarian sandwich ($7.99). It was very tasty with wonderful fresh ingredients (very heavy on the garlic though -- which my poor partner will regret! ). I chose to have mine on a pita (rolled in the pita); choices were: pita, bread, bun, toast, bagel. It was rather messy on the pita as it was rolled but the ends were opened!



They have an entire section of the menu designated to Veg*n. Prices seemed a little high, but compared to other restaurants in London in the "same category" (casual-fine), I'd say the prices were fair. It's certainly no dive! The restaurant had a "spanish cafe" feel to it (not that I have ever been to a spanish cafe, but I "felt" that was what they were going after! ). It was a very comfortable environment.



Would I recommend them? Yes

Would I go again? Yes

Would I go often? Probably not -- I don't eat out a lot due to funds or lack thereof! :-)

Tazlah, thanks a lot for the information! I've lived in London for a year now, and the one vegetarian/vegan restaurant I'd managed to find (via UWO's newspaper) ended up being closed down. I can't wait to give Maggie's a try.

Check out my website! www.newstarsclothing.com



We're in Toronto, but we don't have a store. As for our "I Love Tofu" shirts, we're really low on stock. So let me know what you want via PM and i'll let you know if we have it. Plus i'll hook you up with a VB member discount.



I hope i don't get in trouble for advertising. But we do sell "I Love Tofu" shirts.

i went to Maggie's in september for my birthday, it was excellent. they have omni vegetarian and vegan options. which works out cause my bf is omni, and doesn't like to try all my "wierd" vegan stuff lol so i didn't want to drag him somewhere totally veg. i had the italian eggplant relish and it was verrrrrrry good. and the prices aren't too bad considering the portions are decent. like not enormous but a good size. i didn't finish all mine. it comes with greens and big tomato chunks and even some berries on the side. and free appetizer (vegan)

the coffee was even pretty good. i recommend it
