I'm in Ottawa, on the border of Quebec



I visit Quebec all the time because my bf is from Quebec City. I'm learning French too, I'm actually getting quite good!



We just ate at St. Hubert in Gatineau for supper today! I had the salade St. Hubert and the fries. Good salad! Artichoke hearts and palm hearts!

I have seen the French's at many Dollar Stores. The other two should be available at Maxi, Loeb, Loblaws, Sobey's, and even some dépanneurs. MMmmmm - frites et biere, c'est ci bon.

Thanks a lot Sketchy!

I also found a place in the Eaton Center (I think) that claims to use vegetarian sauce. I'll look it up and get back to you guys

Anyone been to La Cage aux Sports?



I got invited there but looking at the menu I don't really want to go, at least not to eat.

I paid a visit to Montrèal a week or so ago and was delighted to find several vegetarian restaurants there.



I put together a Google Map so that I can better visualize where they all are:

I took photos (with a real camera and film) and will provide reviews sometime in the future...

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
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Here is info. on another really large Natural Food Store from http://www.living-foods.com/ Not sure if they are Vegan. However, worth checking it out. Please share experience if anyone here has been there. Thanks.



The biggest health food store in town I think. The upper level is for the cosmetics and health products, while the lower level is for the food, including a lot of organic fresh veggies and fruits.

Place Laurier in Quebec City (Ste-Foy) has a nice health food store, surprisingly called Aliments de Santé Laurier . They have a nice selection of health and beauty products, as well as breads, pre-packaged vegan food, and produce. And they have lots and lots of non-vegan cheeses to tempt me . It's the biggest (and only, actually) health food store I've seen in Quebec City.

This is a copy over from another forum for the benefit of all here ...



I am so excited to hear about vegan naan!! One place that hasn't been mentioned is La Sala Rosa, on Milton, which is vegetarian but vegan friendly. The service is slow but the vegan chocolate cake is delicious!



For people who don't know about it, Organic McGill is a co-op concept at McGill... during the year you can order a local organic veg basket for around $10 and pick it up the following week. Not _that_ cheap, but the difference between one of their leeks and one from the supermarket (for instance) is amazing. They also have ethiopian pastries for sale, which are all vegan. The sweet potato bread is amazing. Just amazing. My usual dilemma is whether I deserve one, because I usually just munch through the whole thing in a couple of hours. It runs in the Shatner building, second floor, and they also had a couple of cooking classes last year. Then of course there's Midnight Kitchen which serves vegan lunches every day for a nominal fee (pay $2 or whatever you want, bring your own tupperware). The food is food that would otherwise have gone to waste, so not gourmet, but the couple of times I've been there was a pretty decent beans + rice component. I believe Concordia has something similar called The People's Potato, although I've never been there.



For what it's worth, there's a smoothie place in Galeries du Parc which seems to serve a non-dairy smoothie (I haven't tried it yet but I asked about it once) and, since we were talking about Vegenaise long ago when I first joined the forums, I usually buy it at Eden (also Galeries du Parc). Bioterre (St Viateur) and Rachel Bery (St Laurent) also stock it, along with other goodies.



I am really glad this thread came up - there are places I haven't even been! And I second all the Chuch obsessing... sadly I almost always order the same thing when I go there At Aux Vivres you can also buy their veg butter and dragon sauce etc (the dragon bowl is my favourite)in bulk in containers which are made of corn starch and therefore compostable.

I lived almost entirely on People's Potato for about 4 months, when my student loan was delayed and I had no money for food. The food is not only vegan, it's also halal and kosher!



They do ask for donations, but don't require it. There's just a little box you can drop change into. I try to keep a little tab in my mind... they suggest $2 per meal, so if I get a free lunch one day I put in $4 the next. But it's not enforced, that's just my own personal thing. :P



They are so compassionate there, that if you bring your own tupperware at the end of the week or something, they'll fill it up so you have food for the weekend. They're also always looking for volunteers!



And last but DEFINITELY not least, THE FOOD IS FANTASTIC!!!

OK, I will. Right now I am staying on Queen Mary's street. I need to figure out the metro system and stuff still. Are there any fun get togethers? I see they are having that big green fair tomorrow, so I'm going to check that out:

Sure has been hot here the last few days! I'm currently apartment hunting if anyone knows of a veg-friendly neighborhood or apartment.

I couldn't believe that either, but still grateful for Canada's health care. I waited in emergency at McGill for about 10 hours, and finally saw the doctor at 4am..

I think the average emergency room wait time in Quebec is like 14-15 hours. That's definitely higher than the national average. People in Gatineau often come across to Ottawa when they need to go to the ER!
