Have been going to this restaurant since it first appeared in Toronto. Now I am sure to get there at least once or twice when I am in town. Tofu tacos, sweet potato or regular fires (or Dragon style) with miso gravy. Delicious! Rice bowls always good and filling. And do have a piece of chocolate cake. It is by... More

I had a great experience here with my wife. The service was great, and even though we had to wait, the food was delicious and it was worth it. I highly recommend their chocolate cake.

Came here for lunch - there was no meat on the menu much to my surprise. The items looked too fresh and appetizing to eat so I decided to look elsewhere. Going to try another Fresh location, maybe I can get a steak there.

The food is so delicious. I can't stop thinking about it. Went back twice. And took juice back for each morning at hotel. You definitely don't need to sacrifice flavour for a vegan meal. I am neither vegan or vegetarian but enjoy both cuisines. I love that they weren't discriminating against us because we also eat meat. Our server was... More

I have been here 5 or 6 times now, with my fiance, sister and mother in law to be (all meat eaters) Really nice varied menu, not just salads. I try to have something different each time. My fiance who is a huge meat eater really had no interest coming here initially but was blown away and satisfied by the... More

If you want to pay $12 for a bowl of rice - this is your place. It's so overpriced and they are so chintzy with the good stuff - the avocados, grilled veggies, goat cheese - you know, the stuff with all the nutrition. For onion rings and dip it comes to like $11 and I'm not exaggerating - and... More

Wow, what a truly amazing place to eat-made our trip to Canada! A great range of foods which even surprised family who usually would have eaten meat, how tasty, fresh and healthy it was. Friendly and helpful staff-would love this to be created near home!

Breakfast on Sunday: a frothy beet juice, ginger & nutmeg frappe, gluten-free blueberry almond pancakes with a choice of vegan butter or maple syrup. When in Canada what would you do? Maple, of course! This was a delicious and hardy breakfast and there was a line to the door of diners waiting for tables. Beside me a family spoke Portuguese.... More

Fantastic quality food in a great location. Have the club wrap and you're guaranteed that's the best damn thing you'll ever put in your mouth.

Went on a recommendation from a local direct after arriving from London and wanting "something veggie". Not veggie myself but wanting to eat something other than steak whilst in Toronto. Very busy when arrived but table found within 10 mins. Friendly staff and the biggest assortment of vegan dishes I'd come across. Ordered vegan poutine with the "cheese" on the... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
