I always get asked what foods I miss since going vegan and I would definitely say all breakfast-related food. But I am happy to report that there are so many more alternatives available and the options for vegan brunch in Calgary is constantly growing, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.
Here are my top picks for where to find vegan brunch in Calgary:
The Coup is the original vegetarian spot in Calgary that you can always count on. They have tons of vegan options for breakfast and my favourite is the Treehouse Sandwich with tofu (the tofu is unreal) and potatoes on the side, of course.
The Dandelion Cafe is completely vegan and has the best “chicken” and waffles I’ve ever had. Make sure you come very hungry. Hot tip: they don’t have a ton of seating so get there early if you can.
Another all-vegan cafe in Calgary, can you believe it?! And their No-eggs Benedict is available all day long! Other breakfast items include their bagel sandwich, scrambled tofu, and breakfast burrito.
At Raw Eatery everything is vegan and you will find the best avocado toast, lox toast, smoothies, and the sweetest ladies! The perfect spot for a healthy breakfast.
They have great vegan options on all their menus and I find that Blue Star is a good place to go with friends that are non-vegan. My favourite for brunch is their pulled jackfruit hash!
I remember when this was the first place in Calgary to have vegan pancakes! And they are so yummy! They have 5 things on their vegan menu that will not disappoint.
I recently went to Ladybug and I was pleasantly surprised by all their vegan options. This is what inspired me to create this blog post because a lot of people don’t know about it. They create the cutest latte art and I had a vegan benny. Highly recommend!
Pigeonhole just launched their breakfast menu and I haven’t had the chance to try it yet. But I was very excited to see that on their menu was a vegan coconut yogurt! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it.
Hearts Choices will make all your vegan brunch dreams come true. Vegan french toast, tofu scramble, a benny, and more! They are a completely vegan restaurant and you should visit them for lunch and dinner too!
I feel like Namo Cafe is a hidden gem. They have so many vegan options for brunch, it makes it very hard to choose. I had the Beyond Benny last time which has a Beyond Meat sausage patty on it. They also have vegan perogies which are very hard to find!
Not only does Madisons 1212 have vegan brunch but on weekends they have $1.50 mimosas! Yes please. Check out their vegan Huevos Rancheros, vegan benny, and jackfruit potato hash.
I love how fresh and healthy the food is at Seed N Salt. They have a variety of avocado toasts, smoothie bowls, oatmeal bowls and more!
I couldn’t find a photo but Red’s Diner has a vegan scramble available. And there are a few other places around the city that have a great avocado toast because who doesn’t love avocado toast… Vendome, Alforno, and Elate Lounge are places I would recommend!
