5 Spots For Vegan and Vegetarians in Barrie

Barrie is home to a number of incredible vegan and vegetarian restaurants. These eateries have the potential to convert curious carnivores with delicious vegan burgers, plant-based lasagna and barbecued jackfruit dishes that rival the real thing. Scroll on for five places to get your nonmeat on.

The Vegan Pantry

100% Vegan (or, as their hats and Tshirts say…Vegan AF) the Vegan pantry on Ross street offers up a packed menu of baked goods and hearty meal items.

You can dive into their menu of vegan and gluten-free sweets, including brownies, doughnuts, Nanaimo bars, and cookies. Plus, everything is made with refined sugar-free and doesn’t use any artificial colours or flavours.

On the savoury side, to-go meals include pizza, burgers, lasagna, lentil bowls, and cauliflower wings.

Valiant’s Eatery

With a menu ranging from hot dogs, to chili, to classic sandwich orders like Cubano, Pastrami and Turk’y club, Valiant’s on Dunlop is a go to for lighter but tasty food fare.

For those enjoying this extended BBQ season, they also have a full selection of vegan, plant-based meat and sauces to fill the grill. And don’t forget about their newer dessert-esque items, like donuts.

Ripe Juicery

A destination of choice for plant based and vegan juice indulgences, Ripe has a rainbow of healthy, invigorating drink choices and meals.

Kale caesar salad, quinoa squash, and hummus with raw crackers are just some of the menu items to  compliment the juice lineup. Drink Your Salad, Morning Sunshine and Iron Man are just a few of the cleverly named energy boosting sipping choices.


Combining delectable Mexican dishes with plant based and gluten free recipes, Mexhico is relatively new to the Barrie foodie scene. But well worth a visit.

The menu sparkles with dishes like “fish” tacos, “chikkn” fajitas, stuffed burgers and vegan beer.

To add another level of authenticity, the owners of Mexhico travelled to Mexico specifically to buy the hand-painted plates and bowls, called talavera; each one signed by the artist.

Lazy Tulip

Anyone who has spent some time downtown knows what an inviting spot Lazy Tulip is. They’ve since moved locations, but their terrific lineup of entrees remains intact.

The cafe/eatery provides some of the tastiest vegan and plant based fare in the region, including lunch and brunch favs.

Tulip hash, Poached Avocado Toast and Scrambled Organic Tofu are just a couple of the midday nosh specialties. And they have a plethora of tasty teas and coffees for after.
