10 Restaurants to Go to with Nice Vegetarian/vegan Options

For some people, eating vegetarian and/or vegan is something that is done daily. In contrast, others are flexitarians and will sometimes like to go for animal protein-free options. 

Beyond the salads, many restaurants in Quebec City have lovely dishes that are creative, satisfying, and varied. 

Although most of these addresses are not entirely vegetarian, we have fun discovering the different variations offered. 

Without further ado, here are 10 places we love to visit for a vegetarian meal.


97 Rue du Sault-au-Matelot, Québec, G1K 3X7

They are the first entirely vegan restaurant in Quebec City and trust us, they are worth a visit (or several). 

Located in Old Quebec in the lower town, we let ourselves be transported into their universe as we walked through the door. From the different cartoons on the wall, the graffiti, the leather benches, or the pink chairs at the bar, everything is there to make it eclectic and artistic.

The dishes are creative and remind us of the classics that we may know like dumplings, general Tao, burgers, ramen, pasta, and wonderful desserts. Don't leave without trying one of their cocktails with or without alcohol!

For more than 30 years, Chez Victor's burgers have conquered the people of the capital. Over the years, several branches have been opened and it is now possible to visit them if you are in Beauport, Cap-Rouge, Lebourgneuf, Lévis, Saint-Jean, and more.


Favoring first and foremost local products, you can savor the quality of the different items on their menu. Chez Victor is mainly known for its burgers, and you can find beautiful vegetarian and vegan creations. And this is even in homemade sauces like the Spicy VGnaise and the Chermoula VGnaise. 

For example, the verguez with a homemade spicy vegetable dumpling, VegNature's La Bûchette cheese (cashew nuts), lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, VGnaise chermoula, and hot mustard.

The vegan poutine and their quirky truffle cake are also very tasty.
