Family-Friendly Vegetarian Restaurants in Ottawa


Where: The Glebe and Trainyards

Ottawa’s first falafel and hummus restaurant has a mouth-watering menu filled with a variety of hummus dip plates, falafel sandwiches, salads, and soups. Look for their kids meal offering as well. With two locations in Ottawa, you can visit for take out or order up your favourite combo on DoorDash or UberEats.

Pure Kitchen

Where: Westboro, Kanata, Preston Street, Elgin.

For years, Pure Kitchen has been serving vegans (and non-vegans) with dishes bursting with flavour in their restaurants (with several locations in Ottawa) for take out and delivery, and at their grab-and-go counter. Their kids’ menu is plentiful for your mini vegetarian or vegan too (with offerings like the mini walnut burger or the grilled cheese with their choice of cheddar or cashew cheese).

What would we order? Their Radical Cauliflower Wings in one of two flavours: Korean BBQ or Buffalo. Can’t decide? Order the half and half.

Copper Branch

Where: Albert Street, Nepean (Strandherd Drive)

The plant-based Copper Branch has two locations in Ottawa (and is available for delivery and catering.) Their extensive menu has something for every hunger person in your family including kid menu options like the Kids Grilled Cheeze or vegan Chick’N fingers.

What would we order? The Mushroom Galaxy burger with a Portobello mushroom, aioli, zucchini,caramelized onions and lettuce.

The Green Door

Where: Main Street

Ottawa’s oldest vegetarian restaurant is back with buffet service. Their dishes range from stir fry, lasagna, quiche, oodles of salads and desserts galore. You can preorder from their bakery with 12 hours notice, order something from the freezer, and order online for take out. If you are planning to eat in the restaurant at the buffet, reservations are recommended because of limited seating.

What would we order? The spiced lentil patties with herbed tahini sauce looks delicious, and it wouldn’t be hard to convince us to add a piece of cheesecake to our order as well.

The Table

Where: Wellington Street West

The Table Restaurant (near the Great Canadian Theatre Company) offers a tasty menu with sundried tomato wraps, veggie pizza, Tofu kabobs, fritters, and salads. They also offer a weekly dinner combo with a variety of bites combined into one ready-to-eat meal. Prepared food, fridge and freezer options, and dessert can all be ordered for pick up online.

What would we order? The Jackfruit tacos sound like they’d have the flavour and crunch we crave.

La Belle Verte

Where: Gatineau

La Belle Verte in Gatineau includes a menu with raw and vegan choices as well as their vegetarian offerings. Start your meal with their soup of the day then dive into one of their menu items like the Athena salad with beet, carrots, red pepper, cabbage, olives and more and move onto one of their burgers, sandwiches or a selection of steamed bowls with veggies and Tofu served on your choice of rice or noodle.

What would we order? The King Burger with a lentil patty, tomatoes, onions, carrots, mushrooms, peppers, pickles, sauerkraut, chipotle mayo, and more!
