Vegetarian Restaurant in Halifax - - Name?

islandgirl Feb 1, 2005 11:59 AM

I had a wonderful meal at a vegetarian restaurant on a trip to Halifax. It was on Gottingen Street, quite small and very hippie/granola looking. Great paintings on the wall and the best veggie food I've ever had. Can't remember the name though. Can anyone help?

        I think you are referring to Satisfaction Feast, located on Grafton Street. Hope this helps!

          I have never been to Satisfaction Feast. On my trips to Halifax I always head to Heartwood on Quinpool Rd. It is an organic vegetarian restaurant (maybe vegan? lots of vegan food anyhow). It is not cheap, but not super expensive either. You get a plate, choose you food, and pay by weight. If you are looking for super cheap eats do not go to Heartwood, but if you are willing to pay for a good meal it is a great destination. I have been vegetarian for most of my life, and have eaten all over north America. Heartwood is right up there with my favourite vegetarian eateries.

            Actually this sounds more like Bob and Lori's, a north end staple for many years now. I don't think they have a website, but here's their contact info:

            Bob & Lori's Food Emporium
            2179 Gottingen Street,
            Halifax, NS B3K 3B5

              I think it is Bob and Lori's - their food is fantastic!

                That was Bob and Lori's for sure. Not just vegetarian.... I love their fish cakes.

                If that is your style, check out The Wooden Monkey on Argyle... My fave is the Seitan Sandwich.

                  Went to Wooden Monkey last night with a friend for dinner. Food was wonderful - the gourmet salad was to die for, as was the bruschetta :) I would definetly recommend it.
