    I went to Lime, a Thai restaurant right on Eglinton just east of Yonge near Redpath. I am a veg and there are lots of veg options there: the three of of got the veg appetizer platter (spring rolls, salad rolls, tofu) and my main was the mango tofu sunrise.

    Great veg Thai food.

      Green Papaya has a number of vegetarian dishes, and are very flexible when it comes to serving veggies.

        I love the pizza slices at classico. . . . they are delcicious, with a nice cornmeal crust. . . . From what I recall, there are vegetarian options.

          What about Zucca...? I think they have some veggie pasta options.

            Cha Liu has a number of veggie options. Had my first dinner at La Vecchia last night - surprisingly good and amazing value - and they have a number of veggie pizzas and pastas on offer. If you're willing to venture a few blocks south, Tabule has fantastic food, including lots of great veggie items (dips, falafel, salads, etc.).

              My vegetarian friend loves Chef of India, even at the buffet I think you would get good value paying $8.95 and only eating the veg stuff.

                For other veg options, try:

                Bacaro on Eglintion - fast and somewhat upscale Italian takeout with some veg options

                Same with other Italian/Pizza around there (Madanto's margherita slice is a favourite of mine in the area)

                Yummi's - good falafel, lots of good salads, etc.

                Subway's FANTASTIC garden veggie patty sub!!! So under the radar and so incredibly tasty! I never order meat subs there since discovering this one. Make sure they heat the patty for at least 1:40 if it's a 12" sub you order.

                  Happy Buddha can be very good - but you have to know what to order. Things I love:

                  Sesame spicy mock chicken over broccoli. Fantastic flavours and mock chicken is very convincing... better tasting than real meat by a mile!

                  Satay kebabs with peanut sauce. The sauce is excellent, same on meat texture.

                  Rice noodles with vegetables and mock beef.

                  Fried rice. A classic and now egg-free.

                  Fried Banana dessert. Unhealthy, but delish

                  AVOID:
                  All soups, except wonton which is just okay.

                    If you don't mind Chinese veg, there's Happy Buddha.
