Green restaurants in TO?

Are there any "green" or environmentally conscious/friendly restaurants in Toronto?

  1. In this week's Now Magazine there's a list of restaurants that use environmentally friendly take-out containers. Can't remember them all but Fresh, By the Way Cafe and Utopia were on there.

    1. Live at Dupont and Spadina is definitely very organic and eco-conscious in their cooking. I imagine they're also very conscious in their practices.

      I would expect similar things of Fressen on Queen West. And I'd second Fresh as a great place to eat.

      1. I'm wondering about Cafe Vert on Queen Street east. Haven't been there, but I think they might be considered green (beyond their name, that is).

        1. re: SusanB

          Yes, I was going to say Cafe Vert. I was reading about it in one of those nutritional magazines. I think they are organic, enviro conscious etc. (and supposed to be very good, but very small so not a place to go with a large crowd).

        2. great thanks! I wonder if they source there ingredients locally?

          1. I highly reccomend Camros Organic Eatery at 25 Hayden, just south of Bloor and just east of Yonge.

            I've been twice now - it has been delicious on both occasions. It's small but pleasant. Nobody's rushing, and they will gladly take the time to answer any questions you have about the food or the preparation. They also use biodegradable take-out containers and utensils.
