  1. Fressen is always good...

    1. lunch, dinner? price range?

      for lunch - i recommend fresh (several locations).
      not quite downtown i recommend are live(dupont & spadina) or annapurna (bathurst & dupont)
      fressen is higher end and would be great for dinner.

      1. I was forced by some Hippie Yuppie chums to go to Cafe 668 a few weeks ago and, despite the complete and utter lack of meat on the menu, had a good meal. On Dundas St. just east of Bathurst. Check it out.

          They've moved since your visit. They're now three blocks WEST of Bathurst at #885. Same name, tho.

        2. Had a meal at Vegetarian Haven a couple years ago, and it was surprisingly tasty even for my meat-loving self. Slightly upscale, but cozy at the same time.

          King's Cafe is pretty good too, though I think I prefer Bo De Duyen for Chinese. Kings definitely has nicer decor though. Feels a lot more contemporary, whereas Bo De Duyen is old school Chinese.

          Vegetarian Haven
          17 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON M5T1L1, CA

          King's Caf
          192 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T2L6, CA

          Bo De Duyen
          1999 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6R1W7, CA

            Bo De Duyen is no longer at that location. Supposedly it is moving elsewhere but I have no idea if that's actually happening (or has happened). At the very least, don't look for it at 254 Spadina.

          2. Fresh restaurants with several locations: Fresh on Bloor,Spadina,and Crawford

            Pulp Kitchen Juicebar & Eatery –
            Le Cafe Vert –

              Le cafe vert is veg-friendly, but not fully vegetarian.
