Looking for a vegetarian friendly, quintessentially "Toronto" restaurant open on a Sunday

Not too much to ask right?

A vegetarian (no meat, no fish, no seafood) friend of mine is visiting Toronto for the very first time, and I wanted to take him out to Lee on Sunday but they are closed.

I'm looking for something with veggie friendly options, but not exclusively veg as I need my meat.

Any help finding something that kind of sums up Toronto would be awesome.

  1. Actually, no, it's not too much to ask! Woodlot is exactly what you're looking for. They have a separate vegetarian menu that is delicious, but a full carnivore menu that will keep you happy. They fall into that quintessentially "comfortable, slightly hip, mid-price" restaurant that seems to be Toronto's sweet spot these days. It can be hard to get a reservation, but they do have a communal table and a bar that are options for walk ins.

    And since it's at College and Palmerston, you can walk down College St. after dinner and pop in for a drink at any place that catches your fancy.

      Thanks for the rec TorontoJo! Woodlot is pretty booked for Sunday, but encouraged me to walk in which is a bit of a risk, but I'll try it out. Worst case scenario, Grace is next door...

    2. My favourite is still L.A.B.
      Open Sunday - 'Italian with a twist'.
