Vegetarian / Vegan in Mont Tremblant and Laurentians

Hello fellow hounds

Sorry if this was already discussed, I didn't find anything in searching.

We are going to stay in Mont Tremblant for 2 nights. My partner and I are both vegan. We are very flexible with where we go to eat and don't mind asking for substitutions or asking to remove dairy, etc from dishes in restaurants.

That said, we do enjoy good food and eating in nicer places. We don't mind spending a bit of money on a decent meal. We are very open to ethnic food of all kinds as well (indeed, as a vegan this often presents more choices!). We also like to eat very healthy but we are on vacation so this is not a strict requirements :)

Can anyone make some specific suggestions on good places to go for breakfasts, lunches and dinners? Of course I don't think we will find many specific vegetarian or vegan restaurants, but places with at least some options would be great.

We have a car and don't mind driving to the surroundings of Tremblant itself and towns around the Laurentians.

Many thanks in advance

  1. I'm not sure the name of the place, but my husband and I had a fantastic vegetarian meal at a little Italian place on the Montreal end of the main street, left side of the street as you're headed towards Montreal. They had 4-6 tables, and a take-out counter. The chef/owner's wife works at a resort in the area.

    I really wish I could remember the name, it was the best meal I had Quebec.

    2. Have you gone to Happy Cow to see what their website says?

      I hope it helps and good luck!

        Thank you! I had searched Happy Cow but not found anything, but now I see they have two listings for Val David which is very helpful. Thank you!

      2. Hi, I know it's been a long time since you posted this, but for everyone's information. I am a vegetarian who lives part of the year in the Laurentians, and I've always found it challenging to find good dinners out. Somewhat miraculously, cheval de jade in mt. tremblant (st jovite) serves a vegetarian main course every night. Amazing that you can have a proper french restaurant experience as a vegetarian in the laurentians. Also, there's plenty to eat at Lezvos, greek in St. Sauveur. And there is a little Mexican place in Prevost called Munoz that has one very good veg main course.

        1. I would call La Petite Cachée or look at their menu online, we go there every summer, it's minutes from the village on a side road. They are flexible with options.

            We actually went to Petite Cachée the year before, as vegetarians and *loved it*. We went back this year, and although there was nothing specifically vegan on the menu, they were very accommodating and happy to make us something :)

            Also on this trip, we ate at the little smoothie/juice place in the pedestrian village, which was great for a quick healthy bite (lots of vegetarian and vegan choices too). We had a dinner at Coco Pazzo, which was pretty good although perhaps a bit overpriced for the quality. Not to say it wasn't good, but nothing to really write home about.

            Finally, we had brunch on the way home at Orange et Pamplemousse in St Saveur, and it was really good!
