J'adore

Végétalien, diversifié et même... goûteux! C'est vraiment fou ce qu'on peut faire avec les ingrédients qui ne sont pas animal! Le burger Portobello, c'est A1!!! lol Puis les frites, c'est pas mêlant, j'en prend à chaque fois. Et je ne manque jamais l'occasion d'essayer une nouvelle saveur de smoothies. Et enfin, je travaille de nuit et ça ferme à 23h00, donc je n'ai pas besoin de me presser. :D

Ce que j'aime particulièrement chez Aux Vivres, c'est à quel point leurs assiettes sont équilibrées, fraîches et colorées. C'est le restaurant que je recommande le plus, car il sait impressionner les gens de tout horizon culinaire. N'ai jamais été déçu!

In business since 1997, this bright restaurant with white Formica tables and white walls offers a large menu including bowls of chili with guacamole, and bok choy with grilled tofu and peanut sauce. Other options include salads, sandwiches, desserts, and a daily chef's special. All foods are vegan, all vegetables are organic, and all tofu and tempeh are local and organic.

Totally vegan, totally p.c. and totally yummy. Impossible, you say? No way, José. These hippies have unlocked the secret to creating vegetarian fare that doesn't taste like bits of flavored cardboard with seaweed garnish.

Oh I wanted so badly to give this place five stars! The food was magical. It was the best carrot cake of my life, no question. But the server did not check in, except to order our dessert, and did not even bring a water refill once, not even when I asked for one. Otherwise a wonderful dining experience. The latke burger is crazy good!

Literally the best sandwich I've ever eaten. The vegelox. Super underrated, always being shadowed by it's big brother, the Coconut BLT. The BLT is good, I'll admit, but the vegelox sandwich is out-of-this-world-blow-your-mind-ah-mah-zing. If I could only eat one sandwich for the rest of my life, it would be this one.

I went to Aux Vivres with my parents (who are vegan) and we weren't too impressed. The dishes had exotic flavors which I appreciated, but I didn't leave satisfied at all.

We had the dragon bowl, the buddha bowl with tempeh and the coconut blt wrap. All were okay. I probably wouldn't go back.

Came here for brunch on the weekend, which was busy. I got the yogurt with granola. It was my first time trying nondairy yogurt, and it was actually really good. I would definitely go for one of the veggie bowls next time, which was what my friend got and it looked so good. I also got a mango smoothie; I was hoping that the smoothie was thicker though.

Huge portions, the server was very nice, food itself fresh but essentially a giant thai bowl of carrots and three wedges of tofu with undercooked rice. The desserts looked amazing.

A vegetarian/vegan must
March 04, 2014

Even though you are not vegetarian and are willing to try, you won't be disappointed. I recommend the Corn Bread as an appetizer and the Dragon Bowl as main dish. Smoothies and juices are also delectable. Try it!!

Being vegan and working in hospitality for a few years now, I'm very opened minded to all types of restaurants and cuisines. Having said that, I do love solely vegan restaurants because it is one instance where I don't have to treat a restaurant menu like the map of a new city I'm trying to navigate-looking at all possible solutions... more

This is one of the best carrot cakes i've ever had, and its vegan. If you only end up grabbing of slice of cake you've done yourself a favor!

Best blt in Montreal
February 15, 2014

I've been there about 20 times. Prices are good 8-17$. I've had 5 meals, the chilli, vegeburger, portobello burger, chana wrap and by far my favourite the BLT!!! It is so good. They have a lot of good desserts too. I'm over due for a visit.

November 22, 2013

The restaurant is pleasent, the service is friendly, the crowd is young and updated. As for the food, I guess it depends upon your taste. The veggies among us adored it, the beef eaters no so much: The veggie hamburgers were dry and boring.

August 24, 2013

I love to come here for brunch with friends on the weekend when I visit Montreal. I have been coming here since they opened at their old location with mismatched furniture and flatware donated by the vegan faithful. If vegi restos like this could be found back home, I might switch to vegetarian.
