Victoria is home to no shortage of vegan and vegetarian restaurants, all of which offer a vast selection of delicious dishes, treats, and drinks. We asked our readers at Tasting Victoria to vote on their favourites when it comes to plant-based dining. With their voices we have created a list of the top three vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Victoria.
Rebar Modern Food
A renowned and popular restaurant, Rebar is situated in the heart of downtown in Bastion Square, a short distance from the ocean and Inner Harbour. This restaurant serves brunch, lunch, and dinner with a plethora of tasty menu options. Our readers at Tasting Victoria chose Rebar as their top spot to enjoy all the flavours and creativity that comes out of plant-based eating.
For lunch try Rebar’s spicy noodle bowl with rice noodles, carrots, red peppers, spicy peanut sauce, asian greens, scallions, crushed peanuts, and the possible grilled sesame tofu add on. Come in for their dinner hours and try one of the many amazing dishes that are served at Rebar like their Monk’s curry, almond burger, and more.

Nourish Kitchen and Café
Nourish first moved into their 133-year-old Heritage Home in James Bay in 2015 and since then they have been a popular brunch spot among Victorians, plant-based eaters and not. Every dish and drink at Nourish is served with an exceptional combination of fresh ingredients and flavours. Our readers at Tasting Victoria chose Nourish as a worthy addition to our list of the top three best vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Victoria.
Nourish serves dishes that are wholly unique in creation and design like the Sleeping Beauty oat pancakes and their ever-popular Golden Benny served with soft poached eggs (tempeh for a vegan substitute), turmeric hollandaise sauce, veggies, golden potatoes wedges, farm greens, and dukkah sprinkles. Discover all the delicious options at Nourish where plant-based ingredients and a flare for unique flavours were never more well matched.
