La Panthere Verte, known among many university students in downtown Montreal, is an all organic vegan restaurant with three separate locations. It is a hip cafeteria style restaurant that serves up delicious veggie burgers, smoothies, soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts. Their goal is to promote a more sustainable way of living by buying local organic ingredients for their vegan dishes. Definitely a restaurant that holds the same values as G2N! Not only do they buy locally, but they also have other features that make their restaurant stand out among other vegan restaurants in Montreal. One of these features is the fact that they deliver their delicious meals by BIKE! I have not heard of one place doing that yet, so that is definitely a huge step forward. They also give out discounts for those who bring in their own containers, or for those who buy reusable containers sold at the restaurant.
When I went to their Mount Royal location, I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere. It was cozy yet modern, and the staff and customers were all amazing. Each and every one of the people in the restaurant shared the same values as I did and I felt at home. I was recommended the FalaFusion sandwich, which consisted of two moist falafels, carrots, pickles, pickled turnips, coleslaw, sprouts, and tahini sauce. It was so fresh tasting, there was no way it couldn’t be delicious! I then had one of their renowned smoothies for dessert, the Chai Bella, which is made with Chai Masala, coconut milk, rice milk, bananas, dates, and goji berries. It was equally as amazing as the sandwich, and definitely very filling. I can’t wait to go back and try more of what is on the menu like the “Viramisu”, a veganised tiramisu.
So if you’re ever in the Montreal area, make sure to check out La Panthere Verte for local organic vegan food that is absolutely delicious! This restaurant supports all of the Going 2 Natural values and is definitely a restaurant for all of you to check out!
