10 vegan sandwiches in Toronto you need to try at least once

Vegan sandwiches in Toronto may be designed for plant-based eaters, but even carnivores should try some of them at least once. Despite their lack of meat, these creations are still definitely worthy of the title of sandwich and are just as hearty, convenient and comforting as their cold cut counterparts.

Here are vegan sandwiches in Toronto you should try at least once.

Tut's Egyptian Street Food

The vegan cauliflower, or arnabeet, sandwich from this spot on King West stuffs fried cauliflower, garlic tomatoes and tahini into a fluffy house bun.


At this restaurant near Dundas and Dovercourt, BLT stands for beet, lettuce, tahini, a sandwich loaded with lots of layered thinly-sliced beet.


This restaurant near Lansdowne and Wallace can make their vegetarian mushroom sandwich vegan simply by subbing in vegan mayo. You can also get a vegan zucchini sandwich by requesting their Z.E.N. breakfast sandwich with no egg and extra veggies.

Hogtown Vegan on College

This spot in Little Italy is known for a variety of vegan sandwiches, but this imitation of a beefy classic has thinly sliced seitan, sautéed green peppers and onions, and a nacho "cheez" sauce.


This splashy restaurant in Yorkville may be known for their veggie burger, but this chicken sandwich deserves its moment as well, with buttermilk fried cauliflower, daikon, carrot and cilantro all on a challah bun.

Urban Herbivore

Head to this place in Kensington Market that has a sandwich on the menu with cornflake crusted unchicken, sweet chilli sauce, house made mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumbers and sunflower miso butter on a kaiser bun.

Hello 123

Pop over to West Queen West to find a restaurant where they make a tempeh sandwich with arugula, mushrooms, pesto, olives, sunflower hummus, zucchini and tomato sauce on sourdough.
