Veggie Galaxy

Veggie Galaxy is your go-to for some amazing vegan comfort food (and sometimes that "unhealthy" type of food you just need to satisfy your cravings with). Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Veggie Galaxy can make everything on the menu vegan. Some of our favorites are the vegan buffalo chik'n mac n cheese with blue cheese, the vegan poutine, vegan mac n cheese bites, the vegan stuffed French toast, the New York Style cheesecake, and the Oreo frappe! You won't even know what to get because their menu is so big. (We suggest just getting everything on the menu to avoid this problem).
