Aux Vivres is a great place to go in Montreal for a fresh vegan meal. The Buddha Bowl with broccoli and the Choco Classique Smoothie are my favorites for lunch/dinner. If I’m in the area I often do pick-up.
This winter morning we had brunch and I loved my coffee, beet, carrot and apple juice and gluten-free granola with soy yogurt and fruit (the small was more than enough for me). My friend Nick also had a gluten-free brunch option, polenta with beans, tofu scramble and guacamole that is amazing. A great brunch with great friends where everyone can eat is always appreciated.
Aux Vivres is a great option for gluten-free friendly food in the Plateau. There are dishes with gluten so always double check that what you are ordering is gluten-free.
UPDATE July 2015: I just visited Aux Vivres and noticed that they have removed all the GF signs from their menu as there is a risk of cross contamination in the kitchen. All the bowls and salads are still considered safe but they are no longer identifying items as GF on the menu.
