Invitation V in Mile End is a vegan restaurant that features many gluten-free items which are clearly marked on their menu. Like most restaurants in Montreal they cannot guarantee no cross-contamination but they paid great attention to the fact that my meal had to be gluten-free. They noted that I was celiac when I made my reservations and when each dish was served they noted what on the table was gluten-free (for the items my friends ordered). The menu is completely vegan, but I think the menu would please most meat eaters.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere, the service was great and the meal was delicious. The only negative was the dessert, the “cheeseless” cake was inedible, which was a disappointment since my friends and I usually love vegan desserts. My two girlfriends and I were happy trying a new place that catered to my allergy and my vegan best friend.

Compared to most restaurants Invitation V takes a lot more care to provide a gluten-free dining experience. I would definitely go back, minus the cake. The prices are about average, the mains were between $14-$18.

I went for dinner, but they also do lunch and brunch.
