Your guide to vegan dining in Mont Tremblant’s resort village.
Maybe it’s a sign of the times, but vegan dining is getting a whole lot easier. I could always find a vegetarian item on the menu, but rarely a vegan one. Eating fries for dinner or a salad without the cheese was pretty normal. However, you don’t have to settle for mediocre hacked together vegan meals anymore. Plant-based options are becoming the new norm on restaurant menus.
In Mont Tremblant, vegan menu options are everywhere. Although Quebec is traditionally a land of meat and cheese, visitors to Tremblant have access to just about every kind of restaurant under the sun. There’s truly something for everyone, vegans and vegetarians included.
Here’s what I ate for three days at Mont Tremblant resort. Please note that I didn’t venture outside of the pedestrian village for food. I’m sure there are even more vegan options when you go into town.
This is my Mont Tremblant vegan dining guide for the pedestrian village.
While the main menu at Fairmont’s Axe Lounge Bar doesn’t have too many vegan offerings, it’s really easy to request a plant-based meal. The chef happily discussed the dining options at our table and prepared scrumptious vegan meals. I’d inquire ahead of time to make sure, but it’s well worth the extra work.
To start, we were brought two freshly pressed juices to try – one made with kale, and one made with beets. These were healthy and refreshing.
For our meal, we started with a fresh beet salad and the main course was a vegan pesto gnocchi. The ingredients were locally sourced as much as possible, and you could definitely tell. Everything was very fresh and flavourful. The gnocchi was actually the best I’ve had in my life. And I’ve eaten a lot of gnocchi. Justin was even trying to steal some more off my plate!
For dessert, we ate a trio of sorbets – mango, raspberry, and coconut. All dairy-free and all equally as tasty.
Not only was the food cooked to perfection, but the presentation was beautiful. The food almost looked too pretty to eat. However, I’m glad I sunk my teeth into every course. By the end, I was practically licking the plate clean.
O Wok at Tremblant is an Asian-inspired restaurant with Thai and Chinese cuisine. There were a few vegan dishes here, so you won’t have a problem finding plant-based meals right off the regular menu.
Please make sure that you tell your server about your dietary restrictions. There could be hidden ingredients in some of the items. For instance, the regular dipping sauce for the veggie spring rolls isn’t vegan, so they brought out soy sauce as the dipping sauce instead.
I had the Green Salad (spinach, bean sprouts, cabbage, green onion, mint, coriander, and sesame dressing), the spring rolls, and a vegetable stir fry with tofu.
There appear to be some soups and other mains on the menu where the meat can be replaced with tofu. Make sure you check with your server before ordering as I’m sure some of the sauces might not be vegan.
FLUIDE JUICE BAR
Fluide is a paradise for vegetarians, vegans, and those following a gluten-free diet. There are fruit and vegetable smoothies, freshly squeezed juices, bowls and wraps, and even desserts.
Justin and I happily sipped our fruit smoothies and gobbled up our quinoa and chickpea bowls. After lunch, I indulged in a vegan cookie made from oats and bananas. Finding vegan desserts at Mont Tremblant made me free completely overjoyed!
There were a couple of shelves full of healthy packaged snacks. It’s perfect for those moments where you’re a little bit hungry between meals or you want a snack to munch on in the evening.
For vegans, this one is a must visit. Even if I had to live off Fluide Juice Bar for three days, I’d be a happy camper.
MICROBRASSERIE LA DIABLE
Did you know that Mont Tremblant has its own microbrewery? La Diable serves up refreshing beer and delectable dishes.
La Diable had the classic pub environment down pat, with beer coasters decorating the walls and ceilings. There’s a pretty large patio outdoors that fills up quickly in the summer.
If you’ve never had their beer before, it’s best to try a small sampling before you decide on a pint. A tray of beer in little shot glasses was brought to our table and we tried them all. After some deliberation, I went with their seasonal Raspberry Lager and Justin tried the classic Diable. After an afternoon of adventures, refreshing pints were just what we needed.
Unfortunately, the veggie burger here isn’t vegan. However, I ate a pasta dish with fresh vegetables on top that was really good. This is the vegan option that you’ll want to try.
Pizzateria is really vegan-friendly and we ordered a few items from the menu. The green salad had arugula, pears, pumpkin seeds, and a citrus vinaigrette. There was a vegetarian soup that Justin ordered instead of the salad.
Of course, I had to order a pizza as my main course. There were a couple of vegetarian pizzas, and you can also build your own. I ordered the deluxe vegetarian pizza without the cheese, which included onions, green peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, and olives.
We also adored the chili oil on the side of the table and learned that it’s made in house. Pour it on everything!
California-style cuisine is served up at Socal Kitchen. There were a couple of vegetarian menu items, but only the salads were vegan. The quinoa and bean salad had mixed greens, chickpeas, cucumber, and a citrus vinaigrette. The salad was massive and you won’t have to worry about being hungry afterwards.
You can’t travel to Tremblant without trying a famous Beavertail for dessert! They’re heavenly pastries with different sugary toppings. Thankfully, several of these are vegan as long as you omit the butter and certain toppings. Our favourite is the cinnamon sugar and it’s the one we keep trying anytime we see Beavertails at a festival or event.
From the Beavertails Facebook page, here are the vegan options:
- Cinnamon & Sugar – ask to hold the butter
- Killaloe Sunrise – ask to hold the butter
- Apple Cinnamon – ask to hold the butter and the caramel
- Maple – ask to hold the butter and the chocolate sauce decoration
- Coco Vanil’ – ask to hold the butter and the chocolate sauce decoration
If you follow a plant-based diet, there are so many Mont Tremblant vegan meals that are absolutely delicious. You won’t go hungry and you won’t have to plan to bring any additional food. Just bring your appetite and you’ll be good to.
