Gluten-free, vegan, vegeterian choices. Menu prepared with imagination. Nice hip ambiance. The staff is helpful and understanding individual needs.

This is a great little spot to go out for lunch or dinner. The decor is cheerful, the staff efficient and friendly and the food is solid and good. Even non-vegans will be impressed. My friend and I also had a cupcake--amazing! It was really the best part. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in town.

The servers in this restaurant are sweet, quick, and try to do a good job. The warm colours of the interior with the decor of original art, create a welcoming ambience. The menu looks promising, with lots of choices Unfortunately he food was quite a disappointment, my $14 miso noodles bland and overly salty, with mushy noodles and vegetables under... More

I love this place. I would eat there every day, if I could. My favourites are the black bean burrito, the chickpea burger, the lentil burger, and the Veggie and brown rice bowl.

I have never been disappointed by a meal at The Sprout. The quality and freshness of the food is always excellent. They have a great menu with plenty of variety. Of course, you're out of luck if you're looking for meat because it's all veggie. I sometimes go because I'm in the mood for an awesome Pad Thai and The... More

I love going to The Sprout for tasty, healthy food...which is sometimes hard to find in a city of Fish and Chips! I love the avocado sandwich! In fact, I love it so much that I just keep ordering the same thing over and over again so I can't really comment on anything else! Though, whatever my friends have ordered... More

Wow Wow Wow Wow as Kylie says. The food was outstanding. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was outstanding. The bathrooms were a disaster. But I was willing to go back again because of 1 2 & 3. I get that it's an old building but good bathrooms are pretty important for a restaurant.

I first tried this place with my boyfriend and we were not disappointed. He is a meat-atarian and liked this place too. I had the "poutine" with a side of baked tofu strips. First of all, did not know that tofu could do that, sooo gooood. The "poutine" (brown rice with miso gravy topped with roasted potatoes, shredded carrots and... More

On our first trip to NL I was pleasantly surprised to find a vegetarian/vegan restaurant just a short distance from our hotel. So happy in fact, we ate here on 2/5 nights in town. My first meal was very good (falafel plate) with pleasant and efficient service. The second one was less so (black bean & sweet potato burrito). The... More
