We stopped by during our trip from Milan (italy) to northern Ontario, and enjoyed something unusual and delicious: food and place, judge yourself from the pictures. Coffee was very good, which is something italian people do not say often when they are abroad! And I am sorry, my sweet salad was so inviting that I forgot to take a picture... More

The menu has grown! I am so pleased to see that most of the items on the menu are either vegan or can be ordered vegan (with a few exceptions.) Choosing between so many tasty options is now the problem. Wes, one of the owners, always goes above and beyond for the customers and is one of the creative forces... More

A wonderful place for lunch, with lots of local and whole food, plant-based options. The restaurant feels very 'real' and own to earth.It has a small environmental footprint, but is big on taste and selection. Just remember to bring cash!!

So this place came highly recommended, it has good food, but since i didn't look like a hipster or like like I fit in that crowd, I was very rudely treated. When I told friend about this, I was laughed at for expecting to be treated normal if I was wearing "jock" stuff in the place..... I want to try... More

I have been going to the Planet Bakery for a while now, since discovering it about 4 months ago. Delicious vegan and vegetarian food is what you will consistently find, along with friendly waitstaff, kitchen staff, and local owners Wes and Ted. If you love egg salad but don't want the eggs, believe it or not, Wes makes a beautiful... More

Oh my goodness this place is truly a wonderful place to eat from the creative breakfast, brunch to the amorousness lunches. The staff have a warmth to them and the décor is interesting. The only draw back is the location but worth the trip to a vegan cuisine in Peterborough.

Good alternative to overpriced and not very tasty food served at Trent University cafeterias operated by Chartwell. Organic food, relatively broad selection of breakfast, lunch and snack. Only 4 stars since the service is rather slow. Bonus, free really good coffee refill.

I've eaten at the planet 4 times now........and while I still like it, some of the 'glow' from my first review has worn off a bit. The chick pea, vegetable and garlic soup today was a bit bland........although it's nice they have some chipotle tobasco sauce on the table to put on it. My partner and I split the Mexican... More

Tex-mex meets 50's diner in this cool, vegetarian, kitschy eatery. The decor is rustic chic, complete with mid century laminate dinette sets with fold under leaves. The food is delicious and fresh with generous portions. Service is friendly and efficient. So, if you're not a lover of rustic decor, go anyway for the great food.

Best Muffins in town for a decent price. My favorite is the Blueberry muffins!! Their bakery does well and sells out fast some mornings. I haven't had lunch here myself but I hear their soups are quite good. Staff is very friendly and always wish you a great day!!
