Ultimate Winnipeg All-Vegan Burger Restaurant Arrives in Ontario!

Ultimate Winnipeg All-Vegan Burger Restaurant Arrives in Ontario!

“Boon,” the word for bean in Dutch and Afrikaans, in English describes something bringing blessings or benefits, or to be thankful for. And with Boon Burger, a 100 percent vegan burger restaurant with two locations in Winnipeg and a third that opened earlier this month in Barrie, Ontario, we certainly do have something to be thankful for!

Established in 2010, Boon Burger was the first all-vegan burger restaurant in Canada. Initially offering nine different burgers, Boon now offers 14 delicious vegan burgers with a creative, world cuisine-inspired combination of toppings, most of them local, organic, or fair trade.


The bombay talkie burger creates exotic flavours by incorporating sweet tangy bombay sauce with roasted yam, while adding a more “conventional” taste with smoky “bacun” and vegan cheddar. The thanksgiving burger allows diners to experience fall harvest meals year-round with its cranberry sauce, glazed yam, and gravy over a grilled potato-crusted “turkey” patty.

While the delicious yet healthy and affordable burgers are filling, those with a larger appetite can add oven baked sesame-potato fries, soups, or healthy salads.


Delicious coconut milk-based shakes with flavours that change daily are a tasty complement to any meal.  And no one should leave without tasting Boon’s unique take on the banana split — a sumptuous combination of bananas, coconut milk ice cream, berry sauce, pineapple, and dark chocolate sauce.
