Great vegetarian options for Father’s Day meals in Edmonton

Not every Dad is Ron Swanson; some don’t do the meat thing, and that’s awesome. Whatever his reason – maybe he’s a huge fan of George Stroumboulopoulos and follows anything he does – thank him for being your dad by taking him out for an awesome meal. [Image credit: Patterson]

Padmanadi Vegetarian Restaurant

10740 101 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 2S3

Padmanadi has nearly everything (except meat, obvs). The menu is intimidatingly massive, with vegetarian Asian options for everyone. If your old man’s a fan of Kung Pao chicken, awesome. More of a tofu guy? They’ve got it. There’s a comfortable atmosphere and plenty of space, too, so bring your annoying little brother.

Cafe Mosaics

10844 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2B3

If you and Dad are looking for a place to start the day with a sunny, casual atmosphere, check out Café Mosaics, then head out for a stroll down Whyte Avenue. There are plenty of original creations to choose from – you can even get a big-ass vegetarian burger – and they’re all delicious and health- and earth-conscious.

Loma House Vegetarian Restaurant

9142 23 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6N 1H9

Sundays with dim sum are the best Sundays, so if you’re taking the old man out with the rest of the family, it’s a good call to hit Loma House. It has vegan-friendly dim sum, with all the rolls and buns you could want. Of course, they do every other meal as well, and how – there are fried noodles, appies galore and a daily special, so even your annoying cousin will find something to like.

Post-workout meals need two things: Carbs and protein. While that may seem a bit limiting at first glance, Edmonton has several awesome, healthy options for when you’re still wiping sweat away.
Dads are a tricky bunch to thank. What do you get them? A card? Socks? A firm handshake? While those are good options, how about you treat him to a darn good steak instead? [Image credit:]
Getting gifts for guys is a gargantuan task - we’re not always upfront about what we want and often happy with pretty well anything. A blank slate can be intimidating. Good thing Edmonton has plenty of places to find perfect presents for dudes.
