It all started with a dream of making vegan food more widely accepted and mainstream for Calgarians with a broad variety of lifestyles. Darian and Laine opened a food truck in June of 2018, and quickly fell in love with changing peoples' perceptions of what vegan food should taste like with comfort food favorites that just happen to be vegan. Fast forward two years, and here we are starting up Calgary's very first full service vegan restaurant!
Nestled in a small historic building in the Beltline, Vegan Street Kitchen & Lounge has character and a cozy atmosphere that makes everyone feel like home. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, enjoying good company, or just indulging in good food and drink, we look forward to meeting you and serving you at Vegan Street Kitchen & Lounge.
From our humble beginnings, Coldgarden has supported our vision by allowing us to park our food truck at their tap room in the summer. We would always go in for a pint (or three) afterwards because a) they make fantastic beer and b) they are such down to earth cool people. It was only natural that they become one of our primary taps when the restaurant opened.
