The idea behind opening up Veg-In YYC was based on a difficulty in finding plant based and vegetarian, homemade, and natural cuisine. We provide healthy and delicious food by blending Western and Traditional Indian recipes. We believe eating better leads to a happy and long life.
We are not just a Café... We are a movement
Located in Downtown Calgary, Veg-In YYC is a purveyor of Plant Based & Vegetarian food crafted by our passionate Homecook, Sehra.

We started out with one goal in mind. Create a tasty, inspired, fusion menu that would attract anyone looking for delicious plant based food. We couldn’t have come this far without all the amazing from our loyal customers and supporters!
I love vegetables that are treated well, and I’m not a fan of bland, processed, non-meat meat substitutes. So Veg-In YYC is a treat.
It’s straight-up, house-made vegetarian and vegan with a dose of gluten-free and Indian spices. The spiced-potato samosas are some of the best anywhere and the masala chickpea burrito is rich and tasty.
But I’ve been most impressed with the chipotle-black-bean burger topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and tamarind sauce. It’s big and drippy just like a meaty burger, and goes well with a mango lassi made with house-made yogurt.
Combined with the infectious energy of chef-owner Sehra Bindal, Veg-In YYC leads the pack of new vegetable-focused restaurants in town.
