The idea behind opening up Veg-In YYC was based on a difficulty in finding pure vegan and vegetarian, homemade, and natural cuisine. We provide healthy and delicious food by transforming new and traditional 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 Pure Vegan & Vegetarian food crafted by our passionate foodie, Sehra.
Veg-In YYC is an original, one of a kind take-out café that offers tasty, homemade, affordable food using the freshest produce while supporting local suppliers where possible. We also serve a variety of hot and cold beverages, from Hot teas to organic bottled drinks, and a variety of handcrafted lassis. We have delicately chosen a menu that is full of flavour and unusual but delicious combinations to satisfy your palate.

We started out a simple vegetarian Café, soon after we became 100% vegan and expanded our menu to attract anyone. We couldn’t have come this far without all the amazing support 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.
Sehra may be small in stature, but she is a mighty force in the Calgary food scene. At the age of 49, the Hospitality Management grad is the co-founder and creative energy behind Veg-In YYC café, a vegan take on homemade Indian style cuisine and takeout. Calgary Herald restaurant reviewer John Gilchrist called her cuisine "a treat" and Veg-In YYC was named one of Where Calgary's Top 5 Takeout Restaurants of 2017. The downtown eatery is also currently a contender in the 2018 Best of Calgary awards.
