Much of the food at this weekend's Toronto Vegan Food & Drink Festival was seriously transcendental. The food coma that resulted from trying it all = a price we were happy to pay.

The standouts:

SUNDAES AND WAFFLES A LA MODE FROM SWEET TEETH VEGAN

The biggest treat ever for our tastebuds: (1) the closest thing to the Dairy Queen sundaes that marked our childhoods and (2) a dreamy dish of waffles heaped with fresh fruit and paired with just-the-right-amount-of-sweet soft serve vanilla ice cream.

To help awesome owners Cam & Taz get their killer biz up and running, donate to their Kickstarter campaign. And spread the word to friends and fam (who, unless they're the grinch incarnate, are bound to get excited about this).

FAUXMAGERIE ZENGARRY 100% DAIRY-FREE CASHEW CHEESE

Gourmet vegan cheese has stepped onto the scene (and we can finally kick Daiya and other not-nearly-good-enough alternatives to the curb). Available in gorgeous flavours like brie, gruyere and smokey jalapeño, these babies are hand-crafted using raw organic cashews, cold-pressed organic coconut oil, and local organic garlic and fresh herbs and spices.

Find them in various stores in Ontario or Quebec, or purchase them directly from the website.

A TASTE TEST OF WHAT PLANTA HAS IN STORE

This fall, the masterminds behind Colette Grand Cafe & Kasa Moto, along with famed chef David Lee, will bless Toronto with an innovative plant-based eatery. Inspired by cuisines from across the globe and located in Yorkville, based on the samplings we snapped up today it's sure to be a huge success.
