The Karma Conscious Café & Eatery
Find it: 157 2nd Ave. N., thekarmacafe.ca
The low-down: This vegetarian café is all about promoting good karma. A portion of the proceeds from sales of their grub is donated to local charities, so you can give back while you dig in.
Prices: $2.49 to $3.99 each
What to order: The Super Sonic ball ($2.99), a 100 percent raw treat that delivers a burst of energy thanks to nuts and dried fruit. (It’ll keep you going long past your morning Americano, we promise.)
The Griffin Takeaway
Find it: 3311 8 St. E., griffintakeaway.com
The low-down: For your next workday, leave the kale salad at home and stop by this takeaway lunch shop and bakery for a hearty (and totes flavourful) sammie. Grab a scrumptious pastry to save for a mid-afternoon refuel.
Prices: $2.50 to $10 each
What to order: A thick slice of dairy-free banana chocolate chip or banana walnut bread ($8.50) for an upgrade to your weekday brekkie or a pumpkin pie doughnut ($3.50) for a seasonal snack
Citizen Café & Bakery
Find it: 18 23 St. E., citizencafeandbakery.ca
The low-down: This homey spot not only serves up gourmet treats (we see you, delish “pop tarts”), but also has a quirky interior to match. The bright yellow chairs, colourful chalkboard menus and antique clocks give the café its upbeat vibe.
Prices: $4 to $6 each
What to order: One of their gourmet “pop tarts” ($4.25 each), which come in flavours that are anything but basic: think sweet potato–pecan, pumpkin pie and apple-cinnamon
