      The first thing that strikes you about the South Granville district’s Heirloom is the sleek, expansive room in a historic building. No granola-crunchy, hippie-dippie touches here, just clean white walls and whitewashed bricks, giant multipaned heritage windows, and mid-century-cool chairs around the pale-wood tables. Antique teacups and vintage trowels on the wall give an old-farmhouse feel to the contemporary-chic setting. And that same vibe plays out in the creative menu of fresh vegetarian and vegan food, much of it sourced from local producers.

      Let’s start with brunch: for big eaters who don’t think meatless dishes will fill them up for the day, just try to wolf down the delicious Heirloom Scramble, beefed up (if you’ll excuse the term) with organic Saskatchewan quinoa, kale, artichoke hearts, and goat cheese. The eggs are free-range, of course. Vegans, meanwhile, can chow down on a heavenly chia coconut muesli or banana French toast with cashew cream.

      For lunch, try the Heirloom grilled cheese, with its melty aged white cheddar, arugula, and apple slices on sourdough, or a vegan kale Caesar topped with beet chips and cornbread croutons.

      For dinner, the veggie burgers come piled high with fixings like beet bacon, arugula, cider aioli, gorgonzola cheese. You can also opt for a side of avocado frites. Compliment it all with one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails—say, a bracing gimlet with fresh cucumber and mint. Note that the menu changes seasonally.
