Best Veggie Burgers


My best friend and I went back to Salt Spring Island together,
 only this time swapping muffins for the Best Veggie Burger ever!

From wooden architecture to a live tree growing in the
 middle of the restaurant, this cafe is picked straight from nature

The friendly cashier at the health food store
recommended this to-die-for Veggie Burger


A hearty and "beefy" Veggie Patty with Cheddar Cheese, Mayo-based Sauce, 
Greens, Lettuce, and Tomato tucked between two slices of toasted Ciabatta Bread 


It's scrumptious Vegetarian Junk Food at it's finest! (Hint: It
 tasted like a cross between A&W's Teen Burger and Mozza Burger)


Came with a side salad which I saved for later since I was still full from the burger


Spinach Salad with sliced Mushrooms and 
Red Onion, with a Lemony Dressing on the side


This place is truly "out of this world" :)

I'm not a vegetarian but that looks like the best burger ever, meat or not! The bread roll looks delicious too and I'd love to go to that sort of cafe :-)

I'm hitting up Saltspring on Saturday - perhaps that shall be my lunch. I do have a special place in my heart for a good A&W Mozza burger ;)

omg...would love to have a bite of that burger! i wonder what ingredients they used. there's a mushroom burger joint here, but i think they also add in a bit of beef/pork to the patties. i want a truly veggie burger like what you had! lol

This post brought a smile to my face...I went to Salt Spring Island last summer for a Mudgirls workshop, and we spent a few evenings at the Tree House Cafe! I'm dying to go back to the island someday. All this food looks spectacular!
