57Végane started in 2014 by opening the door of the first all vegan restaurant in Laval called 57Cals.
At that time, our menu included different types of falafel sandwiches and plates. Since the base of all our items was the falafel, and since each one of our regular falafel balls counted 57 calories, we thought it would be fun to name our restaurant 57Cals. Soon after, with the growing popularity of our concept and thanks to our chef’s creativity, our menu included many Mediterranean sandwiches and dishes that you would never imagine the vegan version of.
Three years into our journey, we decided to reach an even bigger clientele by distributing our products in grocery and health food stores around the Greater Montreal. We absolutely loved the feedback! We have since been developing our product line and have decided to enlarge our distribution division.
Since 57Cals was no longer representative of our concept, we have renamed our distribution division 57Végane.
We want our customers to have an exciting, different, and adventurous experience with our food. We are dedicated to bringing you only fresh and natural ingredients, and everything from the falafel patties to the sauces are made from scratch.
Knowing that our customers are too busy to cook sometimes, we strive to relieve them of their worries about lunch or dinner with our ready-to-eat vegan products and our meal service.
BEHIND OUR CREATIONS
The creative force behind 57Végane is co-owner and chef Silva. She is full of energy and enthusiasm, especially when inspired to create a new recipe to add on her repertoire. She uplifts the atmosphere in the kitchen and customers leave the restaurant having made a new friend in her.
An artist at heart, she loves to travel and learn about different cultures and traditions and cuisines. She never shies away from trying new things, and experiencing new tastes and culinary sensations. She’s always searching for the perfect sauce, perfect spice combination and the perfect marriage of different ingredients.
Our staff members are our backbone. Their dedication and commitment to be the best in what they do has helped 57Végane to become a favorite in our neighborhood and beyond. Our diligent staff members are as excited as we are with our new recipes and they enjoy the changes we incorporated recently to make the 57Végane products more accessible.
