Edmonton has only 4 exclusively vegetarian restaurants that I am aware of. Not too impressive, I know - Alberta is definitely beef country.

Cafe Mosaics on Whyte Avenue and Lucky in the Ritchie neighbourhood just south and east of Whyte Avenue - both owned by the same family and both are great. My partner is a regular, and is very fond of the Cowgirl Breakfast.

Oriental Veggie House and Padmanadi are in the Chinatown area of downtown. They are separately owned and operated, but are quite similar in that they both serve Asian dishes made with "fake meat". Highlights include the Kung Pao "Chicken" at Padmanadi and the "Lamb" Curry at Oriental Veggie House.

There are also a few great restaurants I can think of whose menus are a pretty equal split of vegetarian and meat dishes. These include Blue Plate Diner downtown (modern comfort food), Organic Roots near the University campus (a health-food store with a nice little cafe in it), and Bacon in the Highlands neighbourhood east of downtown. Bacon is a new favorite - it's tiny, with about 8 tables, and a sort of retro-cool decor. Their menu is a sort of modern prairie food with a slight Ukrainian twist, and they strive to source their ingredients from local suppliers.

True, there's not many exclusively vegetarian restaurants, but you'll find that most of the trendy places do have several good options on their menus.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I love the veggie burgers at the High Level Diner on 109 Street near the U of A. I do believe they have a pretty good mixed menu as well.
