When I recently posted my WW restaurant guide, one reader asked for a guide for Canadian restaurants.

So, if you’re a WW member residing in Canada or frequently visiting, you’ve come to the right place. Especially if you’re looking for some of the best food options available. In this article, we have gathered some of the most delicious and low-point Canadian food options, including coffee shops, fast-food joints, and fast-casual sit-down spots.

We will be discussing some of the healthy choices that you can order from these places! Some of these popular Canadian-based restaurants may have a few locations in the U.S. but are primarily located in Canada. Nevertheless, you can refer to this list whenever you are on the go and don’t want to use up too many points! Let’s get into it, shall we?

Pita Pit 

Pita Pit is a quick-service establishment that gives its customers plenty of customization when it comes to pita sandwiches. Although the U.S. has some locations, it was established in Canada. On their menu, they have an assortment of grilled meats, veggies, and sauces, as well as other menu options.

The trick to ordering here is to start with a whole wheat pita pocket (small), which is just 3 points! Or you can make it a salad. Then, you can add a low-point protein and load up on the veggies.

  • Black Bean Patty: 2 Points
  • Gyro Strips: 7 Points
  • Steak Fajita (smaller, salad): 7 Points
  • Falafel Balls (per order): 5 Points
  • Buffalo Chicken (smaller, wheat pita): 6 Points

Boston Pizza

Despite its name, Boston Pizza is a Canadian chain. In fact, they pride themselves on being “Canada’s number one casual dining brand.”

At Boston Pizza, there are certainly many high-point options, like the 65-point Smoky Mountain Spaghetti & Meatballs or the 40-point Boston Sized Burger. Don’t worry, though; we found some options that are much lower in points for you to try out!

  • French Onion Soup: 9 Points
  • Hawaiian Pizza (per slice from a small pizza): 4 Points
  • Caesar Salad (starter size): 9 Points
  • Garden Greens (starter size with citrus vinaigrette): 4 Points
  • Seasonal Vegetables: 0 Points

The Keg

The Keg has been around since the 70s, with its first location in North Vancouver. It is a steakhouse and bar with salads, soups, seafood, steak, and plenty of comfort food. Some options you should avoid?

Well, the Garlic Cheese Toast is 34 points! And the Keg Burger with Fries is an astonishing 51 points. Luckily, there are much better options that you can mix and match to make a low-point meal. Take a look:

  • Shrimp Cocktail: 1 Point
  • Mixed Green Salad: 4 Points
  • Grilled Top Sirloin (6 oz): 7 Points
  • Blackened Chicken: 2 Points
  • Cauliflower Mash: 6 Points
  • Side Mixed Vegetables: 0 Points
  • Side Asparagus: 0 Points

Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons has more locations than Starbucks in Canada, making it the most popular quick-service coffee shop in the country. It is also considered to be more budget-friendly.

Although some of their drinks can be high in points, you can certainly keep it healthy by having a simple order like the options below. Also, Tim Hortons offers Splenda as a possible sweetener instead of sugar, which can also keep the point amount at bay.

We’ve also included a couple of bakery items:

  • Coffee with 1 milk (small, medium, and large): 1 Point
  • Coffee with 1 Milk and 1 Sugar (large): 4 Points
  • Latte (medium): 6 Points
  • Vanilla Cream Cold Brew (small): 7 Points
  • Old-Fashioned Plain Timbit: 3 Points
  • 12-Grain Bagel: 8 Points

Booster Juice

Booster Juice refers to itself as “Canada’s original juice and smoothie bar.” They offer a variety of smoothies, juices, and wellness shots, as well as some food items. Although you would assume smoothies are always low in points, think again.

Some options, like the Funky Monkey, are 16 points. However, don’t be discouraged. There are other options. The examples shown below are if you order them in the regular size:

  • Very Berry Smoothie: 9 Points
  • Tropi-Kale Smoothie: 9 Points
  • Celery Juice: 1 Point
  • Lemon & Ginger (single shot): 0 Points
  • Egg White & Cheese Wrap: 8 Points
  • Sweet Green Bowl: 8 Points


Harvey’s is a Canadian fast-food chain serving burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more. They also have a poutine section on the menu, but all of the poutine options are between 20-30 points. If you’re really craving it, though, we suggest getting an order and splitting it with your loved ones!

As far as low-point options, there are definitely some good choices. Since they have a grilled chicken sandwich, it is 10 points less than a crispy chicken sandwich. Check out some low-point options here:

  • Jr. Burger: 8 Points
  • Veggie Burger: 7 Points
  • Grilled Chicken Sandwich: 4 Points
  • Deep Fried Pickles: 6 Points
  • Garden Side Salad: 0 Points
  • Chicken Strips (2 pieces): 6 Points


Canada has about twice as many A&W locations as the U.S. does, and their menus are different. Canada A&W and U.S. A&W are not affiliated with eachother anymore, since the 70s.

When choosing from a Canadian A&W menu, some of their larger menu items, like the Grandpa Burger, have 27 points. So, your best bet is to go for one of the smaller burgers or to order breakfast. And did you know that a Frozen Root Beer is only 8 points? That’s not too bad, in our opinion!

  • Breakfast Wrap: 6 Points
  • Chicken Strips (3 pieces): 8 Points
  • Cheese & Egger with English Muffin: 9 Points
  • Buddy Burger: 12 Points
  • Frozen Root Beer (small): 8 Points

Swiss Chalet

Last but not least, we have Swiss Chalet, a casual dining chain that you can find in Canada. Swiss Chalet’s menu offers tons of comfort food, from hearty chicken meals to yummy sides like mashed potatoes.

Believe it or not, there are actually quite a few options that are low in points. Check them out here:

  • Quarter Chicken White Meat Dinner (with skin, no sides, no dinner roll): 3
  • Chicken on a bun (white meat with chalet sauce, no sides): 7
  • Market Vegetables: 0 Points
  • Creamy Mashed Potatoes (no gravy): 6
  • Caesar Salad (with dressing, no chicken): 9
  • Creamy Coleslaw: 6

Whether you’re looking for a quick coffee, a fast-food burger, or a sit-down meal, don’t let the fear of not being able to find anything on the menu stop you from enjoying your favorite spots.

Stick to lean proteins and try to order grilled meat rather than fried. Also, choose either brothy soups, salads, or non-starchy vegetables for sides, and you’ll be able to satisfy your cravings while keeping your food low in points!
