645 W. 9th St. #107
Los Angeles, CA 90015
Fresh, healthy, and affordable in Downtown LA. Reset with the freshness of grain bowls, salads, sandwiches, soups, and smoothies. Some of the top recommendations are The Bodhivista Wrap with seitan chorizo, black beans, lettuce, fresh avocado, and halved grape tomatoes topped with a chipotle dressing and herb onion or The Dharma Bowl which has curried garbanzo beans, apricot chutney, and loads of fresh spinach. You build your bowl starting with a base of quinoa, rice, or soba noodles and add greens and up to six toppings, which seem endless on the menu. Get The Giving Bowl and 10% of the sale will go to an animal charity!
2301 K St.
Sacramento, CA 95816
The Burger Patch is an all vegan burger joint. In addition to regular burgers (and double-patty burgers), they serve a BBQ burger and a chicken sandwich. They have deliciously seasoned fries with homemade dipping sauces including a secret sauce. If you have a sweet tooth, enjoy a chocolate milkshake or a chocolate chip cookie. In addition to their storefront, they have a stand at the Golden 1 Center Arena. Grab a burger next time you are enjoying a Kings game or a concert!
12 N. Reading Ave.
Boyertown, PA 19512
Primarily a lunch spot, they offer primarily sandwiches and salads. Options include their BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwich, vegan grilled cheese/avocado sandwich, and quinoa salad. Don’t get there late, as they stop taking orders at least a half hour before they close.
6401 N. 10th St.
McAllen, TX 78504
FoodAmed approaches food as medicine, and in that spirit I’ll take a vegan chile relleno STAT! In all seriousness, FoodAmed offers a very diverse menu of whole-food vegan meals, from your fancy house-made veggie burgers, to curries, tamales, sandwiches and spaghetti. With options this ranging, there’s probably something for everyone in your party, regardless of tastes.
High Note Café
225 N. 5th St.
Boise, ID 83702
Located in the Chandlee Building. Enjoy great vegan food, a wide selection of beer, and live music! Food options include breakfast burritos, hot cakes, tofu scramble, bruschetta grilled cheese, rosemary seitan sandwich, Caesar salad, soups, loaded street tacos, grilled quesadillas, and more.
95 Ave. A
New York, NY 10009
Have you ever been stuck in a southern restaurant with nothing to eat except questionable side vegetables that were probably cooked in beef stock? Fear not, HoneyBee’s is a safe Southern spot for vegans. This barbeque restaurant and whiskey bar serves classic American dishes such as pulled pork, chicken and waffles, and hot wings. Paired with sides such as mac n’cheese, coleslaw, and potato salad, this savory saloon is sure to please. They also have an extensive cocktail selection with over 60 types of whiskey!
Real Veggie Café
4343B Austin Blvd.
Island Park, NY 11558
Real Veggie Café is a vegan Caribbean restaurant with the kind of good food that will leave you satisfied. Vegan steak sliders, deep fried cauliflower, curry vegan goat, potato salad, mac and cheese bake, traditional Jamaican soups, and more are all available.
Self Love Vegan Café
40 East Commerce St.
Bridgeton, NJ 08302
Get a vegan cheesesteak, black bean burger, or chickun-less salad. Or try one of their organic smoothies. They have a food truck too, so follow them on social media.
7257 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90046
Sugar Taco is an all-vegan Mexican restaurant with a pick-it-yourself approach. Get some tacos or nachos, a burrito or a quesadilla. Pick one of their house-made proteins, including vegan carne asada, pollo, al pastor, and more. Add some guacamole, pico de gallo, or queso. If you’re looking for something extra hot, try the ghost taco, just buy some vegan horchata to wash it down with.
10th Street Diner
3301 E. 10th St.
Indianapolis, IN 46201
10th Street Diner is an all-vegan diner where the seitan and cheese are made in-house, from the Reuben to lasagna. If you want something a little on the lighter side they also have arugula salads and wedge salads, and if you’re planning on enjoying your lunch for a while, have a local craft beer while you’re at it!
Vegan Food House
832 W. 7th St.
Dallas, TX 75208
Vegan Food House is a good option if you’re looking for creole comfort food. Get a po’ boy with seitan or oyster mushrooms, or maybe a basket with a side of fries. It’s not health food, but it is good food.
Vegan Wit a Twist
3225 St. Bernard Ave.
New Orleans, LA 70119
Follow Vegan Wit a Twist on Instagram because wow, this food looks good! Like the name says, they’ve got a twist on all classics. They have tacos, wraps, bowls and burgers. Check out the Bayou Burger, or Da Pressure. Some of it’s spicy, and it is New Orleans after all, so cool off with a sweet tea or an Arnold Palmer.
