Sometimes, being a vegetarian or vegan can be tough because there are hardly any options for you to choose from when dining out. This is not the case in Detroit! The Detroit area offers plenty of vegan and vegetarian options for those of you who choose a plant-based diet. Vegan friendly food doesn’t have to be hard to locate! Read on to see some of our favorite vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Detroit:
Detroit Vegan Soul
Vegans rejoice! This 100% vegan restaurant specializes in, yep, you guessed it, vegan soul food! Their “soul platter” offers vegan mac-n-cheese, tenderly smoked collards, maple glazed yams, black-eyed-peas and cornbread muffins in the perfect marriage of comfort food and healthy eating! Vegan Soul offers a variety of brunch items and smoothies as well.
Golden Gate Cafe
Located in the Innate Healing Arts Center, Golden Gate Café offers a large vegetarian menu to diners. Golden Gate offers traditional lunch fair such as wraps, salads, and smoothies. They also serve delicious entrée items such as a veggie taco platter and a Caribbean inspired stir fry.
A vegetarian restaurant that has a daily happy hour? We’re interested! Seva not only offers happy hour from 4-6pm, but also serves up favorites such as a Reuben sandwich with a vegetarian twist. Seva even has vegan mac and cheese and a grilled pesto pizza sandwich.
PJ’s Lager House
Although not strictly vegan/vegetarian, PJ’s offers enough entrée options to satisfy both! Vegans, order their veggarito, which is basically a delicious warm vegan burrito or a cheese-free version of the veggie burger. Vegetarians, dine on anything from the vegetarian Reuben to the BBQ tempeh sandwich. Enjoy live music on the weekends and cold drinks.
Avalon is much more of a sweets and breads shop rather than a sit down restaurant. They offer a gigantic selection of fresh breads and delicious desserts, and even have a vegan dessert menu so that everyone gets a sweet! The “I can’t believe it’s vegan” chocolate brownie will please even the pickiest of chocolate lovers and the date nut bars are perfect energizers during a long day at work.
