Vegan-Friendly Dining

It’s Easy Eating Green

NEPA’s local restaurants are offering more plant-based dishes than ever before, and we’re not just talking salads (although you can find some amazing, power-packed bowls out there). These eateries go above and beyond with everything from upscale farm-to-table dinners to vegan comfort foods like pizza, cheesesteaks and burgers. Oh, and don’t even get us started on desserts. Even if you’re not vegan, you have to admit that it’s pretty darn delicious.

You’ll find lots of fresh, wholesome and creative options on the menu at these vegan-friendly NEPA restaurants. We’re even home to several cafés that are 100% vegan. So raise a fork and try out these local spots.
