Vegan-Friendly Dining

It’s Easy Eating Green

The vegan lifestyle has grown from a fringe movement to a foodie trend, and NEPA’s local restaurants are offering more plant-based foods than ever before. You’ll find plenty of fresh, wholesome options to the menu, and the variety extends far beyond salads (although you can find some amazing, power-packed bowls out there).

Here’s the best news: going vegan doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice amazing taste and your favorite treats. When the craving strikes, you can always find vegan comfort foods like pizza, wings, cheesesteaks and desserts. Even if you’re not a vegan, you have to admit that it’s pretty darn delicious.

From upscale farm-to-table restaurants and wine bars to smoothie shops and grab-and-go delis, NEPA’s eateries are full of creative options. We’re even home to several cafes that are 100% vegan. Treat your body (and your taste buds) well at these vegan-friendly restaurants.
