Area vegans don’t have to go too far to find delicious plant-based food.
Providence and Pawtucket have a variety of offerings, including the vegan food hall Plant City (with its four restaurants, bakery, and food market), Garden Grille, Wildflower Bakery and Juice Bar, Veggie Fun, and Beatnic (formerly By Chloe).
The Boston area is full of vegan eateries, from Veggie Galaxy and Veggie Grille in Cambridge, to True Bistro, Taco Party, and Eat at Jumbos in Somerville. Red Lentil in Watertown is a long-time vegan favorite, as is Walnut Grille in Newton. Some others include My Thai Vegan Café, Grasshopper Café, Rhythm ’n Wraps, Double Zero and Red White Japanese Vegan in Boston.
Closer to home:
Garden Patch at AJ’s Stone Oven Pizzeria in Norton (try the Philly cheesesteak sub and the pizzas … or one of the delicious desserts)
Purple Rooster Café in North Attleboro (breakfasts are to die for … especially the almond joy pancakes and the tofu scramble)
Habibi’s Middle Eastern Kitchen in North Attleboro (the veggie shawarma pita wrap with marinated mushrooms, tahini, parsley, tomato and onion is amazing, as is the crispy-on-the-outside, moist-on-the-inside falafel)
Luna’s Waffles and Cream in North Attleboro (there’s always a variety of vegan ice cream flavors)
Hangar 12 in Mansfield (swap out the eggs for tofu scramble and get the breakfast burrito that comes with peppers, onions, tomatoes, breakfast potatoes, black beans and salsa … while watching the planes take off from and land at Mansfield Municipal Airport)
Juice on Main in Mansfield (this all-vegan smoothie and juice bar has superfood smoothies and superfood bowls)
Uno Pizzeria and Grill in Attleboro and in Wrentham (the vegan cheeseburger deep dish pizza made with Beyond Beef with caramelized onions and diced pickles, drizzled with ketchup and mustard, is out of this world)
Citizen Crust in Foxboro (try the superfood bowl with roasted and seasoned sweet potato, cauliflower, beets, chickpeas, baby kale, slivered almonds, and lemon-tahini dressing — and don’t forget to add the crispy tofu “tuggets” … but save room for the meatball hero)
Tavolino in Foxboro (the risotto with roasted baby artichokes, pistachios, and fennel is a favorite, as are the pizzas, all of which can be made with vegan mozzarella cheese)
Bangkok Café in Foxboro (tons of tofu and other vegan dishes, including the popular sweet and sour tofu with fresh vegetables)
