New Orleans has long been an eating paradise for nearly everyone except vegans, but non-meat eaters are currently enjoying a golden era for vegan options, with bakeries, soul food joints, and dim sum spots all taking root in recent years. And while the city has lost a few vegan powerhouses recently — Coalesce Goods, Vegan Wit’ a Twist, and Good Eden — others have come along to replace them, spots like I-tal Garden, Botanicals Nola, and food truck Original Thought. Add to that all the carnivore-friendly spots that now serve enticing vegan items, and options abound. For the purposes of this map, however, restaurants included are either all vegan or have a lot of vegan options.
On this list, you’ll find New Orleans’s longstanding vegan cafes, brand new health-focused juice and salad spots, vegan soul food kitchens, and a few restaurants that have made it a point to include vegan diners. If we missed your favorite local vegan destination, let us know.
