Vegan in Florida: Some of the Best Vegan Restaurants in Florida

This list will satisfy you whether you are already vegan or just considering becoming one. Not only are there health benefits to going vegan, but it opens up a world of new and exciting foods! :)

#1. Vegan in Orlando, Florida

Orlando is home to Disney World, but it is also home to plenty of vegan restaurants. The Magical Kingdom itself has lots of plant-based options, such as the Impossible Burger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.

But even more magical is the variety of vegan destinations in the city itself, making it one of the best vegan-friendly destinations in the US. Check out Leguminati for fantastic tortilla wraps, containing a wide variety of plant-based meat alternatives. One of the best is the Chic’n Bacun Ranch Crunch. Other options include Market on South, a deli-style restaurant also containing a bar and bakery. It is also an actual market, allowing you to buy your own produce, as well as some artisan crafts.

#2. Vegan in West Palm Beach, Florida

If you’re in the mood for some Thai food, there is no better place in West Palm Beach than Malakor Thai Cafe. While not completely vegan, there is a huge selection of exquisite plant-based dishes, such as their crispy bok choy and a variety of spring rolls.

On the theme of animal-loving activities, make a stop at Darbster, a dog-friendly vegan bistro that combines old favorites with creative new dishes. Their NY pasta with oyster and shitake mushrooms, or their meatless lasagne is highly recommended :)

#3. Vegan in Cape Coral, Florida

Cape Coral, a city located in southwest Florida, is known for its many canals. It is also known for its wide variety of vegan food options. For example, Loving Hut is a vegan restaurant with a strong ethos of saving both animals and the environment. They offer a huge range of foods, from burgers to noodles and soup. We recommend the Vegan Bacon Cheese Burger.

While you’re in the area, you can take advantage of the canals and get out of the water: rent a boat in Cape Coral and experience the city from a whole different perspective! See some of the wonderful sights on the waterway, including Florida's natural beauty and animals like the Great Blue Heron and even manatees. Take in Cape Coral’s many harbors and stunning homes as well. For another unique experience, check out Life - The Vegan Drive-Thru. They have a selection of great breakfast options, with some vegan versions of classic breakfast sandwiches.

#4. Vegan in Sarasota, Florida

Sarasota has a rich cultural history, but also a rich offering of great vegan food. One example is Ka Papa Cuisine, which features only fresh locally-sourced ingredients. We’re always torn between their Saffron Risotto Stuffed Tomatoes and their Pasta with Basil-Walnut Pesto.

We even have an option for those looking for raw vegan food: the Ionie Retreat and Organic Raw Food Cafe. They offer some great vegan yogurts and some of the most delicious vegan cheesecakes you’ll ever have. To soak up some of the vibrant cultures, visit the Ringling Museum of Art for artwork ranging from antiquity to the modern-day. Particularly important is their collection of 16-17th century European paintings.

#5. Vegan in Miami, Florida

One of the best cities in Florida, Miami is also one of the best places to find vegan cuisine. If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food, there is no better place than Charly’s Vegan Tacos. They don’t use any meat substitutes, but rather create their food wholly from fresh ingredients, creating a unique dining experience. They guarantee that even non-vegans will love their food.

If you’re looking for a more luxurious experience, Full Bloom is the place for you. Marketing themselves as gourmet vegan cuisine, with offerings like a chickpea tenderloin and a divine Caribbean curry, they really are a treat. This is one of the more expensive restaurants on this list, which makes it perfect for any extra-special occasion.
