If you’re plant-based, or looking for meatless Monday perfection. Atlanta’s got you covered.
No matter the reason, all of us should be cutting down on our meat consumption! That transition can be super tricky with all the delicious foods of the South on offer across Georgia. Luckily, Atlanta’s plant based scene has seen a dramatic change in scenery over recent years, and it’s never been a more perfect time to be vegan in the ATL.
From unbelievable burgers, to tasty health food hotspots. Atlanta’s got it all, and we’re going to break down some of our favorite plant based restaurants in the city.
Here’s 8 incredible vegan restaurants in Atlanta:
1. Slutty Vegan
Food truck to burger bar, there’s no doubt we had to kick off our list with Slutty Vegan. The plant based burger joint has become a beloved part of Atlanta’s cuisine scene. It’ll have even the most cavernous meat-eater questioning their choices with the impressive menu. We recommend the SloppyToppy, loaded with jalapeños, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, and their special Slut sauce.
2. Green Sprout
Where: Piedmont Heights
If you’re looking for tasty Asian comfort food then look no further. Providing the ATL with delicious plant based alternative to Asian favorites, Green Sprout is an excellent choice for Meatless Monday! You can’t leave without trying their veggie dumplings. They’re the star of the extensive menu available.
3. Bar Vegan
Where: Ponce City Market
It’s back to the brilliant mind behind Slutty Vegan. Pinky Cole recently expanded her empire to Ponce City Market. She made a strange collaboration choice but the results are unbelievable. Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks and Slutty Vegan have teamed up for Pinky’s new venture. It not only serves up vegan cheesesteaks, but it features immersive ‘bar theatre’.
4. Cafe Sunflower
Cafe Sunflower is an incredible option for plant-based brunch lovers. There’s two locations serving a varied range of cuisines, including vegan takes on Southwestern American staples. We can never decide between the Vegan Chicken & Waffles, or the Loaded Breakfast Burrito!
5. Soul Vegetarian
Where: West End/Five Little Points
With two locations across Atlanta, this popular vegetarian paradise is one of the OG veggie spots in the city. Their Divine Vegan Feasts will give you a taste of the entire menu in one sitting!
6. Herban Fix
For more Asian fusion deliciousness, head to Herban Fix. We recommend the spicy tofu soup! This steaming bowl is fragrant with mushrooms and spices, using only the freshest ingredients.
Where: Howell Mill
You have to check out Atlanta’s first and only permanent Vegan/Vegetarian Food Truck Park. That way you’ll get to experience several eateries at once! It’s an incredible outdoor space that transforms throughout the week to host several events, both weekly and seasonal! Atlanta Food Truck Park & Market offers cruelty-free food trucks, live music, seasonal markets and more! So what are you waiting for, Atlanta?
8. Tasilli Raw
Where: West End
If you’re looking for tasty and satisfying raw food then Tasilli Raw is for you! You have to try one of their wraps for lunch, Atlanta. If you do then Tasilli’s may become your new lunch go-to! There’s also an incredible smoothie bar available for a quick pick-me-up!
9. Plant Based Pizzeria
Saying away from pizza can be difficult when maintaining a vegan diet. Fortunately, Atlanta has that problem solved with Plant Based Pizzeria. You’ve got to try the Georgia Peach Pizza. This innovative pie is loaded with roasted peach, mushrooms, red peppers, vegan sausage, vegan cheese and more!
10. Lov’n It Live
Where: East Point
This laid-back East Point gem has a charming, laid back environment, with equal parts tasty and comforting raw/vegan dishes! The jazzy soundtrack compliments the welcoming service. We suggest trying out their Zucchini Lasagna for a real plant based treat.
11. Planted Soul
Where: Berkeley Park
To the naked eye, burgers from Planted Soul don’t look vegan, but they 100% are. Known by their fans for their plant-based shrimp, we recommend “surfing and turfing” it, with their Beyond Soul Burger and Fries. Add a vegan shrimp for $3 extra. You won’t regret it!
