The Non-Vegan Guide To Vegan In Los Angeles
Are you looking for Los Angeles vegan restaurants?
I’ll be honest. I’m not vegan or even vegetarian. I eat meat, seafood, and cheese. But to offset my eating ways, I often turn to vegetarian and vegan food. Being based (formerly) in Los Angeles helps. This city loves anything fitness or health-related!! I prefer to make vegan meals at home but here are some options if I’m going out for a vegan meal in Los Angeles.

Larchmont, Venice, and DTLA
Cafe Gratitude is a vegan restaurant group from San Fran. They have two locations here in LA. It’s a bit pricey but mind you vegan dining in general is.

West Hollywood Vegan
Do you love Mexican food? No worries vegan friends! Gracias Madre has you covered. This is a Mexican vegan restaurant in West Hollywood. I came here last year for lunch with a friend. We had some delicious options but my favourite were the margaritas! The patio area is awesome if you’re a fan of outdoor dining.
Mmmmm Mexican vegan!

Several Locations Throughout California
Veggie Grill is a vegan fast food chain. It’s good. I eat there a bunch and I’m not vegan. Not everything is awesome but I love their Buffalo Chik’n like no other!
Ok I might have posted two versions of the Buffalo “Chik’n”
Juice in LA is a big deal. There’s Pressed Juicery, Erewhon, and more popping up by the second. Clover (now rebranded as Little West) is pretty close to where I live. I picked some up after coming back from Asia with serious illness and I swear it expedited the whole sick process. The juice is good. I know it’s debatable but how bad can consuming fruits and vegetables be? In moderation of course.
If you’re on the West Side and have a hankering for Juice, visit Moon Juice in Venice. I’d never been here before but I was sick and my friend loaded me up on juice so I could get my vitamins.
Other Los Angeles Vegan recommendations:
Hugo’s Tacos – I’ve eaten here. Vegan and vegetarian options. I like this place when I’m in Atwater Village. They have other locations too. I only have photos of a fish taco.
Sage on Sunset – I went here recently with my vegan friend. I wasn’t wowed but my potato taco was pretty good. I did order this coconut creme brulee from their shop to take home and that was awesome. No photos.
Crossroads – I am not 100% endorsing this place because it’s more of an upscale vegan place and for a meat eater, it’s pricey for the amount of food that you get. I left hungry yet spent $75. The food was delicious though and if I were vegan this would be my spendy meal spot. For my true vegan friends, they love it. We may have had a Heidi Fleiss in sweatpants sighting here.
Do you have other vegan places you like to eat at in LA? I don’t venture much over to the westside a lot. I’m sure there are loads there. I want to try Kippy’s Ice Cream but I never go out that way.
