St. Peter Food Co-op & Deli in Mankato, Minnesota
Nov 6 05

rating star

Nice selection of vegan items! I had the vegan chili from the deli, which good and reasonably priced. They have a food bar like whole foods that has lots of vegan options. They have gourmet vegan marshmallows here that I've never seen before, very expensive though, and alternative baking company cookies among other things.

Good Earth Food Co-op in Saint Cloud, Minnesota

This is a nice but little co-op. There is a small section of vegan sandwiches and bakery items near the deli. They carry many of the usual things like alternative baking cookies and chocolate decadence products.

Asia's Finest Restaurant in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Good service, fast take-out, and good vegan options. The mock duck rice noodle salads are excellent! The mock duck delight (mock duck in a brown sauce with assorted vegetables) is also good. The portions are generous.

Ban Thai Restaurant in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I spoke with the owner and he said that the mock chicken is all soy, and therefore vegan. I ordered the Gang Khiao Wan(Green Curry) with mock chicken and it was really good. The sauce was a bit spicy, but I think that's common for Thai food. You may want to order it mild if you don't like things very spicy.

The falafel here is terrific! The prices are very reasonable, and quite a few things can be made vegan.

I liked the food and the atmosphere. The vegetarian mock duck taco was really good and there seems to be really unique items to order here.

Caffrey's Deli and Subs in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 23 08

rating star

I had the vegan chicken sub with lettuce, tomato, and veganaise, which I would recommend. This place is great! They still don't have the veg. options listed on the menu though. FYI- the owner told me that he just ran out of the vegan chicken after making my order. He had to special order more, so it won't be available for a week or so.

Update: I also noticed that they have been out of mayo the last few times I've been there. Apparently they're not ordering more?? The vegan chicken sub is not nearly as good without it.

Caruso's Gelato Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

This place is pretty good. It's unique. It's kind of like Cold Stone Creamery, but there are vegan options. I guess they usually offer two different vegan soy flavors. The prices are a little bit expensive, but so is everything. This place is worth trying, I would say it's better than the soy ice cream you can buy at the store.

Cub Foods - University Ave, St. Paul in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 18 05

rating star

This Cub Foods isn't very comparable with the other Cub Foods stores I've been to in the Twin Cities. Although they have vegetarian and vegan stuff, what they have is lacking. Much of the time when I go here, I leave disappointed because I haven't found what I needed and have to go somewhere else. For example, things that can't be found here (for now anyway) are tofu sour cream, tempeh, gardenburger products, etc. If you're on University Avenue in St. Paul, try the Rainbow Foods next door for a much bigger veg. selection of products.

Excellent vegan soups, friendly service, and free breadsticks, this a great place for a quick lunch.

E Noodle Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

I've had some really unique and good food here.
The bean curd roll is really good, something I've never seen anywhere else. I would recommend the salt and pepper bean curd roll appetizer and the sesame bean curd roll dinner. The people here are very nice and it's locally owned and operated.

Update: I was in getting take out today and the owner said they are adding some new veg. items to the menu soon: homemade wonton soup and spring rolls. She gave me a one of the spring rolls with my order to try & it was fabulous. Definitely one of the best I've had. You can really tell the food here is homemade. Check this place out!

Evergreen Chinese Restaurant in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Sep 17 06

rating star

Evergreen is among the best of Twin Cities vegan cuisine. They have the most vegan options that I have come across. They have traditional Chinese dishes with options of mock beef, pork, chicken, and seafood.
The vegan wonton soup is among my favorites there. It comes as a very large portion at an extremely reasonable price,$2.00 for a large bowl! My favorite dinner entree is the curried mock duck, if you like curries will love this dish.

Fasika in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Feb 21 05

rating star

This place was really weird. The food tasted really weird and was served in piles on a cold, rubbery pancake type thing. If you are planning on coming here, I wouldn't bring anyone you may want to impress. The atmosphere is questionable. For the service, I don't think our waitress said anything to us, at all. She also forgot to mention that they don't have utensils there, you have to eat with your hands. Come here at your own risk!!!!

French Meadow Bakery and Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

Great Atmosphere and food, fancy with good vegan options and desserts. There is a new vegan special every day. The tempeh cutlet dinner is fantastic, highly recommended.
For the desserts I would recommend something other than the chocolate raspberry bars, which are pretty tasteless. The dessert selections vary and usually include vegan cake.

Update: The vegan turtle cake is my favorite dessert, also a great deal at $4 for a large slice.

Fresh and Natural Foods in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

This place is very impressive and I'm thrilled that it is so close to my apartment! This is the BEST market with veg options that I've ever been to. They have numerous items that I haven't found elsewhere. A few things they have include the line of Chreese products, Oats Creme, vegan gummi bears, a variety of veggie meats and cheeses, etc. They also have a deli which lists quite a few veggie selections, soups, and even vegan soft serve ice cream.

Update: This place has gone progressively downhill in the last couple of years. They stopped carrying lots of vegan items they used to have, and the prices on what they do have are constantly going up.

Galactic Pizza in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Aug 25 07

rating star

I had the greatest dinner here last night. The vegan garlic cheese bread was amazing, with a ton of vegan mozzarella melted perfectly. The best though was the pizza. It was a build your own with bianca sauce, vegan mozzarella, vegan chicken, and broccoli. The best vegan pizza I've ever had hands down. If you like that kind of thing try it out. It reminded me of those non-vegan alfredo pizzas my boyfriend always orders in that I'm jealous of. The cheese on the pizza was melted perfectly, though I have to agree with others that this can be hit or miss. I would say that Galactic makes the best vegan pizzas of any other place around.

Grand Italian Ice Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota
May 11 06

rating star

This place is great! I spoke to the owner today and she confirmed that all italian ice flavors are VEGAN!! (Although she was unsure at first what vegan meant, she said they were all free of animal products and told me what ingredients were in them.)

There are lots of great flavors to choose from, definitely check it out!

Hard Times Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Oct 29 05

rating star

I like that Hard Times has so many vegan options, is open late, and it's collectively run! Their vegan shortbread cookies are my favorite thing there and the selection of vegan baked goods is impressive! I'm not a big fan of the food though. I've ate food here twice and just recently tried their tofu scramble and it was pretty bland.

Huong Sen Restaurant in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 16 07

rating star

The service here is friendly and the atmosphere is nicely decorated. The staff speak English and can answer any questions about what is vegan, vegetarian, etc. The veg. options here are numerous and include items like curried mock duck and sesame tofu. I had the curried mock duck, mock duck seasoned with curry and topped with peanuts. It was good, but I think I've gotten spoiled by Evergreen's curry. The curry here is not as saucy as other curry dishes I've had in the past and it is a little above average price.

Izzy's Ice Cream Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Great homemade soy ice cream! They usually offer between 2-3 flavors of soy now each day, with varieties that change. I've had the chocolate, chocolate almond, strawberry, and blueberry and they're all good.

I love this place! Their drinks are the best in town as well as being healthy, and freshly prepared.

There's a variety of new 100% fruit smoothies that are all vegan. Soy milk is also offered now and it's a main ingredient in most of the drinks.

Linden Hills Co-op in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Aug 23 05

rating star

This is my new favorite co-op. They have an awesome selection of everything. First, the deli is very vegan friendly. I tried a vegan BLT with nayonaise and tempeh bacon, which was great. I also had vegan potato salad which was good.
I noticed they have many vegan bakery items like scones, and a numerous selection of vegan cookies. They also have a large variety of non-dairy ice creams and soy delicious flavors that I haven't seen elsewhere.

Muddy Paws Cheesecake in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 21 07

rating star

The best cheesecake ever! I wouldn't even try to go anywhere else for cheesecake, b/c it won't beat this place. I've noticed that they usually have between 1-4 kinds of vegan to choose from on any given day. The fruit ones, raspberry swirl, blueberry and cherry are excellent and are available frequently. Other vegan flavors I've seen have included pumpkin, almond, chocolate swirl, and chocolate. The atmosphere is also very nice and it's a great place to go for dessert.

Great mock duck! A little on the spendy side with smaller portions.

P.F. Chang's China Bistro in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Nov 14 04

rating star

P.F. Chang's is so good. They have great vegan entrees that are very flavorful and come in larger portions. The prices are also reasonable with most of the dishes being priced from 6-7 dollars. Whenever I eat there I have enough food left over to eat the next day. My favorite thing is the coconut curry vegetables stir fry with tofu. If in doubt, you should order that. You won't be disappointed.

Pei Wei in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I had a rice bowl that was really good, a large portion for $6.50. The veggies are really fresh and they use some interesting tofu that is marinated and comes in thin strips. This place is pretty veg. friendly if you're in the suburbs.

Pizza Luce in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Great vegan options! A large variety of vegan pizzas, pasta, and sandwiches.

Update: The new menu has soy cheese that is vegan! The vegan cheese toast appetizer with the new soy cheese reminds me exactly of the real thing. Other new things are vegan sausage and pepperoni pizza toppings. With the new cheese and pizza toppings, I think this is the best place to get vegan pizza in Minneapolis now!

Q Cumbers in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 27 05

rating star

Q Cumbers is one of my new favorite places in the Twin Cities. This place has the best salad bar around. They have things most salad bars don't, like more than one type of lettuce, chickpeas, and a big selection of toppings. In addition, they always have hot veg. food and soups. The restaurant atmosphere is also very pleasing, probably a little bit on the fancy side. The only downfall to this place is that the desserts consist mainly of fruit. Anyway, if you like buffets, you should definitely try this place.

Rainbow Foods - Midway in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 27 05

rating star

The Midway Rainbow Foods has a good selection of veg. products, much more to pick from than Cub, and probably the best within the Midway area. They have many frozen things like Morningstar Farms products, Boca products and a few Gardenburger items. Their selection of vegan ice cream is not very large though. The main reason for shopping here instead of the Cub next door is that Rainbow actually has things like tempeh and seitan.

Seward Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

The Seward Cafe has a large variety of vegan breakfast options, vegans can have tofu "eggs", pancakes, biscuits and gravy and other popular diner foods. I had the vegan biscuits and gravy with broccoli and a vegan pancake and they were both pretty good.

Taste of India in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jul 5 05

rating star

Taste of India has a lunch good buffet and vegetarian/vegan carryout specials during the Monday-Friday lunch hour. I'm not sure if they have the buffet at any other times, but it may be worth checking out. The veggie take out special that I ordered came with a large variety of food including a dessert for around $6. The service is very good and the staff can speak English well and know which options are vegetarian and vegan.

The food here is good, with lots of vegetarian & vegan options. The place, on the other hand, is trashy. I would come back if they cleaned the place up.

Golden Palace in Willmar, Minnesota
Aug 11 05

rating star

First of all, I'm very excited to see that there is a vegetarian section on the menu. Before now, I hadn't been able to think of any really veg. friendly places in Willmar.
The food is good and the presentation is even better. I'm not such a huge fan of the sauces though. Both sauces that came with the Ma Po Tofu and the Braised Bean Curd & Vegetables were a little boring. However, this is a nice place to go, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is great.

Candle 79 in Manhattan, New York City

This place is fabulous. I had a butternut squash risotto dish with a cream sauce. My boyfriend had the pasta special of the day, which was alfredo with vegetables. We both enjoyed the food but our favorite thing here was the chocolate and peanut butter mousse cake dessert. Dining here is pricey, it ran us about $60 for lunch including a tip, but well worth it for something out of the ordinary.

Gianna's Grille in Philadelphia Metro, Pennsylvania
Jan 16 07

rating star

There's many non-traditional veg. food items here that are vegan, including vegan cheesesteaks. The cheesesteak I had was good, but nothing I would brag about. The desserts here, however, were amazing. They have a huge selection of all kinds of vegan cakes as well as other bakery items. The chocolate chip cookie dough cake was my favorite.
