Hip in Flagstaff, Arizona

This place deserves more love than it seems to be getting. It was dead when I went in. (it was only 4:30p thought)

The food I had was incredibly fresh, healthy, and delicious. They have a lot of raw options, and great raw desserts, as well as cooked choices.

I really hope they are getting enough business, Hip is a great restaurant!

I spent several days in Flagstaff, and my mom and I ate here every day.

Someone mentioned that breakfast wasn't good for vegans - I thoroughly enjoyed it! They have great vegan pastries - which stretch beyond just muffins and cookies. It was nice to have the healthy addition of oatmeal or couscous with fruit and steamed soy milk every morning. When we were there, they did have vegan waffles, but I didn't try any.

They also roast their own coffee beans - and they make amazing lattes!

I can't believe I have only been to this place once! As many others have said, the selection in sparse for vegans, but they had both blueberry and peanut butter, so I was more than happy.

I had blueberry on a sugar cone with a peanut butter Izzy (baby scoop on top of the big one. It was wonderful on one of the first 80 degree afternoons of the spring. I highly recommend Izzy's. They just need to make some vegan waffle cones!

Midori's Floating World Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Midori’s Floating World Café is a little known Japanese restaurant in Minneapolis with a large menu and plenty of vegan options. Japanese food isn’t all fish and rice - they offer everything from vegan tempura, to big bowls of soba noodles. The waiters are attentive and are very accommodating if you tell them you are vegan. The restaurant is small and cozy – but I went with a group of eight people and they were able to accommodate us.
Midori’s is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, dinner on Sunday, and is closed Mondays. They close at 2pm after lunch and reopen at 5pm for dinner. Also, they just changed locations, but only a few hundred feet from the old location.
Though Japanese cuisine is known for the use of fish in just about everything, Midori does a wonderful job of preparing great, vegan meals. A big bowl of steamy edamame, sprinkled with course salt is my favorite thing to start a Japanese meal with, even with the large selection of hot and cold appetizers on the menu. To drink, I had one of their beautiful “art teas”. Whole flowers bloom in the bottom of large, clear mugs to create a flavorful and appealing drink. For a main course, I ordered the vegetarian sushi dinner, which includes: ten pieces of rolled sushi, six pieces of nigiri sushi, salad, and a shiitake broth soup.
Though everything I tried was delicious, if you just can’t decide, I would recommend trying one of their bento boxes. You can get them with vegan tempura and sushi, and they all come with soup, Japanese pickles, salad and a few other things.
Other than the sushi and bento boxes there is udon and soba noodles, donburi, onigiri, soups, salads, and, if you have room, deserts.
I highly recommend Midori’s Floating World Café. It’s a great place to experience a wonderful Japanese meal.

They don't have a ton of vegetarian options here, but it is so so good if you want some sushi! There sushi is some of the best I have had, its colorful, creative and full of delicious veggies.

I am eating some sushi from yesterday right now, and other than the avocado, it is still just as good.

Also, the staff is really friendly, I was able to practice a little Japanese, and the went along with it and helped me out. It was fun.

Seward Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

My all time favorite things to get here are hash browns and the gluten-free pancakes. They make THE BEST gf pancakes ever, they are fluffy, and slightly crispy. Better than the regular ones. The food is fairly cheap, and they have tons of vegan options.

They always have a few vegan baked goods, and lots of good beverages, hot and cold.

Seward is more family-friendly than their competition, and they have a more eclectic range of customers. So if your not into the Triple Rock or Hard Times scene this might be the place for you.

The Wedge Co-op in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I unfortunately live too far from The Wedge to be a regular shopper, but occasionally I do stop in for some treats.

They have a great selection of vegan options, including the much hyped Teese vegan Cheese. They are the only place I have seen carrying in the area.

They also have vegan soft-serve, which I think tends to be a secret. Whenever I get it, people always ask "did you get that here?". They used to only have vanilla, but they have added chocolate, so you can get yummy swirl cones now as well.

They have a big deli area, and a lot of fresh baked breads. And of course tons of produce and other nice things.

I love stone soup. They always have yummy vegan baked goods, sandwiches, and soups served with artisan bread.

They also have a hot bar, and a salad bar - both with yummy vegan food. They even sell vegan pizza by the slice. Yum!

The Grateful Bread in River Falls, Wisconsin

I haven't been in in awhile, but they make a good roasted tofu sandwich, loaded with veggies and olive oil and vinegar. There bread is either excellent or hard as a rock. Saturday mornings/early afternoons seem to be the best time to go there.

Mariachi Loco in River Falls, Wisconsin

The best place in River Falls for vegans. They have a small, but good vegetarian menu. The vegetarian items don't come with cheese unless specified. The best thing on the menu is the veg fajitas, its big, and hot (served on skillet) and flavorful. You can get corn or flour tortillas. The sauce is great, and they use a large variety of vegetables, not just onions and pepper.

The serve warm chips, with yummy salsa while you wait.

The guac has sour cream in it though!

Its cheap to. Usually less than $7 per person for large servings.

For vegans, they have veg lo-mein, fried tofu with veggies, sauteed veggies, and steamed veggies. The sauces are basically all the same sweet and salty sauces. Your average chinese-american food.

I found a couple pieces of shrimp and some chicken in my tofu (not normally in there!) and I haven't had any desire to eat there since.

I love this place. I know almost everyone who works here and I always see people I know shopping. Great for produce and bulk! Not a ton of "omni-subs" but enough. Super good deals if you volunteer!
