You are here

Atlanta!

We are headed to Atlanta for spring break.  Do you have any suggestions for restaurants for vegans?

Thanks!

I've heard great things about the Sunflower Cafe. I've not been there personally, but I will go one day. I know there's a Cosmo's vegan shoppe. If you go out into the suburbs, there's a place called Life Cafe and grocery out in Marietta. Again, I've not been there, but I've heard excellent things from my few contacts.

I know CK will be here shortly. He'd better be.

Haven't seen you on the boards in FOREVER!  Hope all is well!

I know nothing about Atlanta though, sorry.

A day late... ::)

Cafe Sunflower is quite good.  They have two locations, I have been to the one on Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.  I've only been there once, but what I had was yummy!  I had sweet & sour chick'n served on brown rice and a special tea that they had...I think it was raspberry flavored.  Thanks, now I want some of that tea!  Katie had some mushroom pasta that she wasn't too crazy about.
They have a nice variety of things, here's a link to their site:

R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Atlanta is awesome as well!  They are open 24 hours a day and the restaurant is very quirky.  I don't recommend going on a cold day/night, the restaurant is inside of a huge tent.  Seriously.  Supposedly, they have entertainers (like magicians and card readers) come late at night.  The staff is very nice and the food is very good.

If you're in the mood for Chinese, Chinese Buddha and Harmony Vegetarian are fantastic.  I haven't been to Harmony in a while though.  Both of these restaurants are in a weird place; Chinese Buddha is underneath a hotel or something in Atlanta off of 10th street and Harmony is off of Buford Hwy...which is almost the equivalent of another country.  I would recommend Chinese Buddha because it will be easier to find unless you can read Chinese / Korean.  Plus, it has gotten a lot more tasty since they relocated and it's open late.

If you're in the mood for bbq and down home / Southern comfort food, go to Soul Vegetarian.  There are two locations for this as well, I have been to the one on N Highland Ave in Atlanta (Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe is also on N Highland).  They don't have a website or a menu that I could readily find, but the kinds of food are pretty much what you'd expect; BBQ, mac & cheeze, collards, that sort of thing.

I went to Life Cafe to have lunch once, but I didn't get anything because I wasn't feeling what they had on the menu (I think they had soup on the menu that day and I wasn't in the mood for soup).  I have also heard good things about that place.
There's also a vegetarian Indian restaurant called Vatica right down the street from me that I haven't eaten at yet for some reason.  I have heard that place is good as well.

I'll post more if I think of them.

check out World Peace Cafe - it's awesome, i had a really great kale mushroom soup & tomato, tofu sandwich (the tofu was just like buffalo mozzarella - like a caprese sandwich or something)  so delicious.  and i had a awesome sweet potato cupcake w/ cream cheese frosting... mmmm..

willy's burritos is great for a super cheap & quick option, they have a marinated tofu option for their burritos & it's pretty tasty.

at soul veg, i had the chickn fried steak but thought it was just ok, i liked the gyro better.. the greens & the salad dressing they use was really good though.. the pecan ice cream wasnt amazing.

and like always - a great thing to do is just go to yelp.com and type vegan into the search engine.. sometimes things pop up at very unvegan restaurants.

oh - and also, theres a place called flying biscuit - they had a bar in their baked goods case labeled vegan but it wasnt labeled a flavor or anything so i asked what was in it, and the dude told me 'honey'..  so you may wanna ask if you're interested if getting it - in case they changed the recipe.

I was just reading that Atlanta is a pretty good walking city.  Let me know if that's true.  I'm looking for a warm place to live where everyone walks/bikes/takes public transportation everywhere and is vegan friendly!

In my experience, some parts of the city are more walkable than others, but for the most part, it's pretty good.

We got back from our trip last night, and it was wonderful.

The R Thomas Deluxe Grille and the World Peace Cafe were especially great.  We also enjoyed Thai food at Spoon - very good. 

Again, thanks for the great advice!

aw, I missed this thread...

I'm glad You had a good time, Robin!
Next time You're in the area, You simply MUST visit the Little 5 Points area and check out Planet Bombay. ...I go on and on about this place here, but really, it's the second best Indian food I've ever eaten, every dish I've tried is awesome, and the prices are unbeatable. (#1 best was at a very expensive place, once)
Their menu is loaded with vegan options... there are various vegetable curries, tofu dishes, dal, chana masala, and other good stuff. Their portions are really good-sized, too.  ;)b

anywho, L5P is a good place to visit for a million other reasons....but We'll have to wait until Your next vacation to see You around!  ;)
