Boston is a blossoming city for plant-based diets. New, vegan-friendly restaurants are popping up around every corner. Here's a list of the best vegan/vegetarian restaurants in the greater Boston area.

Whole Heart Provisions

1. Whole Heart Provisions

Whole Heart Provisions, located in Allston, is nested on a street full of veg-friendly restaurants. Whole Heart Provisions itself offers a wide variety of bowls as well as the choice to make your own from their lengthy list of vegetables, grains, and legumes. My personal recommendation is to use the crispy chickpeas, peanut sauce, and brown rice and quinoa pilaf as the base. Don't forget to grab a side of their roasted Brussels sprouts, which are to die for!

Afterward, if you still have some room left in your stomach, you can walk down a few storefronts and find yourself in front of Fomu, a 100% vegan, coconut-based ice cream chain. They also have some amazing baked goods in-store!

2. Veggie Galaxy

Next on the list is Veggie Galaxy, located in Central Square in Cambridge. Veggie Galaxy has all-day breakfast, and their waffles are mouth-watering. Make sure to get some fruit on top as well! They also offer a wide selection of sandwiches and veggie burgers. Although they aren't fully vegan, every item on the menu can be made vegan if requested! Make sure to grab one of their cakes on the way out, especially the Taza chocolate cake—it's so rich and moist!

3. Taco Party

Although slightly out-of-the-way, Taco Party is a restaurant that you don't want to miss. Their 100% vegan menu offers tacos (of course!), tortas, nachos, and a wide selection of sides. They also have some amazing desserts! If you bring along a non-veg friend, make sure they get the tofu taco—the tofu is crispy-fried to perfection and can change even a meat-lover's mind.



JUGO'S is located just outside of Back Bay station, a few blocks off of Newbury Street. From my (extensive) research and experience, JUGO'S offers the best acai bowls in Boston. They have a huge menu and five different types of bowls as well as smoothies, juices, toasts, and fruits. Note: JUGO'S does not offer seating unfortunately, but Copley Square is close by and has a lot of benches!


5. Zhu

Zhu is also slightly out of the way, but it's the best vegan Asian restaurant in the area. As a pan-Asian restaurant, they have a large menu filled with vegetable and soy-protein based meals. Their Thai iced tea is delicious, as is their tofu teriyaki sizzling platter (pictured above).

6. Life Alive

Last but certainly not least is Life Alive, which is also located in Central Square. Life Alive is a vegetarian restaurant that, in my opinion, can't be beat by anyone else. They offer warm bowls filled with vegetables and a grain base as well as a lot of smoothies and acai bowls. What makes their bowls so amazing are the sauces that they put on them. My personal favorites are the ginger nama shoyu sauce and the miso sauce. The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely as well—it's filled with plants, books, warm lighting, and couches, so it's the perfect place to read a book or grab food with friends.


Those are my favorite plant-based restaurants in Boston. Other notables are By Chloe, Fruition Vegan Kitchen, Mother Juice, Pressed, My Thai Vegan Cafe, and True Bistro if you want a more upscale experience.

Can you think of any I forgot? Let me know in the comments!
