10 Best Vegan Restaurants in Los Angeles

Whether you’re a native, tourist, vegan, or non-vegan, you won’t want to miss eating at these top plant-based restaurants in LA!

We love the huge selection of plant-based eateries in LA, but it can be a bit overwhelming when deciding where to go for dinner. That’s where we come into play! After noshing on our fair share of plant-based dishes around town, we’ve created a list (in no particular order) of the 10 best vegan restaurants in LA that have amazing menus, good customer service, and an overall great experience.

Little Pine

Silver Lake

This Silver Lake gem is the premier stop for testing out innovative vegan meals in an aesthetic ambiance with the occasional celebrity sighting! Little Pine’s menu showcases the classic dishes they gained their popularity for, like the Chicken Piccata, as well as a wide variety of unique flavor-bending items like the Jalapeño Cheddar French Toast and Apple Sandwich. In addition, Little Pine’s beautiful, spacious patio is perfect for pups to enjoy the dog menu alongside their humans.

Nic’s On Beverly

Beverly Grove

Nic’s On Beverly is our go-to spot for a fancy night (or day) out with a flavorful vegan flair. From their stunning outdoor area and gracious staff to their menu which highlights the finest flavors and textures of cultures from all across the globe, this plant-based hot spot is the real deal. Some of our favorite dishes to order include the Gratin Fries, Caesar Salad, Balsamic Detroit-Style Pizza, and of course, the Banana Split! Want something to drink? Nic’s On Beverly offers a selection of beautifully crafted cocktails and mocktails curated by LA’s iconic mixologist, Jason Eisner.

Crossroads Kitchen

Beverly Grove

If this renowned plant-based restaurant isn’t already on the bucket list of every vegan across the US, it should be! Crossroads opened in 2013 under the direction of founder and chef, Tal Ronnen. The restaurant’s Mediterranean-inspired cuisine has won over the hearts and taste buds of just about everyone who’s dined there—from full-blown vegans all the way to plant-based skeptics. Some of the most talked-about Crossroads dishes are the Artichoke Oysters, Calamari Fritti, Tagliatelle Bolognese, and Spaghetti Carbonara (topped with a mind-blowingly realistic vegan egg yolk)!

Margo’s Bar + Kitchen

Santa Monica

In case you missed it, Margo’s Bar + Kitchen is now 100% vegan! Over the past few months, the restaurant has undergone some serious renovations and menu adjustments and has become one of the hottest plant-based restaurants in town. On the menu, we recommend trying the creamy Cacio e Pepe, perfectly-baked Mushroom Pizza, and Banh Mi Sandwich that’s bursting with flavor. Best of all, the plates are very moderately priced, given the neighborhood, ambiance, and ingredients used by the restaurant. Bravo!

Plant Food + Wine

Venice

Want to dress up and go somewhere swanky? Pay a visit to this upscale, plant-based paradise, and dine on exquisite meals curated by the acclaimed vegan chef, Matthew Kenney. Presenting beautifully plated meals using locally sourced ingredients alongside a wide variety of organic vegan wines, Plant Food + Wine is not to be missed. Pro tip: Order the Cheese Plate as an appetizer—it’s our favorite.

O’cado

Sherman Oaks

Whatever the craving or occasion, O’cado has a dish and drink for you! The food lineup features a glorious amalgamation of American classics as well as Mediterranean and Latin-inspired bites. Some of our favorites include the Crab Cakes, Brussels Sprouts, Chimichurri Garlic Fries, Spicy Nachos, and O’cado Burger. The beverage menu highlights a variety of craft beer, sustainable wines, and refreshing cocktails. We suggest stopping by during happy hour to save some coin!

O'cado

Shojin

Downtown LA & Culver City

Calling all sushi lovers! Shojin is the leading stop for vegan Japanese fare, including gyoza, miso soup, ramen, sushi, and more. Their health-conscious menu is 100% vegan, gluten-free, macrobiotic, and organic—with soy-, garlic-, onion-, and sesame-free options. Shojin is known for their authentic cuisine, high-quality ingredients, sophisticated plating, and hospitable staff. The Spicy “Tuna” on Crispy Rice, Baked “Crab Cake” Hand Roll, Dynamite Roll, and Matcha Tiramisu are just a few notable mentions.

SunCafe

Studio City

From kale shakes to skillet mac ‘n’ cheese, this spot has it all! SunCafe is a staple in the Los Angeles vegan scene. Their nutrient-dense dishes are masterfully created by owner and celebrity chef, Ron Russell. Russell is known for healthifying just about every dish under the sun—get it? Our go-to items are the Super Sun Nachos, Lettuce Leaf Tacos, Caesar Salad, Cacao Superfood Shake, and a slice of Cookie Dough Cheesecake. And most of those offerings are raw or can be requested raw if that’s your jam.

SunCafe

Pura Vita

West Hollywood & Redondo Beach

Pura Vita, founded by Italian-American Tara Punzone, is the leading destination for vegan pasta, pizza, gelato, tiramisu, and all-things-Italian. One of our favorite elements about this spot is the overwhelming amount of gluten-free options they offer—from Spaghetti Carbonara and Baked Ricotta to Chocolate Fudge Cake and “Nutella” Pizza! For the ultimate selection of pizza and calzones, check out Pura Vita Pizzeria next door to their West Hollywood location. Yep, their pizza is so good, it has its own restaurant!

Pura Vita

Monty’s Good Burger

Beverly Grove, Echo Park, Culver City, Koreatown, & Riverside

If we could describe Monty’s Good Burger in one phrase, it would be “where streetwear culture meets dank vegan food!” The menu of this trendy vegan burger joint features classic burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, fries, tots, and milkshakes that can be customized to the nth degree. One of their most iconic dishes is The Dog Pile, a tray of tots or fries (or 50/50) loaded up with two Impossible burger patties, melted cheese, grilled onions, and all of their sauces. Speaking of sauce, Monty’s sells the sickest merchandise, too! Check out their Instagram for special merch and menu collaborations.
