10 L.A. Coffee Shops That Serve Vegan Food

There are more coffee shops in LA than there are cars on the 405 during rush hour traffic! If you’re not familiar with LA traffic, that’s a lot! So how do you choose which ones to go to? The first requirement on our checklist is good vegan menu items! Okay, that’s the only requirement on our list—but here are our top picks for LA coffee spots that are more vegan than your mainstream almond milk carrying coffee shop!

The Palm Coffee Bar

Burbank

This coffee bar puts its best vibes forward with vegan options galore! Satisfy your hunger with an array of salads made by Thistle, rotating cookie flavors from The Naughty Cookie, a Brownie Cookie or Sweet Potato Galette from Sugarbloom Bakery, Cookie Dough from Bites of Luv, MUSH Overnight Oats, prebiotic energy bars by Naturally Clean Eats, and more! Add a splash of almond, macadamia, soy, coconut, or oat milk to any beverage (except blended beverages) to make them vegan! The Sweet Creature Latte (yes, that’s a Harry Styles-themed drink!) is made with oat milk, cardamom, and rose! We know where we’re going today!

Javista

Hollywood

This stop in the heart of Hollywood is the perfect place for any caffeine-loving vegan hipster! Their plant-based milk options include almond, hemp, and oat milk, with plenty to choose from in the vegan eats category as well! Try their Mediterranean or Vegan Delight sandwich, Avocado Toast, Avocado Split, Hummus Bagel, and Cream Cheese Bagel (ask for Tofutti cream cheese!) There’s also a plethora of vegan pastries such as vegan muffins in Blueberry, Almond & Cherry, and Peaches & Cream flavors as well as gluten-free Coconut Delights! If you’re on the run, cop one of their vegan grab-n-go items for the road!

Muddy Paw Coffee

Silver Lake and Eagle Rock

Whether you’re a college student missing your pup from home, a dog owner looking for a cafe to take your furry friend, or you just love vegan options, Muddy Paw Coffee is for you! Not only does this coffee shop offer vegan food and drink options, but they take the term “dog-friendly” to a new level with their dog park (Eagle Rock) and patio (Silver Lake!). All of their beverages can be made vegan when ordered with oat, almond, macadamia, or soy milk! To pair with your drink of choice, order a vegan empanada from Nonna’s Empanadas in Chik’n Jalapeno, Chik’n Salsa Verde, Beyond Meat, or Beyond Meat Philly flavors! After that, indulge in the vegan and gluten-free confections made by Hello Cake Girl! To make things even sweeter, 10% of their proceeds are donated to a local animal rescue (receiving organization is rotated every 60 days!) Additionally, Muddy Paw hosts adoption events, dog training sessions, and other fun events with no shortage of vegan options!

Breakfast Burritos, Superfood Pancakes, Bagel Sandwiches, Cinnamon Toast, and Breakfast Pizzas are just a few of their A.M. beauties! What in the world comes on a Breakfast Pizza? Cashew cheese or tomato sauce with tofu egg, spinach, white potato, chorizo, bell peppers, jalapeños, mushrooms, mozzarella, parmesan, cilantro, and green onion! For lunch or dinner, polish off a burger, pizza, bowl, handheld, or their famous Cheesy Mac ‘n Joi!

Black Dog Coffee

Miracle Mile

Start your morning off on the right foot by complementing your almond or soy milk-infused drink with a Bagel Deluxe, Bagel with cream cheese, Low Fat Granola, or Toast! For lunch, order their Vegan Cheeseburger Deluxe, Veggie Sandwich, or your choice of Chili, Chicago, Caesar, Wasabi Peanut Slaw, or Build-Your-Own hot dogs! (They’re all vegan when ordered with the Field Roast Frankenfurter!) Now we understand why they have the word “Dog” in their name!

Philz Coffee

Multiple Locations

If you like to customize your cup of joe, you’ll want to check out Philz! All of their beverage blends are vegan (except the Mocha Tesora) and everything can be made hot or iced! To lighten up your coffee, add in vanilla soy, oat, or almond milk! Be sure to come hungry because they’ve got loads of vegan eats, too! The pastry display showcases the most angelic vegan donuts from Blue Star Donuts as well as vegan and gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownies, and Blueberry Muffins from Rising Hearts Bakery! (Pro-tip: ask for your pastry warmed up!) As for the savory items, the Avocado Toast and Energy Bowls can be made vegan when ordered without egg, and the Philz Bagel can be veganized by subbing the cream cheese with hummus, avocado, or almond butter! If you forgot to pack a lunch for later, pick from their Chickpea and Kale Salad, Asian Noodle Salad, Energy Bites, Overnight Oats, or Chocolate Mousse to take to-go!
