10 Must-Try Vegan Restaurants in Los Angeles

We’ve gathered up 10 of the best vegan restaurants in Los Angeles. Whether you’re visiting for the weekend or make LA your home, these are a must-try!

Suncafe Organic

Studio City

This organic vegan restaurant located in the valley is great for brunch or happy hour. At Suncafe, you’ll find fresh ingredients with made-from-scratch quality. Try their house-made cheeses, mayo, and vegan butter.

Shojin

DTLA and Culver City

In the mood for vegan sushi? Head to Shojin. Experience nutritious Japanese dishes in a relaxing environment.

Gracias Madre

West Hollywood

Gracias Madre is one of our favorites! All-vegan Mexican cuisine with amazing specials. Go during happy hour 3-6 pm Monday through Friday for $7 nachos, tacos, margaritas, and more!

Ramen Hood

DTLA

Located in Grand Central Market, this 100% vegan ramen bar is perfect for a quick lunch while taking in the downtown sights. And grab that camera. Their vegan egg is amazingly Instagrammable.

Au Lac

DTLA and Fountain Valley

Looking for something for a special occasion? Try Au Lac. Vietnamese-inspired dishes using organic, natural ingredients. The Sweet Potato Shrimp is a must-try.

Crossroads Kitchen

West Hollywood

Upscale vegan dishes in an elegant environment. Go for dinner or brunch. We recommend the chicken and waffles or the breakfast sandwich. Another great spot for special occasions.

Doomie’s

Hollywood

Doomie’s is the place to go when you’re on the hunt for comfort food or after a late night with friends. Open until midnight on week nights and until 3am on the weekends, this little spot offers amazing finds such as the Peanut Butter and Bacon Burger. Craving Mexican comfort food? Yep, they’ve got that, too. Check out Doomie’s NextMex, their newest venture located right next door.

Save room for dessert! Cocobella Creamery, Los Angeles’ all-vegan ice cream shop, is in the same strip mall as Doomie’s.

Great news! Doomie’s will soon be opening a second location in Culver City.

Krimsey’s Cajun Kitchen

North Hollywood

The world’s first Cajun vegan restaurant! Run by a Louisiana native, Krimsey’s offers all those Cajun favorites. Order up some jambalaya, hushpuppies, cornbread, po’ boys, and more! As an added bonus, Krimsey’s kitchen is 100% soy-free.

Real Food Daily

West Hollywood, Pasadena, and LAX

A long-time Los Angeles favorite, RFD offers organic, plant-based dishes using quality ingredients. Check out the happy hour from 3 -7pm on Mon-Fri. A couple of our favorites are the nachos and Argentine Wrap.

Sage Vegan Bistro

Culver City, Echo Park, and Pasadena

With multiple locations and a pop-up food truck, Sage offers a little something for everyone. We suggest starting with apps. The buffalo wings and soft pretzels are a must!
