10 of the Best Vegan Sandwiches in Los Angeles

Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? With an infinite combination of ingredients between two pieces of bread, there’s a sandwich out there for everyone. And LA has no shortage of great vegan sandwiches, so, here’s a diverse list of some of its best.


Hollywood, Venice, West Hollywood, and Downtown LA

Your order: The Reuben

At Locali, a gourmet deli market with a few locations throughout the LA area, order The Reuben. It comes automatically made vegan, and is considered one of the spot’s most popular items. It’s marinated vegan deli slices, vegan cheese, sauerkraut, and homemade vegan Russian dressing, all on rye bread and panini-pressed.


Long Beach and Costa Mesa

Your order: Old Town Grilled Cheese

For a delectable spin on a childhood classic, head to fully-vegan Seabirds for their Old Town Grilled Cheese. This crispy sandwich consists of Cashew Gruyere spread, creamy basil avocado sauce, and American cheese on sourdough bread.

Lento Market

Echo Park

Your order: Breakfast Croissant

Looking for a go-to breakfast sandwich? Then get a taste of Lento Market’s Breakfast Croissant. This vegan market’s take on a morning delight is a croissant filled with grilled tofu, avocado, provolone cheese, and homemade pesto sauce.

Krimsey’s Cajun Kitchen

North Hollywood

Your order: New Orleans Poboy

Take a trip down to Louisiana, with a New Orleans Poboy from Krimsey’s Cajun Kitchen’s–the world’s first Cajun vegan restaurant. This one’s described as seasoned and battered hearts of palm on toasted French sourdough bread with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, crunchy dill pickles, and creamy spicy house sauce–plus a side of chips.

Green Table Café

If you’re looking for a yummy veggie sandwich, then check out Green Table Café.

Downtown LA

Your order: Red Eye

For the kid in all of us, PB.J LA is serving up 100% plant-based twists on traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. One of their most popular items is their Red Eye, which is espresso peanut butter and dark chocolate raspberry jam between two slices of white bread, then pressed and cut like a pocket sandwich, with the crusts off.

Native Foods

Various Locations

Your order: Meatball Sub

Get a little taste of Italy with Native Foods’ Meatball sub. This sandwich is a toasted baguette filled with spicy seitan meatballs, marinara sauce, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, pumpkin seed pesto, creamy ranch dressing, and Parmesan cheese.

Mendocino Farms

Various Locations

Your order: Hodo Banh Mi

Mendocino Farms specializes in sandwiches, so it’s no surprise they can make a good banh mi. A totally-vegan item, their Hodo Banh Mi is organic non-GMO tofu with Vegenaise, sweet chili sauce, house-made pickled daikon and carrots, cucumbers, jalapenos, and cilantro on panini-pressed ciabatta bread.

Doomie’s Home Cookin’

If you’re looking to go all out with your vegan sandwich choice, then Doomie’s is one of your best bets. Order their BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich. Between a bun is barbecue pulled pork, lettuce, and pickles. It comes with fries too!
