Try These 10 Vegan and Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Detroit

Looking for a bite to eat in Detroit? We’ve got you covered!

When you think of the Midwest, vegan food is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But there are so many amazing vegan options—especially in Detroit! From vegan restaurants and soft serve shops to establishments that serve an abundance of vegan options, the Motor City has it all. Try these 10 vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in Detroit.

Detroit Vegan Soul

North Rosedale Park

Detroit Vegan Soul is one of the best vegan restaurants in town! The menu features dishes inspired by co-founder Erika Boyd’s family recipes like Catfish Tofu, Seitan Pepper Steak, Mac ‘n’ Cheese, and Oyster Mushroom Po’ Boys. We’re obsessed!

Unburger Grill

Dearborn

Burgers and fries are always the move—especially when they’re from Unburger Grill! Choose your burger style (basic, mushroom Swiss, Southwest, mac, sweet BBQ, or Jamaican), patty (black bean, spicy chickpea, Caribbean, or ultimate), and bun (whole grain, gluten-free, or bun-free), and get ready for a satisfying meal.

Cold Truth Soft Serve

No matter how cold it gets, you can’t say no to vegan soft serve! This dessert shop swirls scratch-made vegan soft serve in cups and gluten-free waffle cones for enthusiastic customers. The irresistible flavors range from Chocolate and Chicory Coffee to Lemon Curd and Lavender.

Spacecat V-stro

Downtown Ferndale

Vegan-Friendly

If you can’t tell by its name, Spacecat V-stro’s vibes are unmatched. Scratch-made vegetarian and vegan comfort food in the trendy Ferndale neighborhood? Yes, please! While the menu is vegetarian, almost everything can be made vegan. The Cheeseburger Burrito, Hot Mess Sandwich, and Red Dwarf Burger are a few fan favorites.

Seva

Midtown

Vegan-Friendly

This vegetarian restaurant got its start in Ann Arbor back in 1973. In 2011, Seva opened a location in Midtown Detroit. With an epic lineup of vegan cocktails, wines, apps, entrees, and kids’ meals, Seva is where it’s at! Everything on the menu is clearly marked with instructions on how to veganize the non-vegan dishes. And the vegan spinach artichoke dip is to die for!

Grandma Bob’s Pizza

Corktown

What’s a food article about Detroit without a mention of the iconic deep-dish pizza? With plant-based toppings such as mozzarella, pepperoni, chorizo, and even pickles, Grandma Bob’s Pizza is the ultimate destination for vegan Detroit-style pizza. Don’t forget to order a side of vegan ranch!

Going out with friends? Bobcat Bonnie’s is the perfect place for vegans and non-vegans to have a good meal and a good time. The vegan options are much more than just a dressing-less salad and side of bread. We’re talking about plant-based breakfast skillets, wings, mushroom melts, carrot cake, and drinks galore!

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
