13 Must-Try Vegan and Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Sacramento

Sacramento may be the sometimes forgotten capital of California (no, it’s not Los Angeles), but the lively city—with history-making highlights dated back to the Gold Rush era—has a lot more to offer than it’s storied past.

So, it’s no wonder Sacramento would also be on the brink of becoming America’s next vegan hot spot. We’re rounding up some of the best vegan and vegan-friendly spots Sacramento has to offer.
