Vegan Pop-Ups in Highland Park
Friday nights in Highland Park are a walk through vegan wonderland, complete with ice cream slides, horchata rivers, and quesadilla mountains. Okay, that doesn’t entirely make sense, but you get the idea—York St is a site to behold for any plant-based foodie.

Hinterhof’s all Vegan German Brunch
Highland Park (Saturday & Sunday)
Just a couple months after opening, Hinterhof is meshing German and American cuisines into one, cohesive eye-popping brunch menu. Some standout items include their Pretzel Bread French Toast and Schnitzel and Waffles, which is akin to a German take on chicken and waffles. If you’re ready for a lavish brunch you’ll never forget, Hinterhof is your weekend destination.
Sunday, May 26
Some of LA’s most rave-worthy pop-ups join Old Stump Brewery for a day of delectable eats and an Iron Chef-like competition, where the vendors face off head-to-head for the best dish. Our very own Joel Alatorre will be one of several judges!
Every vegan’s favorite weekly affair bursts into the summer with extended hours and just as many must-try noms.
