Post Best Vegetarian Restaurants In Austin
Best Vegetarian Restaurants In Austin
by: Joe Cline

Although Texas might be famous for its cattle-ranches, insiders know that some of the best food in Austin is vegetarian. Vegetarians have their choice of restaurant types in Austin. Relax at a four star vegan bistro, or grab a quick bite in a vegetarian cafe. Your options are nearly limitless.

For a quick lunch, Austin residents love Leaf, a restaurant specializing in gourmet salads. Although some of Leaf's offerings do contain meat, they offer plenty of vegetarian options such as the Margherita on the Works, which contains fresh greens, mozzarella, basil, cherry tomatoes, black olives, and pine nuts served with a honey-tangerine dressing. If you plan to dine at Leaf frequently, join the Loyal Leafers club. After you purchase five salads, you will receive a free special treat. Leaf is only open for lunch, but Austin has plenty of vegetarian restaurants that are open for dinner.

For breakfast, a snack, or just a cup of coffee, Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse & Café is a relaxed all-vegetarian restaurant. Most of the items on the menu are also vegan. Locals love the quirky, arty ambiance, and this restaurant is a favorite destination for those on a first date. This coffeehouse encourages lingering, and you will find a variety of books and board games to amuse yourself with while you dine. Although this is a coffee house, they have plenty of filling meal options available. The Soul Food Plate and Cosmic Sloppy Joes are perennial favorites.

If you are in the mood for an ethnic dining experience, check out Swad Indian Vegetarian Restaurant?. Diners rave about the taste and quality of the food. Additionally, Aster's Ethiopian offers many vegan and vegetarian meals, and the Ethiopian cuisine can be a nice change of pace.

For vegans, Austin has restaurants that will cater to your dietary requirements. Vegan diners should check out Bodhi Eco Café, which offers mostly vegan entrees. The chef takes flavor very seriously, and uses mostly local ingredients in order to produce the most delicious meals possible. Bodhi Eco Café is also perfect for the budget conscious diner, as most of their offerings are under ten dollars. Casa de Luz is another vegan restaurant, with a focus on holistic macrobiotic dining. All of the food served in Casa de Luz is organic and locally grown. Individuals who only eat raw foods should stop into DaVine Foods, which offers a wide variety of raw dishes. They also offer many gluten-free entrees.

If you are staying close to the University of Texas, the closest vegetarian restaurant is Veggie Heaven, which serves Chinese food. They also offer brown rice, which is a rarity even in most vegetarian restaurants. Delivery and take out are available, making this the perfect vegetarian option when you feel like staying at home and being a couch potato.

Vegetarians in Austin have more than enough restaurant options. There is so much variety available that even the most refined palate will never get bored. Even if you are a die-hard meat lover, take a chance and try one of Austin's exceptional vegetarian restaurants. Your taste buds will thank you.
