Hot off the Press: Fall 2014 Veg Guide to Los Angeles

Written by Jaya Bhumitra


Los Angeles is famous for its stars, beaches, and lucky for us, its status as a true mecca of vegan and vegetarian fare. And with COK’s Fall 2014 edition of the Vegetarian Guide to Los Angeles, it’s easier than ever to find the best animal-friendly options in the “City of Angels!”

Hot off the press, our handy, 20-page guide, which is distributed for free, is loaded with more than 200 veg-friendly listings — from restaurants and bakeries to hotels and food trucks.

Here are a few highlights you’ll find in our Guide to whet your appetite:

  • Three vegan chains: The Veggie Grill, Native Foods, and Real Food Daily (with a new space inside LAX) — all born in Southern California.
  • New kids on the block: NV-DA is an all-vegan organic and raw cafe and juice bar; Satdha serves vegan Thai specialties; the Cabana Restaurant at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills is sporting a new vegan menu by Spork Foods; and the all-vegan grocery Viva La Vegan has a new Santa Monica outpost.
  • Speaking of sweets: Breakaway Bakery offers an array of vegan goods from bagels to babka, and Fonuts spoils us with baked vegan donuts in fancy flavors like Coconut Passion Fruit and Banana Cinnamon.
  • Go international: Visit Shojin for gourmet vegan sushi. Happy Veggie dishes out delicious Thai curries. Indian cafe Samosa House makes a great – you guessed it, samosa. And Gracias Madre boasts the best Mexican food around.
  • Craving Soul Food?: Try Stuff I Eat, Doomie’s Home Cookin’, or Southern Fried Vegan.
