Healthy or veg food in Columbia, MO?

  • 6

Greetings everyone,

I'm traveling to meet a friend in Columbia, MO this weekend.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a vegetarian place or a place that serves relatively healthy food. We'll be going for dinner. It doesn't need to have a lot of ambience, but it shouldn't be totally run down either.

I've heard the Main Squeeze is good. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks a million!

  1. You could try the Cherry Street Artisan. I happen to work near by and wander over once-in-awhile for lunch. It is good, reliable food although not gourmet fare. Very casual, order at the counter type place and then they bring the food to your table. It is in the next block over from the Main Squeeze which I've never been in.

    1. Main squeeze is a "natural foods cafe" on ninth street in columbia, i was there once and I thought it was very good,they have a changing daily special I believe. They have a website as well: http://www.main-squeeze.com/
      The International Cafe on Hitt Street does middle-eastern/meditteranean as well with lots of veg. choices.
      Good luck, enjoy Columbia!

        1. Main Squeeze for sure, but quite a few places downtown strive to have some veggie choices. Even Shakespeares does a good veggie pie with a choice of whole wheat crust.

          Any of the more upscale places have many choices, so Tellers, Strada Nova, Sycamore will all have some options. Bangkok Gardens has some veggie thai choices. Sub Shop, for a budget meal does a decent veggie sub as well. You might also want to check out Village Wine on Broadway near tenth - I can't remember, but I'm laying odds that they have veggie choices.
