Vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the Carlsbad area?

Are there any decent vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the Carlsbad area? I'll be there for a few days next week and I have never been before. I'll have a car and I don't mind driving to a restaurant that's worth the travel. Thanks in advance!

  1. Pizza Port in Carlsbad Village has vegetarian options. Doubtful on the vegan front, however.

    1. You should try the Hill Street Coffee House on the Coast Hwy in Oceanside:

      524 S Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA
      (760) 966-0985

      They've got plenty of options for vegans and meat-eaters, too.

      1. I've never been to either myself, but my veggie friends patronize both Ki's in Cardiff:

        and Roxy in Encinitas:

        They also love the Hill Street Coffee House mentioned above.

        1. re: soulshine

          Ki's is pretty good. Casual, decent food. They have ocean views from the 2nd story. Food is better for the money than The Beach House across the street.

        2. If you drive inland to Escondido, there is also the Stone Brewing Bistro. They serve vegetarian and vegan items. Also, in San Marcos (between Escondido and Carlsbad) there's an Indian place called India Princess. It's pretty good, and also has veggie/vegan options.

          1. Thanks for your input, everyone! I am so excited to try your suggestions. I leave on Sunday, so please let me know if you think of anything else in the meantime. N
