Vegan / Vegan Friendly in Philadelphia / Bucks County

Just went vegan and looking for great places to eat out...

  1. Blue Sage in North Wales (MontCo, but close to parts of Bucks).
    Sping & Vine in New Hope.

    For Center City Philly:

    A bit closer to Bucks, in NoLibs/Fishtown there are lots of options. One Shot Coffee always has a lot of vegan goodies, Johnny Brenda's & Standard Tap (gastropubs) have good vegan options. More up that way I'm sure.

      Blue Sage is in Southhampton, just off of Street Road. That is Bucks County.

      Another great place is Sprig and Vine in New Hope.

      Cafe Galleria in Lambertville just across the river also has a good selection of vegan items.

    2. It isn't Bucks County, but there are several places between 46th and 50th on Baltimore Ave in West Philly, including a coffee shop on 50th and Baltimore, a restaurant on 47th and Baltimore, and a deli on 46th, right off Baltimore. Don't have the names right now, but will not them next time I walk by.

        Blue Sage is located in Southampton, east of County Line Rd. Bucks extends down to Bristol, including Upper and Lower Southampton.

          Bucks extends south to Bensalem, and Andalusia. Blue sage is right off Street Road.

          Horizons in Philly (1 block south of South on 7th Street) is a great vegan restaurant -- we're omnivores and we think it is a great restaurant -- maybe for special occasions pricewise but really good!

          1. re: Beulah

            Beaulah is spot on Horizons is a great restaurant.. one of the best vegan restaurants in the nation. You cannot go wrong there.

            ditto.. many of philly's gastropubs have vegan options - in addition to the Royal Tavern, the new Khyber Pass Pub (same owners) has vegan sandwiches and sides, and the South Philly Tap Room has several vegetarian (not sure about vegan) options. the POPE has seitan as a meat option on a few things, but overall their food is not as good.

            10 Palmer Sq E, Princeton, NJ 08542

              The Vegan hoagie at South Philly Tap Room is really good. They always have at least one seasonal vegetable dish on special, and their salads are good and can be made vegan.

              Cantina (two locations), again by the owners of Royal/Khyber, has good vegan options and all of their places carry vegan desserts.

          3. We have really enjoyed our visits to Spring and Vine. As it has gotten popular, reservations are a must on weekends. There have been a few times when we felt as if the kitchen hasn't handled the crowds so well: a few inordinate waits between starters and mains. But the quality of the food is excellent. And, it is BYO.

              I just saw sprig & vine's menu on New Hope's restaurant week ad. It looks really good!
