        Up in West Palm, I have heard a lot of good things about Darbster in the past year or so. I have not been yet however.

        But that may change.

        New, second location coming to Boca Raton soon.

        "Our goal is to provide delicious, natural, organic and vegetarian friendly cuisine that will satisfy all tastes. Darbster is a 100% vegan restaurant."

        Darbster - Boca Raton
        6299 N Federal Highway

        I may have to try it out - in between my tireless search for the area's finest pork belly.

          This second location is now OPEN.

          "Darbster Boca is open. At 6299 N Federal Hwy, Boca Raton. Hours to start are W-Sun from 5 until 10 (9pm on Sunday)."

          I am most definitely a carnivore but there looks like some stuff here I def would like to try...

          Another great place is Lemoni Cafe in the Buena Vista area just north of Mid Town... great veggie options!

            I've read there's a lot of vegetarian options at Lost and Found Saloon but never been there. Can anyone who has please comment and also let me know if it's appropriate at dinner time for kids, age 9 & 12.

              Here's a new article from Jan Norrs on increasing veg options for SoFla diners - mostly discusses Broward and Palm Beach restos

                I just had the most amazing live/raw Avocado-Cilantro Soup @T.H.R.I.V.E. in South Beach. No need to pretend how good it was, that's why I ordered a second helping. Good Food doesn't have to be bad for you...just saying'.

                  I also heard someone mention La Vie En Raw in Coral Gables recently.

                    You can go to the market in the Grove on Saturdays and eat vegan food while pretending that it is good.

                      I've heard good things about Jugos Naturales in Sweetwater. Some vegan friends of mine rave about it, and there are lots of positive reviews here: http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=8244

                      Those same friends also really like the Mac'n food truck: http://www.macnfoodtruck.com

                        I've heard good things about Mi Vida Cafe on Biscayne around 72nd but haven't tried it.

                          I only had a juice at Mi Vida but the food smelled divine...must try it! I think Thrive may have closed? I've been by a few times only to find the gate locked...anybody know something?

                            Mi Vida is excellent. Last time I visited, I tried the Vegan Mushroom Seitan Sloppy Joe. Definitely worth it.
