Believe it or not, the vegan Nashville scene is something to talk about. When I decided to make the transition to veganism, I was pleasantly surprised by this news.  As many know, Nashville is rapidly growing.  Many, many people are moving here every day and more restaurants are popping up all the time.  Lucky for us vegans (and even non-vegans!), more vegan restaurants in Nashville keep popping up along with vegan-friendly restaurants so being vegan in Nashville is super easy.  We have everything from vegan donuts to vegan hot “chicken” and just about everything in between.

Avo

TYPE OF CUISINE: AMERICAN, KOSHER
COST: $$
NEIGHBORHOOD: MIDTOWN – WEST END
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED

VEGAN RESTAURANTS in NASHVILLE

I’ve been to Avo a few times now.  They used to be a raw only restaurant but they now offer cooked food as well. After some changes in menu and ownership, I feel it is one of the best vegan options in the city again! When I went the first time, we got the ‘cheese’ plate and pad thai.  I’ve also had the walnut lentil cheeseburger and strawberry Caprese. The dishes were beautifully plated and very delicious!  Avo also has housemade draft kombucha as well as a large selection of organic, biodynamic, gluten-free and/or additive-free bar offerings.

Graze

TYPE OF CUISINE: AMERICAN, COMFORT FOOD
COST: $$
Neighborhood: EAST NASHVILLE
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED

Graze is one of my favorite all-vegan restaurants!  It’s only a year old but it has certainly impressed us all in that short year!  They have an absolutely delicious menu with brunch on the weekends and dinner every day but Monday.  I’ve had their breakfast burrito, hot tempeh biscuit, their biscuits and jam (!), salad (their salads are beautiful) and a few specials which aren’t on their regular menu.  Everything was fantastic.  They also have great bar options.  I can not recommend Graze enough!

The Southern V

TYPE OF CUISINE: AMERICAN, COMFORT FOOD, SOUTHERN
COST: $$
NEIGHBORHOOD: NORTH NASHVILLE
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED

vegan restaurants in nashville

The Southern V is…it’s just amazing.  The Southern V started out just in their home after this adorable family went vegan due to many food allergies.  They started with custom orders that they would deliver and farmer’s markets – mostly just bakery items.  But, then they went and opened a to-go only location that is open only on the weekend.  The line is usually always decent and they stop selling when the food runs out and it does, run out.  Here are my directions for visiting.  Order one of everything.  Your mind will tell you that you can’t eat it all but you can.  I promise.

In all seriousness, this is where you get your hot chicken fix.  Also, get all the donuts.  And, all the potato casserole.  And, that’s just breakfast!

I finally just had dinner at Vegfest and I can now officially say it’s amazing as well!  Pictured is the jackfruit sliders and mac n cheese.  I was never a HUGE BBQ fan but if I was and that was something I missed from my pre-vegan days, this would definitely hit the spot.  The mac n cheese is definitely one of the best I’ve had.

Speaking of donuts.

As far as I know, Vegan Vee is the only place like it in Nashville.  They are entirely vegan and entirely gluten-free. They are also peanut-free facility, predominately organic and offer soy-free and nut-free items daily.  They are literally everyone’s best friend.  It’s a take-out style bakery and it’s heaven.

Vege-licious Cafe

TYPE OF CUISINE: AMERICAN, COMFORT FOOD
COST: $$
NEIGHBORHOOD: MIDTOWN
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED

Vege-Licious is Nashville’s newest all-vegan spot. It’s actually located in The Southern V’s old location off of Fisk Street. They opened in late June 2018 and from what I’ve seen, it’s been a huge success. All of my vegan friends love their food – as they should – but also make note of how wonderful the owners are and the welcoming atmosphere. I tried the lasagna, the vegan soul food plate, and the Philly cheesesteak. My favorite was the Philly followed closely by the soul food plate. I’m fairly picky about barbeque and mac n cheese and I loved both of these!

Poppie Nashville

***Update – I’m not sure if she’s still accepting orders at this time.***

I’ve dreamt of vegan hot pockets for the last two years and finally…they’ve arrived! I’m so excited to see this business expand because they’re seriously delicious! I had the egg & cheese, bacon egg & cheese, and southwest flavors! All were fantastic but I was partial to the egg & cheese. I just realized all the other flavors she offers though and HELLO pepperoni and hot chicken flavors. I’m coming for you!


Koko’s Ice Cream

TYPE OF CUISINE: SWEETS, DESSERT, ICE CREAM
COST: $
NEIGHBORHOOD: MIDTOWN AND COLUMBIA
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES

Koko’s is a brand new vegan ice cream in Nashville!  This is some of the best ice cream I’ve had – it’s not heavy at all and you almost feel like you’re eating something healthy – which can be dangerous!  They’re coconut based but don’t taste really coconut-y as some do.  I highly recommend the Moon Dust, Golden Milk, Cookies n Creme and Elderflower flavors!

The Wild Cow

TYPE OF CUISINE: AMERICAN, COMFORT FOOD
COST: $$
NEIGHBORHOOD: EAST NASHVILLE
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED

The Wild Cow, under my impression, is one of the oldest vegan restaurants in Nashville and I can see why it’s still one of the most popular.  It is also owned by the same owners as Graze and is literally around the corner.  So maybe wear your stretchy pants and go to both??  The Wild Cow is labeled as a vegetarian restaurant because they offer dairy cheese but otherwise, it’s completely vegan.  I’ve had the nachos and the Philly sandwich.  Both are outstanding.  They also donate 2.5% of their sales every Thursday to a charity – the charity changes every month.

Sunflower Cafe is completely vegan except for one of their breads and they do offer dairy cheese.  They are known for their gourmet veggie burgers and barbeque but I can’t get enough of their portobello wrap and buffalo wrap.  They have endless side items that are bought a la carte. I also highly suggest this cookie dough parfait.

Here it is, guys.  Probably my favorite restaurant ever.  Go during lunch.  The buffet is like 10 dollars and is 95% vegan.  Everything is CLEARLY marked.  I could eat here every day.  There is nothing else to say here.  Okay, maybe a little…the pakora and haika noodles (those red noodles) are probably my favorite but I’ve literally never eaten something here that I didn’t like.  If you are vegan (even if you’re not), don’t skip this.

The Smiling Elephant is a wonderful, wonderful Thai restaurant.  Not only are they very well aware what vegan is but it is the MOST authentic Thai food I’ve had since Thailand.  That’s saying a lot.  Plus, I love the atmosphere here!  A lot of their curries are okay to eat too because they make them without dairy – just ask!  And, they have mango sticky rice.

It’s a counter-service type spot with nachos, burritos, tacos and burrito bowls. The Beyond Meat is cooked with potatoes and onions which I thought was a nice touch! Definitely, my choice when it comes to this type of food and a great new option in the Green Hills area.
