When I found out I’d be in Huntsville for the first time after going vegan, my brain went to where it always goes — food. What will I eat? Is there vegan food easily accessible there? Will I starve because do they even know what vegan food is in Huntsville? I reached out to several of my friends who have either lived in or worked in Huntsville and found out there were several chain restaurants that have vegan options and then upon further research, I found some more Huntsville vegan options.
In fact, I found so many vegan options in Huntsville that I didn’t even have time to visit them all on that first visit. And, even after a couple of visits, I still have more to visit.
Huntsville Vegan Options
While Huntsville only has one completely vegan option, there are plenty of other fantastic choices.

Huntsville Vegetarian Restaurants
For vegetarian-only spots, you can head to one of these two spots!
Chef Will’s at The Palate
TYPE OF CUISINE: CARIBBEAN, SOUL FOOD
NEIGHBORHOOD: LOWE MILL
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: UNSURE
I feel like Chef Will’s is one of those gems that is so special and everyone takes it for granted.
You may not even know this place exists – located on the backside of the Lowe Mill parking lot – it’s not something you’re just going to stumble across unless you’re purposely googling Huntsville vegan options, a local tells you about it or you happen to be walking outside on the backside of Lowe Mill.
Lauren got the southern plate which looked absolutely amazing and I just had him make me whatever he wanted – it was some kind of portobello rice avocado something or another. All I can say is it was delicious.
When entering Lowe Mill parking lot, just keep driving along the left side of the building, make a right at the corner of the building and follow along until you see his food truck on the right-hand side.
Call beforehand – his hours on Facebook, Google and in-person all seem different.
I Love Juice Bar
TYPE OF CUISINE: HEALTHY, JUICES
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: YES, CLEARLY MARKED
Juice and smoothie franchise. Offers also acai, soup, and a small fridge with prepared vegan foods.
All vegan except for bee products.
Huntsville Vegan Friendly Options
Mason Dixon Bakery + Bistro
TYPE OF CUISINE: COMFORT FOODS, BAKED GOODS
GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS: EVERYTHING!
The first time we visited Mason Dixon was just for coffee and some cupcakes because we had already eaten lunch. We each got one to go and one to eat there.
They were so good!
We were pleasantly surprised that they had a full menu that had an entire vegan section on it so the next day, we headed back for lunch.
I got the mushroom melt which had greens, portobello mushrooms, tomato, Daiya cheese, beet pesto, and vegan bacon. I also had the Thai cauliflower soup which was oh so good too.
I’ve since been back for brunch and have had the biscuits and gravy and avocado toast. The biscuits and gravy were delicious, but the avocado toast wasn’t the best avo toast I’ve had.
