11 Best Vegan Restaurants In Nashville
Nashville is a city of dreams, not only because of music or Oprah Winfrey but also because of hundreds of vegan restaurants.
As veganism is growing, vegan restaurants have become commonplace. That means if you are out, you will have many options to try.
And to make it easy for you, we have created a list of 11 best vegan restaurants in Nashville.
1. THE SOUTHERN V
Starting the list with the best vegan food in Nashville with a southern twist. All your comfy foods like burgers, mac n cheese, hot and fried chicken, greens, waffles, and biscuits.
We have also heard that the mango tea served in Southern V is by far the best. So, if you don’t want to stick to the regular plan of grabbing an espresso or a brew, then order a mango tea.
Being one of the popular bistros in Nashville, Graze is known for its quality vegan food and drinks.
Whether you order Nacho Supreme in your starters or a Roasted Veggie Burrito as your main course, you will enjoy every bite of it.
The blueberry pancakes are gluten-free and can go with anything warm, like a drip coffee. Give it a try. There are some exclusive cocktail options (unless you are already full).
People love AVO, and you know why? Not because of its appealing gluten-free food options but because it serves food with care and generosity. The portions are decent, and better are the gluten-free crab cakes.
In the main dish section, you can have Cali Burger, Summer Pasta with pistachio walnut pesto, or Manicoti having lemon herb almond ricotta.
Another reason to name it one of the best vegan restaurants in Nashville– is Weekend Brunch, exclusive Desserts and a range of Beverages.
4. SUNFLOWER BAKEHOUSE
Now this might come as a surprise, but this bakery is 100% free from gluten. A vegan, gluten-free bakery is precious, so make sure not to miss the chance when you are in the city.
Not just this, Sunflower Bakehouse serves everything– from cupcakes and pastries to burgers and sandwiches. With so many extensive options, Sunflower Bakehouse is one of the best vegan restaurants in Nashville.
5. THE WILD COW
Whether it is a private party or catering service, The Wild Cow honors everything. And that is one of the many reasons to include it among the best vegan restaurants in Nashville.
It serves gluten-free buffalo tempeh strips, nachos, gyro pita sandwiches, french quarter dips, a variety of salads, tacos, and wraps. All their entree bowls have no gluten unless you insist on some seitan.
And in case you have the company of a kid, their kid’s menu is worth the hype.
6. SUCCULENT VEGAN TACOS
Succulent Vegan Tacos is Nashville’s first vegan taco restaurant(taqueria). The Al Pastor is made up of pastor seitan, fresh pineapple, onion, and cilantro (I know you are already mouth-watering).
The other 3 vegan tacos are Tinga, made up of carrots, black beans, and cilantro. Papas are made up of roasted tomatillo salsa, potatoes, and kale. Asada consists of soy asada, onion, and cilantro.
And after all this, there are some side dishes you can try. If you still need something to lessen your stress, then try some Mexican Sodas.
7. THE BE-HIVE
With an interesting back story, The Be-hive is considered one of the popular vegan restaurants in Nashville. From Subs to Fried Vegan Chicken, from Waffles Fries to Crunch Wraps, from greens to shakes, TheBe-hive has left no stone unturned.
And maybe if you happen to visit the place, ask about their exclusive retail products (you won’t be disappointed by the stuff you get to see there).
8. SUNFLOWER CAFE
If you have any allergies (soy, gluten, or oil), you don’t need to skip anything. Why? Because Sunflower Cafe has tons of options (not literally).
Order anything you want because all the dishes are your “comfy foods.” You have wraps, salads, burgers, sandwiches, tacos and nachos, combo bowls, and several allergen-free options.
After you are stuffed, maybe wrap it up with some Chocolate Mousse or Berries and Cream?
9. WOODLANDS INDIAN VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT
Indian Food is divine– the spices and flavors just explode. And that’s why we have included Woodlands Indian in our list. So what is on the menu for today?
You have the chef’s special Coconut Curry, Hot and Sour Soup made up of veggies, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and the Malai Kofta. These three dishes are the three most popular dishes in the restaurant.
As long as you pair the dishes with a garlic naan and a side dish of your choice, you are already on the way to becoming a convert (this time, I am not kidding).
10. COPPER BRANCH
Before you know what they offer, let me tell you something– they serve food from 8 am to 9 pm, seven days a week. Their power bowls are really powerful.
You get to choose a base (Brown Rice, Mixed Lettuce, Quinoa, Konjac Noodles) and protein of your choice (Organic Tempeh, Shiitake Teriyaki, Carrot Keftedes, Organic Tofu Cubes).
You need a huge appetite to finish one power bowl because their portions are way more than generous.
Apart from power bowls, Copper Branch serves combo burgers and sandwiches, flatbreads, snacks, soups, bakery goodies, and smoothies.
11. GUERRILLA BIZKITS
Now bizkits might not sound similar(not the band), but what does taste have to do anything with sound? However, flavors are important and that’s why the restaurant has categorized everything according to it.
Maybe the straight-edge Bizkit which is buttery, fluffy, flaky, and salty? Salty? Yes. Also, the loaded Red Lobster Bizkits. It’s cheesy and has garlic in it, and that’s why it tastes like golden clouds, as the restaurant claims.
