1. Kayak Kafé
Kayak Kafé is a casual spot with two locations around town. Vegans and vegetarians can get fresh, healthy meals that are packed with flavor. Whether you’re craving a salad, sandwich or even tacos, Kayak Kafé has healthy, plant-based options that you can feel good about eating. Some highlights from their menu are their Vegan Taco Bowls, Tiger Tofu tacos, and their Veggie Quesadilla available with vegan cheese.
2. Green Truck Pub
If you’re in the mood for a hearty burger and fries, make your way to the Starland District’s Green Truck Pub. Enjoy any one of their burgers with a veggie patty - black bean and corn salsa, avocado and jalapenos, sauteed mushrooms, onions and provolone and more.
3. Leopold's Ice Cream
Last but definitely not least on our list is Leopold’s Ice Cream. Leopold’s is a staple here in Savannah, but what you might not know is that they have a large variety of vegan options on their menu! From sorbets to floats to classic ice creams, you can find your sweet fix at Leopold’s as a vegan. The limeade float with coconut sorbet is highly recommended for a sweet and handmade dessert to stay refreshed in the Savannah heat.
4. Zunzi's Takeout & Catering
The cuisine at this express eatery is inspired by the owners’ eclectic cultures: South African, Swiss, Italian and Dutch. Zunzi’s has a vegetarian section on their menu and it includes veggie favorites like Falafel on Pita, the portabella mushroom sandwich and the veggie medley on top fresh mashed potatoes. You can also build your meal with Vegan Meatballs or grilled veggies for a family meal. Be sure to grab an ice-cold South African Tea with your meal – it’s unlike any tea you’ve ever had.
5. Brighter Day Natural Foods
Brighter Day Natural Foods is a must-stop for vegan and vegetarian travelers. At this Victorian District spot, you can stock up on plant-based snacks and essentials for your Savannah vacation rental or hotel room. Brighter Day Natural Foods also has a full deli, stocked with vegan and vegetarian sandwiches, salads, fresh-pressed juices and side dishes. Our favorite? The Avocado and Baked Cheese Sandwich.
6. Fox & Fig Cafe'
Nestled on the lovely Troup Square, this café is an excellent addition to Savannah’s vegan food scene. Fox & Fig Café serves up 100% plant-based breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee. Menu items include the Eggless Quiche, Raw Coconut Curry Noodle Salad and the Breakfast Hash with Cashew Hollandaise. Fox and Fig Café also has a full espresso bar equipped with plenty of non-dairy milk options, like homemade cashew hemp milk. I recommend having brunch here out on their patio when the weather is nice.
7. Sentient Bean
Rise and shine, vegans! The Sentient Bean on Forsyth Park has vegan and vegetarian breakfast classics like the Vegan Breakfast Burrito, which is made with tofu scramble, homemade vegan sausage, salsa, spinach and a secret spicy sauce. Be sure to pair your plant-based breakfast with a tasty non-dairy mocha or latte.
If you love potatoes, you need to go to Spudnik! It’s the only twice-baked potato restaurant in the world and has some amazingly delicious potato options. Spudnik is an excellent option if you’re looking for a spot for lunch that is quick, easy and on the go while still filling you up. Who doesn’t love a baked potato? Check out all the herb blend options for vegan twice-baked potato options.
Carlito’s Mexican Bar & Grill has a full vegetarian menu filled with Mexican comfort food favorites like fajitas, chimichangas, molcajete and enchiladas. The best part is all cheese can be replaced with non-dairy substitutes, so even vegans can get their cheesy fix.
If you’re looking for Asian cuisine, Boomy’s offers a large variety of dishes served with Tofu or veggies. Order any one of their noodle or rice dishes for a delicious and quick meal. They’ve also got a late-night menu for when you’re hanging out downtown and need a bite before you head home. Spicy food lovers will also enjoy this spot with their six levels of spice to choose from!
