Best Restaurants for Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten-Free Food

Read next


Dining out when a member of the fam is on a vegan diet or has food allergies no longer has to be a tall order! We’ve taken the guesswork out of where to go for the best vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free food around town. The following 12 restaurants offer clearly notated delicious menu options to help you order up healthy food that meets your dietary needs. We’ve found everything from vegan, gluten-free Thai food, vegan carne asada and vegan donuts to gluten-free pot pies and a plant based drive-thru restaurant!


Flaky gluten-free pot pies are no longer too good to be true. 2Good2B Cafe in Encinitas serves up their best selling chicken pot pie with two sides. This is gluten-free fare at its best: flaky crust through and through (How do they do that?) filled with generous amounts of shredded chicken, peas, carrots and mushrooms in a creamy sauce. We love their bread too! All items at 2Good2B are made gluten-free. No cross-contamination here! Nothing on the menu contains corn or soy either, so this is a haven for those with allergies. They also boast vegan and dairy free items. Order at the counter and enjoy eating without reservation in the bright, modern dining area with friendly staff. Their bakery counter is a must with apple and mixed berry pies brimming with fruit and tons of cupcake choices: lemon, raspberry coconut, strawberry with divine icing. Don't miss their new store location opening June 1, 2017 in Rancho Bernardo.
