MONTCO'S BEST VEGETARIAN & VEGAN

The Best Meat-Free Restaurants and Dishes

Vegetarian options in Montgomery County will make meat-lovers turn green with envy. With extensive options for both restaurants and dishes, veggie loves can indulge to their (artichoke) heart's content.

Saffron Indian Kitchen

SAFFRON INDIAN KITCHEN

Ambler, Bala Cynwyd, Wayne

Saffron's three locations (including their newest at 522 W. Lancaster Ave in Wayne) offer vegetarians an Indian-inspired feast. Start with the onion bhajia (marinated vegetables deep-fried in a chickpea batter) and move on to one of their vegetarian entrees like bhindi do piaza (spiced okra with diced onions and tomatoes) or navratan korma (mixed veggies in cashew cream sauce).

VGË CAFÉ

VGË CAFÉ

845 Lancaster Ave
Bryn Mawr, PA 19010

Offering pure vegetarian fare, promised to be both 100-percent vegan and kosher, Vgë Café in Bryn Mawr is a go-to for health-conscious herbivores. Avoiding saturated fats, refined sugars and artificial ingredients without skimping on flavor is no easy task, but Vgë has mastered the challenge. As an added bonus, vegan soft-serve is available for those looking to end their meal with a sweet treat. 

FLORA RESTAURANT

FLORA RESTAURANT

Flora Restaurant in Jenkintown, another contender on OpenTable's list of top vegetarian restaurants, is a small BYOB serving gourmet veggie-centric plates in a price-fixe three- or four-course menu. Dessert-lovers are recommended to go for the four-course option, as it includes confection choices like pumpkin pie with chocolate coffee whipped cream and toasted pumpkin seed brittle. 

iCREATE CAFE

Pottstown locals are well aware of the iCreate Café, not only from its delectable vegan choices but also from its owner, Ash, who treats each new customer as if he'd known them for years. Stop by for comforting Middle Eastern-inspired eats like baba ghanoush and falafel.

Vegan Chili from the Allways Cafe

VEGETARIAN MENU OPTIONS

BRYN & DANE'S

BRYN & DANE'S

400 Privet Rd
Horsham, PA 19044
115 Plymouth Rd, Suite #1
Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462

Healthy fast food sounds like an oxymoron, but that's exactly what micro-chain Bryn & Dane's offers. Swap in a black bean burger, vegan patty or avocado to create a vegetarian meal to go at breakfast, lunch or dinner. We love the East Asian bistro salad with spring greens, mandarin oranges, almonds, quinoa, asian noodles and Bryn & Dane's own sesame dressing.
