Vegan Guide to Philadelphia

Vegan Guide to Philadelphia

Philly has probably the best vegan food of any city we’ve ever been to. It was ahead of the game too, when we first visited Philadelphia together in 2016 they had amazing vegan options, even before the plant based movement is as popular as it is now. We tell everyone that Philly is vegan mecca, because it’s the truth! There are vegan options at nearly every single restaurant, bar, food market, & hole in the wall. You can literally go into any place in Philly and find something vegan yet affordable and that’s what makes it so amazing.

Blackbird Pizzeria


Location: 614 N 2nd St.
Our recommendations:

  • Seitan Cheesesteak - the best vegan cheesesteak in all of Philly!

  • Spicy BBQ Pizza - we are still dreaming about the root beer bbq sauce.



Locations: Center City, West Philly, Whole Foods by the Philadelphia Museum of Art
Our recommendations:

  • Turkish Coffee Tehina Shake - the most amazing vegan milkshake we have ever had!

  • Falafel Sandwich - go for the spicy tehina inside for that extra kick!

Luhv Vegan Deli


Location: Reading Terminal Market
Our recommendations:

  • Reuben Sandwich - not sure why someone would need a normal reuben after tasting this!



Locations: Center City, Rittenhouse Square, Spruce Street Harbor Park, Spruce Hill
Our recommendations:

  • Crispy HipCity Ranch - the most amazing vegan fast food burger

  • Philly Steak - made with mushroom instead of seitan, but still equally as delicious

Chapterhouse Cafe


Location: 620 South 9th Street
Our recommendations:

  • Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese - not as good as a New York bagel but it gets the job done.

  • Iced Mocha Latte with Non-Dairy Milk - perfect for chilling at the cafe or to take on the go.

Dottie’s Donuts


Locations: 509 South 6th Street, 4529 Springfield Ave.
Our recommendations:

  • Thai Tea Donut - if you’ve been missing Thai iced tea as a vegan, say no more! This donut tastes just as good.

  • Matcha Creme Donut - a Boston creme donut with a matcha twist!
