Check out this guide of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the destination where you'll find plenty of creative veggie-based dishes to try that are both healthy and delicious.

1 Love Food Central

From the Buffalo Tempeh Sandwich made with seared tempeh tossed in buffalo sauce, to The Love Burger featuring a homemade beet and black bean burger, Love Food Central is not messing around with their modern offerings. You'll be too busy enjoying your meal to notice that it's vegan and gluten-free! They specialize in desserts, so be sure to save room for something sweet. Don't miss the delicious cashew coconut based soft serve, with new flavors debuting each week (you can't go wrong with the Sunflower Butter).

2 Old Earth Pure Organic Food

This family-owned gluten free and raw vegan restaurant prides itself on pure, minimally processed, whole food products. Some favorites include the dairy free nut mylk shakes with flavors like Carrot Cake, Blueberry Muffin and Snickerdoodle, and the Kraut Flatbread or Kraut Roll made with old fashioned sauerkraut aged in a ceramic crock. It’s not just the food that’s amazing, but the dedicated owners that make everything in house!

3 Rawk Star Cafe

Touting an entirely plant-based menu, Rawk Star Café is known for its inventive dishes that use raw, organic and gluten-free products -- crafting everything from smoothies, wraps, salads and “rawghetti” zucchini-based pasta. You won’t find anything cooked, only some items heated with dehydrators up to 110 degrees. The brother-sister team established the concept eight years ago in Oldsmar, and recently opened a second location in downtown St. Pete featuring an alcohol program with all organic beer and wine.

The chefs at The Cider Press Café on Central Ave in St. Pete are changing people’s misperceptions that raw, vegan or vegetarian food is bland and cold.

Try the Snake in the Grass burger, BBQ platter prepared with jackfruit, and don’t forget the vegan mac and cheese. A return trip will be necessary with so many options to choose from!
