Charlotte is a beautiful city with lots of lovely parks, and wonderful activities for people of all ages. Whether you want to take a hike through nature, ride your bike, or play different sports, Charlotte has a lot to offer. Plus when it comes to finding vegan friendly restaurants, long gone are the days when they were hard to find.

Vegan friendly Restaurants in Charlotte, NC

There are now many wonderful vegan friendly restaurants in Charlotte! Let's take a look at some of them.

Chopt Creative Salad Company

Popular on the east coast and expanding... at Chopt you will be able to create many yummy healthy meals, gluten free and vegan as well. Their salads are delicious and so are their salad sandwiches.

There is a huge selection of ingredients to choose from, plus their toppings are unmatched. And their custom, gluten-free dressings are the best. For sure, check them out and give their custom creative salad a try.

 

Umai Sushi & Asian Bistro
8418 Park Rd, Charlotte, NC 28210
Phone: (704) 315-6989

At Umai Sushi I could had enjoyed their all-you-can-eat lunch special... but being a vegan I just ordered some delicious avocado sushi, edadame for protein, and a warm miso soup.

Then grabbed some vegan ice cream at:

La Michoacana (Ice Cream)
6301 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28213
Phone: (704) 503-9493

 


Heirloom Restaurant
8470 Bellhaven Blvd.
Charlotte, NC 28216
Phone: (704) 595-7710

http://www.heirloomrestaurantnc.com

Have you ever tried a 12 course tasting menu inspired by the world’s leading kitchens? Get ready to discover Heirloom, a beautiful fine dining restaurant where you can order all vegan as well. Just let the chef know of your diet preferences in advance.

Utilizing local ingredients, the chef will prepare unique and creative meals that will feed your body and soul. As a sneak peek here is a look at the front page of the menu I received, which changes daily.

The chef works year-round to preserve ingredients in their purest form, and thus offering highly nutritious dishes. You will see the bright flavor of blueberries in December, tomato soup in February, okra seed couscous in January, and carrots in August.

Loved the warm beet soup and the vegan strawberry chocolate cake.

 

Whole Foods Market
6610 Fairview Rd, Charlotte, NC 28210
Phone: (980) 213-2400

I must say this is one of the best Whole Foods Market I've been to, ever. The food bar had many vegan options, plus you will see a variety of vegan pizzas and vegan sandwiches. There is also vegan cornbread, which I tried and loved it. And for dessert, you can grab some chocolate or chocolate coffee vegan cake for about $2 dollars.

After going there a few times I noticed the food bar offers consistent options, and they are delicious. The vegan soups are great as well!

 

Let's drive to Raleigh for Brunch

After a great time in Charlotte, I drove 2h 30min to Raleigh to check out this vegan restaurant and loved it!

It was Saturday when they offer only the brunch menu. Here is what I tried...

Funday Quiche: Choose vegan or vegetarian; seasonal vegetables baked in vegan tofu or an egg custard inside a homemade crust. Served with root vegetable hash and fruit. (Vegan, opt Gluten Free)

Fried "Chicken" and Waffle: Marinated, herb seasoned, dredged and fried mock chicken, served on a Belgian style waffle, topped with arugula salad and agave. (Vegan)
