3 Vegan Restaurants to Try in Tampa Bay


Hayley Greenlaw, Staff Writer


Vegan restaurants in the Tampa Bay area are very hard to come by, so when you do discover one, is it actually worth it? Here are three local vegan restaurants that are definitely worth the visit.


  • Loving Hut

The Loving Hut is just how it sounds. The restaurant gives off a loving impression, especially from the employees that work there. They offer vegan food while still catering to non-vegans with options such as subs and wraps. The food is set at reasonable prices, so you won’t feel like eating healthy is emptying your wallet. Even if you aren’t vegan, the Loving Hut has foods and flavors everyone can enjoy.


  • Evos

Evos is a great place to eat if you’re new to experiencing vegan foods. In addition to their vegan options, they have many other choices, including dishes with meat and fish. Around the restaurant, there are labels informing the customers about the eco-friendly furniture and paint they use. The food consists of healthy alternatives, vegan and otherwise, and it’s quick. Evos offers healthy food for people on the go, and also gives you the chance to experience different dishes if you’re scared to try something truly vegan.


  • Pure Kitchen

Pure Kitchen truly keeps their food “pure” by using fresh ingredients. The quantities are great for such a reasonable price. You can also walk in and grab a ready-made container of whatever type of food you’re craving. The restaurant itself is small, so it’s very convenient to have grab-and-go options available. The restaurant also offers raw vegan options, which is nice because it can be hard to find raw vegan choices in Tampa. Pure Kitchen is a quick and delicious way to get the vegan food you want.

If you are vegan yourself or enjoy eating vegan food in general, these three places are great restaurants to treat both your taste buds and your wallet. With such scarce options in Tampa, it’s always good to take advantage of the restaurant variety you have.
