Then there is Freesoulcaffe on 191 E Main St. in Tustin. Along with their chill, industrial-chic decor, Freesoulcaffe is serving up some very flavorful vegan dishes. In particular, their desserts such as the peanut butter torte. For any panini lover out there, be sure to order their Panini Poulet.

4. Healthy Junk

Up next is Healthy Junk on 201 W Center Street Promenade B in Anaheim. Open daily from 10 AM to 9 PM, Healthy Junk has some great gluten-free options. Of everything on their menu, we cannot get enough of their Tex-Mex dishes. The most notable of them being the Nacho-King and Chili Chez Fries.

5. Au Lac FV

There is also Au Lac, a vegan Vietnamese restaurant over on 16563 Brookhurst St in Fountain Valley. Open every day but Monday, Au Lac has outstanding shrimp dishes as well as California and spring rolls.

6. Butterleaf

Over in Irvine is Butterleaf. Here you will find hardy and healthy plant-based cuisine. Best of all, the portions are huge, leaving you with tons of leftovers. In regards to their menu, you must try their avocado bombs plus the vegan burger.  

7. True Food Kitchen

Then in Newport Beach is True Food Kitchen. One of our favorite spots on this list, True Food is open daily from 11 AM to 9 PM. This fast-casual dining experience includes a menu with both vegan and non-vegan dishes. Take for instance their edamame dumplings and spaghetti squash casserole. With their bright, post-modern decor, your True Food dining experience will have you feeling fresh and full.

8. Vegan Pizza

Now, we could not talk about vegan cuisine without including a pizza spot. Most notably, Vegan Pizza on 12022 Chapman Ave. One of the coolest parts about their pizza is their shapes. For instance, you can get yourself a traditional-looking pie or their heart-shaped pizza. As far as what you should order, you cannot go wrong with their Hawaiin pizza.

9. Mead’s Green Door

For all you vegans looking for a spot to dine out with your non-vegan friends, then make your way over to Mead’s Green Door. For the vegetarians out there, order yourself the veggie burger. And for the meat-eaters, get the BLT. Also, their side dishes are fantastic! That especially goes for the buffalo cauliflower.

10. Green Tomato Grill

Last up is Green Tomato Grill in Huntington Beach. This feel-good fast food restaurant includes rice bowls, wraps, burgers, and burritos. Whatever you order here, make sure you also get one of their agave lemonades.
