13 Gypsies is a very unique restaurant. The layout is gorgeous and they have a great menu. Of course, they have items for the veggie-lover. They sell a vegan meal that consists of sautéed cauliflower that’s served with curry sauce and sweet peas! Everything is so different.

With a list of uniquely wonderful meals, European Street Café is amazing. If you’re vegetarian, vegan, or choose a gluten-free diet, this is a great place to visit. Our go-to is Athena’s gift. The meal comes with a gluten-free and vegan sausage made from spiced nuts. It’s topped with a cashew spread, spring mix, and tomatoes!

Nacho Taco

Nacho Taco has really tasty vegetarian options. Ask for some of their meat options to be substituted with more veggies. They have nachos that hit the spot. We love their nachos with black beans, fresh lettuce, gooey cheese, tomatoes, and topped with sour cream! You can also get their burritos, but filled with veggies instead!
