Top 10 Vegetarian Restaurants in Austin

A Story By

We know Austin is known for its BBQ, being referred to as “Barbeque City” sometimes. But, there is a SOLID base of vegetarian restaurants in Austin. 

Are you a veggie eater? Have no fear! We have the list for you. We have compiled a list of top vegetarian restaurants in Austin. 

Make sure to call each business ahead of time to see it is still open and the hours have not changed. Be sure to wear a mask and tip well! If you want to stay in, no problem. Order delivery and snuggle up on your couch.

Do you know of a vegetarian restaurant in Austin that we didn’t mention? DM us! We will be sure to include it.

Bouldin Creek Cafe is a casual indoor/outdoor coffee shop meets restaurant serves up some dang good non-meat fixins. If you get there in the morning, head to the patio and order the breakfast tacos. You will not be disappointed. If mornings aren’t your thing, we totally get it. Go there for dinner and get the spicy pesto to start and the Wanna-BLT for your main. See you there! You’re buying, right?

Mother’s Cafe is a hippie cafe that is located in Hyde Park. John Silberberg, the cafe’s owner, said that “We’re a restaurant that believes in the flavor of the actual food.” This means that they are using less sugar, less salt, and avoiding using heavy sauces. We recommend their Spartichoke Enchiladas.

Citizen Eatery’s menu is filled with contemporary vegetarian food. Their veggie burgers put the crumbley, old, we-are-way-too-used-to-this burgers to shame. Their Homestyle  Original Burger can’t be ignored. Put a fried egg and some avocado on it and you are in heaven. And pro-tip nothing is over $15 so, go on girl, order that extra drink.

Andrea Dawson’s food truck, Sassy’s Vegetarian Soul Food, is just like visiting grandmas house except vegetarian. That’s right, we said “soul food” and “vegetarian” in the same sentence.
