    7 Best Vegan Restaurants in Philly

    The task of finding a restaurant that all of your friends will enjoy can be quite daunting. In the age of options where many people have dietary restrictions, it makes the task even harder.

    What’s the solution? In my opinion, vegan restaurants. They offer delicious eats that your vegan, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, and omnivore friends can all enjoy together!  

    Disclaimer: I am not even vegan. However, I am an avid food lover with a deep respect for all of its many varieties. Philly has one of the best vegan scenes around so anyone with an appreciation for food can appreciate these restaurants.
