In the market for a healthy food that’s good for you and the planet, too? You’re in luck! Arcade has compiled a list of the best vegan restaurants in New Orleans. From vegan reubens to sweet potato dumplings, these restaurants have options to please any palate.

Sneaky Pickle

Located in Bywater, Sneaky Pickle’s menu changes with the season (aside from a few classic favorites). Enjoy inventive salads, the classic vegan mac ‘n cheese, or a smokey tempeh reuben. Sneaky Pickle also carries a few non-vegan options for meat-loving friends who might want to tag along.

Piscobar Kitchen

Tucked away in the Selina Catahoula hotel, Piscobar Kitchen is a hidden gem. Serving up vegan Southeast Asian dishes, Piscobar puts a unique spin on traditional favorites. With only four items on the menu, Piscobar aims for quality over quantity and achieves it. Try the sweet potato dumplings for an exceptional and delicious take on a storied classic!

Breads on Oak

Family-owned and -operated, Breads on Oak serves up fresh-baked bread and vegan pastries on the daily. From artisan sourdough to vegan quiche, Breads on Oak offers a warm ambiance and delicious bakery fare 7 days a week. In addition to the delicious food, Breads is home to three adorable cats: Crooked Neck, Ninja and Sashy.

Sweet Soulfood

It wouldn’t be New Orleans without soul food, and Sweet Soulfood is here to cook up Southern classics for vegans and mashed potato-lovers alike! Sweet Soulfood has a six-day menu, serving different dishes every day of the week (except Sunday). Stop in on Monday for chicken-fried cauliflower and collard greens or Saturday for mushroom ragu and bread pudding.
