I just have to brag about some of my favorite vegan spots in Orange County for a minute. Here in the OC, we are lucky to have an ever growing number of restaurants offering vegan options. Thus, I thought I would share some of my favorite vegan spots in Orange County that I frequent. Vegan or not, anyone can still enjoy these delicious spots! Whether you’re r looking for a healthy vegan meal or a sweet dessert, one of these places is sure to satisfy that craving.
Seabirds Kitchen | Costa Mesa
I will say this is probably my favorite vegan spots in Orange County. They have great tacos that I highly recommend, but the nachos are where it’s at! Something about the creamy vegan cheese covered jackfruit (typically I don’t like jackfruit) that is just the right amount, not leaving you with a bunch of naked tortilla chips towards the end of your meal. I wish the guacamole came on top of the nachos, but unfortunately that needs to be added on as an extra which is worth it.
Vibe Organic Kitchen & Juice | Newport Beach
Vibe Kitchen in definitely going to be your healthiest spot. Everything here is organic, vegan, and gluten free. Everything from smoothies and juices to tacos and burgers ( healthy version of a burger, a non vegan will definitely notice the difference) One of my favorite meals (not pictured here) at Vibe are the jackfruit tacos on their corn tortillas. Very filling and of course healthy!
Hug Life Ice Cream | Orange
I was pretty excited when I found out about Hug Life Ice cream. It was almost too good to be true. EVERYTHING here is vegan. Every flavor, finally! the days of being offered a sorbet are long gone
Plant Power | Fountain Valley
I originally stumbled across Plant Power driving through the Redlands area. I saw their billboard and instantly made a pit stop at their Redlands location. The classic bacon cheese burger is delicious! I had to get the strawberry shake along with the “Iconic fries” which is basically their vegan version of In-N-Outs animal style fries.
