Every vegan living in the South has most likely already figured out that there are no restaurants that fully cater to their dietary needs. While vegetarians have a broader range of options, there are only about one or two places that are completely meat-free within even a 20-mile range. With this being said though, there are many new restaurants throughout the area that are starting to cater more and more to this lifestyle. For anyone out there who is struggling to find the perfect meat-free eatery, below will be a list of restaurants that are vegan and vegetarian-friendly.

First of all, I can almost guarantee that every Indian restaurant in the area will be mainly vegetarian, and at the very least will have more than one option on their menu. My personal favorite when it comes to Indian cuisine is Swad. Located on 1421 Laurens Road, Swad has a multitude of options on their menu, all of which are completely vegetarian. Upon request, many of their menu items can be made vegan as well. Other Indian restaurants in the Greenville area are the Saffron Indian Cuisine, located on Woodruff, and Handi Indian Cuisine, located on Main Street.

For those who dislike Indian cuisine, there are still many options to choose from. Sun Belly, located on W Blue Ridge Drive has an array of vegetarian options, stemming from Thai cuisine all the way to southern comfort favorites. For times when I need a quick snack to hold me over rather than a full meal, I like to go to Clean Juice, which is located on Woodruff Road. Most known for their infamous smoothies and acai bowls, this restaurant provides its consumers with dozens of small meals to choose from.

So while there may not be a million options out there when it comes to primarily vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the area, those that are available have been generally very well-received. The more people branch out and try these restaurants out, the higher the demand will be for more vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the future!
