Tragic email I received today (below). Ellen, has (I believe) lived in Austin all her life. Her parents are vegetarians and she is vegan. The sad part is, for whatever reason, she has to move. She is going to a town called Beaumont, in Texas also, and it doesn’t sound good. Check her comment on Wal-Mart has Soy Yogurt — YEEEEHAAAA!!!!
What she has done for us is celebrate her home town of Austin by sending me an email listing her favorite vegan restaurants. Take a look and thanks Ellen.
Wow. I live in Austin. I’m about to move and I’ve had a really sheltered life if you think about it. Two vegan restaurants and countless vegetarian restaurants (including a vegetarian coffee house that’ll make anything vegan).
I thought that you might find these restaurants interesting. I suggest that anyone who wants good vegan food, take a trip to Austin.
Has a vegan custard even! Vegan risotto! (And I found it hard to find vegetarian risotto.)
All vegan items clearly marked on the board! Wonderful food, wonderful lemonade.
Cafe de Luz
Vegan restaurant. The only one I haven’t been too. Supposed to be wonderful.
Not my favorite. The food is a little bland.
The coffee house I was talking about earlier. When I’m craving breakfast tacos, I can get vegan ones here.
West Lynn Cafe
Upscale vegetarian restaurant with plenty of vegan options. My vegetarian parents love to go there.
As you can see, Austin is quite veggie friendly.
