Portland. A land of beautiful scenery, craft beers, bike paths, and inclusiveness. But that’s not all… Portland also has a (well-deserved) reputation as a vegan haven. Across the city, you’ll find everything from cheap eats, greasy diner food, bakeries, ice cream, and even high-end restaurants all with fully vegan menus, or great options. So if you’re interested in finding the best vegan food in Portland, read on for a quick guide to some of the top options!
The Bye and Bye
1011 NE Alberta St
No list of the best vegan restaurants in Portland is complete without listing this must-visit spot! The Bye and Bye is a bar with a fully-vegan menu. Don’t worry if you don’t drink – it has a great atmosphere to stop in and grab a bite. Try the bowls, and you’ll understand why this place is a solid go-to.
Vtopia Cheese Shop
1628 SW Jefferson St
“I could go vegan, but what about cheese!?” Have you heard this one before? Take your pal to Vtopia and show them there’s no reason to choose between the two. Vtopia is Portland’s only all-vegan cheese shop, specializing in house-made and aged cheeses. Drop-in for a cheese plate, or for cheesy menu items like a grilled cheese sandwich, mac-and-cheese, or a Caprese salad.
4255 SE Belmont St
Located at the Bite on Belmont food cart pod, Dinger’s Deli is an all-vegan deli, and sandwiches are their specialty! Try the Cuban (with jackfruit pulled-pork and house-made ham and salami topped with vegan cheese), or the massive, juicy Cheesesteak Philly. If sandwiches are your thing, this may be the best vegan food in Portland.
8201 SE Powell Blvd
Okay, so visitors to Portland are always raving about the donuts – ever since Voodoo Doughnuts made a name for themselves in the city, Portland conjures up images of donuts in many people’s minds. If you love donuts… have no fear. You can join in the banter, and maybe convert a few friends, at the all-vegan donut shop Doe Donuts. They have year-round flavors which will become staples for your donut craving, and specialty flavors (while supplies last) to keep it fresh. If you’re in the mood for ice cream, they also have you covered with all-vegan options.
1403 SE Belmont St
One of the top vegan restaurants in Portland is Farm Spirit, who dedicate themselves to pushing the limit of vegan cuisine with tasting menus honoring the Cascadia region. Dishes are made with seasonal and local ingredients, and so beautifully plated you may not want to bite into them (though you’ll be happy you did!) Dining is available by purchasing tickets in advance, and a gluten-free and nut-free menu is available with notice.
