For Vegans and Vegetarians, finding good restaurants while traveling can sometimes prove quite challenging. So to help you all out, I’ve compiled a list of 5 delicious Vegan and Vegetarian food options in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area.
1. Local Greens
124 Lomas Santa Fe Dr Ste 102, Solana Beach, CA 92075
This delightful eatery has something for everyone. Their menu offers a wide variety of vegetarian, gluten free, and non-vegetarian options – all of which are very clearly labeled to avoid any confusion. Customers have raved about almost every dish, with exceptional love for the chocolate chip cookie and the Hang Ten Thai dishes. Located just one exit north of Winners Circle Resort, Local Greens is a popular spot among locals and visitors alike!
2. Choice Juicery
437 HWY 101, #118, Solana Beach, CA 92075
With multiple locations throughout the SoCal region, Naked Cafe offers one of the widest selections of vegan friendly options we’ve found. Every item on their menu is gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-based. It’s not the best place to bring your carnivore friends, but that’s precisely the point! Their menu includes salads, bowls, superfood snacks, smoothies, and even sushi. They boast “fresh, never processed” food that is sure to give you the energy you need and the taste you crave.
3. Naked Cafe
106 S. Sierra Ave., Solana Beach, CA 92075
This is another one with something for everyone. Their menu has vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, and omnivore options to accommodate those with a sweet-tooth, those looking for a hearty meal, and those with dietary restrictions. Open for breakfast and lunch, you’ll find an environmentally conscious, globally inspired atmosphere awaits.
4. Lockwood Table Cafe
346B S Cedros Ave., Solana Beach, CA 92075
Open for breakfast and lunch, this unique spot offers a New American style menu filled with vegetarian options. The sizeable portions are brought to your table in the Starbucks-meets-French bistro atmosphere. In addition, its Cedros Avenue location brings you right into the heart of Solana Beach, surrounded by boutiques and other locally-owned hot spots.
5. Veggie Grill
4353 La Jolla Village Drive, #H28, San Diego, CA 92122
This one is a bit farther out of the way for our resort guests, but if you’re planning a day down in and around San Diego or don’t mind driving about 15 minutes, this is where you’ll find plenty of Vegan options. Every menu item here is free of meat, dairy, eggs and other animal products. They exclusively use mono-saturated fats, such as rice bran oil, canola and seed oils. Check this place out for a casual vegan dining experience – you won’t believe it’s not meat!
