Texas is home to lots of 100% organic, vegan cafés and small restaurants that are bursting with flavor and personality. And while the pandemic means many cafes have to accept online orders only at the moment, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the food.
So come join us as we take a look at the 6 best vegan cafés in Texas right now!
Counter Culture has a great name — and a great ethos. This vegan café, located in the heart of Austin, reuses, recycles or composts a whopping 97% of their waste. They also source as much food from local artisans as possible, and anything they sell is fresh, organic, and plant-based.
Their values, which you can find on their homepage, include feeding the planet and “doing the right thing,” while their menu is chock-full of hearty vegan goodness.
Oh, and they have a patio, too. Perfect for those hot, sunny days.
What else? Gift cards are available.
Address: 2337 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702
Green Seed Vegan
Green Seed Vegan is open seven days a week. At the moment, it’s open for takeout and delivery only, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying their vegan culinary delights! At Green Seed Vegan, you can enjoy the likes of freshly pressed paninis, salads, and some delicious gluten-free desserts.
Sides include the likes of sweet potato dill fries and cauliflower nuggets. Yummy!
What else? Green Seed Vegan offers catering services.

Vegan Food House
Vegan Food House is open five days a week (it’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays at the time of writing) and — as you’ve already guessed — sells 100% vegan dishes.
It’s self-described as a “cozy, cabin-like space” that welcomes vegans as well as those who might not be fully vegan just yet, but who love vegan food.
What kind of vegan food? Fast food, baby! Here, you will find vegan versions of burgers, tacos — and, of course, WINGS.
What else? During the pandemic, Vegan Food House will only be accepting online orders.

V-Eats is all about healthy food done right. Their menu is stocked with vegan treats, from cheeseburgers to stir fries, and while it’s not the biggest menu we’ve ever seen, it’s definitely one of the most salivating.
Oh, and the home-made guacamole is to die for.
They’re on UberEats, too, and you can use the app to buy 1 impossible burger and get the second free.
What else? Gift cards are available.
Address: 3011 Gulden Ln Suite 116, Dallas, TX 75212
The Healthy Hippie Cafe
The Healthy Hippie Cafe is an organic, vegan café that serves up plant-based treats. On the menu is turmeric tea, broccoli bites, vegan chili, bowls, buns, wraps, and more.
And while The Healthy Hippie Cafe is a warm, laidback and super friendly place to fill your belly in, it’s much more than that. The café also offers in-person and phone consultations with anyone who’s looking to get their diet on track via a detox program that’s rich with super foods and essentially doing the right things.
What else? The Healthy Hippie Cafe offers catering services, too.
Address: 6600 Denton Hwy #210, Watauga, TX 76148
Bouldin Creek Cafe
Bouldin Creek Cafe is currently offering curbside service only at the moment as we continue to fight the pandemic. You need to order online, but we think it’s well worth doing so because this vegan eatery serves up some tasty, wholesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes.
Everything is made from scratch to order, the café has been operating since 2000, and as well as good food they also pride themselves on offering a refreshing cup of coffee.
What else? Pre-pandemic, Bouldin Creek Cafe would line their walls with art produced by local artists.
Address: 1900 S 1st St, Austin, TX 78704
