Linger is by far our favorite place to eat. Linger is not exclusively vegan but has some of the best vegan food around. They serve tapa style, with dishes from around the world. Mike likes their bar selection. Their vegan dessert is out of this world. The service is beyond incredible and friendly. Reservations are highly recommended.
The best vegan Mexican food in the state! Tarascos already had a full page of veg options and we simply asked if they could do vegan. Amazing. Since everything is done to order practically the entire veg menu can be done vegan. My favorite are the enchiladas espinicas (spinach) but everything I have had is delish. Try the grilled cactus if you never have. And be sure to order a jugo natural, a fresh juice!

Native Foods Cafe
Opened in Denver in October of 2013 and we have LOVED them in Boulder, Palm Springs and especially Encinitas (which in our experience has been our favorite). All vegan, lots of options. My favorite was the Soul Bowl but that currently is not on the menu. Great for date night or with a bunch of people you love!

Owned and created by the same team that is at Linger, we like to go to Root Down for more special occasions (Linger is more like our hang out). The food is delish. Great service. Definitely go all out, including dessert and drinks. Reservations are highly recommended.
Hops & Pie
Vegan pizza! This is our favorite in Denver at the moment. In the Highlands neighborhood so not far for us. The pizza is delish and they offer Daiya and well as vegan meats and tofu. They also have an incredibly flavorful vegan mac n cheese. YES! For you beer lovers, they have something for everyone.

All-vegan cafe in Denver, just east of downtown. New, and we have already been there many times. Great place for a treat, or if you want to turn your office mates onto vegan delicacies you can bring a variety of what they offer into the office!

Yak and Yeti
Just northwest of here in Arvada we have come to love this place. New owners or management or something which has taken the spark away from it but the food is still wonderful and the service is good. They have a ton of Indian/Tibetan vegan dishes on their menu, including Mike's favorite, the vegan Chana Saag (the only place we have ever found it vegan!).
I have been going here for 14 years, ever since I first moved to Denver. The family that owns it is awesome and I have always gotten wonderful vegan food with great service. This is an Asian Bistro so there are a lot of tofu options, all very good.
We can't talk about food in the Denver area without mentioning our new vegan oasis, Nooch Market. Not a restaurant but for sure a place to stock up on vegan goodies. We totally adore the owners and see great things for them and our community.
Delsih vegan pho, just down the street from Tarascos. Yes, we have tested it and asked all of the questions. It's #21 on the menu (double check). Small, medium and large and for me the medium has been more than enough.

Sweet Action Ice Cream
One of our favorite places and one of our favorite couples! They always have two vegan flavors of ice cream plus at least two vegan sorbets. Check out the freezer for vegan ice cream sandwiches.
New to this list. They are now 100% vegan and we have been three times in the last two weeks. Great new menu. Service meets our high standards. The cauliflower wings are crazy delicious as is my old favorite, Amsterdam Hash.
Home of delish vegan subs. If you're staying downtown you are close! I have tried three of their several vegan sub options and have enjoyed each one. Staff is friendly. If you are a beer drinker you will like it even more.

Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill
This is a chain of restaurants in the Denver area. Love their food, and that all of their vegan options are clearly marked. The hummus is delish, and I usually get a Laffa stuffed with hummus, grilled mushrooms and more! A great example of vegan fast food.
We have had a bunch of meals prepared by Amie in her Vegan Van. We adore Amy, and are thrilled that the Denver area has a Vegan Van. From stew to vegan chicken and waffles, Amie does not disappoint. Check out her website to see where she will be next!
