Where To Eat Vegan with #HipNJ

We all know New Jersey is full of delicious restaurants – but what if you have food allergies or simply don’t care for ingesting animal products? Lucky for literally everyone in this state, there are tons of great vegan/gluten free restaurants with endless menu items that’ll make you say, “Wait, this is vegan?”

Check out some of our favorites!

  1. Good Karma Cafe –  17 E Front St Red Bank, NJ 07701
    “Best restaurant in red bank and it is vegan. A must visit even if you are not vegan.”
  2. Papa Ganache – 106 Main St Matawan, NJ 07747
    “I’m not vegan nor do I have any food allergies so I was hesitant in trying this bakery.  I never thought vegan desserts could be this good… You would never ever know these cupcakes were even vegan!”
  3. Tea NJ – 262 Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ 07302
    “Amazing place! Name should change because they are SO MUCH MORE than just tea! Especially if your vegan this should be a go to! Wraps and soups and burgers are all so good and VEGAN!!!”
  4. Kaya’s Kitchen – 1000 Main St Belmar, NJ 07719
    “Easily a great spot for vegans visiting the shore. The food is delicious and, if dining in, it’s very quaint and staff is attentive. We look forward to the certain nights when they have live music.”
  5. Killer Vegan – 996 Stuyvesant Ave Union, NJ 07083
    “Everything was delicious. The burger was especially good. Maybe the best veggie patty I have ever had.”
  6. Positivitea – 550 Bloomfield Ave Verona, NJ 07044
    “This is such a cute place that has great service and food. I was so overwhelmed with the options, but eventually settled on the mexi-cali burger with kale-slaw…I also had the strawberry milk(less)shake which tasted just like I remembered one to taste minus the dairy after taste.
    This will be my go to place every weekend.”
  7. Zest16 Little Falls Rd Fairfield, NJ 07004
    “This place is the absolute PERFECT lunch spot!! Between their juices, smoothies and bowls, I never get bored with my healthy meal choices.”
  8.  Crust & Crumble – 633 Lake Ave Asbury Park, NJ 07712
    “I would give this place 10 stars if I could as far as the vegan sandwiches go…I would HIGHLY recommend this place for a great vegan menu! Very affordable and the sandwiches are HUGE!”
  9. Blueberry Cafe Juice Bar & Vegan Grille – 547 Central Ave Newark, NJ 07107
    “This is a DIAMOND in the ROUGH! The artwork and design of the eatery is amazing. My experiences here are always pleasant!”
  10. Mama’s Cafe Baci – 260 Mountain Ave Hackettstown, NJ 07840
    “I love, love, love that Mama’s has a full vegan (and vegetarian) menu. They have separate menus altogether so vegans/vegetarians don’t have to be envious of the regular menu and feel like they’re not getting such as large/good of a selection.”Happy eating!
