Jersey City’s rich diversity brings countless amounts of culinary options. From Italian to Indian food, picking a place to eat may be your biggest problem. Despite the variety, vegetarian-friendly restaurants were once few and far between—until now. Find out where to go if you are vegetarian or vegan.
Vegans and vegetarians can rest assured that Subia’s Vegan Cafe can take care of all of their foodie needs. From breakfast to dinner, the Downtown Jersey City spot has a selection of fresh juices, smoothies, sandwiches, tacos and burgers that will make you forget that it’s all plant-based. The Reuben sandwich, buffalo tempeh sticks, and California Dreamin’ Burger are big winners on the menu.
Vegan and vegetarian dishes abound at Jersey City’s Chutneys. With a variety of vegan options to choose from and plenty of traditional Indian foods on the menu as well, you can’t go wrong. Customer favorites include their dal lentils and samosas.
Vegetarian Indian foodies, rejoice! Sapthagiri has an exclusive, vegetarian-only menu that serves mainly northern-style Indian cuisine. Enjoy their relaxed interior, warm ambiance, and the breakfast buffet.
The Neapolitan-style pizza at Porta is delicious and draws many people to this cozy, casual and fun space.
