One major benefit of traveling to NYC and LA is the abundance of veg and gluten free options and restaurants. I always take advantage of my fave spots and this time added some new ones to the list!
I stopped into Peacefood Cafe one morning for a Pumpkin Spice Latte and delicious GF Pumpkin Loaf. The tofu scramble is yummy, also!
Dinner at Cafe Blossom in the West Village was amazing. We shared a variety of dishes to try a little bit of everything, and it was all delicious! We tasted the Chickpea Fritters, Caesar Salad, Sunflower Burger, Berry BBQ Tempeh, Quinoa Spaghetti (which was tdf!).
I ventured to Pure Food & Wine for a prix fixe brunch, where I ordered the Caesar Salad, Tortilla Wraps and Raw Lemon Bar. The salad was great, and the lemon bar had the perfect subtle taste.
Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co is the ultimate guilt-free treat. The Banana soft serve is so delicious! Topped with fresh fruit, coconut, carob chips and a gluten free waffle, it was perfection. ;)
Fresh & Co was conveniently located across from my hotel. Hot quinoa bowls and create your own salads, make for the perfect quick dinner! I tried the warm Kimchee Quinoa Stir-fry Bowl, it was yummy.
Le Pain Quotidien is one of my favorites! I adore their Quinoa Taboule Salad, but this time I opted for the Turmeric Chai Latte and Kale Caesar Salad. It was a nice change for the new season.
When craving a quick slice, Cafe Viva, offers both vegan and gluten free pizza, although Pala takes the spot as my fave.
For quick lunch takeout that’s totally green and healthy, Green Symphony has an abundance of options. I opted for the kale salad.
While in the West Village, we had dinner at S’Nice. I ordered the quinoa salad, it was full of flavor.
If you crave froyo, Tutti Frutti offers a variety of soy frozen yogurt and fresh fruit and carob toppings and it’s delicious!
A few others that I usually visit while in the city…
Babycakes NYC is the ultimate vegan, gluten free bakery. Everything is scrumptious from their doughnuts, to cupcakes, to cinnamon toasties. My birthday cake is even shipped from there every year.
Terri NYC is great for wraps, salads, fresh juices or a quick snack. Their smoothies are really yummy too, and are open early for breakfast.
Burrito Box is the ultimate Mexican fix. Their vegan options go above and beyond, and never disappoint. Great for delivery or takeout.
Blossom Du Jour is great for a quick lunch and fresh pressed juices on hand.
Two Boots is perfect when craving a big NY slice of pizza, and is conveniently located around the city.
