Portland has a longstanding reputation as a vegan haven, with an abundance of animal-product-free dining: meatless taquerias, cream-less creameries, plant-based pizzas. Nowadays, even the meatiest of restaurants offer a handful of vegan options, but Portland vegans and vegetarians are lucky to live in a city with many exclusively meatless restaurants spanning across multiple cuisines. Whether you’re looking for pizza, burgers, noodle bowls, tacos, or ice cream, Portland restaurants have got you covered.
Updated quarterly, Eater’s vegan and vegetarian essentials map highlights 14 of the major players leading the way in Portland’s vegan dining scene, thanks to creative chefs leading the kitchens and the city’s proximity to farm produce and renowned meatless alternatives. As always, the restaurants on this map are not ranked; rather, they’re organized geographically.
