Vegan Restaurants in Grand Rapids, MI


Grand Rapids’ Only 100% Vegan Restaurant
*Little Africa Ethiopian Cuisine*

Combo Platter
The menu has recently changed, and sadly the All You Can Eat Special is gone; however, the Combo Platter is still a great deal at $11.50 per person. Good luck getting samosas or vegan ice cream – they’re on the menu, but never available! Always call before attempting to stop in for lunch. The restaurant is generally open by 5pm for dinner.

Apple Valley Natural Foods
Blog post coming soon! No produce. Smaller than Harvest Health, but great for picking up staple items and vegan treats/faux foods.

Dollar Tree Dollar Store
Vegan at the Dollar Store A few items of interest, including Just Mayo!
Chef Ernesto’s Samosas, Veggie Burgers, and Battered Mushrooms

I havenโ€™t done a review in a blog post yet since so far I’ve only had produce delivered, but I definitely recommend checking this out if you live in the greater Grand Rapids area. Organic produce delivered right to your door, and theyโ€™re working on expanding other offerings as well. So far there isnโ€™t much else for vegans besides some salads from the deli and a few snacks, but keep checking back! This is very convenient for people that want to cut down on shopping time.

Harvest Health Foods
Blog post coming soon! But both locations stock organic produce, dried goods, and spices, and tons of vegan treats and faux foods.

    • I’ll add it as soon as I have a review! I’ve actually tried to do it twice, but it’s so dark in there I haven’t been able to get good pictures. I will try again soon ๐Ÿ™‚

      • If by chance you want to meet me there, I’ll treat … I’ve supply locally foraged wild mushrooms to Bartertown for a few years now … and thus have a huge credit. In either case, it needs to be on your site! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The pizza place next door (formerly CVLT Pizza) is also excellent, with lots of Vegan options. It was renamed The Pizza Experiment and now has a slightly different approach, and decor … it actually opens today (I was there yesterday supplying some dehydrated locally foraged mushrooms … was given a pizza to try … best pizza, by far, in town). This is a perfect place for you to review for “Pizza Week” … I’ve got credit there too, so let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚
