Vegans usually buy their food fresh and prepare their meals at home since it is the only way they can be sure that it is within the guidelines of their strict diet. Common ingredients found in many prepared foods such as milk, eggs and cheese are not allowed on the vegan diet which makes dining out sometimes very difficult. Since the animal product free lifestyle is increasing in popularity so are the dining options; restaurants, cafés and eateries of all types want you to know that they are aware of your special vegan food needs. Here is a list of popular places in Royal Oak that have vegan friendly menu options:
Bean & Leaf Café at 106 South Main Street – specializes in baked goods and coffee.
Beirut Palace at 105 South Main Street – casual Middle Eastern dining.
Pizzallica at 121 East Thirteen Mile Road – pizza place with vegan cheese and mock meats
Pronto at 608 South Washington Ave. – Italian food
What Crepe? At 317 South Washington Ave – gourmet crepe bistro
If enough health conscious people order these vegan friendly options and the owners of these establishments realize there is a need for healthy cuisine then more options will become available. When you find a place you like go there often and encourage your friends to dine there to support that eatery or restaurant and let them know that you love the vegan friendly options available.
