Top 5 Vegan Restaurants South of Los Angeles

Au Lac Vegetarian Restaurant

16553 Brookhurst St, Fountain Valley, CA 92708

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. The raw food here is outstanding. I try to go here everytime I'm South of L.A.

Veggie Grill

4213 Campus Dr, Irvine, CA 92612

Although I haven't been to this location, I am a huge fan of Veggie Grill. This is a must-go-to restaurant, even if you're not a vegan

118 Degrees

2981 Bristol St Ste B-5, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

I have not been to this restaurant but I hear rave reviews of it. And I used to work for Jenny at her previous cafe, so I can attest that she is an amazing raw chef.

Native Foods Inc

2937 Bristol St, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

Although I haven't been to this location, I really enjoy Native Foods. They have a great vegan selection.

Bodhi Tree Cafe

501 Main St Ste E, Huntington Beach, CA 92648

I have to admit I didn't love this place, but I enjoyed it. However, it was highly recommended and it is very popular. It is definitely worth checking out - yummy, inexpensive vegan Vietnamese food.
