Your Guide To Vegan- And Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurants In Fargo-Moorhead


Photos by Paul Flessland and J. Alan Paul Photography

It’s no secret that Fargo-Moorhead is booming with unique restaurants and creative eats. And luckily, for the non-meat-eaters and/or the dairy-free folk, several local restaurants offer great vegan and vegetarian options. That’s why we created a glimpse of the many dining options with vegetarian- and vegan-friendly menu items, and we even asked a few local vegetarians and vegans for their dish recommendations.

Many locations can also make alterations to dishes to make them vegan. Always ask for verification if your dish is vegan or vegetarian before ordering just to be sure.

If you’re looking to meet up with other vegans and vegetarians in the F-M area, check out the group FMVeg on Facebook. You can also find more information about the group’s meetups at
