Best Local Vegetarian Food

Wildroot Cafe and Market

A newcomer to downtown, Wildroot Cafe is a culinary paradise, with a regularly changing menu, sumptuous specials and easygoing atmosphere. It went out of its way to be friendly to the non-carnivorous crowd, swung for the bleachers and knocked one out of the park in its first year in business, serving up vegetarian favorites like Wrapped, avocado toast, hashes, granolas and more.

2nd Place: Boise Co-op—Going meatless isn't easy. It can mean giving up flavors people have learned to love, facing the confusion or opposition of friends and family, and occasional awkwardness when it comes to food at restaurants and social events. Boise vegetarians have long had a resource in the Boise Co-op, which has made it a little easier for the sans-meat crowd to fill their pantries with wholesome food since 1973.

3rd Place: Shangri-La Tea Room and Vegetarian Restaurant—All too often, that which tastes good isn't good for you. Things are a little different at Shangri-La, where flavor and healthfulness go hand in hand, with a slew of delicious entrees, sandwiches, teas, juices and desserts—all meatless. The Overland tea house has won first in this category more than five times.
