*UPDATED – Added another must try location for a total of 9*

If you’re looking for healthy, vegan restaurant options in the Fort Lauderdale area, I’ve got you covered! Although I left Florida years ago, I make my way back to visit family once or twice a year and every time I go back, I look to see if there are any new vegan restaurants, cafe’s or juice bars that have opened. It excites me each time because every time I go back, there is always a new vegan hot spot that has opened! 

I love to see how big the vegan community has grown and continues to grow in South Florida. It also helps that SOFLO Vegans does a great job spreading the word, engaging and getting the community involved with all kinds of vegan events and openings with a mission of making South Florida a global hotspot for veganism. 

I encourage you to explore their website to learn more. 

There are roughly over twenty 100% vegan restaurants, cafes and bakeries in the area without counting the vegetarian and vegan-friendly ones. The options for vegan food is limitless. And trust me when I say, you will have plenty to choose from!
