Being a vegan can be tough sometimes. Being a vegan in the American South can be even tougher.
When food in the South consists of delicious meats, creamy soups and gorgeously-baked goodies, it can be tricky to find vegan options readily available. Luckily, there are heaps of vegan restaurants in Atlanta to choose from, and each is vastly different in cuisine, style and taste.
Here are some of the best vegan restaurants and cafes in Atlanta.
