It’s challenging enough to get the meals you loved before the pandemic, since Stay at Home has been implemented. If your family, or members of your family are vegetarian or vegan, it may seem next to impossible. The good news is that several local restaurants are offering both vegetarian and vegan dishes for delivery or pickup! Before you decide on your next dinner, read on to find out more.

Pre-Covid-19, this vegetarian was a favorite spot for local veggies and vegans. You may not be able to dine in, but you can certainly take out or order delivery.

Happy Day Juice Co.
This lovely little spot is offering free juice delivery to all of Portland. As if we needed another reason to love them! Order up their cold-pressed juices, vegan cheeses, gluten-free granola, and nut milks to keep your family nourished and healthy through these trying times! Even the non-vegans in the family will love them.
4539 NE Fremont St
If you love supporting woman-owned, Portland-based businesses, then you’ll want to get your breakfast from this awesome eatery. It specializes in artisan vegan donuts and ice creams, made from scratch with local, fresh and sometimes usual ingredients. We think you’ll love their strawberry rhubarb fritter, salted tahini donut and the pineapple pizza (it’s sweet and savory with fresh pineapple glaze, tomato chutney, Brazil nut parmesan, and red pepper flakes.). Or indulge in their salted vanilla bean ice cream.

They say that eating one of their bowls is like eating a hug. We do not disagree. One of the most nourishing dishes in town, all bowls are nut, gluten, wheat, hydrogenated oil and guilt free and come with brown rice, black and red beans, avocado, cilantro, black olives, Tillamook cheddar, sour cream, salsa and Tali Sauce. Be careful, they are addictive! They come in Bambino or Big Bowl sizes and you can order them either fully loaded (vegetarian) or veganized! The NW 23rd, Hawthorne, North Portland, and Hollywood locations are open for takeout. And families can also order bowls for delivery through Caviar and bike couriers.
Who doesn’t love a tasty grilled cheese sandwich? This vegan grilled cheese food cart located in the parking lot of Jet Black Coffee Company, is accepting online and call-in orders curbside pickup. We suggest The Teddy with it’s three cheeses all melted on toast. If you want more, try The Jon with basil ricotta, smoked provolone, grilled mushrooms and potato chips!
Secret Pizza Society
This local favorite is open for orders with limited hours: 1 to 9 p.m. You can choose from a variety of pies with fun names like the Chalupa Batman, El’ Guapo, and Brother Wilton. There is also a variety of salads to choose from to accompany your slice. Good news, they have options just for kids too!
