Best places to eat out if you’re a vegetarian visiting Ann Arbor
Given that it has been about a year since we covered Vegan restaurants in Ann Arbor it seems appropriate to turn to the subject of vegetarian food close to your hotel in Ann Arbor.
I will, with one small exception, stay away from the excellent restaurants that I covered last year.
Detroit Street Filling Station
Last year, I highlighted all three restaurants affiliated with The Lunch Room brand (The Lunch Room, The Lunch Room Bakery & Cafe, and the Detroit Street Filling Station) but, at that time, the Filling Station had just opened.
The Detroit Filling Station offers an eclectic array of vegetarian items from pizza, to Tacos and Jackfruit Carnitas, and even Carolina Tempeh “Ribs.” They even offer a Fried Artichoke Po’ Boy.
Make sure to check out the Filling Station on your next visit to Kerrytown.
Located in the center of everything (from central campus to Kerrytown) on 205 Main Street in Ann Arbor the Vedge Cafe offers vegetarian and vegan meals made from scratch. Opened by a registered dietician with a passion for nutritious vegan and vegetarian cooking, the Vedge Cafe offers healthy, filling and well-balanced meals including hot and cold sandwiches, soups, and salads.
The Blue Nile
While the Blue Nile also accommodates meat eating patrons, the heart of Ethiopian cuisine is and always has been delicious vegetarian cooking. At the Blue Nile, you can enjoy Gomen, Metin Shiro Wat, or Kik Alecha all served in the traditional manner.
Sit and deepen your ties with your family or friends while sitting around the table sharing bread and food in the tradition of an Ethiopian royal feast. The Blue Nile is located at 221 E. Washington in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor.
Cafe Verde is a fair trade coffee house and cafe which is part of the People’s Food Co-op in Ann Arbor. Not only can you enjoy lattes, cappuccinos, espressos, macchiatos, or americanos but you can also enjoy a delicious salad, an amazing vegetarian soup, or enjoy food from their beloved hot or cold food bars.
The People’s Food Coop is located at 216 N. Fourth Avenue in downtown Ann Arbor.
The Secret: The Bell Tower is Within Walking Distance
Staying at the Bell Tower will always put you within walking distance of great food and amazing performances near all of the hotels in Ann Arbor.
And, of course, when you look for a hotel in Ann Arbor Michigan, The Bell Tower Hotel is the perfect place for you!
