Vegan Food in Bellingham and Whatcom County

While Aslan may be known for their beer, their food is a highlight all on its own. Aslan works to provide customers with 100% organic brews and food that focuses on using local resources.

Enjoy options like a variety of vegan rice bowls and BBQ tofu.

Big Love Juice invites everyone who comes to their store to learn more about the world of superfoods. Specializing in serving the freshest ingredients, Big Love uses locally sourced produce in order to keep customers happy and healthy.

Black Sheep specializes in margaritas with a light menu of fresh and delicious tacos served on homemade tortillas. Like many other restaurants in Bellingham, Black Sheep is dedicated to making food from scratch with local ingredients.

Their taco list includes rotating vegan options made with either cauliflower or sweet potatoes. 

La Fiamma has been in Downtown Bellingham since 1998. They have remained a local favorite and have even won awards for Best Recipe by the National Association of Pizza Operators. 

Turn one of La Fiamma’s delicious pizzas into a tasty vegan treat thanks to their vegan cheese.

Leaf & Ladle is on a mission to provide Bellingham with a never-ending supply of amazingly fresh food. Featuring a constantly evolving menu, they offer a variety of soups, salads, paninis, and wraps made from the produce of that season. 

Their welcoming motto, “whether you’re a meat eater, vegan, gluten free or just plain hungry, we want to feed you”, means everyone will find something tasty at Leaf & Ladle.

Old Town Cafe is known for its incredible breakfast and brunch, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. They strive to use as many local ingredients as possible, and, thanks to Whatcom County's vibrant farm-to-table scene, everything they need for a delicious meal is right in our backyard.

Old Town is not only one of the oldest businesses in Bellingham, it is also located in one of the oldest downtown buildings, the Oakland Block building, which was built in 1890 and is now listed on the National Historic Register. 

This family-friendly upbeat restaurant opened in 1988 and has worked to perfect a menu that they describe as “New Mexico meets Pacific Northwest".

Pepper Sisters is a must-try for vegans. Not only do they have a large variety of vegan dishes, they will also modify some menu items upon request!

Family-owned and run by a mother-daughter team, everything at the Fat Beet in downtown Bellingham is both vegan and gluten-free, though gluten options are available upon request. 

Find veggie and tofu bowls, shareable dips and nachos, rolls, salads, and other snackable items. They also offer all-day breakfast, brunch, an assortment of fizzy alcoholic drinks, mocktails, hot drinks, and desserts!

For delicious vegan sweets, we suggest heading to Mallard Ice Cream or Pure Bliss, both located in Downtown Bellingham. 

As you explore the restaurant scene in Bellingham, you will notice several of them offer a seasonal menu. The Wild Oat Bakery & Cafe works on the same idea. Using seasonal local ingredients to have the freshest menu possible, Wild Oat is 100% vegan and offers a variety of burgers, salads, wraps, and sandwiches. 

If you’re looking for a recommendation, the french dip sandwich (made with their house-made "Non-Beef") has been the talk of the town since their grand opening in 2018. 

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
