While most of the vegan accolades are given to the metro Detroit area there are a few other towns south (and slightly west) of the city that deserve some recognition. This is a great vegan guide if you’re staying in Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, or passing through a few smaller towns in the state. Wherever your adventures take you, I hope this vegan guide helps you find great vegan food along your way.
Like many Michiganders, going up north evokes some of my fondest memories. The shimmering blue waters of Grand Traverse Bay, the sweeping green landscapes, and the sweet taste of fresh cherries are unforgettable. The trip provides the opportunity to unplug and truly get away without even leaving the state.
Metro Detroit is full of an overwhelming diversity of food, especially vegan food. In metro Detroit there are three cities that really stand out for their culinary endeavors – Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Detroit. This guide will explore great vegan food in each city as well as a few things to do in between meals. The hardest part is deciding where you’re going to eat first.
The west side of the state is full of enchanting small towns lined with charming shops and fresh produce stands with a lovely feeling in the air to slow down and enjoy the views of Lake Michigan. Over the last few years, it has also become increasingly easier for vegans to not only enjoy West Michigan’s beautiful environment but also, the food.
