Although just 3% of Americans follow a plant-based vegan diet, that equates to 9.6 million people and a 300% increase in the last 15 years. The reasons for going vegan are compelling. Some do it for the impact on animals or the environment. Others choose the diet for health benefits or to lower the risk for certain diseases.
No matter the reason, chances are, you know a vegan or six. Maybe it’s you. Maybe you participate in the vegan lifestyle on a part-time basis, called “flexitarian”. Or maybe you’re just craving some good plant-based food tonight.
Dining out as or with a vegan requires just a little extra research if you don’t want to end up with the house salad (hold the dressing) as your only choice. We’re here to make things easy for you! There are some great places for vegan food in Park City, Utah, so read on to discover the best.

The Buddha Bowl featuring chai tea infused oatmeal sounds delicious with a hot cup of coffee, espresso or tea from their large drink menu. https://www.atticustea.com
9. Hearth and Hill
I always take out-of-town vegan friends here. Locally owned with a great selection of wine, spirits and brews, Hearth and Hill has a little something for everyone. For the vegan and plant-based lovers in your crew, try the white bean hummus to start, with a wonderful selection of “harvestable” salads that could stand on their own. For those looking for something a little heartier, Cauliflower Enchiladas always hit the spot. https://hearth-hill.com

7. Harvest Park City
If you’re looking for a vegan breakfast to fuel your day in Park City, look no further than the corner Park Ave. and 9th Street in Old Town. The folks at Harvest like to know where their food comes from, and they want to eat it with minimal processing. https://harvestparkcity.com
Featuring delicious, casual fare that is just as good to-go as it is dine-in, you’ll love the Israeli-inspired vegan options at Nosh. Considering the restaurant began out of a quest for the perfect falafel, we highly recommend it. They also feature amazing family-style menus and catering options. https://www.noshpc.com
With breakfast choices like an acai bowl, smashed pea and avocado toast and a granola bowl to die for, this is an excellent vegan choice for breakfast all day. Their lunch options are a little slimmer on the vegan choices, but again – breakfast all day. What’s not to love from this Australian-born restaurant that brings great food, coffee and service to our town. Be sure to check their online waitlist. https://www.five5eeds.com
4. Silver Star Cafe
Started in 2010 and fabulously located at the intersection of the Park City Municipal Golf Course, the Armstrong hiking and biking trail, and a historical mine symbolizing our town’s history. They have clearly labeled vegetarian and vegan options on the menu like lentil chili, sweet potato and chickpea buddha bowl, and a grilled halloumi, pepper and avocado sandwich. Be sure to check out their live acoustic music dinner shows, too. https://www.thesilverstarcafe.com

Another Israeli-style restaurant to top this list, Reef’s Restaurant recently moved from Kimball Junction to Deer Valley Drive. Their simple yet amazing menu includes traditional hummus, falafel and Baba ghanoush and specialties like Sesame Cabbage Salad and Eggplant Moussaka. https://www.reefsrestaurant.com
2. Vessel Kitchen
Founded in 2016, Vessel has quickly grown to four Utah locations – a testament to its amazing food and business model. It’s the perfect balance of quick, yet made-to-order, with dine-in and carry-out options. Their menu has a variety of dietary denotations including Vegan, Whole 30, Vegetarian, and whether it contains Soy, Nuts, Dairy, Gluten or Eggs. Try the custom salad bowl with tahini spiced falafel, the lemon-chive quinoa, caramelized sweet potato hash, cashew Ceasar broccoli or roasted Brussels sprouts and you will not be disappointed. https://www.vesselkitchen.com
