Denver

Watercourse Foods

Watercourse Foods is the oldest vegan restaurant in Denver (opening in 1998). They use local venders and sustainable business practices to create a delicious and unique menu. From the food to the staff, they strive for ultimate sustainability.

We cultivate an environment of inclusivity. Our menu items are free of artificial colors, preservatives, flavors, and hydrogenated fats. We make food to nourish our community with fresh ingredients. We are both a neighborhood gathering place and a world-wide destination.

Somebody People

A 100% zero-waste restaurant, Somebody People serves an impressive selection of cocktails and zesty Mediterranean food. They also offer café-style food like pancakes, avocado toast and lattes. They vow to never use fake meats so you can be sure you are getting high-quality vegan food. One more thing to mention, they do not offer take out boxes so be sure to bring your own if you can’t finish your plate!

The creation of Somebody People was sparked by Tricia and Sam Maher's desire to bring fresh rustic Mediterranean flavors to the Denver community. "We celebrate the local seasons, embrace the whole vegetable, and provide an entertaining service in a fun filled environment whilst minimizing waste along the way.”

Radha Govinda’s

Radha Govinda’s focuses on conscious eating in an ambient environment. Their menu is organic vegan food. They are an alcohol-free location and they only use biodegradable takeout utensils.

Not only do they cook food that’s good for your body, they also cook for your soul. “It is important to us that guests leave with full hearts! That’s why we provide a clean, bright, cozy atmosphere with natural materials, skylights, plants, and uplifting, inspirational music and artwork”.

Colorado Springs

Santana’s Vegan Grill

This vegan grill offers all your fast food faves like burgers, meatballs, hot dogs, grilled cheeses, and more. Aside from great food, this place is affordable ($) and well-loved. Just read some of their reviews!

“I couldn't even begin to tell you the happiness my heart felt when pulling up to this place! Being vegan in the high Rockies is not an easy task but Santana's does a crazy amazing job of it. Absolutely amazed and floored and forever a fan of Dusty Hernandez, his staff and establishment! Thank you a zillion times over”. (Lisandra C).

The Burrowing Owl Lounge

This rustic lounge was started by Tyler and Cody – two vegans who want to change the landscape with a “lead by example” mentality. “We don’t want to preach or be in people’s faces, we simply want to create a cool timeless space for people to gather and be open and honest with each other while saving a little bit of nature and earth along the way.”

As well as serving up delicious meals like mac & cheese and tacos and burritos, they also support a number of nonprofit organizations. You can read more about that here.

Boulder

Shine Restaurant & Potion Bar

This happening spot boasts a gluten free kitchen, organic ingredients, and a made-from-scratch menu. They are committed to sustainability by being non-GMO, composting all food scraps, providing an inclusive menu, and supporting the community. Shine has so much to offer, we can’t wait for you to try it.

Now for their potion bar, “shine potions are enchanted beverages intended to help you transform your experience of life”. These potions are filled with good-for-you ingredients like Sassafras Bark, Butterfly Pea Flower, and Ashwagandha”.

Thrive

Thrive is a raw food drive-thru restaurant (how convenient is that?) that serves a variety of soups, salads, probiotic drinks, and chocolaty treats. Thrive is perfect for satisfying your craving for nourishment. They are all about color, both in their food and in their establishment. “Eat in peace knowing that everything at Thrive is gluten-free. It’s also raw, vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, organic and soy-free, but we promise you don’t need to be a follower of any diet to enjoy our food.
