We don’t envy anyone trying to keep to a strictly vegetarian diet while traveling in the American South, but it’s far more doable than it was even ten years ago. Courtney Devores, writing for the Charlotte Observer, runs down the wide spectrum of options available in Charlotte, NC for vegans and vegetarians. The options range from raw food emporiums to regular eateries with an elevated health consciousness.

Zada Jane’s, a popular Queen City breakfast spot (and not at all strictly veg) offers soysage with herb gravy for a veg take on biscuits and gravy. There are lots of vegetable and cheese-centric sandwiches and salads on the lunch menu, too, along with a vegan soup of the day. See Courtney’s story here.
