A Vegetarian's Guide to Indy Travel

As a vegetarian who grew up in Chicago, a city known for sausage and a signature hot dog, I get why my fellow veggies might worry about going hungry in Indiana, land of the shrimp cocktail, coney dogs, and breaded pork sandwiches.

But have no fear—I spent a week eating my way through Indy and found plenty of restaurants serving fresh, farm-to-table eats that accommodated dietary restrictions.

Go for Broken Yolks at Café Patachou

Cafe PatachouThis hip local chain has loads of gluten-free and vegan options. Even better, all the dishes are clearly marked “V” for Vegan and “GF” for gluten-free so you don’t have to comb through the ingredients or interrogate the staff. Broken yolks are a clear favorite, but if you’re vegan, the vegan Cuban breakfast will hit the spot.

Get Comfort Food at Three Carrots

Three Carrots“Not chos,” chili cheese fries, cookies and cream cheesecake. Who says being vegetarian means missing out? Three Carrots serves up all the meaty comfort food without the meat. Visit the location in the historic City Market or the location in Fountain Sqaure neighborhood. 

Give Back at Public Greens

Public GreensDirectly on the Monon Trail, Public Greens is the eatery every vegetarian or vegan wishes they had nearby. It’s fast, it’s healthy, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Patachou Foundation, which feeds food-insecure children in the Indianapolis community.

Happy eating!
