Looking for a mouthwatering vegetarian meal near you?
Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable vegetarian restaurants around Detroit, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of where to meet your needs.
1. The Red Hook
Topping the list is The Red Hook. Located at 8025 Agnes St. in West Village, the vegetarian and New American spot, which also offers coffee, tea and more, is the highest-rated inexpensive vegetarian restaurant in Detroit, boasting 4.5 stars out of 76 reviews on Yelp.
Taila R. noted, "I typically drink vanilla lattes with some sort of milk substitute. Although they don't offer vanilla flavoring at this shop, they did have lavender flavoring, and there were quite a few choices for milk substitutes: almond, soy and coconut. I also tried the chocolate zucchini bread and really enjoyed that as well. I think it's important to note that this shop offers plenty of vegan options!"
Yelper Breana J. wrote, "I've had the peppermint mocha latte twice (seasonal) and have gotten a vegan/GF banana chocolate chip muffin every time, and it's delicious! A lot of their food options are vegan and gluten-free and feel somewhat healthy, which is perfect for the new year! I love this little place and am so happy I stumbled upon it!"
2. Harmony Garden Cafe
Next up is Midtown's Harmony Garden Cafe, situated at 4704 Anthony Wayne Drive. With four stars out of 96 reviews on Yelp, the Middle Eastern and vegetarian spot has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for an affordable option.
