Restaurants + Cocktails

1. Passion Flour Patisserie: Known for their life-changing, quick-selling almond croissant, Passion Flour has made its way into our hearts as a one-stop-shop for everything sweet. Located in the Maven District, they serve a wide range of classic pastries, a full cafe menu (looking at you, Smoked Benedict), and all the coffee you want. Available for curbside pickup and delivery (AKA, pajamas and pumpkin spice).
TAKEOUT ONLY - 165 E. 900 S., Mon. - Sun. 9:00a - 5:00p.

2. Buds: Chances are, you've passed this quaint little sandwich joint a time or two, and if it weren't for the line of people eagerly awaiting their food, you might have missed it. A true grab-and-go spot, you can order at the window and take your meal to the nearest park (or eat while you walk, no shame in that game). Top sellers include the Buffalo Sub and the Zucchini Choco Chip cookies, but we're also suckers for the Barbacoa Burrito (it's grilled jackfruit, and it's mouth-watering).
TAKEOUT ONLY - 509 E. 300 S. #4001, Mon. - Sat. 11:00a - 5:00p.

3. Big O Doughnuts: With their Central 9th storefront standing proud and covered in sprinkles (apropro), we can attest that both Big O's staff and doughnuts share a sweet nature. A new menu each month allows for seasonal and creative flavors to rotate through the cases (Pumpkin Cheesecake is an October guest), but some fan favorites have earned enough street cred to be permanent offerings (think: Boston Cream and the Maple Bar).
- 248 W. 900 S., Wed. - Sun. 9:00a - 3:00p or until sold out.

4. Zest Kitchen & Bar: If you're searching for some of the freshest food and drink in the vegan valley, Zest is a solid bet. Located downtown, the menu here is 100% vegan, 100% gluten-free, 100% soy-free, and 85% quality isn't in question when you dine here. A few favorites include the pizza, anything with the house-made cashew cheese (the Baked Mushrooms are a win), and some carrot cake to finish things off. Worth noting: Zest is a 21+ establishment, so we recommend grabbing a signature drink (High Zest Whiskey Sour?) to go with your dinner.
TAKEOUT + DINE-IN - 275 S. 200 W., Tues. - Thurs. 12:00p - 9:00p, Fri. 12:00p - 10:00p, Sat. 11:00a - 10:00p, Sun. 10:00a - 8:00p

5. Vegan Bowl: For those lamenting that our vegan options seem to fall within the downtown boundaries only, Vegan Bowl is happy to step in and save the day. Located in West Jordan, this family-owned and -operated restaurant has all the Vietnamese classics you could possibly be craving. Favorites include the Teriyaki "Chickun" Fresh Spring Roll, Lemongrass Tofu Bahn Mi, and the authentic Thai Tea with Boba. More good news: All Chay, located in Rose Park, is their vegan sister restaurant and an equally tasty option.
TAKEOUT ONLY - 8672 S. Redwood Rd., Mon. - Sat. 11:00a - 8:00p

6. City Cakes & Cafe: A long-standing member of our vegan community here in SLC, this sweet place is known for more than just their custom cakes. With a plethora of gluten-free and other allergen-friendly offerings, you're bound to find that which you want (but can't normally have). A true cafe, this one, there are lunch options, coffee, and the expected sweets on hand. Two locations (the other in Draper) have got you covered no matter your starting point, but you can also find City Cakes' famous Peanut Butter Bar at Whole Foods and a few of their cakes at Harmon's. 
TAKEOUT ONLY - 1860 S. 300 W. Ste. D, Mon. - Sat. 8:00a - 8:00p, Sun. 10:00a - 4:00p

7. Mark of the Beastro: Doubling as music venue "The Beehive," you may have visited this vegan diner without even realizing it. Mark of the Beastro (cleverly named for its address) is the perfect place to order some grub-to-go while supporting our local music venues during this tough time. Famous for friendly staff, punk vibes, and Chik'n and Waffles, this place should be seated at the top of your "best breakfast for lunch in SLC" list. 
TAKEOUT ONLY - 666 S. State St., Tues. - Fri. 4:00p - 10:00p, Sat. - Sun. 11:00a - 10:00p
