2. The Bye and Bye 1011 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211 (Ne Portland)

Described as a hipster bar this restaurant serves up Southern style vegetarian dishes. It's open late so it's great for stopping by for a late "healthy" meal. Try out the brussel sprout bowl or the meatball sub—all vegetarian of course.

3. D.C. Vegetarian 430 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97204 (Sw Portland)

This street cart serves up vegetarian and vegan cuisine masquerading as typically meat-heavy American favorites. They've got everything from Philly cheesesteaks to cheeseburgers and chicken salad sandwiches to Italian subs. Seitan, soy curls, and cart-made vegan burger patties put a tasty twist on these classic dishes. Even the traditional breakfast sandwich gets reinvented as the (not)egg & cheese: a tofu patty with avocado and tomato on ciabatta, a guilt-free dream.

4. Blossoming Lotus 1713 NE 15th Ave, Portland, OR 97212 (Ne Portland)

A Hawaiian import, Blossoming Lotus has blazed a trail for vegan fare in Portland over the past decade, serving up local, organic cuisine from salads and mac n cheese to coconut curry and the fan-favorite Live Nachos, which use mostly raw ingredients. The weekend brunch is where it's at: we're talking a giant cinnamon roll, biscuits and gravy, a spinach and mushroom scramble, and a Beet Bloody Maria with beet-infused tequila. Even non-vegans will find themselves coming back for more.
