Vegan and Vine: Where greens meet gourmet

More from this show

At Vegan and Vine, a cherished local eatery owned by the Ramella family, the world of vegan dining is elevated to new heights. Serving an enticing all-day menu that includes breakfast classics, sumptuous lunches, dinners, and delectable sweet treats, they’ve crafted a haven for plant-based cuisine enthusiasts.

Noteworthy dishes such as biscuits and gravy, plant-based cheeseburgers, and buffalo cauliflower wings, along with an exclusive selection of vegan wines, make Vegan and Vine a culinary landmark. The establishment encourages even non-vegans to delve into familiar favorites, like their renowned cheeseburger, to discover the plant-based difference.

“Check, Please! Arizona” guest Yvonne Massman ordered the cauliflower buffalo wings and shared her delight, saying, “It’s really, really good,” marking it as her favorite dish. Cynthia Smith, another guest, chose the chef’s salad, which she described as “delicious, nice and crunchy,” particularly enjoying the vegan ranch dressing’s unique flavor. Meanwhile, another guest, Peteris Matthews, a self-described carnivore ordered a margherita topped with vegan cheese. Matthews described it as, “The cheese was fantastic and really melting,” and he praised the sauce for its robust flavor, noting that it “had a lot of flavor” and altered his viewpoint on vegan cuisine.

Massman offers a pro tip for prospective visitors: aim for off-peak dining times to avoid the rush and ensure a more intimate and enjoyable experience at Vegan and Vine. This strategy allows guests to fully savor the innovative and flavorful plant-based meals that have made Vegan and Vine a beloved spot among locals and visitors alike.
