Let’s be real—COVID-19 is a chaotic and anxiety-inducing time for all. Right now, it’s the little things creating a sense of normalcy that are keeping the world going. In celebration of National Vegan Day on April 20th, here are Philly’s go-to vegan eateries, open for pick up and takeout, committed to feeding and keeping their communities healthy through it all.
Diner classics meet 100% vegan ingredients at Philly’s ultimate breakfast spot, here with dedicated service even through quarantine. Though closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for some well-deserved rest, The Tasty is open for pickup 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. the rest of the week. Bring your favorite dishes home, like their lemon ricotta french toast or nacho burrito. 1401 S. 12th St., 267.457.5670, thetastyphilly.com
From breakfast to burgers to frozen treats, HipCityVeg has every time of your WFH day covered.
