Veggie St. Pete

We take the guesswork out of finding vegetarian- and veg-friendly dining spots in downtown St. Petersburg

Lonni’s Sandwiches August 10, 2011

Tags: , ,

This popular ‘healthy’ sandwich spot is famous for its generous portions, but mostly famous for its thick, homemade wild rice bread that most of their sandwiches are served on. Good vegan options include the “custom vegetarian” sandwich which has cukes, alfalfa sprouts, onion, lettuce, tomato and black olives with a sprinkling of sunflower seeds; tomato stuffed with wild rice salad; gazpacho; the guacamole & sprouts sandwich; and the Southwest wrap. Lonni’s also has plenty of salad options; feel free to ask them to omit egg or cheese-based dressing. Sandwich/soup, sandwich/salad and soup/salad combos available. Freshly-brewed iced tea (regular, tropical or mango), water and coffee are the beverages of choice.

Catering and delivery available. Open Mon-Fri 9am-3:30pm.

Situated in a classic 1918 Craftsman-Style dwelling, Craftsman House is part gallery, part coffee shop and part cafe. The light cafe menu features easy fare like salads and wraps; the Strawberry Salad, Sunshine Salad and Granny Smith Apple Salad are good vegetarian bets; there is also the Hummus Wrap and Veggie Wrap. Ask for the vegan salad dressings. The tapenade and hummus crudite and cheese globe are good plates for sharing.

Cafe Ten-O-One May 22, 2011

Filed under: Vegetarian Options — beatlebird @ 6:10 pm
Tags: , , ,

Cafe Ten-o-One is about as close to traditional diner food as downtown St Pete might come: after all, these are the same folks who one once operated the storied H&D Cafeteria in the old Northeast Shopping Center back in the 1950s and 1960s. Of course, burgers, fried  chicken, patty melts and salisbury steak are king here, but the Cafe has graciously added vegetarian offerings to its lunch and dinner menus. You’ll find a veggie wrap, veggie burger (with all fixings available), vegetarian quesadilla, and loaded potato skins (ask them to omit the bacon). Of course there is a variety of soups, salads (also ask if the taco salad can be made without taco meat) and french fries (cheese or no cheese); tater tots, and black beans and rice.

Beer and wine available. Catering and lunch delivery offered. Breakfast served daily.

Hours: M-F Serving Breakfast 7:30am-10:30am
Sat & Sun Serving Breakfast 8:00am – 2:00pm
Lunch Served Daily from 11:00am – 2:00pm

Relying heavily on a lineup full of meat and seafood, there simply isn’t much in the way of vegan options, but vegetarians could select from the 400 Beach salad, Tap House Caesar salad, and a variety of side dishes including stir-fried veggies, creamed spinach, and new potato hash. Full bar and indoor and outdoor seating available along picturesque Beach Drive (especially charming at night).

Angie’s is in a tiny little blue hut just outside the entrance to Jannus Live, the music venue in Jannus Landing. There is also a new seating section in an air-conditioned annex. Eat in, or take meals away from this Greek spot. Features some vegetarian options such as falafel, grilled cheese sandwiches, fried mushrooms and Greek salads. Vegan options are hummus with pita.
