Nostimo Mediterranean Café

Nostimo Café offers a wide variety of options for vegans and vegetarians. With a list that spans from spinach pie to falafel gyro’s, Nostimo does its best to give customers a Mediterranean taste. Patrons over the age of 21 are allowed to bring their own beer or wine. Glasses and corkscrews are provided.

Julia Reino, Nostimo server, said the destination is frequented for its vegetarian and vegan dining options.

“A lot of people come for (the vegan and vegetarian) choices we have, but we don’t get many students; it’s usually an older crowd,” Reino said. “We definitely want more students to try us out.”

Nostimo Café is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays. Sunday’s they are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Torchy’s Tacos

Torchy’s Tacos offers meals with a bright green “V” next to its vegetarian options. Although there are not any vegan tacos on the menu, some of their ingredients are vegan.

The pico de gallo, escabeche carrots, avocado, black beans and guacamole without garnish are all vegan. All it takes is a request for no cheese and no margarine on the grill when cooking corn tortillas.

The eatery is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.

Buzz Mill

Buzz Mill splits their menu in half: hunters and gatherers. Everything on the gatherers menu is completely plant based.

Sarah Latiolais, Buzz Mill manager, said the restaurant carries seven different vegan beyond-meat burgers, vegan breakfast tacos, vegan shrimp tacos and vegan wings.

Latiolais said Buzz Mill attracts a lot of people who are curious about their beyond-meat burgers, and even non-vegans tend to enjoy them.

“Our plant-based patties are usually better than other vegan options around town, so I think that’s a big draw for a lot of customers,” Latiolais said.

Buzz Mill is open 24 hours.

AquaBrew

AquaBrew is a brewery and beer garden that serves modern American cuisine. Their menu does not offer many vegan options, but vegetarian options are varied and cover pub snacks, brunch and garden options.

Damien Cavazos, AquaBrew executive chef, said their current menu of vegetarian options are pretty popular items.

“We’re working on making an actual vegan and vegetarian menu that we plan to roll out soon” Cavazos said. “Anytime someone asks ‘can you make this vegetarian?’ we like trying to come up with alternatives to give them, with side options and everything.”

AquaBrew is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday, Friday and Sunday. On Saturday, the restaurant is open 10 a.m. to midnight.
