About this app

Discover the best vegan-friendly restaurants in your area with vanilla bean! Download now and stay fit and healthy wherever you are! Well-known from Huffington Post, Paul McCartney’s Meat Free Monday and PETA. Find unique health- and sustainability-related information about every venue. Is it vegan? Is it local, fair-trade and organic, or raw, lactose- and gluten-free? vanilla bean offers the widest selection of US 🇺🇸, UK 🇬🇧, and German 🇩🇪 locations for anyone who eats consciously but does not want to miss out on anything.

Whether you are in L.A., New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami or Washington D.C.—vanilla bean knows which places will make you happy: anything from gourmet venues to snack bars, from Chinese raw food temples in secret side alleys to this amazing Italian place where handmade gluten-free Bruschetta is soaked in olive oil.

If you are traveling in Austria 🇦🇹, Switzerland🇨🇭 or France 🇫🇷, vanilla bean has you covered, too. The guide includes cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Vienna, Zurich, London, and Paris.

With self-explanatory indicators for each venue, you can immediately spot what each location has to offer. The chosen photos and detailed descriptions, including reviews from the community, will help you decide which place to visit. Information such as addresses, opening times, and telephone numbers are constantly reviewed.


NEW! Have you spotted a venue with plant-based options that is not yet in the app? You can suggest a new venue in less than 20 seconds. Thanks to automatic suggestions of places around you, sometimes you even don’t have to type a word.
★ Filter according to your criteria and to price categories. For example, let vanilla bean show you only completely plant-based venues with gluten-free options using organic ingredients.
★ Through the map, you can easily find all the green location highlights in your city. You can tell at first glance which places offer completely plant-based options, where one can find vegetarian options and where meat dishes are served.
★ Your opinion, your personal experience counts: add your personal review and photos of the venue or the menu. If you like, you can share your newly discovered places with others on Facebook.
★ Search for ZIP codes, places and specific locations, or discover venues with mouthwatering treats near you.
★ You can find a wide range of information about all the entries. Photos, in-depth descriptions, restaurant indicators, directions, and calls directly from the app. In addition, you can find links to the restaurant’s website and Facebook page.
★ All the information is regularly reviewed. Should you still find any obscurities, then please feel free to send us feedback directly via a restaurant’s app entry. We will make the adjustment as soon as possible.

vanilla bean is an app for vegans, vegetarians, and everybody who wants to reduce meat. Whatever your motivation—health, climate change, compassion for animals—switching to plant-based meals is a healthier, more sustainable way of living. And with vanilla bean, it’s also easy and delish.

First time using this, I soon knew it was not well thought out. When I tapped map, it showed the ENTIRE COUNTRY of Spain instead of a window reasonably nearby. After zooming in, it showed only the currently pinned location with no easy way to scroll through others (they should learn from the Airbnb or HappyCow apps how this should be done). The list view didn't show distances -- who wants to tap each entry to find how far it is? The UI for filtering was a bit better than HappyCow.

wonderful app for finding vegan places when I'm traveling, or even new places close to home that I didn't realize had vegan options. Some places maybe need to be updated but overall I found this app to be essential in any city that I'm not too familiar with. I recommend this app to others who travel.

I'm currently in Switzerland and there is no filter for locations, e.g. if I'm looking for a restaurant in Zurich, places in Aarau show up which is useless. I expect to be shown options for where I am, not based on distance or whatever this is based on. Also it would be helpful if I could filter by cuisine. Unfortunately: good idea, poor execution. Better luck next time
