There are quite a few Park City restaurants with vegan options, but these are my go-to spots. Whether it’s my turn to pick where we order lunch for a meeting or I’m meeting a friend for dinner and drinks after work, I know that I can trust these places to have delicious choices.
Vessel Kitchen is my favorite restaurant in Park City. They’re a counter-serve cafe with quick, friendly service and awesome, healthy food.
From Vessel Kitchen: We’re committed to providing as many people as possible, as often as possible, with scratch-made, non-processed, delicious food…to make that the new normal.
Their menu changes seasonally and always includes several great vegan options. Vessel Kitchen also has two kombuchas on tap each day as well as beer and wine offerings.
There’s plenty of room to sit inside and during the warm months, you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh Park City air.
Try theMed 5.0—A hearty bowl of falafel, hummus, cashew caesar broccoli, Israeli couscous, pita strips, Israeli salad, spiced tahini, and micro cilantro
A Jamaican restaurant in a ski town? I was surprised, too. 11hauz is the creation of Sheron Grant who comes from a household of 11 in Mount Salem, Jamaica. Sheron has shared her grandmother’s authentic recipes with Park City through 11hauz.
In addition to tasty food, 11hauz also offers beer and homemade drinks like Sorrel (a traditional Jamaican drink made with hibiscus).
The family-run restaurant has lots of vegan items to choose from, all made to order.
Try theJerk Tofu—Tangy, spicy tofu grilled to perfection served with rice and peas, a light cabbage salad, and plaintains when available.
I stumbled upon MOD Pizza one day while looking for a quick lunch option. “Superfast,” said the sign out front. Well, not only was it fast, the staff took pride in their work and the pizza was delicious!
Later, I discovered that MOD Pizza hires people who are often overlooked by employers: those in need of a second chance and those with special needs. Now that’s a business that you can feel good about supporting.
Try the “Create Your Own”—I add red sauce, non-dairy cheese, artichokes, arugula, roasted garlic, green bell peppers, mushrooms, pineapple (😱), diced tomatoes, salt & pepper, with a balsamic fig glaze swirl finish.

I learned about Fairweather Natural Foods a few years ago while looking for a cruelty-free aloe vera gel. At the time, grocery stores didn’t carry much in the way of beauty products that aligned with my values. Fairweather Natural Foods did and still does!
It’s a tiny health food store and cafe tucked away on a side street in Old Town. Inside that tiny store, you’ll find everything from vitamins and makeup to fresh produce and grab-and-go sandwiches.
Try theVegan Chicken Salad Sandwich—A classic chicken salad-style sandwich on soft wheat bread. Add an Everything Cookie for a real treat!

I’ve been frequenting Red Rock—or RR as we call it—for about 10 years now and haven’t been disappointed yet. The menu has changed a lot, but a lot of the staff is the same and it’s always nice to see a friendly face.
First and foremost, Red Rock is a brewery and has tons of beer to choose from. Walk in and take a seat at the bar—no waiting unless the bar is full—for quick service and some appetizers or get a seat at a table for a more traditional dining experience.
The newly-renovated space has an industrial-like design and a casual atmosphere—no need to take off your snow pants before dinner.
Try theSouthwest Garden Burger—Tomato, red leaf lettuce, avocado, and chipotle vinaigrette on a soft kaiser bun. Get the sweet potato fries and swap the garden burger for the Beyond Burger.

What is shabu-shabu, you ask? Encyclopedia Britannica explains that the name is an onomatopoeia for the swirling action of thin strips of beef (or mushrooms) swirling in the broth of a hot pot. The broth contains vegetables that are eaten throughout the meal and noodles are added towards the end to make a noodle soup (at least that’s how I was taught to do it).
I never liked mushrooms growing up and my dad always told me that one day I would wake up and like mushrooms. Yeah right.
A colleague took me to Kuchu Shabu and I was a little disappointed when I saw that the vegan option was a giant bowl of mushrooms. I didn’t want to be difficult, so I ordered it. It turns out that my dad was right. I LOVED the mushrooms!
Kuchu Shabu also has a selection of wine, cocktails, beer, and sake to complete your meal.
Try theMushrooms in Miso Broth—5 varieties of exotic mushrooms in a dark miso broth with vegetables, udon noodles, rice, ponzu sauce, and goma sauce.
Squatters has a special place in my heart, so I’m happy to report that they have some vegan options. It was the first place that I had my first legal drink. I ordered the sampler which contains 6 small beers served on a ski.
Featuring a large variety of traditional pub fare, Squatters definitely has something for everyone—especially beer lovers. Squatters is a brewery and they’ve been doing it since 1989.
The casual environment makes this an ideal spot for breakfast before hitting the slopes or a quick drink with friends after an activity-packed day. Still wearing your sweaty hiking clothes? No problem! Have a seat on the outdoor patio to enjoy your meal.
Try theThai Yellow Curry—A huge bowl of curry with eggplant, shitake mushrooms, lemongrass, Indian lime leaves, ginger, and broccoli. It comes with sticky rice and is especially good if you add the charbroiled tofu.

The Cabin makes the list not because of the vegan options, but because it’s a really cool place that offers a few vegan dishes. They have live music every weekend, trivia nights, karaoke, and a drag brunch every Sunday.
With plenty of fancy drinks including an entire section of the menu dedicated to breakfast shots, this is one spot you can’t skip!
Try theVegan Breakfast Sandwich—It’s always exciting to find menu items that are specifically vegan rather than having to modify something to make it vegan by removing items. This sandwich has plant-based sausage, JUST egg, dairy-free cheese, kimchi aioli, and is served on a warm pita. Yum!
I’m not going to lie and pretend that I’ve tried every restaurant in Park City that has something for vegans. Here are some that, while I haven’t personally tried, I’m comfortable sharing in this post because these spots have Happy Cow’s stamp of approval.
