Southern Sweets – Another bakery with great vegan dessert and lunch options.
Thinking Man Tavern – Lots of veggie options that can be made vegan.

Candler Park/Little 5 Points
El Myr – Vegan-friendly tacos and burritos. Just omit the cheese and sour cream (and maybe bring your own vegan condiments too).
Radial – Sustainable, lots of vegan options in Candler Park. So, so yummy. Now open for dinner too!
Wrecking Bar – A little bummed that they have discontinued their Seitan Veggie Gyro. But they still have a fabulous veggie plate and they can alter to make sure it’s vegan.

World Peace Cafe – Sandy Springs, Ga. A peaceful oasis with award-winning vegan/vegetarian food.
Fuego Mundo – Located just inside the Perimeter, Fuego Mundo features an extremely vegan friendly menu. Tons of items to choose from. It’s also kosher-friendly.
Veg Friendly Chains in/Around Atlanta
Mellow Mushroom – most locations have Daiya, and can make the crust without the Parmesan/butter wash to make the crust vegan.
Doc Chey’s – Noodle and rice bowls. Also a favored lunch place every day of my senior year of high school, resulting in me gaining the freshman 15 a year early.
This is probably just the tip of the iceberg. Drive down Buford Highway and you’ll be met with a plethora of international cuisine – Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Mexican, South American, Ethiopian, and on and on. Some are more vegan-friendly than others, but some of the fun is in the exploration!
