Tourists traveling into the city of Brotherly Love often head straight for Center City. There’s great shopping, dining, theaters and historic attractions at every corner, so it makes sense, but with such a walkable city spreading far and wide, beyond downtown, we have a list of vegan restaurants worth heading south for.

While better known for its cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and Italian Market, South Philly is a hidden gem in the vegan community.

The Tasty

Located across Columbus Square, the kids will love the retro-chic diner esthetic with a long lineup of meals you would forget had a healthy twist, like flavorful tofu scrambles and blueberry pancakes. The Tasty made its name on breakfast alone, but the lunches are nothing to scoff at. Try a buffalo “chik’n” sandwich, or stick with an inventive salad.

Grindcore House

If you just want a quick coffee and a sweet snack, Grindcore House is a go-to in the Pennsport neighborhood. The vegan coffeehouse boasts plant-based drinks for sensitive stomaches, healthy sandwiches, baked goods and a variety of rotating treats. Sure, not all sweets are healthy, but you can feel good about stepping out here and there with vegan options.

Vegan Tree

For the fast-food feel without the hefty ingredients, try Vegan Tree. Known for its fast and healthy menu, kids can grab a wrap and take it on the go, or even try vegan noodle dishes and sushi. If you just need a vitamin-enriched jolt, the juices and smoothies should hit the spot.

Boot & Saddle

Boot & Saddle may not be 100 percent vegan, but the menu is just about 50/50. Bring a friend, see a show, grab a drink and chow down on fun bar food for vegans and carnivores alike.

Vegan Commisary

Deep south on Wolf Street, guests of Vegan Commissary find high-brow eats in a low-brow vibe. More like a vegan club, selling ready-made items and offering catering services, customers can grab-and-go with incredible offerings from the market.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
