Vegan Flagstaff: What We Ate
What does vegan Flagstaff have to offer? Lots! And we're happy to report that all of these spots are alive and well as of Spring 2021.
Do you like Thai fusion, sushi, pizza and Cornish pasties? Then vegan Flagstaff has you covered! Keep reading to see details about each of these options.
Red Curry Vegan Kitchen
The first restaurant we hit up was Red Curry Vegan Kitchen. And it has turned out to be our favorite here in Flagstaff. We've now been here a few times.
Kevin's goto dish is the mussamun curry.
I like to work my way around the menu. I've had the spicy lemongrass soup with steamed tofu which was delicious.
And I've also tried the Pad Se Lew (stir-fried flat rice noodles with tofu and broccoli with sweet black soy sauce.)
I've also had the Pineapple Red Curry but didn't grab a photo. Everything we've tried here has been great.
The meals come with a light salad. And for each dish you get to pick your protein: tofu (fried or steamed), black beans, kidney beans, or tempeh for $1 extra.)

Vegan sushi rolls that aren’t just avocado or cucumber maki? Sign us up!
Karma Sushi isn’t all vegan but their options were delicious. Many of the items marked vegetarian can also be vegan. Our server was able to tell us exactly what was vegan.
Veggie Spring Rolls
Spicy Tofu Teriyaki
Sweet inari tofu, cucumber, roasted red pepper, avocado, rolled in sesame paper, topped with sweet sauce
Lotus Roll - Tempura asparagus, mango, avocado, topped with fresh cucumbers, citrus ponzu
We really enjoyed this food and if you get there for Happy Hour 3–6 pm, Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday, you can get a deal on the edamame and veggie spring rolls which are vegan.
Cornish Pasty Co.
When you see a place has vegan Cornish pasties, you’ve gotta go try that, right?
Cornish Pasty Co. has several vegan pasties on the regular menu plus they rotate specials daily - ask your server!
I got the Greek (Spinach, vegan mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, artichokes and garlic with tahini.)
Kevin got the Cubano (House Mojo jackfruit, vegan ham, vegan cheese, dill pickles, and yellow mustard. Served with spicy mustard or extra yellow mustard.) Both were really good.
They had some vegan options that were also more traditional in flavor. But most heavily featured mushrooms and we weren’t feelin’ them that day.
We also share a basket of their baked fries which were amazing!
It’s a small chain so if you see one around you should give them a try. It’s another great place to go with a group.
Vegan pizza is getting easier and easier to find these days, but at Pizza Patio half the menu is vegan! Literally. The whole back side of the menu.
Pizza Patio has loads of vegan meat and cheese options. To make our best run at trying them all, we got The Lumberjack: Buffalo Mozzarella, Homemade Marinara, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Bacon, and arugula.
We opted for the thin crust but next visit we had to try deep dish because Holy Moly look at this thing!
The cookie pie thing was also delicious.

Now, in 2021, we found EVEN MORE options! In addition to revisiting the restaurants above, we tried some new vegan options in Flagstaff.
Morning Glory Cafe
Last time we were in Flagstaff, Morning Glory Cafe was vegetarian. It's since gone all vegan! (Well, they do carry a kombucha that contains honey but that is spelled out on the menu.)
Morning Glory Cafe is a breakfast/lunch spot and has been around since 1985! We popped in for lunch one day while our RVs windshield was being replaced.
Kevin ordered Quesadillas and the Breakfast Burro with a side of sausage. Inside the burro was tofu scramble and pintos.
I got the Deluxe Hemp Burger. It includes tempeh, avocado and pesto veganaise in addition to the regular toppings. The burger was delicious! It was crispy on the outside similar to a falafel. And it was really filling!
Java Juice Cafe
We tried to go to Java Cafe on a previous visit to Flagstaff because they had vegan crepes. But every time we went they couldn't make the crepes.
Now, Java Cafe is almost 100% vegan! They've added a whole menu of savory items in addition to smoothies and ice creams. Yes, they have vegan soft and hard serve ice cream here!
We weren't ready for a meal, so we each got ice cream. I got a scoop of the taro ice cream with oats and chocolate chips in a cup.
Kevin got the JJC Sundae which was a chocolate soft serve base with bananas, whip cream and nuts on top. Sometimes chocolate soft serve is a bit weak but theirs had a nice rich chocolate flavor.
Can't wait to go back with an appetite and try one of their savory crepes!
Eating vegan in Flagstaff was so easy! We'd love to hear if you tried any of these vegan options or found some others we need to know about.
