It can be hard to find good vegan dining when you’re traveling, whether it’s internationally or simply in your own state. In fact, if you live in the North Carolina area and are looking for an awesome restaurant to enjoy with your family, friends or coworkers, it can seem like an impossible task! That’s why I was thrilled to discover Plantiful, which has become my new favorite local vegan restaurant Boone NC. Read this review to find out what they do so well!


The story is about a mom, dad and daughter who are on vacation and want to eat healthy. They google vegan dining and find a restaurant called Plantiful. The daughter falls in love with their menu options, which includes salads Boone NC. She likes that they offer both fruit and veggie salads Boone NC and she decides to order the one made with fruit. She also orders avocado toast for her parents as an appetizer. After eating the salad, she says it tastes just like ice cream!

The Menu

There are a variety of salads to choose from, including the Blueberry Pecan Salad with baby kale, mixed greens, blueberries, pecans and vegan lemon chia vinaigrette; the Vegan Caesar Salad with Romaine lettuce, marinated tofu croutons and vegan caesar dressing; and the Thai Peanut Bowl with quinoa salad (a mix of grains), spinach, carrots and roasted peanuts. Salads are also made-to-order for those looking for customization.

The Atmosphere

When I walked into Plantiful, I felt like I was walking into a new age, hippy-type restaurant. There were bright colors and live plants everywhere. The staff were all super friendly and welcoming, taking the time to chat with me about the menu items and ingredients. You’re seated at your own table which is nice because you have more space for talking with friends or family than you would if it was a high-top table by the bar or something. The menu has an assortment of salads from the classic Cobb salad to one with beetroot, blue cheese and walnuts. There are also plenty of soups, sandwiches and wraps along with smoothies that can be ordered from their self-serve bar or made fresh at your table.

The Service

Their lunch menu has a range of options including salads, sandwiches, wraps and entrees. With many vegan and gluten free options, it’s easy to find something to please every palate.

Their food is fresh and healthy with generous portions at reasonable prices. The salad bar has tons of fresh veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts that are always available for those looking for more than just raw lettuce on their plate. The staff is friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable about all the products they sell.

The Price

The interior is rustic and welcoming. The bar has a great selection of wines and cocktails. The staff is amazing and the food is fabulous! It’s an easy place to eat at with friends, or on a date night. They offer gluten-free options, soy sauce, vegan cheese, healthy salads Boone NC and pizza crusts. I look forward to my next visit to Plantiful!


Plantiful has a variety of salads, wraps, and soups to choose from. They have many vegan options, but they also have plenty of meat and vegetarian choices for those who are not vegan. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great salad or wrap!
