Delicious Dozen Vegan Eats Not in CA or NY

Vegan restaurants are spreading  inland across the country outside of CA and NY.

When traveling I usually assume I can find vegan restaurants in the coastal metropolitan states like California, the Pacific Northwest, and New York.  At times I am quite sad to have to settle for what ever is available when I am outside of those areas.

But times are a changing!  Here are a few more wonderful vegan restaurants in places you might not expect. It seems as more people choose to eat vegan the market is expanding to fill the need.  And… the creative colorful varieties in food options can blow your mind.  Take your appetite on a road trip!
