We love the Ashland Food Co-op!
My husband and I shop here fairly often despite living 45 minutes away! I can get all sorts of specialty items at the co-op that is hard for me to find in other parts of the valley. I love that all of the produce is organic and a lot of it is local. They have a great deli section with quite a few veg friendly options. All labeled and easy to figure out. I almost always make a bee-line to the vegan baked items because they're so yummy, but they make pretty tasty main dishes, salads and side dishes too. Love this place!

Good food and specialty drinks!
Blondies' Bistro is a good option if you find yourself in downtown Grants Pass and you want something just a bit different. They have a "Healthy Options" menu with all vegetarian or vegan options clearly marked and some of the regular menu items can be customized as well. I've eaten at this restaurant several times now and have always had good experiences. The food is fresh, well made and healthy. The staff is helpful and attentive. And the restaurant is clean, hip and contemporary. Also, Blondies' specializes in cocktails and "adult beverage" creations if that's your thing.

I loved Herbivore!
Yum, yum, yum! My husband and I went out of our way to eat here and I was thrilled that we did. The food was very good! We even stayed for desert...brownies with coconut ice cream :o) My only complaint is that the service was not all that great. We had two people waiting on us, one was nice enough, the other wasn't so much. Too bad because otherwise it would have been a great total package experience.

Worth a second visit...?
My husband had the burger and I had the falafel. His was very good! Mine was okay. I really wanted to love Source, but found my experience uneventful. The food was good in a reliable sort of way. The restaurant lacked warmth and was a bit cold and hard feeling on the inside. The staff however, were very friendly and helpful. I think I will need to go back to form a firmer impression of this place. I left with mixed feelings.

In love with the Cornbread Cafe!
My husband and I have driven from Rogue River to Eugene (little over two hour drive) just to eat at the Cornbread Cafe...not once, not twice, but three times! We love it that much. The folks are friendly, the restaurant is funky and fun and the food is so good. I'm in love with the chicken fried tempeh with cashew gravy! But, I have so many more things I want to try. I guess another trip is in order :o) Keep up the awesome job CBC!
P.S. I think the prices are reasonable for the amount and quality of the food. That's my two cents :o)

Good food, but too much faux meat...
I really wanted to love Golden Era and for the most part I did enjoy my experience. However, I felt like they served too much soy/faux meat and found that to be distracting. Personally, I don't really care for or find a need for fake meat and it was in most of their dishes. Despite that though, the food was fresh, the service fast and the price was right. The appetizers were very good and could have made a meal of them in of themselves. I may not have fallen in love with Golden Era, but I did like it a lot and will go back.

It's always refreshing for me to be able to go into a restaurant and be able to pick out the veg options right away. I love that they have everything marked (the vegan/dairy free options have happy faces next to them).
The restaurant is very clean and the owner (also our waitress) was super friendly. She was quick to explain dishes and answer questions knowledgably. I felt very confident ordering here.
I'm new to Indian cusine, but thought the food was fresh and was homemade. It was served hot and quickly as well. I will be back!

It's good to have options!
I have eaten here before with mixed reviews (meh to yum!) and was hoping for a good experience today as it's one of the few places in town where I can get veg food that's clearly marked as such.
My husband ordered the BBQ tofu sandwich and I had the veggie sandwich. Both were really well prepared, fresh and very good! The service was fast, but a bit unfriendly. None of the staff really smiled or seemed to enjoy being there which was disappointing. Also, we both had the side of veggie sticks and hummus, but noticed that the veggie sticks weren't very fresh (like they'd been cut up the day before and stored in the fridge).
All in all the experience was good. My meat eating husband loved his sandwich so much that he's going to try and recreate it at home. Yay for me!

Solid place for a great vegan meal!
Pangea is my go to place in Ashland for a yummy lunch. The staff are very friendly, the food is fresh and healthy, and the atmosphere is good. I love the wraps and soup! If something isn't vegan, just ask and the staff can customize your meal. I've even had them tell me (based on what else I'm ordering) that something isn't vegan and they've suggested how they can change it. Love it!

Food Gem in Grants Pass!
Pongsri's is my go to restaurant in Grants Pass. I am always guaranteed an excellent veg meal here. The menu has a separate section of the menu for vegan/vegetarian options and the waitstaff have no problem customizing dishes. That said, I would not recommend going if it is busy (such as a Friday night). We waited a very long time to be served and it wasn't the usual pleasant experience. However, lesson learned...and I don't hesitate to recommend this restaurant for a delicious meal!

We really like eating at Shinsei. It's in the middle of Medford, so it's easy to get to and close to shopping. They are friendly and quick to run to the kitchen and ask about vegan items for me. The food is fresh, fast, and well priced. They have a small list of vegetarian sushi rolls and other options that can be customized if they aren't already vegan. In addition, the restaurant space is clean, modern, and hip.

Awesome, authentic Thai!
Sunflower Thai doesn't look like much from the outside and is a bit of a "hole in the wall" restaurant. But then again, I've always had pretty great luck with little mom and pop places like this one, so I was happy to try it out. My husband and I stopped in here on a Sunday for lunch (there aren't many places open in Grants Pass on Sunday) and we were delighted! The restaurant is large, the decor is a bit funky, but it's clean and the people are friendly. The menu offers tofu with many of the dishes, but items are not specifically marked vegan or vegetarian. I made sure to ask and the waitress seemed happy to help me. The food was delicious and well priced (easily as cheap as eating out at a fast food restaurant). Each dish came with rice and a spring roll. It was all good! This place is worth checking out and I will be back!

Love this place!
I love Thai Bistro :o) I work in Medford and we eat here for lunch regularly. For the most part, you can simply pick a dish from the menu and ask to have it made vegan style and they will alter the recipe (if needed) to be veg friendly.
The restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad experience. The food is always fresh and made when you order it.
They also have a very good buffet, but the veg options are not well marked and you will have to ask about the dishes. However, when I have done this, the staff is really great about finding out for me (even going into the kitchen to ask the chef what is in the dish if they don't know).

Great option in Central Point!
My husband and I stopped into Thai Garden for lunch the other day after being referred there by a friend of mine. The restaurant is small, but clean and cozy. We seated ourselves and were quickly waited on by a friendly lady, that I assume was the/an owner. She was helpful and quick to let me know that my option was vegan when I asked. We didn't wait long for our lunches to arrive and were happy with the quality of the food and the freshness. Each meal came with the entree, rice (your choice of brown or white) and a spring roll with dipping sauce. All at a very resonable price. We noticed that the restaurant does a brisk business at lunch time and I would recommend take out if you aren't at a table by 12:05 pm. All in all, I enjoyed the experience and the fact that I now have a veg-friendly option in a town where there are very few. We will be back!

Fresh, healthy, fabulous!
I am truly blessed to have this wonderful restaurant in my small town! The owner/chef (a former vegetarian) has made it a priority to have veg options on the menu and will customize dishes to any diet. All the food is made fresh with local ingredients whenever possible (they even have a little garden out back) and is made from scratch. You can't go wrong with anything you order from the menu...it's all delicious!

Great place in Central Point!
Zen Zen is a great little sushi place in downtown Central Point. We eat here fairly regularly. The menu has the vegetarian/vegan rolls marked as such and while they don't have a lot of them (maybe 6 to 8 rolls), the ones I've had were very good. Their tempura batter is vegan, so I've enjoyed the Vegetable Tempura and they make an excellent tofu stirfry. The staff has always been friendly and I often see the owners running the place.
