Serves meat, vegan options available. Can make many dishes vegan by not adding cheese or meat. One of the items on the menu is Doreen's Vegan Pizza. Has a small wood-fired oven. St. Michael's is a small, busy tourist town and this is the only place in town that has the word "Vegan" on the menu. NOTE: Order service is reported to be unreliable. Open Mon-Thu 11:30am-9:30pm, Fri-Sat 11:30am-10:00pm, Sun 11:30am-9:30pm. Kitchen closes at 9:30 pm

Great pizza dough/crust

I have always loved the Ava’s pizza crust. But it seems they will never create a vegan pizza sauce for it. They used to have a rotating seasonal vegan pizza but now it’s just something I ask for off the menu. The toppings are great. But the flavor is missing. I always just want a little more from my pizza for the price. It’s pretty much a Mediterranean pizza without cheese/sauce and I think it’s just as much, if not more money. And there is less on it. The beignets are great though. I’ll ways go to Ava’s but I can’t give it more than a 2/5.

Some vegan options

They no longer have a specific vegan pizza on the menu but you can easily order one without the cheese. I’ve done that many times and it’s excellent. They have a quinoa bowl that’s vegan. Pricey at $20 but tasty. Fries and homemade potato chips can’t be beat. Love them with Old Bay seasoning. Nice wine and beer selection.

Good vegan pizza

They have one vegan option at their restaurant and that is the 'seasonal veggie pizza'. It is not labeled vegan, we had to ask. The toppings we had were a sundried tomato base, summer squash, onion, carrot, and roasted garlic. It was just fine!

Pros: Vegan option in St Michaels

Cons: Only 1 option

I'm a fan of Ava's Pizzeria

St. Michaels, MD has been my second home for over 30 years, and I was thrilled when Ava's opened a few years ago. I have eaten there numerous times and the food is always excellent. Although I am not a Vegan, their Vegan Pizza is my go-to order. I love it. They have other great vegetarian pizzas, including the Onion Tart, and also soups and pastas. Fantastic beer and wine selection. The interior is very casual, nothing super-special, but cozy. ALWAYS busy -- even during the week, which shows you how popular Ava's is, given that St Michaels is a small town when the tourists clear out on Sunday night!

Pros: excellent food, fantastic beers, great wines

Cons: somewhat sterile interior, hard to get a table
