Good Vegan Food - Edit

Great spot when you need some yummy vegan food.
Today I enjoyed Pho (Friday only) and fresh Summer Rolls. Both were yummy and hit the spot. I had to ask for extra peanut sauce but this was not a problem. Chopsticks were also available by request.
Service was fast, and food was fresh.
I spent $15 for a meal for one.

Pros: Vegan, meat-free kitchen, Personal

Cons: Awkward road and parking

Overpriced not so tasty or healthy vegan food” - Edit

We were on our way to Orlando and stopped in here for a healthy bite to eat but were sorely disappointed This is basically a hole in the wall place which touts healthy food. Yet not much was even organic! The guy at the front was not very friendly. The food took way too long for a "2 go" place. The place is dirty and old looking. I saw them serve others in plastic plates and bowls. The food was not very tasty, neither was there enough quantity. I bought a vegan shrimp dish which was 10.95 and they gave me 5 measly pieces of fried vegan shrimp with a very small raw cabbage salad. My husband got a quinoa salad - which was 9.95 and it was basically a small tub (like a side dish) and it was not at all flavorful. My friend got a curry and rice and his dish was okay - nothing to write home about. I was left hungry with my pockets a little emptier with no great story to tell. Sadly disappointed in this vegan place. Would never go back.

Cons: overpriced, small quantity

Vegan2Go Is EXCELLENT! - Edit

Excellent little restaurant with excellent food! We were very happy to find it - we are strict Vegans and the food is among the best we've had. We were very happy with the food choices, and ended up ordering even more food to go! We now have a great place to stop in Gainesville, FL. Owner very nice and so is the staff.

Pros: Excellent food, Great choices, Great staff

Cons: Wouldn't mind a few more tables to sit at

My Favorite Vegan Restaurant! - Edit

Absolutely love Vegan2Go! The food is incredible and the owners are wonderful. The owners are 100% vegan and all the food is 100% vegan. If you are a student you get a 10% discount!! This discount helps me a lot because I eat at Vegan2Go several times a week. Also, check out their weekly meal plans. Raw and cooked vegan weekly meal packages are offered for those who can't always cook. The packages contain a weeks worth of vegan mains, sides, soups, and some desserts!

I've tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. Highlights: Summer Rolls (served w/ yummy peanut dipping sauce), Philly Sub (bbq TVP on a tasty fresh baked vegan baguette), Specialty Curry Rice (brown rice option makes this dish superb), Heavenly Salad (it is really heavenly), and the best ever RAW cashew cheesecake!

Vegan2Go serves the best food in Gainesville.

UFMarley 19 Oct 2016 - I would highly suggest giving his food another shot. Michael and his staff are absolutely wonderful and the food is delicious. It is in by no means "bland". I love the changes he has made and his soup of the day is always fantastic. The Potato Leek is to die for. He has made some changes but imo they are all positive. He has added new items, his mock chicken salad is excellent and the Philly Cheese Sub is out of this world. Don't even get me started on the desserts he is now offering. I could go on for days how delicious the cupcakes are.

Would definitely order again - Edit

I ordered delivery from this place for my birthday dinner. The drumsticks were super delicious. I also had the curry and rice, raw cheesecake, and green smoothie. I remember thinking that the cheesecake didn't compare to my favourite (from Aux Vivres in Montreal) but it was still pretty good.

Pros: offers delivery, good portions

Cons: a bit pricy

Fabulous Pho - Edit

I love that vegan2go is 100% vegan. I am not a big fan of faux meat foods and there are a few of these in the menu. However, if you go on Friday, treat yourself to the pho because it is fabulous. The summer rolls are fantastic as well. The cheese cakes and other desserts are top notch. Getting to the building from the east involves a left hand u- turn which can be tricky in G'ville traffic. Parking is very limited but for eating in I have never had a problem. Most people get take out.

Excellent fast vegan food - Edit

Quick, friendly service. A wonderful, varied menu. Everything we tried was done really well. As others said, parking is no fun, but it's totally worth it! Wish our town had one of these delightful restaurants.
Updated from previous review on Monday January 12, 2015

Update: We've been here several times and it's consistently excellent. Even the picky kids love it!

Pros: Great menu, Large portions (leftovers!), Friendly service

Cons: Parking

Vegan2Go - Edit

A well-organized tiny facility that caters delicious, fresh vegan food options. The pleasant and hospitable owner, David, will cater to gluten and soy free clients. He offers weekly menus for delivery with three day menus or one day menus available. The facility is clean, with a few tables for sitting and ordering. The main problem is the parking and the difficulty in entering and exiting the parking lot. Otherwise, Vegan2Go in Gainesville, Florida is a 4 star place. Kaye Linden

Good vegan food to go - Edit

We were traveling and found this place with the app. Very friendly people take our order to go. Food is good, and more when you are out of town looking for vegan options. They offer delivery. Is a small place with 3 or 4 tables to eat there.

Pros: Friendly, Vegan/Gluten free options, Delivery option

vegan fast food, but good - Edit

The restaurant has a small interior with a few tables for dining in. They have a lot of things to choose from. Their food is tasty, but not super fancy. It's more like vegan fast food. But it's still delicious! This is my favorite take out place in gainesville.

Pros: varied menu, fast service, takeout

Cons: hard to get to (traffic), plain food

Excellent Food - Edit

I ate at Vegan2Go for the first time yesterday 9/5/14 and was very impressed. I'm a newbie to the vegan lifestyle and the owner was very polite and gave me some info and links to websites/videos to guide me on my journey. The food was delicious and I will definitely be going back real soon. The owner also gave me a 10 percent discount for being a college student, which I greatly appreciated.

Best vegan food in florida - Edit

The food is delicious with a huge selection. The owners are the sweetest people you will ever meet. I am so glad I found it. My husband and I go here 4-5 days a week and never get tired of it.

Pros: excellent food, large menu, friendly staff

Fresh, healthy food - Edit

Very convenient when traveling on I75. The owner was very nice and I appreciate that he's trying to make a difference by offering healthy, cruelty free food. He's also educating people about healthy food. Our food was excellent, the hot food was hot and the cold food cold. We loved it and we'll be back when we are in the area.

Pros: fresh food, good prices, friendly staff

Good food - Edit

The place is not condusive to a sit down meal. There is limited seating options (5 tables seating 10 people).

The menu has mostly an Asain flair, though I did see someone eating vegan pizza. We shared the summer rolls with a peanut sauce. I had the Specialty sub (too much "meat", but I enjoyed and saved some for later). My daughter had the stir fried rice that she really enjoyed. My daughters nonvegan friend had the wonton soup that she also enjoyed. I ordered a Thai tea (too sweet for me), my daughter acai smoothie (it was okay). We shared the pumpkin cheesecake and a chocolate cheesecake. We did not like the pumpkin cheesecake as much as the chocolate cheesecake. I would go here again for a meal to go.

Pros: Good food, reasonable price, friendly owner

Cons: small, fast food decor, small store

Awesome food and super nice people - Edit

Was passing through Gainesville and stopped here with my dad. We enjoyed a great vegan meal. A diverse menu, with everything from Asian to American-style food. The food was outstanding and I would strongly recommend you give it a try. Closed on Tuesday.

Great Vegan Food! - Edit

I am so happy to have found this restaurant right off of I-75! My family lives in Ocala, FL, and I live in Chattanooga, TN, so you can imagine that every trip I take to and from includes a stop at this restaurant. The vegan cheesecake, and the veggies in tamarind sauce with rice noodles are my two favorite dishes. Good Kale chips as well. Great service, great philosophy of the owners as they approach making and sharing their food. If you are vegan, vegetarian, or you just love food, stop here. You won't be disappointed, and you'll probably want to go again. They also give a 10% student discount.

Paradise Right Off Of I-75 in Gainesville - Edit

According to our Happy Cow search, Vegan2Go one of the few vegan restaurant choices in Gainesville (surprisingly). Lucky for Tiffany and myself that we learned about it before heading up to Gainesville over the weekend.

After a quick trip to Trader Joe's to check out the plethora of vegan food options, we were hungry and entered the address for Vegan2Go in our Garmin. Our GPS told us how to get there but Chucky simply doesn't speak "GPS". After getting there an extreme round about way we found ourselves staring at I-75 when we pulled in at 11:00 on a Saturday.

Wow! What a menu and what selections! Sooo difficult so we chose Noodle Combo #1 and Royal Soup to share. Oh yeah... we also grabbed a bag of Hot & Sour sun-dried kale chips (yummy!). Then there was the refrigerated vegan jerky in the cooler calling our names.

As I sat awaiting delivery of our food I could not help but notice the beautiful pictures on the walls of the dishes. Thinking to myself, "No way can the food be this attractive and healthy looking." but I was proven wrong when David delivered our meals to the table. Actually... perhaps I was right because the meals looked even BETTER! :)

Delicious. Healthy. No signs of oily residue. Portions are generous and ample. Both Tiffany and I felt good eating the meals and felt full but not overly stuffed.

Typical Asian noodle dishes lean towards the oily side. Not so for Vegan2Go. The noodles were fine rice noodles with pieces of cabbage and thin strings of carrot. Cooked to perfection (not overly cooked and packed with taste). The skewer was moist, juicy and delicious. Perfectly seasoned. The Summer Roll? Shredded cabbage, strings of carrot, tofu, mung bean and jicama. Umm, umm!

Not to be outdone but the soup was spectacular. Do yourself a favor and visit on a Saturday (the only day it's available). Killer flavor with fresh ingredients. Vegan2Go packs a lot of delectable morsels into the soup and it's plenty to share.

Yes ~ I will be back. Over and over and over again. Cannot wait for Vegan2Go to expand down towards the Orlando area!

It's just off of I-75 on the West side of W Newberry Road. Going North on I-75 get off onto We Newberry and head West. About 1/4 mile on the South side of the street. It's in a tiny plaza (3 businesses) but their sign clearly marks the location.

You will NOT be disappointed. Gainesville... you suckers are a very lucky lot of folks. Sign me envious in Orlando, okay?

Pros: Fresh vegan, Healthy ingredients, Properly cooked (sans fats and oils)

Cons: Not in Orlando area, I forgot to grab some To Go, Cannot make it back quick enough

Delicious! - Edit

Food is delicious and fresh! I'm only in Gainesville infrequently, but let me tell you I WILL be back, just for some of the delicious garden rolls. Best vegan cheesecake I've ever had, as well -- closest thing to NY style you'll find. Well worth the trip!

Pros: wonderful food, good service

Cons: seating too limited

Fantastic Quick Vegan Meal! - Edit

Service A+
Food A+
Location A+
Price A+

I have always wished there was a convienent Vegan eatery off of Interstate 75 between Orlando and the Interstate 10 intersection and my wish has been granted! Unfortunately I commuted from Dothan Alabama to Orlando 2-3 times per month for almost 2 years and the month after my trips cease, Vegan2go opens.

But in a recent random trip to Gainesville I searched HappyCow for a nearby eatery and found this place, so I gave it shot. I was excited to find them just off the interstate. Service was fantastic; friendly and quick. I ordered the Combo #1: BBQ skewer, rice, and spring roll; and it was great! I wish there was a location near my office in Lake Buena Vista, I would be a regular no doubt (hint hint). The BBQ skewer was a meat substitute similar to a fajita steak strips, but on a skewer with sesame seeds and two sauces on the side (Peanut and Sweet/sour). I, probably like most, do not like mock meats for a multitude of reasons. Taste, texture, the "am I really trying to fool myself" mentality, etc. So I just don't eat them. But I still like to try new things and this didn't disappoint. Give it a shot!

Pros: Location, Service, Price/Taste

just perfect. - Edit

I discovered Vegan2go on a road trip that brought my mom, my sister and me through Gainesville. I am the only vegan in the bunch, but they thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered: smoothies and spring rolls (to the point of raving about them every couple of hours when we got back on the road). My sister doesn't like mushrooms, but no one told her they were in there and she was equally impressed. And the smoothies are made with agave and almond milk, SO.... the taste was sweet and light and very fresh.

My curry rice was absolute heaven.... Not spicy, which is good to me because I like a sweeter curry. And the vegetables (sweet potatoes, YUM) and seitan were soft but nowhere near mushy. I ate it in like 2 minutes and then thought about licking the dish.

On the way out, I grabbed a raw brownie and a raw cheesecake slice and ate them on the road. I almost had to pull over because the tastes were so incredible my head almost exploded. The brownie was moist and super chocolatey (but not the kind that makes you wish it was less so) and a teeny bit salty (again, in a GOOD way) and nutty and earthy. It was absolutely delicious. The cheesecake was airy and almost floral and lemony with a delectable coconutty crust. I basically wanted to eat 12 pieces.

To top all of this off, the owner and his wife (the cook!) were genuinely happy, nice, funny, humble and passionate. I want to go here every week. But I live in Chicago. Come to Chicago, Vegan2go!!!! We LOVE you!!!

Pros: yum, great service, amazing desserts

Cons: not in Chicago

They cook with the non-GMO foods, which is a plus for me! Conveniently located off of interstate I 75, the exit for the Gainesville mall. I ordered the Philly sub and vegetable soup, and my husband ordered the curry and brown rice. Everything was outstanding, but if I was forced to pick one, the sub would win. They also prepare weekly meals that you can pick up! I'm going to try it out, and paying shipping costs to delivery to my home, 2 hours away. That's how yummy this food is!

Pros: non gmo foods, variety and vegan dessert, friendly owner

I love vegan2go - Edit

This is the only vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Gainesville. As a vegetarian student going to UF, Vegan2Go is a very nice place to go. I got the noodle combo #2 which comes with mung bean noodles, summer roll, spring roll, and vegan chicken. I loved everything that I ate. I received my food within about five minutes. The owner is very nice and dedicated to providing Gainesville with worry-free vegan food. Dining in is available, however I would not recommend it for a date. It is best to call ahead with your order and pick it up. I recommend vegan2go to vegetarians/vegans and carnivores too!

Pros: excellent food, all-vegan, friendly staff

Cons: small location, no ambiance

Vegan2Go good place for fast vegan food - Edit

I went there with my wife and we were greeted by a friendly man who seemed to be the owner. I think he is Buddhist and runs his place on dharmic principles. We had rice noodles and a summer roll, which was good. If you are a Hindu concerned about ingredients, I believe all the ingredients (and the owner) are sattvic people. Jaya Radhe!

Pros: food , owner, location

Cons: small, no atmosphere

Very friendly - Edit

We went with the family and really liked the owner. The food was low salt, which I liked, and if you like it saltier you may ask for soy sauce. It took about 3 minutes to get our order, so if you are in a hurry or on a lunch break this is the place to go. We tasted many items and especially liked the curry, the spring and summer rolls and the fake chicken drumsticks. Good place and good people.

Pros: Very friendly

what a tasty surprise on a road trip - Edit

I found this restaurant on my way to Orlando and it was such a nice experience. They have a nice selection of tasty dishes and I enjoyed the curry rice and pumpkin soup. The owner was so friendly and geniune and I promised to spread the good word about this place. I will definitely go back when I make this drive in the future. Go Vegan!!

quick and tasty vegan food - Edit

Vegan2Go is Gainesville's only all vegetarian restaurant. The owner is a wonderfully effusive character who is dedicated to providing healthy vegan food and quick service. Located in the former Green Mango, the restaurant has undergone a renovation and looks much cleaner. Unlike Green Mango, there were several staff working when we went there and we were treated really well.

Pros: quick service, vegan only, friendly staff

Cons: location
