Los Angeles is vegan heaven. I honestly don't think any other city (and I will dominate you NYC) can hold a candle to LA Vegan Fun. If you love to drive and sit in traffic you can have one amazing vegan gluttonous adventure here if you don't choke and die on the pollution.

Must visits.

Real Food Daily in Santa Monica or West Hollywood (both have an amazing Sunday Brunch)
Native Foods in Westwood
M Cafe in Culver City, West Hollywood or Beverly Hills
Pure Luck & Scoops in Silver Lake
Flore in Silver Lake
Fatty's and Co. in Eagle Rock
Madelines Bistro in Encino
Veggie Grill in El Segundo & Sunset
Seed in Venice
Follow Your Heart in the Valley (home of the famous vegan cheese)
Baby Cakes Vegan Bakery In Downtown
Cruser Pizza (one location is 100% vegan - you can order in next door at the Desert Rose)

Those are our rock stars. Of course we have about 100 vegan Thai restaurants. Every city in America has Thai restaurants and Indian restaurants that are vegan friendly, just saying...

Rare Vegan Adventures
Shojin in Little Tokyo Downtown (Japanese traditional food 100% vegan)
Garden Wok in Encino (Chinese Vegan food dim sum)

Late Night Vegan Eats
LA goes beddy bye early folks. A lot of places stop seating people at 9pm-9:30pm
Swingers in Santa Monica and West Hollywood 2am stop seating.
The Waffle in West Hollywood 2am weekdays 4am weekends
Toi on Sunset 3am all nights.
