We’re reviving our annual Best of Vegan in San Diego awards in November 2023! 

You trust Vegan in San Diego to bring you all the vegan options across our beautiful county. We show you where we dine, what’s near you, what you don’t want to miss — but we turn to you to name San Diego’s best among the vegan friendly options.

We’re currently busy doing the analysis of which businesses should be considered for which categories! We’ll be asking for community input in October, too. Our goal is to bring you nominations from knowledgeable vegans and have the winners chosen by you.

Check back in during World Vegan Month (November) for open polling!


In the meantime, check out our prior year’s winners and results:
