HappyCow Find Vegan Food Reviews

The McMoulds

The Farm Cafe, Keene, NH  The McMoulds  5 star

Outstanding mission and food to match. My “Orchard Melt” sandwich of organic apples, Cabot Cheddar, honey and crushed pretzel on grilled whole grain raisin bread was quite possibly the most delicious sandwich ever eaten, and I’m Medicare eligible age! Bravo! Stop here.


Cool concept but..  Luna1437  3 star

There are tons of places with vegan options around me that are not on the app. The app is showing me that I live in a dead zone for vegan options, which is kind of true but the app is still missing a lot.

Very cool!  Tink 185  5 star

Awesome! My mom and I recently became vegan eaters and this app is sooo helpful on options eating out. What otherwise can be daunting has became fun!

Vegan grandmom

The best site for vegans on the road!  Vegan grandmom  5 star

I am on the site now, looking for place to eat in Queens. Our family always counts on Happy Cow to provide great options when we travel near or far.


Perfect for Vegans/vegetarians who want to explore food in the area  Tcinc5  5 star

Been vegan for month and this app has been the best!


Chef Jonny “NoBones” Rawlicious  kabbalahsky  5 star

HappyCow is the Sunflower sprout of Vegan Apps...Every day I feel the life energy of such amazing beings coming to taste the fruits of the earth. Hugs and love walk in the door and join me for an adventure in Raw Vegan Cuisine......I am ready to stop asking “How did you hear about us” because the answer is almost always HappyCow....thank you Eric and the entire staff at HappyCow you are fabulous


Love this app!  Kasia1234556775443  5 star

Very easy to use and love seeing reviews from fellow vegans.


Go to restaurant  ChaseingFoods  5 star

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area! I could eat here everyday if my wallet allowed. They have so many vegan options you will never get tired of their menu and their juice bar is fantastic. Although it is a pricey restaurant.


The Food is excellent!  Spike&midnight  5 star

You must try the veggie Black Bean Burger!! The Bun melts in your mouth literally ! It’s so soft and the black bean patty tastes very fresh compared to other restaurants that use too much grease. They have Vegan mayonnaise just make sure you ask for it. If you’re vegetarian try the corn bread !! The only thing I wish this restaurant had is some ambience/ background music to give it more of a restaurant feel.. Also it’s not open on certain days. Don’t sleep on it !

Ushcjfjeja fields

“Search” function doesn’t work  Ushcjfjeja fields  5 star

Love this app but the Keywords feature doesn’t work at all... I’ve tried searching specific vegan restaurants within my area and the app won’t give me any search results. Happy Cow, please fix this! EDIT: the search function does work! Thanks to the happy cow team! They’re always so helpful & nice 💗


Travel essential  Milnesco  5 star

I travel nationally and internationally often to new locations. Without Happy Cow it would be so much harder, I have tried every app and always come back to Happy Cow. I try to make a habit of reviewing and adding new options to the app as I come across them. Not only can I find a vegan or vegetarian option nearby, I can see if it’s open in the fog of jet lag, and the reviews also point me to the best option. I love this app and would give it more stars if I could.


Life changing :)  Qi77  5 star

This app is an absolute must for any vegan / Vegetarian or just the health conscious. Have discovered so much amazing food and new friends thanks to Happy Cow.


A life saver!  Mel_Mou  5 star

I recently travelled to Japan. Many people I knew who had been there warned me that it was nearly impossible to be vegan, or even vegetarian. Those people clearly didn’t have Happy Cow. It took a bit more effort to find places and I probably didn’t have the “authentic Japanese food experience”. However, I was surprised at how many vegan restaurants there were around. I got to try some beautiful plant based food, and experience the vegan movement in a different culture. This app made my holiday so much easier and created some wonderful eating memories I will never forget. Thank you!


Makes travel as a vegan stress free  MrMcBlaster  5 star

This app has been a life saver travelling across Japan. As some of you probably know it can be very time consuming trying to hunt down vegan food in foreign countries, throw in that madness they call kanji and you’ve got yourself a real struggle on your hands to stay fed. Every place I’ve tried on the app has been where it says, open when it says, and serving what it says. Well done to whatever genius made this app happen, you’ve made this holiday so much better for us. I’ll use this app everywhere I go for the rest of my life. To a non-vegan it may seem a simple thing to eat abroad but as vegans we can waste a lot of valuable holiday time reading endless menus.....not any more!! Thank you!

The Loving Vegan

Shouldn’t have purchased this app  The Loving Vegan  1 star

Not helpful at all. Not user friendly.


Very useful app  carlyjane69  5 star

So handy to have to look up vegetarian and vegan food while traveling. A total must have!


Love it!  Idemet  5 star

Travel for business regularly. App works very well in all locations. Map function is effective. Thanks!


LOVE THIS APP  Elizaval  5 star

Great for research before you visit a place. I found it extremely helpful.

Hannah Shania

Awesome app  Hannah Shania  5 star

This is perfect comes up with vegan restaurants and also restaurants that have vegan options. It also has vegetarian options. And it works worldwide 🌱 this'll come in handy when I go overseas! I'd recommend this app 100% for travel and local.


Constantly crashes  Hahahahashshsjxhxis  1 star

I can't even search nearby restaurants without this app crashing on me. I really want to use it for my upcoming trip for Japan but I can't even search any restaurants without the app just closing when I hit search.. Very disappointing considering I paid $6 for this app and can't even use it


Total time saver!  Envirochix96  5 star

I love this app. It saves so much time bc you don’t have to check out all the menus of nearby places to see if they offer vegan items!


Awesome  m0.0nster  5 star

I am a new vegan and this app is incredible. It makes it so easy to find veg options when I’m going out to eat with non-vegans, and it’s helped me discover all the completely vegan restaurants and food trucks we have here in Austin! Thanks to That Vegan Couple for talking about this app and helping vegans and vegetarians realize that there’s always more options than you think.


DO NOT BUY  _brandieee  1 star

If you're capable of opening safari and typing "vegan places near me" then you don't need this app. When I use it, it shows SOME (not all) places with vegan options near me and doesn't even tell you what the vegan options are at that place. This is a complete waste and I'm shocked it has good reviews but I guess people have never heard of Google.

Alijah Simon

Wow! Unexpectedly great!  Alijah Simon  5 star

iPad app and everything! Nailed all the locations in Buffalo. I thought I’d buy this and return it, but I’m definitely keeping it. Very great.


Love the app but not accurate  Splacito22  3 star

I use this app all the time but it is not accurate as far as what is in the area. I know of places that have vegan options but they are not listed in the location.


Best App Ever!  Disgruntleduser101  5 star

I don’t know how I went 9 vegan years without this fantastic app. No matter where I’ve travelled since I got it they gave me covered. It’s invaluable. Just get it!!

Laney poopoo

Happy Cow = Happy Vegan’s  Laney poopoo  5 star

Love this app, so helpful in finding food for my vegan children!


App Won't Stop Crashing  TiffasaurusRexx  2 star

Every time I go to open the app, it crashes on the load screen. Every. Single. Time. I have no other tasks running and I'm only using 20 gigs of storage. This is definitely an app issue and not a phone issue.


It’s the worst  01614593  1 star

Not worth MONEY it doesnt help at all


If you travel you need this App!  WBLVegan  4 star

New Vegan here, and wanting to find new exciting spots when I travel for work. I got this app a week or two before I went to Chicago and used it to plan and save my eating adventures! I read others reviews and was not disappointed. I would give it an extra star if it included spots like Chipotle, and others that will help a Vegan out!


Please keep updating people!  Ruby.R3D  5 star

Love this app but we have to contribute to make it amazing! Recently returned to my hometown and there soooo many more places with vegan options that aren't on happy cow


Happy cow = happy human!  171092  5 star

This app is so helpful while touring! I probably use this app the most out of all of mine. Instead of it being difficult to find somewhere to eat, it makes it so easy & makes me so excited to try new places! (:

Niamh Chinn Óir

Great app!  Niamh Chinn Óir  5 star

Absolutely fantastic app! Covers all the basics and more! Uses location service to find vegan take outs, restaurants, shops and more! Makes finding everything to live a happy cruelty free life so easy and convenient.


Great vegan app  berry-baby  4 star

Perfect for finding vegan and veggie spots in new cities. Very useful app


Useful for traveling  Nastyaxxx  5 star

This is a must have for anyone who is interested in vegetarian/vegan cuisine and who travels. This app will give you all essentials information about where and when to eat cruelty free while supplying with all the details you would need to have worry-free traveling experience)!
