HappyCow Find Vegan Food Reviews


A salvation😍🙌🏼  Melchizedek-Priestess  5 star

Thank you guys for developing this App and because it works in Puerto Rico!! It’s like a salvation for someone like me new to Veganism🙌🏼.


Great Eating Out and Delivery food tool  Sam&Frodo  5 star

I was amazed to find all the options I never knew existed for vegetarian, gluten free and meat eaters too. I love the app. Great food. Great choices. Great app.


Lacking options  UnStOpPaBlE11332  1 star

You can’t even search by restaurant, which means you just have to hope the restaurant you’re looking for pops up. Wish I didn’t waste money on this app.


Very handy  Die4ALivn  5 star

This is a great app. Lots of great suggestions on where to eat healthy. It’s not 100% vegetarian, so anyone can use it. But if you want strictly vegan, they have you covered. Great app.

Venmo 👸🏽

Sincerely disappointed.  Venmo 👸🏽  1 star

I think it’s absolutely ridiculous that I can’t give a restaurant a 5 star rating due to the fact that they serve non vegan options. Very disappointing. I’m the only vegan person in my family, I don’t foresee them changing anytime soon. So in the meantime it’s important to find restaurants that EVERYONE wants to eat at. You shouldn’t knock a restaurant because they aren’t fully vegan. It’s very difficult for me, in living in the New England area to find a restaurant that myself and five others all want to eat at. Don’t get me wrong, I get PUMPED to find an all vegan restaurant, however the reality of me going there with my family and the people I love,just isn’t the case (right now). In fact, I only use this app to find restaurants that only have vegan options so that I can enjoy food with my family and friends. Otherwise I generally have to eat before and get something lame. You should praise restaurants for inclusion of the growing population of vegans. I’m proud to be vegan but hate to associate myself with those who are on a high horse of this being the “Bible” way to eat and live. I strongly believe in the ethical, sustainability and health benefits of this life style. But if we continue to meet people with hatred and seclusion we are only stunting the growth of the wonderful life style of veganism. Isn’t the whole premise to be kind and compassionate anyways? This feature must be changed and not be used as a punitive feature. Through love, education and leading by example is how you change individuals, but if we continue to put people down and make them feel bad, they will shut down and not hear the real message. Sincerely disappointed.


An absolute must for any vegan or vegetarian  XNDR  5 star

I recently went on a trip to Amsterdam, Paris and London. I thought that I would have limited food options as a vegan. Thankfully, HappyCow was there for me as an indispensable guide. I honestly don’t know what I would do without it, especially when I travel either nationally or now, internationally. The ability to map/locate restaurants, filter by what’s open, filter by only vegan, etc, is just wonderful. It gave me major peace of mind knowing that there were options out there for me, along with how far away they were and when they would be open until. The individual restaurant reviews are also consistently throughout and feel 100% genuine by real vegans and vegetarians. I would have paid the price of entry for this app many times over, its that helpful to me. Many thanks to the developer.

While traveling or at home in the DFW metroplex, this is a great resource. Hoping now for more vegan restaurants who offer low salt options and that Happy Cow can help us find them!


Vegan Haven  Shane_Hall  5 star

I use this app religiously, and I love it. It’s handy when on travel, or even discovering new places close to home. Writing reviews are easy, and the pros and cons descriptions are a nice touch. Highly recommend!


I love this app  thebuffblondie  5 star

This app is super helpful! Always using it to contribute and take part in the vegan community! Really helps find yummy plant based foods wherever you are! Makes it Super convenient and simple to eat veg anywhere


Changes  Linsze  3 star

When I first got this app it was great. But it has since changed. I don't like the changes. It is more unuser-friendly. Maybe there should be instructions to getting around the app.


Love it  ju799956  5 star

Brilliant app to find amazing food - used it in Melbourne Australia, Sedona Arizona and New York with great success. I was there before the locals in many cases 🥰🥰


Love it! Happy cow, I don’t know what I’d do without you!  Idemet  5 star

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

Couldn’t travel without it!  Francois P., Australia  5 star

Travelled EU for 5 months and the Happy cow app was my go to app to find places I could eat vegan. Easy to use, clear, comprehensive. Photos and comments usually reflect what to expect and were a good guide for us to find some gems of restaurants. Only gap is that it was hard to reconcile opening hours or even when places were closed (happened a couple of times we show up when it says it’s opened yet the place is closed - not sure it’s happy cow’s fault though) As a plant-based eater, this app has become my No 1 resource! Thanks guys and keep up the good work!


The most useful app I have  Milnesco  5 star

I use HappyCow routinely as I travel and to find vegan restaurants, cafes and businesses locally. It saves time, and provides reassurance through the reviews. I have used many similar apps but keep coming back to HappyCow because it is more comprehensive and easy to use.

Frustration  G w tgf  2 star

I have been trying to use the application for long time and most of the times it’s unreliable and frustrating Businesses sometimes closed down or operating hours isn’t accurate with outdated and misleading information I would say goole” vegan restaurant/shop near me” would be more reliable than happy cow :(


Happy  Allyyyyyyyy25283  5 star

Very good app. No issues or errors while using it. Very helpful to find veg eats.


Best app to help you find food  Plantlady25  5 star

So so so worth the money you’ll spend. This app is a life saver/time saver. Can’t suggest it enough. A must have app for travelling.


Life Saving for Vegans  aye_cee  5 star

Not only has this app helped me find seriously hard to find vegan stores in my local city of Newcastle, Australia, it has helped immensely in my travels over the last 12 months to New York City and Bali, Indonesia.


Makes travelling super easy  Lbrf  5 star

This app was a life saver in Japan. I was travelling there expecting to eat super basic/bland foods, and I probably would have if it wasn’t for this app. We were super busy in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, so whenever we had a quick break I could just hit the ‘vegan restaurants nearby’ button and there was always options with really precise instructions on the vegan options or what modifications you had to make. And it’s even handy to use at home in Australia too :)


Very Helpful App  Aquadragon's  5 star

I downloaded this app an hour ago and I've already found a good number of vegan places to try out around where I'm staying for the next two weeks. Such a bonus because it can be difficult finding good options


I love the app  100%vegan  5 star

I’ve used this app in a lot of counties and been really happy. From a small vegan taco cart in Mexico City to a great vegan place in Denver. You can’t go wrong with the help of this app. Easy to search ahead of time and create a ‘trip’, so when you get to your destination you already have your food mapped out.


Best resource for finding veg-friendly restaurants  xmrfigx  5 star

Someone recommended this to me when I first went vegan a few years back. It had been less than a month and I was just starting to feel that I wouldn’t be able to do it because I missed eating out with the family. We met this guy in front of the one vegan restaurant I managed to find by just trying to Google a bunch of stuff and when I told him what I went through, he told me about the app and I have been an avid user since! I have used it to plan trips because you can save an itinerary of places you want to visit beforehand and it’s really easy to add restaurants that you may find on your own. If you use the app I encourage you to leave reviews and add restaurants because that’s how the information grows. It is definitely worth the download! *As of Aug 2018, the app has been redesigned and looks great! The ability to filter by restaurant type directly from the main page is a welcome new addition!


Loving the update!  Imuser364  5 star

Thanks for making it easy to find good vegan food. It’s incredibly difficult without this app. Thanks devs!

It’s the Best!  Makeup gal  5 star

I went vegan 3 years ago and Happy Cow has been with me almost from the very beginning. I’ve used it in several foreign country visits and throughout France. I love this app. No matter where I am it lets me know where I can find something for me to eat...and places for me and my meat-eating husband to dine together while traveling or running errands in unfamiliar areas. Definitely recommend to vegans or just health conscious people.


Invaluable  VeganCook74  5 star

I’ve discovered so many new vegan restaurants with Happy Cow. It’s perfect for both travel and exploring my own city.

Amazing app  Viyan I'm a girl.  5 star

This app is amazing. We have used it extensively both at home (USA) and when traveling (Canada, Japan thus far) and it always yields great results. Very easy to use. Love it!


26 year vegan use this app all over the world  purerenegade  5 star

I’m a 26 year vegan / 15 year raw vegan and lifetime performing artist who tours all over the world and this app is everything. I’ve used it in Spain, Japan, Thailand, Switzerland, Italy, Costa Rica and so much more. I’ve certainly used it in all 50 states. And surprisingly, I use it regularly in my home city, Los Angeles, the world mecca of vegan food just to see what new places pop up. They show up on Happy Cow first. Of course the app is only as good as its community reviews, so I always try to upload a photo and short review where I go - especially if it’s a small town. It’s easy to use and through the photos and reviews, you can really tell what a place is going to be like before you make the trek there. Support!

Did not know  alenas mom  5 star

I had no idea about this app. A friend told me about it a week ago. As a vegan in a new city this thing is priceless. So glad to have a way to find vegan options no matter what city I’m in or where friends invite me to eat. Thank you.Genius.


it’s a beautiful thing  codita  5 star

i’m going to philly today and i can already tell this app is going to be life changing. well done!

Great App for finding Vegan Options locally or When Travelling  Abby W. M.  5 star

Highly recommend this app for vegans, particularly when traveling. App functions well, have not had any problems.


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
