Mel Gamboa - Best Search Tool for Vegan places
It’s easy to be mislead by ads or SEO’s that some restaurants have and then when you check them they barely have more than one vegan option in their menus (when they have any).
Also, to be honest, most of us vegans prefer to be patrons of restaurants 100% vegan, and thats what makes HAPPY COW app vegan’s best friend.
It’s worth it the small fee that actually supports the app development and is more than worth it to have it available for any time you decide to explore new cities and new vegan food places worldwide. Yes, the collective contribution to add as much information about vegan places is real.
The beauty of the app is also that it takes in consideration the differences between restaurants with vegan or vegetarian offers, restaurants that are vegan and vegetarian friendly and the ones that are 100% vegan that very often accommodate people that are also gluten-free, soy free, etc. I’m happy that I’ve been using it for a year now and I’ll keep using it because it rocks !!!
EmeraldCityGurl - Just use Google, honestly it’s way better
In response to Happy Cow’s response: You suggest “lowering your standards” and adding establishments that only offer “a few” vegan friendly options - excuse me but I thought the purpose of this app was to guide us vegans to restaurants that have vegan friendly options, even if it’s only “a few.” Maybe I misunderstood the premise of this app? I don’t think so. And I tried adding the place we ate at in Ely, NV and the website made me feel like it wasn’t appropriate to add it so I didn’t. Stupid questions like “are you SURE they have more than a few vegan options?” No, I’m not sure but I’d still like other vegans to know they can get a pizza there if they’d like. Google can do that, too. Google all the way. (Original review:)This used to be a great and helpful app for finding vegan food nearby - when I was in Seattle. Now, not so much. A month ago I went on the road and was fully expecting this app to help guide me to vegan friendly establishments. That has not been the case. For example, I’m sitting in Ely, Nevada right now and when I search in Happy Cow one restaurant pops up and it’s closed. However, when I search in google I found a pizza joint, a Mexican restaurant and a couple other places that offer vegan friendly options. I was borderline angry when I discovered that because I paid for this stupid app. I’m on the road 100% of the time and I’d suggest just using google and not waste your money on this app.
xmrfigx - Best resource for finding veg-friendly restaurants
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!
internalzebrapower - A must have for any vegan/vegetarian.
Upon going vegan I chose not to purchase this app due to the higher than average price, but since then I have had many great meals thanks to this app which makes it well worth the cost. The app has some issues that need to be worked upon and the kind developer team has informed me that they are aware of them and are doing their best to integrate them.
I recommend this app to anyone who is traveling or living in a metropolitan area where there may be vegan/vegetarian restaurants unknown to them. For those who reside in the suburbs and don’t travel I recommend you use the free website to see what types of options there are around you at one time. I wish there were vegan/veg restaurants everywhere but that is not always the case so check the website first.
I hope that the happy cow community grows because for now I use happy cow to locate the restaurant but google to see the reviews and photos. If a rest isn’t on happy cow has a large number of positive reviews and photos it’s bound to be a home run of a a meal.
purerenegade - 26 year vegan use this app all over the world
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!
[J_C]* - Only worth it if free
As a vegan I like supporting vegan products, but this app is not worth even $.99... the selection is poor and only limited to places that are 100% vegan. I want to find places I can eat and don’t want to be controlled by the developer’s filtered choices. Many restaurant in my area that are vegan friendly, but only like 7-8 within 25-30 mile radios (I live in the currently 4th largest metropolis area of US).
I went to find by the map and when used the selected area, the map zoomed in (glitch) and gives me the result just for small selection.
I hate the fact that I can’t get my money back!! I paid $3.99 thinking it was a good app as I usually get if I pay more than $1... can’t believe that Peta recommended this app.
Do not purchase until they improve their database and bugs. I see plenty of options in TripAdvisor and Yelp in my area. This app is only worth if it is free at the moment, and even then TripAdvisor or Yelp provides more options and includes vegan friendly places.
Btw - not supporting restaurants that are vegan friendly and offer 100% vegan options in their menu without having to modify the order, is not supporting restaurants management that are being open minded and value our life style.
Also it makes our cause easier when you can share with non-vegans without having to inconvenience anyone.
The more people order the offered options, the larger will be the vegan menu. Then, demand will grow when the options are available (more vegans).
Majoylind - Good idea, poor execution
I was very excited to get this app. I live in the middle of the Midwest in a college town, and didn’t know if there were any vegan options near me. Looking at the list on the app, I was pleased to see quite a few options, and I had hope.
But as I started making plans with friends and them asking the age old question of “can you eat here?” I found the app almost no help. So many restaurants in my area have vegan options or are vegan friendly, but aren’t listed in the search results. I tried to add one of them, and was discouraged by how big of a pain it is to add a place. I’m all for being thorough when listing restaurants, but you have to add every single menu item that is or could be made vegan, as well as answer way too many questions about willingness to accommodate.
All of this is to say that I paid for an app I don’t use because the list of vegan restaurants is outdated. Pretty disappointed.
Shanpelle - Phenomenal resource for veg-friendly options
I was initially hesitant to purchase this app due to it not being free (I’m cheap when it comes to app purchasing), but upon downloading it, I could not be happier. Especially when visiting new and unfamiliar locations, I have used this app to find restaurants able to accommodate my dietary choices.
Secondly, I really appreciate the ability to add reviews to the locations – both pros and cons – and the ease of adding photographs of the restaurants. (Venue is important!)
Third, I admit that I was annoyed when I noticed that multiple restaurants offering veg options were not listed on the HappyCow app; however, I decided that I could change that by adding them myself. Since then, I have found this app the greatest resource for me because it engenders and cultivates a community who is collectively trying to make eating veg an easier and more delightful experience.
Lastly, I’m extremely thankful for this app and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try veg, already veg, or simply interested in seeing veg options throughout their area.
AlexT2019 - I really wanted to like this, I really did
I live in a town with an amazing food culture, and tons of veggie friendly businesses.
Even with these elements, HappyCow is inconvenient at best. There is a breakdown of dietary levels and some great reviews, but you have to go to a different section “filter” to refine a search
If you are in the mood for a certain place, you have to take additional steps to find it, unfortunately, competitors like Yelp work better for my family, (which I don’t necessarily like, but reliability and functionality is key for an app for us).
Recently, Happy Cow reached out to me for feedback, and I attempted to give some constructive feedback to help make the tool better. I received back an email basically stating, “well you are just doing it wrong”. Yeah I do agree, I was probably doing it wrong. However, if in this day and age, someone interacts with your app and has trouble using it, then perhaps there may be room for improvement. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to figure out how to use every app I use, so my default is to not use those apps that seem abstract.
I really want to support Happy Cow, it just is more trouble than it is worth for me. Hopefully they are able to address their limitations objectively, as I am appreciative of their mission.
Kathryn speaks - This app was a lifesaver in Italy!
We just returned from a 10 day tour in Italy and this app was a lifesaver!! We were able to search out vegan restaurants in Rome, Tuscany and Venice!! We ate like kings and everything was so easy to find! Thank goddess for this app! In the land of dried meats oil and cheeses we found fresh and savory selections in every town we visited! This app was so worth the price! We use it all the time!! Thank you Happy Cow! My only request/feedback is that you add “Whole Food Plant Based” or “WFPB” as one of your dietary label choices, pretty please🙏🏻 I’ve selected Herbivore but would appreciate the correct title to be available for those who are WFPB, which many are for health reasons.
GraceLorraine - Excellent Investment
The convenience is priceless! As in, it’s worth a LOT more money than is charged, just to find exclusively vegan dining establishments—and they also list so much more, even farmers’ markets. I recall my last pre-vegan roommate asking me get “heartburn” pills for him, which he took nearly every day; they were expensive. For anyone regularly taking antacids because of meat eating, I’d highly suggest buying the app to find all-vegan restaurants once in a while—you can go in, order anything on the menu, and probably not need to take any pills! There are so many reviews to help you choose, especially by vegans.... Get out and live a little!
Luna1437 - Cool concept but..
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.
Edit: I appreciate the developer response, but it seems like this app is not what I was looking for. It seems like it is not geared towards those of us who are having difficulty finding restaurants with ANY vegan options, but instead for people who are surrounded by vegan and vegetarian restaurants and just need help choosing which one.
Disappointing, because I am aware of the one all-vegan restaurant in my town, but I wouldn’t necessarily know which places would have a vegan item or two on their menu. It seems this app would be helpful if you lived in a large, vegan-friendly city.
Edit 2: after reading the other reviews, it looks like they’re no longer allowing submissions for restaurants that serve meat? That would explain why nothing was coming up for me. If this is true, that completely erases the functionality of the app in my mind. Not all of us have the luxury of getting to eat at all vegan and vegetarian restaurants! Sad.
MahlyC - Don’t leave home without it!
I’ve never felt strongly enough about an app before to bother rating it. We rely on this wherever we go - even in Europe. I love the “veg options” feature because we have a vegan, a lacto-ovo and two omnivores who prefer meat. So we’re able to find places fit for everyone.
We use the app to plan our sightseeing schedule so we’re close to something good at mealtime. Options include grocery stores, so whether we’re with family in Frankfurt or AirBNB in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire, we know where to go. Love that you can see what’s open and easily click for directions.
blukas - Missing features
It’s nice to get a social side of plant-forward diets, and the following for the app has really made it a great resource for finding those places.
* Update based on developer’s second response:
I appreciate your time to explain the intention behind the app. I think that others could benefit by understanding that you want to highlight places that are *purposely* providing plant-based options. I recommend you put that in the app’s description. As it stands, it seems like you’re trying to advertise your service as a yelp-for-vegans; which is why I was confused.
dmagne27 - Needs improvement!
Ok I get how valuable this information is catering to vegan / vegetarians. The problem is if I’m paying $3.99, I expect the data to be reliable. The price point is not the issue but the fact that the end result is the opposite of the value I expect out of it. My girlfriend is vegan and I bought the app to use in Paris and, no exaggeration, three places in half a day were closed or had no vegan food left. I also noticed places that had some options that aren’t listed. That said, I think they should reconsider making this app free so people can share the info that improves the data quality being offered. At some point, going around is time consuming, exhausting, and expensive. I’d like for you to succeed but you need to make some changes pronto.
Ckorss - 11/10
I tried this app a while ago, and I didn’t like it too much because there were a few issues with it at the time. But, I recently went vegan and had a hard time finding places that would suit my diet. Luckily, I decided to give this app a second chance, and I’m glad I did! Every issue has been fixed, and I love it now! I don’t travel much, but it has helped me find new places to eat in a town that I thought I knew like the back of my hand. When I do travel, the first thing I check is my app to see where I can eat- it’s a lifesaver!
Tried to make it work. - Plant Based No-Oil options
The happy cow app has been very helpful to my wife and I under our new lifestyle of plant-based know oil living. We are wondering if you could add a feature or filter for establishments that are willing to serve a plant-based know oil option. Very difficult to find places that have it on the menu. We recently found a great one near JFK Airport in New York City thanks to your app. We were disappointed that there is no way to identify such accommodating establishments with your app.
The numbers behind Dr. Collin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn continue to grow exponentially. We hope you can serve this growing group of followers with your wonderful app.
landdolphin - BEST VEGAN RESOURCE EVER
I have been using this app ever since I went vegan three years ago. It shows you all the vegan-friendly restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores in an area. Whenever I go on a trip, I use this app to find vegan food places, and it has been indispensable for locating AMAZING places. I have never had a poor experience at any of the many places I’ve visited thanks to this app. Not all of the places are strictly vegan, but that’s ok, because they still have vegan options. Also, the profiles of the places tell you if it’s “vegetarian,” “vegan,” or “veg-friendly.”
I'mSabai - Best app for vegan and vegetarian travelers!!
My husband and I love this app!! We love to travel around the world and every place we go there are vegan options for us thanks to HappyCow.. we use this app and TripAdvisor to strategically find hotels close to vegan restaurants... I also found one time a vegan bed and breakfast in the FL Keys and I took my husband there for birthday ... I don't compare this app to yelp because in Yelp I don't trust if the place is complete vegan or not.. maybe it's me, but happy cow was created with a different mission compared to Yelp.. hope this review helps! Totally worth the $4!!
XNDR - Indispensable app for any vegan / veg
I rarely write app reviews but this app has truly been a life saver countless times on countless trips. Whenever I am in a new city, country or continent HappyCow is among my most used apps. It saves you a tremendous amount of time by locating nearby restaurants, shop, grocers and many other categories that cater to vegans or vegetarians. Then, each place you find has honest, trustworthy reviews from other vegans. Not like Yelp reviews, where they are completely untrustworthy. This app is WELL worth it’s small asking price. Thank you HappyCow!
Libbylooloo - Love this app.
Being vegan can be challenging when eating out but this app helps so much.
Delighted to find even when I am visiting China it’s still offering suggestions. I guess it’s only as good as the people who use it so I must remember to keep adding and making reviews as we all should do. It’s what its all about helping each other along .
I tell all my vegan and none vegan friends about this, times are changing and it’s amazing people who aren’t vegan will know someone who is so keep spreading the world about this app it’s such a brilliant app.
debaser78 - Lifesaver
I was born and raised a strict vegetarian and I travel a lot for work. I’ve been using happy cow for 10 years now, and this app has changed my life. I used to go overseas (Korea/Japan/China) and was completely lost when it came to finding food. I’d be lucky to go on a trip and have some bread and water to eat. Happycow has literally changed my life. Now I can go alllllmosssst anywhere and be able to find a great meal.
I don’t think I’ve been to a city in the last 4 years where happycow didn’t have listings.
This is awesome.
FIXTHISALREADY - Best Food App if You Travel!
I was a little deterred by the $4 cost for an app, but it was more than worth it to plan my Japan trip!! I’m so floored by how amazing this app is and it’ll also help me find places around town easier as well. My only complaint is that it seems to have recently changed from a 4-star max rating to 5-star (?), so all the reviews I’m seeing for food in Tokyo mention something along the lines of “I wish there were more than 4 stars to give”, so I feel like ratings should be adjusted.
Bee-Ten - Great for road warriors
I haves used this app around the world to discover great restaurants often in walking distance. Truly awesome.
One tip: call ahead to verify a restaurant is open or still operating. Restaurants change their hours often and there’s a lot of turnover in the business. If you do find info is out of date, take the time to update in the app or on the website.
And unlike a lot of apps, it is actively developed with frequent updates by a developer that takes feedback well.
CrazyKitkat3 - Favorite App
This app has been a savior for me when traveling. It gives me recommendations of vegan-friendly places that I would not have known of otherwise, based on my location. It has made it much easier for me to find places that cater to me, taking the pressure of me when I’m a new place. I even use it in my hometown to see what new restaurants have popped up. MUCH more effective than google-searching for places and definitely more reliable. I can’t explain how much I value this app.
sheilaxvx - Best travel buddy... home and abroad
I love to travel. I LOVE that no matter where I go, happy cow is reliable in helping me track down vegan options. I travel 3-4 days a week and I’ve found the best restaurants in the middle of nowhere. The reviews are honest and done by actual vegans and vegetarians, not just someone guessing what veg people might eat. Sorting by open now and distance makes this app really versatile. Happy it’s been around as long as it has, and the reviews and options continue to grow with it.
Curtis Schmitt - A Must-Buy For Vegans
Dining out was a lot easier when I was vegetarian but now that I’m vegan it’s simply too time-consuming to sift through Yelp and Google reviews to figure out 1. If a restaurant actually serves any vegan dishes and 2. how good those vegan dishes are.
You know on Happy Cow that the reviews are by fellow vegans and vegetarians so they more accurately predict the experience as opposed to restaurants receiving many five star ratings for their steak and other animal flesh based dishes, while their veg options are just afterthoughts.
Sunnydays365 - Lackluster Experience So Far
I love vegan for so many reasons. My top three being compassion, my health, and the environmental impact. This app is great for finding finding strictly vegan restaurants. It’s usefulness diminishes as you move towards more inclusive options. For instance, in Reno there is a breakfast place called Two Chicks that has an amazing vegan skillet and delicious vegan pancakes, but many meat options too. They don’t make the list.
The app doesn’t allow you to search for a particular restaurant. I’d also like to sort by meal (breakfast, lunch, Italian, Mexican, etc.).
Lastly, you cannot rate a restaurant five stars if they aren’t strictly vegan. They have a category for “veg-options”, why not allow me to give a place with veg options five stars? Seems discriminate.
I hope the app continues to develop, and I’m happy to contribute my $4 to the cause, but at this time I do not recommend it as a one stop shop to find vegan food in your area. I still find yelp and google more useful.
Bleek300 - *****APP OF THE YEAR*****
I travel LOTSSSSS for the government. Finding food around the county and world was hard. Most days I would either starve or eat very little because there is NO WAY for me to google search or drive around asking for Vegan restaurants, until now. Eating is a basic necessity. Us vegans don’t always have the option for food in remote locations. Happy Cow has made my life much easier and given me more options that I would most likely never have discovered. THANK YOU!!! -Navy Chief⚓️
London Ladd - Such a great app
There’s something really strengthening to have this app when traveling. I’m pretty aware of what is near me so I don’t have to look up much locally unless I’m curious to try something that might be new. But when out and about on an adventure elsewhere this is super helpful! Especially since most of my family isn’t vegan I can also find places that they might enjoy but have great options for myself. Whoever made this app is genius. Thank you!
Bob.Aerofun - Vegan Traveler’s Aide
We find Happy Cow very helpful while traveling - to find restaurants that provide good vegan food. We find that even the Veg Friendly restaurants almost always can make one or more of their options vegan when asked. These options are so so much better than the ones when you ask for vegan and they don’t know what that means. Good job Happy Cow. I know you’re growing fast and that must bring challenges. Keep up the good work.
vegankunt - super cool but needs tweaking
The app is super easy to use and very helpful, but I wish it were more polished! Literally, every uploaded picture looks grainy (is it because of the watermark?) and something as seemingly useful as a menu photo ends up being totally useless, and I have to either rely on a website that‘s hopefully updated or Yelp. It‘d also be nice if pictures were separated categorically: menu, food, drink, inside, outside. This helps me get a better understanding of a spot and not weed through blurry pictures.
Spike&midnight - The Food is excellent!
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 !
Trummerflute - Don’t Leave home without it!
I have traveled around the world, to Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and I’m planning a trip to Africa. In each case, I have found a HappyCow app to be indispensable in planning exciting and healthy eating on the road. I trust the reviews, they are always spot on. I have easily added new-found gems to the collection (somewhat easier on the website), and made updates to existing restaurants. I’m very grateful for the HappyCow community!
Makeup gal - It’s the Best!
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.
Leonardoty - Over the top
This app is too much. There are plenty of restaurants with vegetarian/vegan options near me, and hardly any of them show up on the app. Why? Because this app isn’t just about finding vegan and vegetarian options, it’s about only supporting businesses that conform to their idea of vegan idealism. There is an entire page on their website about why they won’t add your submission due to their specific rules. It’s what drives people away from the idea of being vegan and honestly, is what drove me away from their app. I don’t need to be alienated, I just want to find vegetarian friendly options.
Lil Ms Vegan - Vegan Savior!
Thank you, Happy Cow, for always helping us find something good to eat!! I love being part of the Happy Cow community and I’ve created some of my best Food Memories thanks to you! I would love if Happy Cow could be linked to my GPS to show me vegan options along my route! That would be so helpful as I drive a lot for Work and would love to see what’s on my way, vs 7 miles back (for example) - thought I would share my idea!
Beckybbb - Sooooo useful while traveling!!
Happy Cow has left this very hungry vegan satiated while traveling countless times. I also have discovered restaurants in my city thanks to this useful app.
I definitely recommend adding restaurant listings, reviews and photos if you use the app a lot. I started contributing more to the app and it’s nice knowing that other compassionate people are finding good eats thanks to my contributions!
justincbk - Disappointing
I was really hoping to uncover some new vegan options near my workplace. If you eat vegan, you know your “watering holes” but it can get repetitive. So I was surprised that even my regular places weren’t listed, some of which are well-known vegan/ vegetarian eateries. I tried to add a restaurant, a chain that has several other locations in the city (which the app recognized), but I have to fill in a written description, from scratch? Sorry, I’m all for community-building, but why am I paying for an app if I have to do the work myself? I might as well ask Siri. Not much added value here.
I110O - App doesn’t solve problem of no vegan restaurants
The premise of this app is good but having an app to find vegan restaurants doesn’t magically make them appear. When I first installed it it came back with nothing, so I went in to “filters” and increased the search radius to 50 miles and then one restaurant is listed. So if I drive for over an hour I can get breakfast or lunch (they don’t serve dinner...)
We don’t need apps so much as we need vegan restaurants!
I would say save your $3.99 and use Yelp, but Yelp lists places as vegan that aren’t.
Sam1etu - More than worth it! Much better than google
I can’t believe people who say that using google or yelp is better than this app. I never get clear search results for vegan or vegetarian restaurants with those apps. This was well worth the $4. Easy to filter based on vegan, vegetarian, or regular restaurants with veggie options. I can’t wait to keep discovering new veggie restaurants with this app!!
Soleil - Quantum Split - Happy Cow has truly saved my life
I am a touring vegan musician and sometimes eating gets really tough on the road. Especially finding vegan things in states you aren’t familiar with. Happy Cow has made it easier for me countless times. Going to different states to eat is now fun!!!! Thank you Happy Cow for being so amazing. I don’t starve on the road anymore now I can fully nourish my body because of you!
starclasic - Not accurate nor updated.
Perhaps due to the fact that I’m not living in the USA. But for what are you paying for this app they should provided an reliable information regarding restaurants. What’s more these seems to be a community sourced platform which means the user which must pay for the app to use can / have to add restaurants. So far I haven’t been satisfied using this app hope the developers switch into a proactive way of providing a reliable source of information for vegan and vegetarians.
BriggitteD - GREAT APP!
I’ve been using the HappyCow app for years and it’s the best money I’ve spent on any app. I use it all the time locally and when I travel around the world. It’s truly invaluable to know where vegan options are and the app has definitely been a lifesaver more than a few times!
Highly recommend to anyone looking for an easy to navigate vegan friendly restaurant guide!
m0.0nster - Awesome
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.
artigupta - A no brainer buy for vegans
The first thing you should do when you go vegan is buy this app. The website is excellent too but the app on the phone is a lot more convenient. I love to travel and that would have been very hard if I did not have this app. It makes exploring food at new places really easy. Totally worth the one time payment for the app.
GirlCali - Great app!
We just spent 4 weeks in Europe. This app helped us find marvelous food in out of the way places. We enjoyed the adventure of discovering delicious vegan restaurants. From burgers to elegant meals.
The downside was that we would walk to a restaurant just to find out they were no longer open. At times we used Google to find foods and restaurants that should have been listed in Happy Cow. Overall, we love Happy Cow, because it is do universal!
Thank you, Happy Cow!
TV Viking - Happy Cow Saves Lives
I’ve been stranded in foreign countries without a clue where to find good food and Happy Cow and it’s lovely community comes through every time.
Happy cow keeps me healthy and connected to great people and food options. It also keeps animals alive and makes the earth cleaner. I’d gladly pay more for this app.
I think they should make it an annual subscription .
anonym2394u12934 - Great idea
This app is a great idea, and I’m glad that I got it. I find it slightly annoying that I have to create an email-tied account to leave a review. Why can’t I just leave an anonymous review, or at least create an account without using my email?
Another problem: the distances in the app are often wrong, according to my maps app. Restaurants appear somewhat closer than they are. It’s not so awful, but it could use a fix.
pkintokyo - Vegan lifesaver
Whenever you’re outside of your normal domain, nothing can be more exasperating than having trouble finding something to eat when you’re hungry. Solution: this app! No matter where you are in the world, you’ll most likely find a place with, at the very least, some vegan options. I personally recommend using HappyCow 110%.

MrMcBlaster - Makes travel as a vegan stress free
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!
Francois P., Australia - Couldn’t travel without it!
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!
Mel_Mou - A life saver!
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!
Lbrf - Makes travelling super easy
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 :)
VickiMITCH - Best vegan restaurant finder!
I never thought I would need an app like this but it has helped so so much when travelling and looking for vegan food, even in Brazil where vegan foods are scarce. I am glad I got this app, well worth the money! Can’t wait to see how the app grows and continues to showcase vegan foods for others to find and experience. It is also very inclusive for other allergies etc not just vegan.
Hannah Shania - Awesome app
This is perfect comes up with vegan restaurants and also restaurants that have vegan options. It also has vegetarian options. And it works worldwide 🌱 bonus it works overseas too so it was very helpful. I recommend this app to anyone who’s vegan or vegetarian.
I love the point system too- very handy, I downloaded the app years ago and I will use it as long as it runs. 😍
go!vegan - My favourite app!
This app is my go-to whenever i’m out and looking for something to eat. It automatically detects my location and you can pick if you’re looking for vegan, vegetarian, or places with vegan options. It is so convenient and informative, has ratings and reviews, you can add places to your favourites, tells you the price range of places. Amazing app!!!!
M@rtym - Wherever you are - you can leave happy cows
I’ve been using the website for ages which is fine; but the Happy Cow App is Alice saver. On road trips around Australia - it helps you decide which towns to check out - and even makes some a destination in itself!
Would be great to separate out “vegan treats for breakfast/coffee” from the restaurant focused listings...
Big Nute - Happy Wandering Vegan
Initially I was not so impressed but have since found some wonderful vegan options that I would not have been aware of without the app’. The opening times are very informative. There are of course options available not outlined in the app’ but it is a great place to start.
JackLoRusso - Makes vegan travel easy
It's like having a knowledgeable vegan friend in every city you're in. We've used it all over the world and found amazing places because of it. App is perfect, better than using the website. plus why not support the great work they are doing! Thanks happy cow <3
Aquadragon's - Very Helpful App
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
Milnesco - The most useful app I have
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.
sezbakes - So useful
This app has been incredibly helpful whilst travelling around south and Central America. Some of the best food we've had on the 8+ month trip has come from recommendations from this app! Love reading people's reviews and finding new healthy vegan places to eat around the world!
Jasperzee - Great for local and travelling
Use this app so often when I need help finding food close by that is plant based. Was exceptionally helpful on a recent trip to Japan - Hakuba and Tokyo, and I love seeing more places showing in my local city. Love telling people about this app
mummymummymummymummy - Perfect in finding vegan eats in different countries and your own.
I couldn’t believe how this app existed and I never knew. It’s made searching for vegan places so much easier. I’m planning a trip to Bali soon and I know where to stay in close proximity to eats. Amazing.
netgila - Fantastic app - super fantastic when traveling!
Great to find nearby veg/vegan meal options.
Have made some great food discoveries with this app.
Without the app we would have completed missed the great food and would have been stuck eating mixed veggies with rice or noodles : ).
Sharee1979 - Every traveling vegans must have app!
I travel a lot, Happy Cow is my ‘go to’ each time I visit a new town or city. It genuinely makes my life so much easier not having to google and research where to go, it’s all in one easy to use app.
I recommend it to anyone who likes to travel and eat 😃
didiisbored - Essential for travelling vegans
This has been a life safer whole travelling and has saved as a lot of time. I specially appreciate the pictures and reviews left by other users and i try and do the same
BodyRelate - Supporting life-affirming travelling ☺️
Allows ease and convenient access to a range of healthful food options while transitioning to and through new and uncertain areas of the world..
- Can be a way to meet interesting folk too.
aye_cee - Life Saving for Vegans
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.
Ryan Kingy - Must have any for any vegans
This app has got me out of trouble so many times and shows you can find vegan options were ever you go.
G w tgf - Frustration
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 :(
Dimples P - A time saver
As a new vegan it has been a challenge to find vegan friendly places on google. This app makes my life easier.
b_t_t - Amazingly helpful for when you are travelling
Would have never found so many delicious eats without the help of this app
Idemet - Love it! Happy cow, I don’t know what I’d do without you!
Travel for business regularly. App works very well in all locations. Map function is effective. Thanks!
SvenReed - Useful
Useful app with easy interface. Definitely worth the few bucks it costs.
EvieLee73 - Hooray for Happy Cow
Makes travelling and being out and about and stuck for food a thing of the past!
❤️allanimals - Happy vegan
I love the happy cow app and I’m always recommending it to others. Makes life so much easier trying to find vegan options. Thanks so much, regards Brenda Aspey 🌱
Plantlady25 - Best app to help you find food
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.
Unfitguru - Most helpful app
I love my Happy Cow app - it’s been sooo useful locally in Australia, but also traveling in Europe. Literally couldn’t live without this app. Great job to the team behind Happy Cow 🐮🌈💜
lmerriganturner - Wish I could get a refund.
Same if not less information than google maps and irrelevant restaurant suggestions. Used the app in both the USA and Australia and every time google maps came up with better, clearer results with more restaurants and vegan businesses. Just use google this app is a waste of time, I want a refund.
mesheilab - Top app 👍👍
What a great little app this is - makes it so easy to eat out with no time wasted looking around for choices 🙂
Qi77 - Life changing :)
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.
Hahahahashshsjxhxis - Constantly crashes
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
carlyjane69 - Very useful app
So handy to have to look up vegetarian and vegan food while traveling. A total must have!
The real Whitefish! - The greatest!
The greatest of all the apps in the whole universe. It helps me find food. I like that. Thank you.
Holly Hungry Vegan - Great as a travelling vegan!
I love this app!! It has saved me so many times when overseas. Well worth it!
Cecimcfly - Great idea, not very user friendly
Very useful when travelling but hard to look up places in specific suburbs/areas. Needs improvement
Aussie Alicia - Living my best vegan life in Bali!
Happy Cow makes traveling so much more enjoyable and fun! Totally worth having.
Smueli - Happy Cows Makes Happy Vegans
Great App very useful and handy especially when traveling 👍
Allyyyyyyyy25283 - Happy
Very good app. No issues or errors while using it. Very helpful to find veg eats.
Cat_Gurl - The best!
I love this app more than anything. Especially good for travelling! A must for all vegans.
ju799956 - Love it
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 🥰🥰
malte2008 - Life Saver
Super helpful, especially when traveling abroad!
sophielikesfood - So so good
Could not ask for a better app!
Elizaval - LOVE THIS APP
Great for research before you visit a place. I found it extremely helpful.
Hannah Puller - Best vegan travel app ever!
I use it and add in up to date reviews myself.
matt37483 - Amazing app
Must use when travelling
Lana Pisani - Overall GREAT
LOVE THIS APP
But would love a vegan option filter as well as a veg-option filter
clmah - Absolute live saver
Great app, don’t know how I have not heard of it sooner!!

T Briggs - Best App!
I travel extensively for work across the globe and this app is indispensable. I’m vegan and it’s helped me find great places to eat all over the world.
Miranda Sheppard - The BEST app ever!!!
Love this app beyond words. It finds us healthy vegan eats wherever we happen too be! 🧘🏼♀️📿🌱
Ulricke - Rawsome!🌿
Pretty neat app, it’s really helped me find local places to stuff my face with goodies🍓 I could only suggest that you give it a try, it sure was worth my money!
Hope you find your vibe here🤟
JB021 - Gotta support small business
I frequented this place a ton! Such an amazing owner. Mo is there all the time cranking out great custom ice kream and smiles. They are open late and always clean the anti griddle before they make your vegan dessert.
Check this place out! He doesn’t disappoint.
dodoanddorY1! - Life changing!
I am not sure how I lived before this app. As a vegan I remember using google maps for half a year and that was awful! This is by far the best app ever 🤩
SilverTx - The best
This app is awesome, I use it all the time!
amiressy - Awesome
My wife and I travel lots and this app saves us from starving. 😉
Emma Creature - Amazing App
HappyCow has helped me find vegan food all over the world. In particular, it saved me in Japan where vegan options are often hard to find. It’s very functional and easy to use, with regular updates and also an incredible member community! I definitely recommend paying the small amount to use this app all over for the rest of your life. It’s most definitely worth it.
High priestess B - Love Love Love it!
I just downloaded this app, and I’m in love! Thank you thank you thank you
alexsevigny - Very useful app
I use HappyCow whenever I visit a new place. The community of vegan diners is always a good guide. I have made effort to post reviews and have actually been thanked by people who read them.
ACDC ANGUS - Vegan restaurants
Happy cow is an awesome fantastic app. We have used it all over the World in Australia, New Zealand, U.S., Canada, and directs us to the closest vegan or vegetarian restaurants starting with the closest one to us. I’ve shared it with many people that are vegan/vegetarian or transitioning. Highly recommended
catherine200198638 - Not working
Why can’t I download it back?
Debrakadabra - Best App
My husband and I have so much fun using this app when travelling to look for awesome vegan restaurants. It always makes our trips.
Thank you Happy Cow!!!
CDMflyer - I’d be lost without Happy Cow
I travel for a living and use Happy Cow everywhere I go. It makes it so easy to find plant-based food without extensive research. The reviews are an excellent way to determine if a location serves food to your particular taste as well. Good job Happy Cow!
Dancecrazy3 - OMG! What a vegan restaurant!
Met friends at VHC for the first time. The menu and food is amazing. Doug the server was very friendly, informative with an entertaining personality. This place has a great setup where if you just want to get together with friends for drinks there’s a bar and tables. However being plant based I can’t say enough great things about this place. They even have entertainment Monday,Thursday with a comedian on Saturdays.
Agill369 - Amazing
Incredibly helpful especially when traveling
((( Shallow Grave ))) - Wow!
This is a time saver and oh so useful! When me and my family are out and about it’s always been difficult to find healthy food on the go. Now it’s so simple and the online reviews are very helpful. Well worth the $5.00 and the community forum is fantastic!
onareach - Amazing
It’s easy to use and finds stuff quick. Definitely want to support the devs behind this.
harusmom - Absolutely delicious
This restaurant is only a month old. 100% Vegan lunch.
Dinner has fish. The place is hard to find; it’s the basement of a larger building that houses Hotel B.
Lunch today included tempeh, salad, gobo, sweet potato, rice, and amanagatogarshi peppers. Delicious homemade dressing.
I will be back!
Lauryk - Not up to date
Really disappointed. Says open when it’s not. Says open when definitely closed. Not truth worthy. The only option for vegans but it’s disappointing so far
Akshopping - Amazing guide to vegan food
If you are traveling, this app is precious. It help you find vegan eats wherever you go. I’ve even used it in my own home town and discovered new vegan options in various restaurants. Super helpful.
Moyah! - Worth every penny
I did not know that I lived next to so many vegan establishments.
Nedmarie - Been using for well over a year
Love this app, it’s consistently works, have found so many places to eat in my travels, they update changes very quickly. Love leaving reviews and marking my favs for when I go back to that town. This app has been invaluable to me as a plant based eater, highly recommend!
Georgot - Happy cow Happy man
It is so comforting to know that one can target a restaurant and know that you will be fed properly without hesitation.
sndra p - Great help, wonderful support
I love this app
deliciozo - Useful app for vegans and vegetarians
Finds good food options that make me (vegetarian) and my family happy in any city.
I know it’s not their focus, but It would be nice if they could add a gluten free tab as well.
The End of Privacy - Such a useful app!!!
This app is so useful for vegetarians, vegans and health food enthusiasts at home and when you travel.
From shops to restaurants it's perfect. The reviews by users are very helpful too, as are the photos.
Leapy_lea - Best vegan app
This app is amazing, I drove across Canada and was able to find amazing and remote vegan options and food establishments all across the country! It’s great to see where you want to go and how to plan your day!
A_706 - Love it!!!
Best app for vegetarians and vegans to see what is out there!❤️😍 so greatfull for this app💗💗
mabby77 - Ok but needs more reviews
I love this app but it need some updates information and reviews. Lots of veg friendly resto that aren’t on here and even missing a few of the new Vegan hot spots in Toronto such as Stella and Rosalinda.
Colorful71 - Best app to find veg friendly food world wide!
I so appreciate this app especially when travelling. There’s always a new option somewhere close by. I look forward to a vegan future 😊
mel:b - Super application
Merci beaucoup pour les concepteurs l’application est très utile pour diminuer notre consommation d’animaux dans nos assiettes.
wallaceJP - Love the app!
Love the app, but wish there was one more thing available on it...
the app has been so helpful in many ways at home and on trips. The reviews are extremely helpful and I have been able to invite non vegan friends to spots that have raving vegan food. I can also go out with them knowing ahead of time if I can eat at their spots or if their is at least one option for me before agreeing to go.
What I wish for is a section on the app to save “wish list” of restaurants and spots I plan to try. The restaurants/spots I’ve visited and will return to are saved in the like/favourites (heart) spot, but no where to save a “plan to visit soon” spot.
When the group is planning a spot to visit, I’d like to click on my wish list of spots and quickly choose from the ones I’ve already read the reviews and checked the pics and decided I wanted to try. If that can be added then this would be a perfect 5star app.
LunaVegan - One of my favourite apps ever
This app has saved me time and time again. I absolutely adore this app and it is probably my top used app on my phone next to direction apps. I would buy this app over and over again and I rarely buy apps
QuickTapSurvey User - Why didn’t I get this app sooner?
As a vegetarian foodie, this is exactly the app I needed to make my travels that much more enjoyable!
Mrford007 - Totally glitchy
Why did I pay 5$ for a glitchy app?
Marc le vegan - Very usefull for travelling vegan
I found this application very usefull, when you travel and even at home. I found many vegan restaurant at home.
joyfulveggie - Website is better
I downloaded the app and noticed many local vegan places were missing. I tried to add them by going to the website but they were already there. Seems like the app is missing information. Seems like a waste of money to buy this app when the website is better and free.
RambodR - A vegan’s best friend
Worth the money
SSigouin - Indispensable et nécessaire
Indispensable et nécessaire, on ne peut plus s’en passer dès qu’on a commencer à s’en servir.
JustTanzy - Best Vegan App
My favourite vegan/vegetarian app. Super easy to use, lists everything that is close to me, it also works globally! I travel quite a lot, and it’s so great knowing I can find restaurants prior to my trip that fit my dietary needs.
Rafi11329379 - Literally best app ever
As a vegan, this app saved my life a THOUSAND times. HALLELUJAH.
ChelseaDorrell - Expensive
Expensive for an app that just shows you vegan restaurants... I already knew about most of them that were listed
chasingtara - Lifesaver!! Literally ;)
Thank you Happy Cow for giving us a kind option wherever we go. The very best app !
Sjkp4 - Great when traveling!
I used this in Europe and enjoyed some great food.
HDMIKE81 - Greatest ap ever
Best ap I ever downloaded
laconstateuse - Happycow everywhere!
I love this app! It's so hard to get to know the places offering vegetarian/vegan options that are safe. Happycow does the certification job for you! The app worths the few bucks, especially when travelling! It's a real tool! I hope it's gonna be everywhere one day :)
catmason - Doesn't always show veg-options in the area
I'm not sure if this app doesn't have info about restaurants with veggie options because it hasn't been updated recently but a lot of places that are veg friendly are not included. Other than that app is pretty good
Teknotribes - A really excellent app... Needs a few minor tweaks
I really love this app... Especially when traveling. It has been a life-saver on several occasions and is also just fun to look at and read.
My two suggestions are as follows:
Allow users to edit or delete their own posted reviews after posting. I have accidentally given places the wrong "star" rating and have no way of deleting or changing the review.
Make it easier for users to add locations. While the app list is quite extensive, there are so many great places missing!
Veggietraveller27 - Disappointed
I've used the Happy Cow website for years and loved it. This app has a lot listed, but when in a new city it really needs to have a good map feature to be useful. For example I was recently in London, which has hundreds of listings, but not knowing the area it was really hard to look at a list of addresses and guess what might be near my hotel. Searching for each address in a separate "maps" app is time consuming and impractical. Also to assist with planning a trip (before arriving) nice to be able to put in a desired address halfway around the world and not just have the app assume you are looking for food near where you are *right now.* I will watch for user-friendly updates with great interest. Thank you Happy Cow for your great website and database, and for your efforts to improve this app for us vegetarians on the go.

Tae=<>~>•£>|~<} - Omg! Thank You Happy Cow!
I just downloaded the app and saw that it was vegan restaurant right in the next town! I’ve search Vegan restaurants in google but this particular place never showed up! Thanks to Happy Cow I was able find a Vegan Restaurant and find an amazing home vegan shop less than 15 minutes away from home. Thank Happy Cow! Definitely worth the purchase!
Krystalchik43 - Best Vegan Resource Ever
It is the best because it goes where you go and gives really accurate information. I share the app with anyone who is on a wait at any restaurant. I make a point of especially sharing it with restaurant managers. Then I remind them that I will be rating them on their available vegetarian and vegan options, plus photos!
Ttorre - Indispensable app
This is a must have app if you’re vegan or vegetarian because you’ll discover so many places you wouldn’t otherwise have.
They’ve recently improve it with a social connect feature but so far I’ve only used it to find new locations to eat and to get recommendations on the best dishes at each place.
pamelarhyner - Happy cow app is so helpful!
The happy cow app is so great! I’ve been traveling a lot and it helps me to plan meals while on the road. The input from users is super important too. From actual reviews of the quality of food to the range of choice of vegan options, it really helps to manage expectations and make informed choices.
Thank you for creating this great tool!
illcomebackwiser - Plant-based must-have
Sick of packing nuts and protein powders to make it through uncertain food environments while on the road? Happy Cow has GOT you. Nuanced descriptions of which menu items or entire restaurants are plant based, easy to use maps, colorful real pics of vegan dishes. This app is probably the most valuable I’ve ever downloaded, certainly worth every penny of the price.
FemtiFem - Great content, so-so app
I bought this app because I want to support what they are trying to accomplish, but it doesn’t provide any better functionality than the website version. For example, can we really not see which ratings and reviews we’ve made previously? It tells me the number of contributions, but not what or where they are. I thought spending the money would enhance the user experience. It definitely did not.
Don Forman - Best app
Been using for a few years now. Not sure on some reviews not having vegan places around. Well, places don’t magically appear. People have to add them. And if your to lazy it’s not going to happen. I for one add places all the time and pictures too. I have found great vegan places in Italy, Singapore, Canada and places in USA. I’m really glad for Eric building Happy Cow app.
GLovesPeery - WV places needed
I bought this app. It came up with nothing nearby. I haven’t tried traveling with the app. I also heard we can add places to it if we find them. Hopefully, I’ll be able to add some places. Should we add vegan-friendly grocery stores or just restaurants ?
I like what the app is set up to do and I don’t mind donating $4 to keep it going. I’ll update the Rating to a 3 because of what it can do. I’ll edit that when I see how it works in other places.
TDHill - Best. App. EVER!
I could not live without this app. I have literally survived with it in places like Siberia! To help out this great community, I always try to take pics and share descriptive reviews. I also really appreciate vegan-friendly meal options in countries with few veg restaurants (i.e. The Azores, Portugal) which is extremely helpful when there are language barriers.
Chaunly - Great app for travel!
My husband and I travel a lot so this app is perfect to help us find meals while on the go. The only addition I would make is google map integration. I would love to pull up locations on the map to easily plan my travel day and a meal at each location. We have not been disappointed with the recommendations.
rrrrrrrka - Necessary for travel
When I first went vegan I used the web version now 1 1/2 years in I decided to go ahead and buy the app. My first $.99+ app purchase but totally worth it. I love how it will tell you what’s nearby. The location feature is with the price alone. We travel a lot and I bought the app with that in mind.
Daroff - Fantastic App to Find Healthy Restaurants!
Happy Cow is the must-have app for anyone seeking restaurants (& other stores) that serve healthy plant-based fare. I use the app in my home city, and when I travel, to find vegan, vegetarian, and veg-friendly places to live a healthy life. Information is comprehensive and current, as it is inputted by users, and curated by a dedicated team of volunteers.
Njones827 - Hooray!
I became vegan about 2.5 months ago and since I’m a teacher home for the summer it hasn’t been too hard. However, I knew I needed to find some options before school began. Stopped being a cheapo and paid the 3.99 for this ap. Great decision! I feel like a whole world of possibilities I didn’t know about are local!
This_wholeveganlife - Happy Cow is becoming my most used app
Happy Cow is a great app! Each week, I see more and more options and new venues being added. I use it all the time when traveling, even just to another town. And often, I’ll even check it in my own neighborhood to see what vegan spots are open/close!
Puppy whisper southeast - Super app!
Love this app! It has made it so much easier for us to plan our eating spots on vacation and pretty much anywhere. It will even allow us to map to all the locations! We can find their websites, menus, phone numbers and hrs at a glance. And it’s super easy to choose vegan, vegetarian or a mix and where to shop, too. Best $4 ever spent on an app!
grey turtle - Amazing app!!
We have been using the site for years in the states but I am even more impressed after traveling abroad lately. Who knew Paris and London could be so vegan friendly. Without this app we would never have known either! We have also found so many gems in obscure places in the US.
AWL9876 - Great app!
Happy Cow has been so helpful finding vegan restaurants. No matter where I am, I can now have a great meal. Instead of just a salad or a plain potato with steamed vegetables, I have multiple meal choices. I have found the best restaurants with delicious food everywhere I go. I have discovered great farm to table restaurants. I highly recommend this app!
100%vegan - I love the app
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.
kabbalahsky - Chef Jonny “NoBones” Rawlicious
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
Nubianblk - Handy App for finding food
I’ve used the app since August 2017. It is a handy accessory to help me find current and accurate information on vegan restaurants and options no matter where I have been. Highly recommend and can say there are also international options when traveling abroad.
Avelvetgarnet - Happy Cow Makes Me So Happy!!
Love this app! My children and I have used it in 4 cities to find vegan restaurants. I’m using right now to find a vegan friendly joint to meet a client in a neighboring town. Love it better than crispy cauliflower buffalo wings! Never mind, that’s not true, I’m craving those so bad right now... but the app is good too, really good.
weedabeeda - For 4$ I was expecting more.
So for all the great reviews here this app did not really live up to my expectations. I spend a lot of time in rural parts of the midwest, and this app is not helpful here. Also, the veg-options function is not super useful for vegans - I wish there was a separate tab or something to list vegan dishes for each restaurant. Also, why are users paying so much for an app that we input and maintain the information for?
Brian Sanderson - The best HappyCow experience
HappyCow is an invaluable resource, and this app is by far the best way to access it! The ability to sort by distance via the app is very convenient in areas with multiple nearby towns (compared with checking each town’s separate page on the website).
Jessy Catterwaul - I don’t like cows.
Very useful app.
But I don’t want to see a cow, or use a thing named after a cow. One of the main reasons I use this app is that I am thoroughly disgusted by cows and so need an app to make sure I never eat them.
Also, initiating a search when you’re in the middle of nowhere, without options, is impossible. It’s not suited to road trips or living in a rural area. Which is ironic, given THE HORRIFIC THEMING.
Mreeble - So glad I finally got this app!
For the longest time, I’d search Yelp reviews for the word “vegan”, which was time consuming and not all that effective. This is so much better!! I used it on my last trip and it made finding vegan food a breeze. Would definitely recommend!!
Can Can3 - If you live in a small city or town don’t buy this app!
This app isn’t helpful at all to people who may live in a small town or city! This app literally just tell you where you can go that’s Vegan, if you don’t have much options I suggest you don’t get it you’re better off calling all your local restaurants and ask them yourself before going. I’ve removed the app and still is being charge after I tried to get a refund with Apple! It’s sad that I have to keep paying for something I don’t and can’t use!
WBLVegan - If you travel you need this App!
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!
Lins H - Love! Have one suggestion
Love this app! Have one suggestion... why not add a way for people to see others who are using the app near them, and send them a message? This would help vegans and vegetarians find other like minded people and help build a stronger vegan community in all areas of the world!
XxrainbowkissxX - So Perfect
My best friend and I took a road trip from FL to NOLA and used this app the whole way there and back! We found great places to eat every time, and didnt have to worry about planning our route around restaurants. Just opened the app when we were hungry and stopped at the next yummy spot 😊
Gfhkkvt - Very useful
Such an awesome app to use especially if your traveling. I recently went on a road trip and this app really came through, I was able to find some hidden gems. Definitely worth the 3.99 investment if your curious about plant based or vegetarian options.
Mick Gator Fan - Hide Chains Is Great Addition
The ability to see just local places with veg-options is fantastic! When I travel, I like to try the local places whenever possible. And I can use that filter where I live, too, to make it easier to find new places to go.
motorcityfunk - Saved Our Lives (And Stomachs)
Used app on our 10 day trip to Japan. Guided us to some great spots - an Indian restaurant on the 8th floor in Shibuya, a vegan cafe with riverfront seating in Kyoto, a burrito joint with veggie options deep in Osaka subway station, and even the rare vegan ramen spot (an experience we thought we’d miss out on). Well worth for vegan/vegetarian travelers!
Nota meat - Outstanding app
I use this app all the time. I could not travel as a vegan without using this app. The cost is less than a latte and the payback is super. I am looking forward to the next upgrade to see what new features they add. This is a must have app for any vegan or vegetarian.
Great Gatspeee - Vegan life style
I was told about this app. Hesitant to pay, it has easily become my go to app.
My husband and I are having a blast trying new places , new date nights, the app is extra awesome with direction location from every destination you choose!
Thankyou Happy Cow. Air hugs! Much love ! Smoocheszzzzz!
Helenmba - So indispensable when traveling!
When you are from out of town and vegan - I just don’t know what I would do without a Happy Cow.
I was recently in Chicago which I know has lots of vegan but how to find them?
Happy Cow! Went to Nstive Food restaurant with family and everyone Loved it.
Thank you Happy Cow
LyyydSz - Best app for any vegan!!
Wow! This app has exceeded my expectations. I’ve avoided so many restaurants/eateries because I assumed I wouldn’t have anything to eat. I was wrong! Love all of the descriptions of the menus, including whether or not the utensils/cutting boards used are kept separate from the meat. This app will reduce a lot of stress for anyone who is vegan!
Dave-85208 - Great app for vegans!
Love this app and so do my tastebuds. I use this app all over the country. It helps my wife and I find places we can both eat when we're together (she's not vegan) and the really cool vegan only places for me when I'm by myself. I've even added a couple local places to the app.
SoWo1999 - Awesome app for vegans and vegetarians
This app is awesome for anyone who wants to know restaurants in the area that offer vegan or vegetarians options. It is especially helpful when traveling, but I have discovered restaurants in my area that I wasn't aware or! I use this app all the time! Highly recommend.
itsok2bgreen - Awful
This app does not spend any time finding and adding vegan restaurants to its app. I have had it for a few years now and the list never changes.
Besides it will list a restaurant based on what it menu says instead of verifying it. Often I have chosen a restaurant based on the app only to find the restaurant not open as in no longer selling food, incorrect hours of service, no actual vegan options except veggies.
If you’re going to list a restaurant and actually ask things like “do you have veggie broth for Pho and Ramen not just beef/pork broth?”
There are vegan restaurants, fast food places, sit down places, bakeries etc not being added in the unless you live in Seattle. Plus it doesn’t list the choices by distance from your location. Frustrating. So done with this app.
NJperla - Happy Cow makes me happy!
I have been using this app for a few years. Happy Cow has helped me find vegan food everywhere I travel. I've found cafes with vegan options all over the US, Italy, France, Switzerland & Germany. It's a quick way to plan your next meal or food shopping excursion. Love Happy Cow!
Beryl G - travel made easy
Happy Cow is the easiest way to locate places to eat when you are on unfamiliar territory. It is amazing to look at maps of
cities like Tokyo, Stockholm, Prague, even Paris (!) to see the abundance of vegan restaurants 🥰. Select vegetarian or veg options and the map fills up 😉
Simply_laurenc - Don’t wait to buy it
I waited so long to buy this app because I hate paying for apps. But this is 100% my favorite app I have. For the people who are writing bad reviews about it just don’t understand it yet. Download it I promise you won’t regret it!
Juliana1b - Perfect travel companion!
This is my go-to app for finding vegan food around me and when I go on trips. Easy to add new restaurants now and share my findings with the world too makes traveling so much easier when you know where to eat！
Cambridgemaja - Happy Cow never fails!
Only had great experiences with HappyCow. When we are in a new city in the US or abroad, even my family who are not all vegan asks for me to look at recommendations from HappyCow...we discovered amazing restaurants in Peru, Colombia, France.... this app is a must for all vegans and vegetarians!
allhess - A Must Have
I LOVE the HappyCow app! It’s a must have when traveling. I’ve found so many great eateries thanks to others submitting reviews! And it’s fun to offer my own two cents as well. The world is changing for the better, and HappyCow makes it easy to keep up!
elMustachi - Awesome
As a vegan pizza chef, it was a nice surprise to bump into an app that approached the vegan community so directly, for a while I’ve been hearing that people found me through happy cow(I didn’t have the app/account) so I had no idea what they were talking about, but am mighty impressed once i dove in.
Shearie - Mostly like it
A couple of things stand out to me as strange though.
Why is a popular chain with veg-options like Panera Bread not shown in results at all but Chipotle is?
For some reason not all of a store’s info, like for example the store’s hours, is shown when you view it in the Favorites screen.
Findlay Chandra - Keep me well fed in all parts of the world
I am a vegetarian, San naturally looking for suitable food while traveling was a challenge. For the last two years, since I downloaded the app, “happy cow” has solved the problem and always kept me well fed!
K9t - Life Saver!
I have been using this app for years and it keeps getting better! I love to travel, but finding food options can be difficult in many places. This app should be a staple for any veg who leaves their home town.
BOGNAP - Most important app ever.
I almost never buy apps but this one has been a lifesaver for my family, especially while traveling (even in different countries/continents!) - 10/10 would recommend (no, I insist!) for anyone on the veg*n spectrum.
