Late Night Vegan Food in Milwaukee
Where can you find some good vegan food options after 10pm? These places have you covered!
Vanguard - Located in Bay View, this bar offers counter service dedicated to house-made sausages. If you can get past all the meaty options, you'll find a whole page of vegan menu options from sausage and burgers to their spectacular tofu!
Comet Cafe - East side restaurant and bar serving a mix of meaty foods and vegan/vegetarian offerings. Fantastic vegan hazelnut burger, gyro, reuben, awesome salads and much more. You might even find some vegan cupcakes or pie for your late night craving!
Ian's Pizza Milwaukee (two locations) - Get vegan slices on demand 7 days a week at their two locations or order a whole vegan pizza at any time.They have several flavors including lasagna, vegan sausage & pepperoni, vegan mac 'n cheese pizza, salad pizza, and tons of other great veggie toppings. Ian's uses Daiya cheese, and they have recently added Beyond Meat vegan chicken as a topping! Also ask about their vegan breadsticks and dipping sauces. They now carry Blooming Lotus grain-free, vegan desserts.
Classic Slice - Their pizza is a staple in the Bay View neighborhood. For vegans, you can choose one of their specialty pizzas or build your own with the house-made soy cheese or Daiya. They also sell pizza by the slice... and these slices are gigantic! They have delicious vegan pesto which is my favorite thing there and often offer vegan desserts.
Gypsy Burger/Burger Moto - Located at Rogues Gallery, they offer the plant-based Impossible Burger here! They have a vegan bun with all vegan toppings available--be sure to ask. They have unique hours, so make sure to check before you go!
Taco Moto - Located at Boone & Crockett bar, they offer some vegan taco options for late night eats. (Formerly Gypsy Taco).
Palomino - Bar and restaurant with a southern feel. They serve usually up until 11pm and have a small selection of vegan options for dinner. Vegan fried pickles are amazing! I also recommend the black-eyed pea falafel and the vegan wings.
BelAir Cantina - They offer several vegan options for tacos or burritos but make sure to ask for them to be vegan so they don't add crema or give you the "wrong beans." They also have an extensive tequila menu, along with specialty margaritas and other drinks.There are now locations on Water Stree, Downer and in Wauwatosa and Oak Creek as well!
Real Chili - This Milwaukee legend now offers a vegan chili I'm told. Their online presence is minimal, so be sure to confirm on your first visit.
Snack Boys - A fun bar located in the Walker's Point area that offers several vegan options on their food menu.
Pizza Shuttle - A staple for college students in Milwaukee, they do offer one specialty vegan pizza which I actually like even though the topping combo is kind of weird (tofu, artichokes, onions, mushrooms). You can also make your own with lots of different toppings. They don't offer vegan cheese, but the crust is--ask when you go/call to clarify.
Pizza Man - A local vegan reached out to the chef there and got this info on options: "We have three crust options at Pizza Man (thin, pan/deepdish & gluten free), and all are free of dairy and egg. For sauces, the only one you should avoid is our pesto, which has romano cheese in it.The classic sauce (old school, thicker & sweeter tomato & herbs), Italia sauce (more Italian style, brighter tomato with garlic and olive oil) and our Bianca/garlic sauce (it’s pureed very smooth in a blender so it looks and feels creamy but has no dairy) are all great options for you. We very often make pizzas for our guests that omit cheese, so the kitchen is well versed in these types of requests. We also have a much more extensive selection of vegetables and non-meat & dairy options than many other pizzerias, which most of our vegan guests greatly appreciate. If you were ever in the mood for something other than pizza, we also have a great entree call the Leaf Eater, which is vegan and has been a huge hit since we added it to our menu three years ago."
Goodkind - New to the Bay View neighborhood in 2014, this restaurant has already become a favorite to many restaurant reviewers. They usually have at least one vegan entree every day and they serve food until 1am!
Cafe Centraal - A large Bay View establishment with a huge beer selection and a few vegan options. Ask the wait staff about adjustments to menu items. Avoid the veggie burger (has dairy in it).
