On the morning of July 3rd we headed out from Memphis, TN and made our way south to New Orleans—my spirit city. The drive through Mississippi was lovely, and we even stopped in Jackson for lunch at one of the city’s few vegan joints, The High Noon Cafe. A couple hours later we were driving down LA 55 over the magical bayou, and into New Orleans.
New Orleans has long been my favorite city, but it was Maxx’s first time visiting. We were so excited to get to explore it together, but we didn’t expect there would be many vegan food options. At first a vegan New Orleans can seem like an oxymoron, but look a little deeper and you’ll find that it isn’t so. We were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to eat well in NOLA.
