A shining light of vegan options in a sparsely-veggie land, Middle Way cafe is a haven for anyone looking to secure a hearty breakfast or lunch.

Vegan pizza lovers can get their fix at Fat Ptarmigan, where Daiya cheese and a wood-fired vegan crust have found many fans. Hungry guests can customize the toppings for a little extra, or make any pie vegan by subbing with Daiya. By far the best pizza in Alaska (and probably one of the few places to get a wood-fired pie)!

Asian-inspired fare and courteous service mesh together perfectly at Ginger, where plenty of vegan options exist. Many of the entrees can be made vegan-to-order, though the vegan curry, mango-teriyaki Alaskan tofu and portabella black bean burger are all already vegan. Large portions and Alaskan hospitality attract repeat diners throughout the year!

Look for the leaves! This funky barstaurant has an upscale cafeteria vibe and the rare choice of Daiya-cheese and housemade cashew parm-topped pizzas. Though pickings are slim, the pizzas make it a solid option among other vegan-starved venues. If all else fails, drink your woes away with one of their sustainably made craft beers.
