Best Downtown Italian Vegan Restaurants Wilmington NC


If you fancy some Italian food, there’s not a great deal, but Mellow Mushroom is absolutely killing it! It’s not all vegan, but they have a vegan menu, and you can really pig out on it.

They do a great Greek salad and a tempeh hoagie. Oh, and let’s not forget, you can also customize your own pizza too! 

Not only are they vegan, but they’re also one of the few gluten-free vegan restaurants In Downtown Wilmington

Every day: 11am – 10pm.

This is probably the best Vegan Pizza in Wilmington NC around! 

Restaurants In Monkey Junction Wilmington NC Vegan

Black Sea Grill is a good choice for vegans looking for a bite to eat near Monkey Junction. 

They are not strictly vegan, but with plenty of salads, vegan appetizers, and a veggie menu, we have to give them props for effort. 

My favorite dish here was the stuffed grape leaves as well as the shepherd salad, oh… and humus. But, who doesn’t like hummus?

Saturday: 5pm – 7:30pm.

Vegan Breakfast Restaurants In Wilmington NC

Drift Coffee Kitchen is the place to hit up for breakfast or brunch in Wilmington, without a doubt. I would 100% bill for their Açai bowl again, but their Chia pudding had plenty of good about it. 

They do not boast their vegan options, but they list all their ingredients, so you know what you’re getting! 

Opening Hours:

Monday – Saturday: 7:00am – 5:00pm.

Sunday: 8:00am – 4:00pm.

Not only are they great for breakfast and brunch but for lunch too and their glamorous restaurant makes you feel super cool! 

Vegetarian Restaurants Wilmington NC

A great veggie restaurant in Wilmington is The Green House Restaurant. 

Opening Hours

Friday – Saturday: 5pm – 10pm.

Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday: 5pm – 9pm.

Tuesday: CLOSED.

Their menu is inventive and plant-based. You can order for delivery with ease and feel secure that their menu is made with sustainability in mind. 

Their Gnocchi is delicious, but what I am more psyched about is their Marsh Hen Mills Grits. If you want only a snack, they do a delicious eggplant drip of focaccia.  Dessert is also on the menu, with a dark chocolate cake and something all too mysterious called ‘the cloud’! 

Vegan Restaurants Near Wilmington NC

Now for something a little different. The Panacea Brewing Company.

Opening Hours

Wednesday – Sunday: 11:00am – 9:00pm.

Monday + Tuesday: CLOSED.

This is another entirely vegan restaurant. Their whole menu! And what’s better? It’s not a small menu. 

If I were you, I’d go all out. 

Start with the cauliflower wings and chili cheese fries, Then have either their Carolina All The Way burger, or their Teriyaki Tofu Taco, plate up with a side of Cavatappi Pasta Salad and some Plant-based Slider. 

If you want to brunch on a Sunday, though, you should definitely try my favorite. Their blueberry pancakes with lavender maple syrup and a side of fruit are incredible, and it’s only $11.50, not to mention it is gluten-free as well! If you had a night out on the town prior, you can always try their ‘the hangover cure’.


Visiting Wilmington NC was a pleasant surprise. There were plenty of vegan-friendly places, and the ones that weren’t 100% vegan, had decent vegan options. I really cannot complain, I was fed well and had a nice walk around Wilmington NC.
The bottom line is, whereever you are, whether you are in Denver, Colorado, or Wilmington NC, you will always find some vegan gems!
