  • Address: 316 79th Ave N, Myrtle Beach, SC

  • Price point: $$

  • Website:

  • What to order: Açaí Bowl, Bean Burrito, City Salad, Tofu Scramble

Echoing the laid-back mood of the beach town, Kindbelly Cafe welcomes you for breakfast or lunch with a menu that embraces health-conscious and meat-free options. Whether you're in the mood for protein-packed entrees, hearty grains, rainbow acai bowls, or refreshing smoothies, Kindbelly makes it easy to stick to your dietary preferences while soaking up the Myrtle Beach sun.

Craving something light yet flavorful? The quinoa cup is a perfect pick. With its medley of colorful veggies, sauteed in parmesan cheese, it's a healthy veggie option.

For something more substantial, don't miss the bean burrito with vegan cheese—it’s fantastic! While the family-owned cafe has a simple, no-frills ambiance, many customers love to take their meals to go, enjoying the fresh, zesty flavors amidst the beautiful outdoors of Myrtle Beach.


2. Jerusalem Mediterranean Restaurant & Bar

  • Price point: $$

  • Website:

  • What to order: Hummus, Tabouleh, Mediterranean Sampler, Baklava

Long before vegan-friendly food became trendy, Mediterranean cuisine already channeled the satiating, colorful flavors of veggies and legumes. Jerusalem Mediterranean Restaurant continues this tradition, with Chef Maksim Garby at the helm, bringing a piece of Greece, Israel, Morocco, Turkey, and Egypt to your palates.

The menu features classics like homemade falafel, creamy hummus, and warm pita bread—all bursting with authentic taste. Vegan diners particularly rave about the Tabouleh Salad and Batata Harrah, a dish of spicy, garlicky potatoes.

Our recommendation? Come with a big group of vegetarian (or vegan) friends and order each carefully marked meat-free option, especially the Mediterranean sampler. Be sure to order individual servings of baklava for dessert—it's impossible to share! For a fun afternoon, head there between 4-6 pm to enjoy the happy hour.

The restaurant’s ambiance, with its custom decor featuring traditional Moroccan lamps and design accents, adds to the dining experience. To top off the excitement, belly dancing performances on Wednesday and Saturday evenings make for an entertaining night out.


3. Villa Romana Italian Restaurant

  • Address: 707 S Kings, State Rte, Myrtle Beach, SC

  • Price point: $$

  • Website:

  • What to order: Fettuccine Alfredo, Eggplant Parmigiana

Among Myrtle Beach's Italian eateries, Villa Romana stands out for its gorgeous interior design and authentic flavors, brought to Myrtle Beach straight from Rome.

Grab a seat and prepare to be transported to a quaint villa in the Italian countryside, family-owned, of course, complete with classic Roman decor, grand murals, live music, and a warmly lit dining room.

Start your meal with Tomato Caprese appetizers. For the main course, you have several mouthwatering vegetarian choices — the rich four-cheese Fettuccine Alfredo, savory Eggplant Parmigiana, or handcrafted Ravioli with a delicious sauce made from juicy Roma tomatoes. End the meal on a sweet note with house special cannoli or Pistachio Gelato. Also, consult your server for wine pairings from their exceptional selection to complement your meal.

Service at Villa Romana is unhurried, reflecting the care taken in preparing each dish fresh to order. The restaurant also accommodates dietary restrictions, so guests with specific allergens should inform their server.

Visiting with strict carnivores? At Villa Romana, they have plenty to choose from, too, making it a perfect dinner spot for a group or family dinner.


4. Bay Naturals

  • Price point: $$

  • Website:

  • What to order: Avocado Sandwich, Breakfast Burrito, Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowl, Vegan Cinnamon Roll

Doubling as a restaurant and an organic food store, Bay Naturals serves up excellent vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan options. Menu favorites include their hearty veggie burger with vegan cheese, avocado sandwich, tortilla wrap, and colorful salad bowls with delish dressings. Wash it all down with a refreshing powered-up smoothie with heaps of hemp, flax, and chia seeds.

While Bay Naturals does include a restaurant, the setup is simple, with seating at the back and additional outdoor tables. You can expect a laid-back comfortable ambiance.

Not far from the beach, it's easy to pop in after a swim to refuel. Alternatively, you can take some healthy snacks from the store to enjoy during your beach day in between shoreside siestas.

The Mellow Mushroom is an alternative pizza bistro that’s seriously perfected its craft. Their menu is an explosion of flavors, with delicious stone-baked pizzas, inventive toppings, and calzones to die for — and they don’t rely on meat to deliver.

Vegetarians, don't leave without trying their Holy Shiitake and Veg Out pie. Polish them off with a giant glass of frothy drink from their selection of beers. Mellow Mushroom's Veggie Calzone is another hot item, made with generous amounts of spinach, tomato, ricotta, and mozzarella—we’ll stop you right there: this is not the time for calorie counting — but the cornucopia of veggies ensures a nutrient-dense meal with those carbs!

Vegan diners will also appreciate the "Build Your Own Pizza" option, which allows you to customize your pizza with vegan cheese and no butter.
