Candle Cafe West

Top choice vegan in Upper West Side & Central Park

The wide-ranging menu at this popular, candlelit restaurant is entirely vegan, entirely organic and entirely delicious: with options like spaghetti and 'wheatballs', seitan piccata, chimichuri-grilled portobello steak, summer-vegetable risotto and lasagna, you will not go hungry. It also has huge salads, fresh juices and smoothies and housemade ginger ale. Gluten-free options also available.

Their other branches are across the park on the Upper East Side: Candle Cafe and Candle 79.
