I live in Florida now but grew up in SW Minnesota. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> We have a friend who lives in Minneapolis who is vegan, so Jeremy will try to get a list of restaurants from him. We ate at a Chinese place near the University and at an Italian place the times we visited but I don't remember the names.

No way—I live on Minnehaha Ave.! We can start a club!<br><br><br><br>
Not sure what stage you're at, but I'm a new vegetarian (2 months and now pondering the vegan leap) and haven't yet tracked down a lot of veggie-specific places. The one I have been to is a raw-vegan place called <a href="http://www.ecopolitan.com/restaurant-minneapolis" target="_blank">Ecopolitan</a>, which has some great stuff. Ironically, I haven't been there since going vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
There are lots of places around here that have good veggie options, though. The first one that comes to mind, practically in our neighborhood, is the <a href="http://www.triplerocksocialclub.com/food/" target="_blank">Triple Rock Social Club</a>. It's a bar and music venue that is very vegetarian/vegan friendly.

in case you didnt know<br><br><a href="http://www.vegguide.org" target="_blank">www.vegguide.org</a> is hands down one of the best sites ive found. you can type in your address and it will give you restaurants within a certain radius of where you live

I think I've heard of Vegguide, but never used it until now. Man, there are a lot of vegan-friendly places within just two miles of my zip code (probably Nickle00's new zip code, too) that I need to check out. (38, to be exact.)

<p>I live in NE Minnesota by Lake Superior, in Duluth area.  There is a vegan community up here although small and quiet.  Thankfully we have a Whole Foods Coop with lots of vegan fare, and although I rarely eat out, over the span of several years I have hit most of the restaurants that serve vegan options or can easily be veganized.  The Duluth Grill has a few vegan choices, as does Chester Creek Cafe.  We have a Pizza Luce up here too.  Taste of Saigon I have heard works with vegans though I haven't been there.  Downtown there is Zeitgarst Arts cafe though it's expensive.   Groceries up here are getting more aware of vegan products.  I wrote to Cub Foods a while back (over a year ago) about including soy free vegan SoDelicious coconut yogurt at their store since they didn't have any, but did have SoDelicious icecream.  I received an email by the manager that they would look into it and within a month it was on the shelves.  There used to be a place downtown that sold hemp products and ethical and environmental friendly paints and cleaning products but unfortunately they couldn't survive here and left.  :( </p>

<p>I wonder if there are any other Minnesotan vegans around that are outside of the Twin Cities area?  It gets pretty lonely up here.  :)</p>
