Best Vegan Food Resource!

Like yelp for Vegans! It’s a great resource for wherever my partner and I travel to find plant based food. Happy Cow is monitored by actual people meaning that they verify each listing, unlike Yelp, and Trip Advisor where every listing states ‘vegan options’ when in fact they have zero! The more everyone contributes to the resource the more awesome it becomes.

You can plan a holiday or road trip to a fun Vegan location using HAPPY COW!

As a worldwide database, Happy Cow allows you to see vegan, and vegan-friendly places across the world.

Happy Cow, can help with holidays, day-trips, and special meals out, safe in the knowledge that we'll have somewhere to eat. The filters allow you to search for just vegan venues too if you want, so you can make sure you're not sat looking at Carnists, smelling steak fumes, or having to worry about deciphering an unlabelled menu.

Obviously a great app with great intentions

Pay for it and download it now, support the vegan community! It’s a great app that’s saves so much time trawling other websites. Has provided us with many great meals all over the world.

Would be great to see your profile in the app, and get some sort of idea or feedback of places you’ve been etc.

The search option needs a slight tweak - it seems typing in a location and hitting search on the iOS keyboard doesn’t do anything. Instead you have to scroll a tiny amount to make the purple search bar appear, tapping that seems to work.

App is getting even better

I’ve used this app for years and it’s great, especially useful when traveling but also to discover vegan places nearby.
Now with additional filters such as gluten free, which makes the search for a suitable restaurant or food stall even easier. Syncs across devices by profile and having access when offline is very handy.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for noticing! We are always trying to improve and appreciate your support 🐮❤️
