More and more people are becoming aware that a vegetarian diet makes the most sense for their health, the health of the planet, and of course the well-being of other animals. Won't you help us make positive changes for the health of all animals, human and non-human, by supporting our progressive campaigns? Please consider joining Animal Protection of New Mexico, Inc. Learn how your individual choices and actions can and will make a difference in the world!

The restaurants listed in this guide have varied menus, all featuring some vegetarian dishes. Many will prepare additional vegetarian and vegan dishes if you ask. Letting the restaurant owner know that you visited his or her establishment especially for a vegetarian meal may encourage an expanded vegetarian menu in the future.

This is the second issue of the Santa Fe area Vegetarian Dining Guide, offered by Animal Protection of New Mexico, Inc. We hope that we have included your favorite vegetarian
restaurants, but if not, please let us know for future editions. This guide will grow as more eating establishments feel a demand for vegetarian/vegan food from their customers. Please contact us if you know of a business that would like to help us distribute this guide to their patrons.

This guide has been designed to provide you with a variety of dining choices. It is by no means inclusive of all restaurants offering vegetarian fare. We have included our favorites, along with many restaurants specializing in ethnic dishes or specialty foods. We've also included a list of natural food stores in the Santa Fe and Los Alamos areas, to make your natural food/vegetarian grocery shopping easier. Telephone numbers have been provided so that you can call to check on menu selections and operating hours of stores and restaurants.
