Vegetarian & Vegan Dining in Little Rock, Arkansas

By

The South is the home of meat and potatoes. Fried catfish and chicken are our friends here. At times, looking around this Southern state all you see is fish fries, steak houses and outdoor BBQs. However, there are some great places to eat to vegetarian style! I've put an * by my personal faves, but most of them are good (and many of links go to reviews).

*4square Cafe and Gifts
405 President Clinton Ave
Mon-Thur 9:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., Fri-Sat 9:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., Sun 10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
501-244-2622, Twitter
A gift shop with vegetarian soups, salads, wraps and sandwiches located in the River Market. One of the best places to get a vegan or gluten free lunch in the city. They can create custom gift baskets with Arkansas foods and gifts.
