At first, navigating a vegan lifestyle can seem daunting. But, with most things, getting started is almost always the hardest part. Once you learn that there is more to a vegan diet than just the stereotypical tofu and bland salads, it becomes second nature. Milk Street Cafe is proud to offer a huge variety of plant-based meals and we've rounded up the best of what we have so you don't have to stress about having something delicious to eat.


  1. Roasted Cauliflower Wrap

Chickpeas and cauliflower are absolute staples in any vegan diet and this wrap is full of them. With slow roasted turmeric spiced cauliflower, chickpeas, pickled power blend slaw, tahini, and toasted pumpkin seeds this wrap is full of flavor (and protein!).

2. Roma

Artichokes, roasted red peppers, basil, baby spinach, tomatoes, olives, and chive hummus served on freshly baked ciabatta bread.

This unique sandwich is stacked with all the goods. With artichokes, roasted red peppers, basil, baby spinach, tomatoes, olives, and hummus, you can't go wrong.
