MO, Columbia – Main Squeeze Natural Foods Café


This vegetarian restaurant was recommended by Danielle on That Vegan Blog. The menu at Main Squeeze makes finding vegan (and therefore dairy-free) items easy, and there are many! I would say that 1/3 to 1/2 of their menu is vegan, including desserts! Plus, all of their fruit smoothies are vegan.

They have a pretty sizable menu, and are open for lunch daily, dinner every night but Sunday, and breakfast on the weekends. But you can see their hours and the full menu on their website (below).

According to Danielle: “the vibe was warm and fun, the decor was funky and creative, and the menu offered a variety of yummy-sounding sandwiches, salads, and wraps, in addition to fresh juices, smoothies, and baked goods.  The staff were friendly and helpful, and all of the customers seemed peaceful and content, enjoying their healthful lunches while chatting or reading.” You can read her full review here, which includes a review on what they ordered.
