Places to Get a Vegan Meal in Syracuse–Zach’s Favorites

Many of us who live in Utica have found ourselves taking the 45 minutes drive to Syracuse from time to time--whether it be for shopping, food or visiting friends and family. I find myself driving out to Syracuse at least four to five times a month. What do I do when I go out there? I mainly go for shopping (at Wegmans) and for the many vegan-friendly restaurants out there. In fact, Syracuse ranked fifth as the most vegan-friendly city in North America in 2010. A few weeks ago, I brought you my favorite places to get a vegan meal in Utica. Today, I would like to share with you my favorite places to get a meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free meal in Syracuse.
