Miami – The results are in for PETA’s 2018 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Cities in the U.S., and for the first time, Miami has nabbed a place on the list, debuting in the number-nine spot and earning a framed certificate for Mayor Francis Suarez to display. Award-winning musician Moby kicked off this year’s awards with a reception at his all-vegan Los Angeles bistro, Little Pine, on May 15. Vegan stars—including Kristin Bauer and Craig Robinson—appeared to help celebrate Los Angeles as the number-one spot on the list.

“From the tangy Wood-Bone Wings at Atlas Meat-Free Delicatessen to the decadent cupcakes at Bunnie Cakes Studio, Miami is bringing the heat to vegan dining,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All the cities on PETA’s list are responding to the booming demand for vegan fare with healthy and humane dishes that are as delicious as they are kind to animals.”

Miami’s vegan-friendly eateries include Choices Organic Café, which serves up tasty options, such as the Insane Mex, made with soy chorizo and cashew cheese; GLAM Vegan, which offers creative twists on classic meals, like its Spaghetti & Meatless Balls and Jackfruit Taco al Pastor; and the new Chef Chloe and the Vegan Café, whose flavorful dishes include Butternut Nachos made with butternut-cashew queso and “honee” Sriracha seitan. And Miamians looking for hearty vegan fare can head over to the all-vegan butcher Atlas Meat-Free Delicatessen. For dessert, swimsuit-ready residents can personalize their own cupcakes at Bunnie Cakes Studio.

Rounding out PETA’s list are Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Minneapolis; Portland, Oregon; Detroit; Cleveland; Omaha, Nebraska; and Kansas City, Missouri.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.” For more information, please visit

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
