Chattanooga Choo Choo: All Aboard the Vegan Train


My husband and I went to Chattanooga last weekend for a quick get-away. It’s only a 2-hour drive from Atlanta and has a lot to offer in terms of outdoorsy activities and vegan food – two of our most favorite things!

Although the weather didn’t cooperate for us to do any hiking, we still were able to walk across the historic pedestrian bridge after eating a huge lunch at Cashew, an all-vegan cafe. At Cashew we got the nachos to start. I got the meatless meatball sub with vegan mac n cheese, and Kevin got the tofu buffalo bowl. It was all so delicious, and I was thankful to walk around for awhile afterwards to burn off some of the meal. We also had plenty of leftovers to bring home! Not to mention, we met the Chattavegan group, the brains behind this wonderful website that offers a complete listing of all the vegan and veg-friendly eateries in Chattanooga, among much more.

Later that day, we went to Ruby Falls before gorging ourselves again for dinner at Sluggo’s, a widely-popular vegan restaurant that’s a Chattanooga staple. We got the buffalo wings to start, and for our entrees, I got the patty melt and Kevin got the burger. I didn’t get the best pictures of the food, but you can trust me, it was all very good.

As you can tell, this turned into a vegan food feast for us. We enjoyed Sluggo’s so much on Saturday night that we went back Sunday morning for their vegan brunch. It was the bomb dot com. I snapped some photos of their brunch menu because it’s not posted online. I got the vegan omelette and Kevin got the breakfast burrito. SO GOOD!!

It was such a wonderful trip and nice to get away from it all. Even the Airbnb was perfect in every way. We’ll definitely be back – hopefully on a weekend with better weather!
