When it comes to food on Martha’s Vineyard the first thing that pops into people's minds is “seafood”. Even though the island has an incredible array of fresh seafood restaurants and take-out spots, it has plenty of different options across all of the main island towns. If you’re making a trip to Martha’s Vineyard and don’t eat meat then have no fear, Martha’s Vineyard has some great food waiting for you as well. Here’s a rundown of a few of our favorite vegetarian/vegan spots on the island that you shouldn’t miss, even if you’re traveling with some carnivores!
Scottish Bakehouse in Vineyard Haven
Scottish Bakehouse is one of the main staples of takeout dining on Martha’s Vineyard. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner year-round in Vineyard Haven you’ll be hard-pressed to find an islander who has bad things to say about the bakehouse. The menu has a little bit of everything so you can come here with non-vegetarian or vegan friends. However, vegetarians and vegans on Martha’s Vineyard will love options like the Coconut Tofu, Mushroom Nut Roast, and a number of different baked goods on each day of the week - my favorite are the tahini-chocolate-oat cookies!
There are no downsides when heading over to the Scottish Bakehouse, but our favorite vegetarian and vegan food from here fits more into the lunch and dinner categories so keep that in mind when planning what time of day you visit. Check out Scottish Bakehouse’s full menu.
Tigerhawk Sandwiches in Oak Bluffs
Tigerhawk Sandwiches is one of the best newer restaurants on the island. Situated right in the middle of Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs, Tigerhawk feels like a place you’d find in trendy Brooklyn or Burlington VT with its Asian-fusion approach to sandwiches and salads - luckily for us, it's right here on Martha’s Vineyard! During breakfast time there’s an array of different vegetarian breakfast sandwiches and vegan options for avocado toasts. The vegetarian/vegan choices really kick it up a notch for lunchtime with multiple sandwiches and a mix of “salad-poke-bowls” with a Korean flair.
The only real downside of Tigerhawk is that it isn’t open 7 days a week and closes around 3, so make sure you’re not planning your dinner around this location! Take a look at Tigerhawk Sandwiches' full menu here.
Morning Glory Farm in Edgartown
Is putting a market on a list of the best vegetarian or vegan food cheating? Well a little bit, but Morning Glory Farm absolutely deserves a shout-out. Sure, anyone can go to their local Shoprite, buy some tofu, vegetables, and sauce to put together a good vegan meal but Morning Glory Farm takes it to a different level. In addition to your standard grocery items, Morning Glory Farm has fresh produce and an excellent mix of baked goods, a salad bar, and takeaway food onsite. Soups, mac and cheese, pickled veggies, all of excellent quality and ready to please even the pickiest eaters.
