I have heard about Souley Vegan for years but not until 6 months ago did I give it a try. It's amazing! Tasty, quick and economical food made with plant based preparation. I especially love the breakfast options which are somewhat hard to find. My...More

Great choices. Authentic soul food that is vegan! Had to go twice on my three day trip. Po'boys and poppers were my fave. Vegan desserts served as well.

Had a quick stop at Souley Vegan for the spinach tofu scramble. It was exactly what I was hoping for. Loved the toast too.

I was staying in Hotel Z for a week and visited this place twice. Very friendly staff with good service, enjoyed the food and the portion sizes ensured you wouldn't be leaving hungry. Will visit again when I'm in the area.

Our family group went here for dinner recently because one of our sons had highly recommended the restaurant.. Before we even saw the menu, three things bothered me: one was the very loud music, which meant that conversations had to be carried out by shouting,...More

I've tried Souley Vegan so many times over five years. It just isn't my magic. And that's sad. I want to support and like this restaurant, but it's the worst of vegan and the worst of soul food. Yes, it's all fried. But what isn't...More

amazing Vegan food for those who miss meat!!
Souly vegan is an amazing restaurant with an amazing story! You MUST go to there web sight & check them out. Great collard greens, amazing no meat chicken & free oranges wail you wait. I am a vegetarian who used to love a good meaty sandwich & this place makes me forget all about my old habits. The first time I eat the chicken sandwich I knew going vegetarian wasn’t going to be as hard as I thought, as long as souly vegan is open!!!
