This is our go to place when meeting friends that are vegetarian. We usually order the enchilada with a salad and their house hot tea.

I went to Blind Faith with my two daughters and granddaughter. Two of them are vegetarians. We couldn't decide which menu items to choose. We all chose something different and enjoyed all of them. I can't wait to go back.

Blind Faith is always incredible. I've taken many non-vegetarians here and they always really like the food. Vegetarians and vegans will find many good options.

There are Vegan options. I'm not vegetarian or Vegan, so I'm not the best source to answer, but I think you'll find plenty of options.
