DaJen Eats

Chef Jenneil Ross started cooking for an enthusiastic public in the back of an OBT Citco gas station. Now her Eatonville shop serves up vegetarian pleasures like Jamaican jerk jackfruit sliders, non-meat patties, vegan chicken and waffles and her own non-dairy Irie ice cream. dajeneats.com

Mission Kitchen

Chef J. Sol cooks homespun vegan Latin fusion, including grilled tofu, stuffed plantains and grilled corn quesadillas. (Tip #1: there are rumors of a secret carnivore menu. Tip #2: those allergic to nuts should be aware of the presence of cashew cream on nearly every menu item.) On 25th Street, just west of South Orange Blossom Trail. facebook.com/orlandomissionkitchen

Eastside Asian Market

Nestled in the bright and shiny specialty market filled with “10,000 items” is a café serving spring rolls, steamed buns and fresh ramen, all vegetarian. Avalon Park. eastsideasianmarket.com

The Greenery Creamery

Opera singer and former barista Marie Mercado makes small batch local dairy and vegan ice cream in flavors like sweet Filipino purple yam, black and white toasted sesame and toasted almond-cherry coconut cream. East Church Street. thegreenerycreamery.com

Greenbeat

Entering the fast casual and green arena, these Orlando-born eateries proffer choose-your-own salad bowls filled with greens, grains and a wide ranging veggie list, often locally sourced. Chicken and seafood are premium options for the omnivores.  Orange Avenue downtown and at Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. green-beat.com
