In a city known for t-ravs and gooey butter cake, finding delicious vegan fare can be difficult, especially when you don’t want to eat a salad. Many think that plant-based foods aren’t delicious or filling, but I have found a great place to fulfill all of your vegan cravings. 

CC’s Vegan Spot SoulVeganlicious, on Loughborough Ave, is a unique corner eatery that is completely free from all animal products. Known for owner and Chef Trezel Brown’s craveable vegan soul food and quaint, homey environment my experience at CC’s was truly enjoyable.

As a vegan, finding delicious food at restaurants can be difficult or even impossible, sometimes resulting in bland salads and flavorless options while my non-vegan family members can eat anything on the menu. Though, at this restaurant, there is more than just lettuce and tofu. From burgers, nachos and quesadillas all topped with in-house made “cheeze,” to appetizers and sandwiches, there is something for everyone, no matter their palate. 

I tried the Beet Burger and also sampled the Buffalo “ChickN” Quesadilla and the famous Double Trouble Burger, all of which were very good. The

house made cheese is exceptional and some of the best I have ever tried. Additionally, the ChickN meat alternative is satisfying and tender, not rubbery like some chicken alternatives are, and was seasoned and flavored well within the quesadilla. 


Along with the delicious food, I enjoyed that CC’s does not have traditional beverages or a soda fountain. Instead, they offer bottled Jarritos soda, which was delicious and added to the uniqueness of the experience. Also, the day I went was very quiet with most people picking up and not dining in, so I enjoyed the silence and the ability to pick a table.

The only negative aspect of this restaurant would be that it is not very large and that the menu and all ordering is online. There was a little bit of a wait for the food as well, but the website does warn about the potential 30 minute wait. Despite this, I give the Beet Burger five stars and I enjoyed being able to support a woman-owned small business.

I was very impressed with the restaurant, and even with some of the issues, I really enjoyed my time and look forward to visiting again.
