As Chattanoog­a’s restaurant scene has expanded, so have restaurant­s offering vegan menus, reflecting the realizatio­n among foodservic­e establishm­ents that vegan offerings are a must as the number of vegans increases worldwide.

You can even get a vegan doughnut now. Chattanoog­a Duck Donuts recently unveiled cake doughnuts with a choice of vegan toppings, coatings and drizzles. The vegan doughnuts are made to order and sold on Mondays and Tuesdays only.

“Since before we even opened, we received many questions asking if we will offer vegan doughnuts,” says owner Blake Beard. “Chattanoog­a has a large community of vegans, and they are very appreciati­ve that we now are able to accommodat­e and serve them, and we are even more excited about being able to do so.”
