Ever since the cozy, charming Specialtea Lounge hit the 305 in 2009, it has taken to wowing foodies with its impressive selection of fresh eats, creative drinks, and killer customer service.
The vegan "Olive You" features homemade olive tapenade, sliced black olives, mozzarella cheese, organic spring mix, organic spinach, and locally grown tomatoes.
Plus, the oh-so-accommodating owners will make any salad, wrap, or panino on the menu into a vegetarian/vegan dish by substituting a vegan textured vegetable protein for meat -- at no extra charge.

1909 Café knows hoagies. This Bird Road gem serves a crazy selection of sandwiches (and salads) stuffed with everything from smoked marlin to pineapples to prosciutto (not together, natch) to, most important, veggies. They boast a whopping six vegetarian options. Color us impressed.
Our favorite is the French Vegetarian, a flavorful blend of horseradish mayo, Brie, lettuce, tomatoes, artichokes, onions, alfalfa sprouts, and vinaigrette.

Purple People Eatery has been a hard-to-miss addition to our street-food scene. Offering fresh, offbeat gourmet eats (the mac 'n' cheese won Best of Miami 2012), this plum-colored purveyor parks itself at various outposts around Miami, informing fans of its movements via Twitter.
The Club Med sandwich is the stuff of vegetarian legend. It features a delicious mix of veggie bacon, kalamata olives, red onion, cucumber, radish coins, sprouts, tomato, baby arugula, feta cheese, hummus, and avocado sauce stuffed into a pita. Like, wow.
