Green Truck Pub
If you're in the mood for a hearty burger and fries, go to the Starland District's Green Truck Pub. Enjoy any one of their burgers with a veggie patty - black bean and corn salsa, avocado and jalapenos, sauteed mushrooms, onions, provolone and more.
Leopold's Ice Cream
Stop in for a scoop of sweet comfort at Leopold's Ice Cream. Leopold's is a staple here in Savannah, but you might not know that they have a large variety of vegan options on their menu! You can find your sweet fix at Leopold's as a vegan, from sorbets to floats to classic ice creams. The limeade float with coconut sorbet is highly recommended for a sweet and handmade dessert to stay refreshed in the Savannah heat.
