15 Great Kid-friendly Vegetarian Restaurants in Boston Part 2

Clover Food

While definitely vegetarian the meals at Clover are not all suitable for vegans, although you can inquire about swapping out certain items. It is useful to remember this is a fast-vegetarian food outlet priding itself on the quick turnaround time with orders – so vegans could be at a disadvantage as certain innocuous looking products, such as granola, may contain some dairy ingredients, which the servers may not be aware of. The chain has 11 outlets in the Boston area. The menu is small, the choices are super-fresh – they have no freezers, so that is a given, and they may run out as, rather than wasting food, they would prefer customers to choose another dish. The menu changes seasonally to accommodate what has just been picked. The Chickpea Fritter sandwich has become something of a Boston classic – home baked pita, enclosing smooth hummus made with organic chickpeas, falafel balls that are crispy outside and soft inside, a cucumber tomato salad, some brightly colored pickled veggies and a drizzle of tahini sauce.

When: Open Monday to Saturday from 6:30 am to 11:30 pm and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Where: 360 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02215

Cost: $ – $$

Lucy Ethiopian Café

Website: They do not have a website.

While not strictly vegetarian – they do serve beef dishes, there are enough vegetarian choices to keep everyone happy. The kids will probably enjoy eating Ethiopian style where you tear off bits of the famous Injera bread and use it to scoop up items from the delicious vegetables platters without using cutlery. Its small, cozy, and plays Ethiopian music. And why is it called Lucy? The restaurant is named for the female Australopithecus specimen, Lucy, dating back 3 million years, found in Ethiopia.

When: Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. Closed on Wednesdays.
