San Diego Vegan Bistro

Eat Good, Live Well


The Purple Mint Vegan Restaurant in Grantville, Allied Gardens neighborhood of San Diego brings healthy eating and traditional culture to a crossroads. The bistro serves vegan dishes fused with classical recipes that present an unparalleled twist on authentic Asian cuisine. The new restaurant leads the dining experience with a focused goal in mind to provide delicious, colorful entrées without sacrificing healthy eating.

Located in the city of San Diego on Mission Gorge, this small family-owned restaurant molds the menu to reflect healthy eating and healthy living and to promote a vegan lifestyle. The restaurant offers a diverse menu ranging from varied beverages and savory entrées to sweet desserts baked fresh daily. Each entrée is made from all natural, fresh ingredients that yield an overall excellence in food quality. Contrary to many other vegan restaurants across the San Diego Area, this Asian fusion restaurant offers varied food options outside of the standard salad. These Asian inspired cuisines look similar to its non-vegan counterpart allowing for a healthy, meatless meal without sacrificing much of the taste. Menu items such as the Crispy Egg Rolls, Lemon Grass Chicken, and Yam & Sweet Potato Curry are 100% vegan and made from meatless strips and soy protein. All of the fusion style inspired entrées, dishes, and recipes are ultimately created and served with the diner’s health and body in mind.


Always Fresh


Aside from the colorful menu, we also provides a unique atmosphere that contributes to a lively dining experience. The quaint and charming bistro weaves exclusive rustic design with tradition to create a place of zen and culture for its diners.  The rustic design and neutral pallets contribute to the shabby chic decor creating a special setting unique to the bistro. Meticulously placed accent furniture and decor posed throughout the restaurant reflect the culture and contribute to its essence. The simple yet charming interior design makes for a relaxing overall atmosphere.

For a unique dining experience and quality vegan food, The Purple Mint is truly an exceptional place to dine.

  • I felt like this restaurant creates an amazing taste without all the salt fats and oils that most vegetarian places use.  Even the fried rice, amazing dish btw, tasted healthy and fresh.
